They were a charming couple and we chatted a little as we were boxing up our staging items and they were arranging their boxes. We moved into what the marketing literature called the “sun room” (an enclosed porch) and the couple told us that they had liked the staging so much they were going to replicate it as best as they could. I told them where I had purchased most of the items and also told them I was pleased they were so impressed with the staging. They went on to say that they loved the little “scene” I had placed in the kitchen, it had given them a really good laugh. (Our POETM scenes are one of our APSD trademarks, and one of the things that help us to stand out over our competition. We capture the potential buyers’ interest and emotions so they fall in love with the home.)
As professional home stagers we do not always receive feedback on how our staging is received by potential buyers. We can judge by the time on market and feedback from the seller or realtor but it’s always better to get feedback direct from the target buyers. So although the circumstance weren’t the best, the outcome was rewarding.
