Latest Colorado Springs Gazette Article Reports Home Sales and Prices Soar

From the Colorado Springs Gazette October 8th, 2014 “According to the Pikes Peak Association of Realtors, home sales and prices rose again last month which is a 24% jump from the same month last year and the fourth time in the last five months that sales have increased.  Last month’s sales also were the highest number for any September since 2005.  Year-to-date home sales are running slightly ahead of 2013.  Home sales for the first nine months of the year are up 1.2% over the same period last year.  The median price of homes sold rose to $225,000 in September, up 5.6% from the same month in 2013 and have increased five straight months on a year-over-year basis.”

The article also mentions that inventory (the number of homes currently on the market) is down.  With inventory down 5.9% from this time last year, “homeowners stand a better chance of getting their asking price when it’s time to sell”.

The BEST way to get top dollar for your home is to ensure it’s presented and marketed well.  When looking at multiple homes, it’s obvious which ones are receiving the most buyer traffic and offers…those that are professionally staged and move-in-ready!  Click on this Before and After video for our latest home transformation!

USAA is a trusted source for many military families in Colorado Springs.  I was glad to see the Spring 2014 Spring issue of USAA Magazine include the benefits of Home Staging to “Help Sell Your Home in a Hurry”.  Here are the highlights: Touch-up and make necessary repairs so the home is move-in ready, Stage your home, and invest in professional photos (9 in 10 people shopping online will view the photos and make fast decisions on which homes to visit).  Statistics continue to support home staging services.  The Real Estate Staging Association reports homes that are professionally staged sell 73% faster!

Press Release – Home Staging Expert

 Front Range Stage Real Estate Staging

Now…With   More Home Staging and Interior Re-design Expertise

Colorado Springs, CO April 6, 2013 – Cathi Rios, Owner and President of Front Range Stage is proud to introduce Kim Roff as the newest fully trained and very talented associate able to provide a full range of Real Estate Staging and Interior Re-design services.  Congratulations to Kim, a design veteran of Colorado Springs, for earning Home Staging Expert credentials! Home staging offers home sellers a competitive edge by bringing out the best features of the home so it can sell faster and for top dollar.  This is usually done by using furniture and accessories that sellers already have in the home.  Front Range Stage utilizes a workbook approach where sellers accompany a professional on a walk thru of their home culminating with a Return on Investment top 5 Priority list.  This $150 investment saves Realtors countless hours as clients work with Real Estate Stagers to complete their personal and very detailed Action Plan before the home is listed.  Vacant home staging services are also   offered. Interior Re-design is the art of using what people already have in the home   to transform their space so that it becomes more attractive, comfortable, and   reflective of the home owner’s personality.  This is a great service for new home buyers or existing home owners wanting to make over their space or need some extra help arranging furniture, selecting paint colors, and making other design choices within   their home.  One of the least expensive ways a home owner can upgrade their home is with a custom mirror frame.  Builder-grade bathroom mirrors can be transformed into custom mirrors by selecting from over 60 colors and styles of frames that simply overlay the existing mirror.  Front Range Stage is the only recognized vendor in Colorado Springs offering this quick, no demolition required, design service.

About Front Range Stage:  Front Range Stage, HSR certified Real Estate Staging and Interior Re-design, offers services to homeowners, investors and builders alike, providing an effortless and inexpensive way to make properties look their best and sell their fastest!
