Professional Real Estate Staging and Design Services for Colorado Springs, Monument, Woodland Park, Fountain, Elbert and Pueblo
Home Staging/Real Estate Staging is the process of preparing any home for sale, by enhancing its features and removing any distractions so it appeals to the greatest number of potential buyers. Statistics back up the benefits of home staging regardless of the age, location, or price of the home. Home staging continues to have incredible Return on Investment (ROI) rates. According to the latest HSR survey of 3,500 staged homes, a 1% investment on home staging resulted in a 1,000% Return on Investment! Click the About Staging tab for additional statistics.
A key benefit of marketing your home as a professionally staged home the first day on the market is that it provides sellers an advantage during the initial weeks of showings when interest is high. The longer a home stays on the market, the further below list price it drops. The price can drop up to 1% each month! As buyers focus on newer listings, sellers are advised to generate renewed interest by dropping the price of their home. Consider staging your home instead of dropping the price…..the cost to stage is ALWAYS less than a price reduction!

Customer Testimonial:“Our Realtor had recommended his home stager, after having her over and interviewing her, I was not impressed. Through a web search, I found Front Range Stage. After checking out the Front Range Stage web site, and calling Cathi for an initial over-the-phone consult, I decided to have her out. Cathi arrived on-time and went through the entire home and property, from the front curb to the back fence. Once complete, Cathi sat down and discussed her findings with me. She then emailed me full documentation of what we covered, a full ROI report, and even some shopping ideas for light fixtures. I went to work on the tasks assigned by Cathi to get the home ready to sell. We then bought a new home and moved out; we now had an empty home. We wanted to stage the home to sell it faster. Cathi came out, and took care of everything. She called a furniture rental company, ordered size appropriate furnishing and brought in her own accessories. All throughout the process Cathi stayed in touch via email/phone and was very flexible in working around our schedule. When Cathi and her team were done, our house looked like a model home. Our Realtor was speechless, and we were truly thrilled. We put the home on the market and had our first open house. The house sold for full asking price within the first hour of the open house. To call what Cathi and her team does “Home Staging” is truly inadequate. Cathi provides a full service, professional experience for the entire property. Every time I thought about the expense of home staging, Cathi’s email signature was there to remind me “The Cost of Staging is Always Less Than a Price Reduction!” That is so true, and we are very happy we found Cathi and Front Range Stage.” Jeffrey B.
