Most buyers cannot visualize room sizes and how to arrange furniture. Most cannot “see” them in a vacant home. Vacant homes can be hard to sell. They are cold and uninviting, and buyers can’t figure out how their furniture will fit in the space. Without anything else to look at, every paint scratch, wall ding, and cobweb becomes a focal point. As a result, vacant homes often linger on the market. Staging will help you avoid expensive price reductions and the headache of months on the market.
I highly recommend Ann Cain and her team with The Polished Peach. Quite honestly, Ann is the only Stager I would ever hire to stage my Seller’s homes or my personal investment properties. Homes are very personal to our Sellers and often reflect their personality or design taste; however, when Selling they must appeal to a wider audience… and that often requires changes to the home or decor. Ann acts as the “eyes of the buyer” and has a super talent in the way she delivers that news to the Sellers making them feel comfortable and helping them understand the importance of the changes. Ann has an amazing eye for Decor and Furnishings. I am a control freak and always demand perfection… at this point in our relationship, I don’t even ask Ann about her Staging Plan… Every home she touches turns into a Model Home that shows amazing in Photos and a home that Buyers drools over. Best in the business!
A quick note to say thank you for staging my house. The following things really stand out: 1st, the house looked great, 2nd, the house sold in a matter of weeks after languishing for a year without a serious offer, 3rd, you were very accommodating to my schedule- all I had to do was walk in after work and say “Wow”, 4th your very pleasant to deal with and honor your commitments. I can and will recommend The Polished Peach proactively.
We are under contract as of today, and we are over our asking price!! Thanks so much for everything!
Thanks so much for your help in selling my home. You truly have a great vision of what it takes to make a home appealing to a prospective buyer. The accessories you provided were the finishing touch……for a very quick sale!! All the best,
I recommend Polish Peach without hesitation. My unfurnished house was on the market for about 6 weeks before I contacted Ann. Comments from potential buyers indicated that no one seemed to understand the layout of the home (admittedly a little quirky). Ann was incredibly responsive and timely with the staging. The final product was amazing-we all wanted to move back! And 3 days after she finished, we got an offer! Thank you again for everything!
Our home sold quickly thanks to Ann and the team at the Polished Peach. The energy and heartfelt care Ann puts into her work is unprecedented.
I have worked with Ann on several staging projects and have been very pleased with her service and professionalism. I am a huge advocate of staging for any property that is for sale, regardless of price point, but many sellers do not have a large budget (or any budget!) for it. Ann offers a service that in my opinion is invaluable to getting the home sold quickly and for a premium price, and best of all she offers it at a price that is fair and palatable for most sellers. Every property Ann has staged for me has sold in two weeks or less and for at least list price – if not higher! Ann is great at what she does – she has a good eye, she offers tangible suggestions, she communicates clearly, she is fast, and she is easy to work with. I would highly recommend her for any size project!
Ann worked her magic on a very nice house I was about to list. It had entirely too much furniture and “Stuff”. She was able to convince the Sellers to follow her expert advice and remove lots of furniture & accessories. She totally changed the way the house “showed”. We were under contract in no time. Thanks, Ann!
Ann is an absolute must! I was receiving very little activity on my vacant listing. The house was on the market for over 3 months with no offers. After staging we had and an immediate impact on showing activity and an accepted offer and closing in 45 days. Without staging, we would be the next expired listing. My clients were absolutely thrilled and were able to purchase their home Washington instead of renting. Ann was professional, easy to communicate with, timely, and the pieces she used to stage the home were high end and helped to showcase the home’s true potential. When I contacted other stages before connecting with Ann, most were booked 4-6 weeks out, Ann was able to get to my home within one week! I will definitely be using Ann from here on out for all of my staging needs and I highly recommend her to anyone in the industry.
