It’s the waiting that can be hard for sellers. Counseling patience with sellers in today’s market was the topic in an article in March/April 2012 issue of The Residential Specialist, the magazine published for real estate brokers who have completed their coursework as Certified Residential Specialists (CRS). Karen was recently asked to chime in on how she works with her sellers when their homes haven’t sold.

“When we finally got an offer, you handled all the details so I didn’t worry about anything. You gave me the options and your opinions when I asked but you did not push me into anything and supported the decisions I made. It made for an easy closing. Throughout the entire process, from listing to final sale, you were always available and so positive.”


In addition to how one feels when presented with staged home, the designers had hard facts to support how important it is to stage a home in today’s real estate market. The statistics were compelling: national average days-on-market (an industry standard) with a staged home is 1.35 months versus homes without staging at 10.4 months! The cost savings of a faster sale on average can be over $25,000.

“Conscientious sellers, do a great job of fixing minor repairs and de-cluttering their homes before they go on the market. But buying decisions are often made right there at the front door while the agent is getting that lockbox open.”
