RE:STYLE Home Staging E-Newsletter - Summer 2010

Hi All!

We are happy to say that it has taken us this long (6 months!) to send out a newsletter since we have been staging like crazy, with barely a break in the action! But as you’ll see, all the sweat has been worth it.

Thanks to all the savvy Realtors who have urged their clients to stage (with RE:STYLE, of course :>)


Click on the links, below, to see just a few examples of what’s SOLD! since our last newsletter:


According to HGTV, empty houses take twice as long to sell (un-staged) as vacant houses that are staged. With $80,000 in inventory, RE:STYLE can help you transform those sad, lonely, empty properties into warm, inviting, SOLD! listings!!!

300 Wilton St., Ann Arbor--SOLD! in 1 Day! for Full List Price!!!

Olivia Samuels, Edward Surovell Realtors

2045 Bancroft, Ann Arbor—SOLD! in 23 days! for Full Appraised Value!

Martha Smith, The Charles Reinhart Company

2889 Barclay Way, Ann Arbor—SOLD! in 30 days! (and a condo, at that!)

Stephanie and Bill Flood/ Edward Surovell Realtors

1212 Henry St., Ann Arbor--SOLD! for 96.3% of List

Deb Odom Stern, The Charles Reinhart Company

DIY (Occupied Houses)

These smart sellers staged their houses themselves (prior to putting them on the market), following RE:STYLE’s recommendations made during one of our  “Do-It-Yourself Home Staging Consultations.” Great return on a very small investment of $!

And very smart Realtors, for offering RE:STYLE’s services, don’t you think?

4096 Westbrook, Ann Arbor – SOLD! in 2 days for 99% of list!

Martin Bouma, The Bouma Group, Keller Williams

8 Jefferson Ct., Ann Arbor—SOLD! in 11 days for 96.2% of list!

Martin Bouma, The Bouma Group, Keller Williams

11200 Young Dr., Brighton—SOLD! for full list price!

Sorry, it was off the market so quickly, no one got the “after” photos. But here’s what the happy Realtor had to say:

“My listing closed thanks to your help!  You took my 1980's custom ranch and made it look updated.  Your suggestions to the seller were right-on!  

This listing had lots of showings as soon as it came on the market, but not one buyer was interested.  

Then you came out and showed the seller how to stage her house.  We had two offers almost immediately, and my sellers sold for full price

Thanks again.  It was great working with you.”

Coldwell Banker Town & Country

1221 Wines, Ann Arbor—SOLD! for 96.8% of list in less than 40 days!

Martin Bouma, The Bouma Group, Keller Williams

3167 Lakewood Shores Dr., Howell—SOLD! in 30 days!

Candice and Kevin Schingeck, The Schingeck Team, Keller Williams

Even short sales can benefit from staging. Here’s proof:

8160 Thornhill, Ypsilanti – 99.4%--SOLD! in 7 days

Martin Bouma, The Bouma Group, Keller Williams

You’d never know this house was built in 1956—most likely from a Sear’s House Kit!

3081 Hilltop, Ann Arbor – 99.1%--SOLD! in 26 days

Martin Bouma, The Bouma Group, Keller Williams


This means RE:STYLE did some, or all, of the staging.

After painting much of the interior per RE:STYLE’s color selections, I shopped with the client and purchased accessories for her to do the staging. She was amazed when it sold so quickly (but not me):

8397 Trail Ridge, Dexter—SOLD! in 6 days for 98.5% of list!

Martin Bouma, The Bouma Group, Keller Williams

Okay, everyone should have sellers like these! After selling their last house just 6 months ago, in under 2 weeks, they decided to move back to Brighton. So, they used all their staging savvy from the last house (RE:STYLE staged that one) and then had RE:STYLE come to this house to put on finishing touches. And, voila!

12888 Springbrooke Trail, South Lyon--SOLD in 3 days!

Lisa Lawson, Coldwell Banker Town and Country (Brighton)

“Hot time, summer in the city; RE:STYLE’s houses looking staged and pretty”--RECENTLY STAGED


A wonderful mid-century modern home, in the style of Frank Lloyd Wright!

Introducing something cool: RE:STYLE North!

We have started a northern branch in the Traverse City area, and just staged our first vacant house there. We also did several Do-It-Yourself Home Staging consultations, so look for some Up North sales in the next newsletter!

If you know anyone in the TC area who needs a staging resource (spring, summer, fall), give RE:STYLE a call at 810-333-5240!

Check it out—it’s on Old Mission Peninsula, in The Bluffs!

Wabanaki Trail, Traverse City—Staged 6-20-10

Ron Tousain, RE/MAX Bayshore Properties

Heat Up Your Marketing!

Do you send SOLD postcards? Well, if RE:STYLE did a consultation for your client, or staged the listing (vacant or occupied), we have a proposal:

Mention RE:STYLE’s involvement (example—Headline: SOLD! Offer Accepted in Just 3 Days!” Copy at bottom: “Professionally staged by RE:STYLE Home Staging and Redesign” and include our logo, website and phone number); then we pay a portion of the cost involved in printing and mailing. It’s a win-win!!!
