Home Staging works even during Safer at Home

This beautifully renovated townhouse went on the market just as Bay County was starting to hear of precautions. Coastal Stagedesigns provided Home Staging services, carefully ensuring all items used were sanitized. After going on the market, the home sold in just 10 days.

“Your staging sold my property!” was the news from Joe Metz of Menlo Funding Corporation (MFC). "I’m convinced that your Staging is selling our houses faster and for more money. The reason I say that is that the buyers want to buy your furniture.” Indeed, not only were the buyers attracted to the home because the Staging influenced their decision, they also wanted to purchase all the furnishings! Metz worked with Coastal Stagedesigns to provide a cost for the furnishings and negotiated with the buyers to include in the sale price.

“People love your Staging so much that this could be a good incentive” according to Metz. MFC has been working diligently over the past year to renovate homes damaged by Hurricane Michael and sell these beautifully appointed homes to local buyers at an affordable price. Now whenever MFC lists one of their properties, not only will it be Staged by Coastal Stagedesigns, but the furnishings, artwork and accessories will all be for sale.

“During these unprecedented times, realtors and homeowners need to be creative with how they market their homes for sale” said Carl Dismukes, owner of Coastal Stagedesigns. “As always, Staging can help a home sell faster and for more money according to numerous statistics. Now offering furnished homes can give a seller yet another way to entice buyers.”

Dismukes is an award-winning Accredited Staging Professional for his creativity in Staging vacant properties. Currently, Coastal Stagedesigns is carefully following state orders regarding essential work, but will be ready to provide full service once the green light is given. In the meantime, Dismukes is able to provide consultation via video conferencing and with photographs for the homeowner to perform the Staging themselves with their current furnishings.
