A message from Joanne:
Several years ago, I had Shannon stage my house before I put it on the market. To my surprise, it sold for full asking price to the very first couple that looked at it. Incredibly, the buyers made their offer on the spot, before they even finished viewing it! I knew that the staging had helped my average family home sell so quickly, and I wanted to learn more about how this remarkable new industry uses simple, low-cost techniques to make ordinary homes extraordinary. When Shannon asked me to co-author Consider It Sold, I was happy to help her share everything she knows about home staging so that anyone can apply the same principles to their own home, whether they’re selling it or just wanting to improve it for their own enjoyment.
As we were finishing the book, I had the chance to apply Shannon’s tips to my parents’ house. Although attractive, their house had been on the market for months, generating little interest and no offers. Using the as-yet unpublished book as my guide, I staged it in only two days. The next day, it sold for the asking price! It was another success for home staging, and the first success for Consider It Sold.
A message from Shannon:
As a home stager, I’ve seen firsthand just how dramatically staging can improve a listing’s perceived value. For me, though, my staging work is about so much more than making a home look good: It’s about helping people feel proud of their property and receive what they deserve for it when it sells. And it’s about helping people to say goodbye to their home and look forward to the next chapter in their lives. Happy staging as you move on!
