In our market, the furniture rental supply companies are actually running out of furniture to rent. They have been in business for 30 years and this is the busiest year they have ever had.
I asked why in their opinion. They said that the market has changed and it has become a buyer's market, and they cannot keep stock around. More Realtors than ever before are waking up to the idea that Staging will help market their listings saving them money on advertising. Yeah!!!!
I actually had to go pick up a rental couch with a client in Toronto as they couldn't deliver before the open house that was booked in 2 days. Due to the increased demand they are experiencing, it was either pick it up or wait 1 week for delivery. If you have ever driven across the 401 from Scarborough to the Yorkdale Mall area you know how congested it is at 4 o'clock and they close at 5. Plus, the TV crew from HGTV, The Unsellables was coming to film so I had to make it happen to keep the Staing process on schedule.
I don't usually lift things that heavy, but the client said he would hold up his end of the sofa,no problem. I should have known better. I think I pulled a muscle.
So fear not Stagers. When you watch the Stagers show on HGTV and see the Stagers scrambling to solve all the problems that arise on a job, know that it will all turn out in the end. My listing set a benchmark price in the neighbourhood and sold in 3 weeks.
All I have to do now is find my keys so I can go home after another long day Home Staging. Where are my keys, I know I left them some place obvious. Advantage Staging will market your property to stand out from the competition every time. This property is now SOLD!
