Home Staging in New York City Spells Success

After a challenging year in New York, buyers are returning to the marketplace in search of the best values. Price, location and terms are still key factors in any sale, but never before have condition and presentation been so important.

Savvy real estate agents are collaborating with professional stagers to ensure their marketing efforts reap top financial rewards for their clients, their real estate companies and themselves. It is a fact that professionally staged properties sell faster and for more money than comps that are not staged. So the big question is, why aren’t all properties being professionally staged?

Too many agents and sellers are unwisely stuck in the mindset of staging as a cost or an expense, instead of truly understanding the amazing short-term investment opportunities of professional staging. For most sellers, their home is their most valuable asset and they should be determined to maximize the financial return on the sale of their property. As staging experts, we can help sellers and agents achieve their goals of selling for top dollar as quickly as possible.

Here are a few testimonials from some of my recent success stories:

“The Upper Westside property went on the market Sunday, January 10th for $1,595,000. On Tuesday January 19th an offer of $1,575,000 was accepted. Without your staging, we would probably have received closer to $1,400,000.”

Thanks to Nairn Friemann we received a higher than expected offer for an estate-condition apartment at Imperial House. I recommend her for three reasons: a) she gave my customers very viable staging options
at several different price points; b) she delivered a terrific finished product in quick time; and c) her prices were as reasonable as she was flexible and cooperative.

Staging works for rentals too!

"Thanks so much Nairn. You are the best! The apartment rented in two weeks with a lot of interest.”
