It's always a thrill when sellers or property practioners call me to tell me the good news: SOLD!
There's always excitement, and often relief. Putting your property on the market and waiting for that one buyer is stressful.
Here is a selection of projects I've staged that show the joy of the sale.
Sold in 3 weeks, two cash offers. Full asking
I thought you might like to hear we accepted a full price offer on the house and we have a second buyer wanting to make a back up offer. Your staging certainly worked!
PAUL BLAKELY, MELKBOSSTRAND
Sold to first viewer, before show day.
Yup! It's SOLD. Thanks to your skills. Almost got seller's remorse because it looks so good.
JULIE VAN WYKE
Sold in 7 days for a much higher price than it would have achieved if not staged.
We were sceptical at first (we're scientists)! But after such a quick sale at almost the price we wanted we're groupies now! And we're even telling our niece to take your home staging course.
Staged for marketing photographs.
It turned out beautifully! We are so happy!
LIZA JANE SABAN
Sold in a week. This was not a great road, so the owner was really happy.
I didn't expect action this soon! The staging has been instrumental.
CHRISTINE DE VILLIERS
Sold in 30 days. The house was on the market empty for many months before with no offers.
I only wish I'd known about staging before! Our home was getting no traction at all when it was empty. It's been a huge success.
Staged just before that intense first Covid lockdown. SOLD in a month, based on photos. Two years later, the house came on the market again and was not selling. So the agent used the photos from my staging. Staging works.
Liesa handled the project so professionally, and we got a decent price even though it was Covid.
Sold before show day. It had been on and off the market for two years unsold.
I've been so excited to message you because we got an offer on Saturday before we could do the show day! We are so thankful.
CHRISTINE MARSH, QUAY 1 PROPERTIES
Sold before listing went up.
I have some good news. I had buyers view the property on Sunday before it went online this Friday. They offered on Thursday and I accepted. So it sold before it went online. Thanks for your lovely staging.
Sold for full asking within 14 days.
What a result! We're so thrilled.
LISA KRETSCHMER, KAPSTADT INTERNATIONAL PROPERTIES
Development sold out in 4 months. The developers had been hoping to sell in 6 months.
I just had to let you know that all 19 sold out in Phase 1! We are so relieved and happy.
ELME RABE, WILDE OLIVE ESTATES
Staged for photographs. This was a tricky sale as the land had a servitude. It had previously been on the market twice unstaged and unsold.
We are so relieved we sold. We're a bit unprepared for what happens next because we weren't sure if it would sell.
The owner was not happy with the low offers she received when it was empty. After I staged it, she sold it privately for almost asking.
A belated thank you for staging our home so beautifully. It made all the difference. I sold it in 30 days to the perfect buyer for almost asking price.
When it came to selling my own house, I staged it of course. I received over asking before it was officially listed.
Now that's putting your money where your mouth is!
