 Why Stage & Why Stage With Us?

You may be wondering about Homestyling by Cathy and thinking “okay, so Cathy has helped numerous homeowners sell their homes without the headache that normally comes from selling a property.  How does that affect me?”

Here are a few things you need to know about staging and about Homestyling by Cathy. Staging can work for you.

1. It’s a competitive market out there.

It’s a buyers’ market right now. There are lots of houses and condos available. We will make sure we stage your home for the target market so that yours will outshine the competition!

2. Faster sale

Statistics have consistently shown that staged homes sell twice as fast as comparable unstaged homes.

3. Sell at a higher price

Staged homes sell for 6-17% more money than comparable unstaged homes. Don’t leave money on the table!

4. Less Stress

You want to sell, but just don’t know where to start? We can take that stress off you by giving you direction on the priorities. We will even come and do it for you if you wish.

5. Peace of mind

You can rest assured that when your house is staged by Cathy, it is showing to the best of its potential.

6. Flexibility

We are available to stage as much of your house as you wish or as your budget allows. It may be your whole house, the key rooms in your house or just one problem area in your house.

7. You benefit from our experience

Cathy has staged and consulted on $50 million worth of real estate in the past four years. We have built up a great rapport with our suppliers, which means we can get the best deal for you.

8. You have nothing to lose

And everything to gain! Did you know that the cost to stage your house will be way less than your first price reduction? A price drop of $5000, $10,000 or even more is not uncommon when the house doesn’t sell. The cost to stage the vast majority of houses is much, much less than that.

9. Bang for your buck

Staging your house for the market is the single most cost-effective way to sell your house quickly for top dollar. Even minor changes suggested by your home stager can make a huge difference.
