AtWell Staged Home creates DIY home staging plan for anxious – but determined – home sellers. After 14 months and no sale, home sells 4 days after staging.
A large 5-bedroom split in Katonah, NY is taken off the market after 14 months and no sale. The home sellers are trying a new approach – home staging. AtWell Staged Home develops a detailed and budget conscious DIY plan, aggressively implemented by nearly 30 volunteers over a two week period. The only items purchased for this transformation are paint and a slipcover. The approach works. Four days after going back on the market it sells.
“A family’s life changed and all it took was a plan, some paint and a slip cover,” writes Staging Diva Debra Gould. Read the complete story of this transformation in her article:
I am thankful and moved by the actions of compassionate volunteers, a caring Realtor, and committed sellers. Staging helps sell a home faster and for top dollar, but sometimes the rewards are greater.
