Woodstock, GA January 14, 2006 – Accent Home Staging, founded last year, begins competitive Realtor Partnership Program to encourage better resale values in Cherokee County and the surrounding North Metro Atlanta communities. The Metro Atlanta market is very competitive. New homes for sale are competing with pre-owned properties and there is continued risk of downward trending house prices due to the slowing housing market. Home staging brings stronger home selling prices, creates value and at the end of the day draws the best businesses, amenities and people the area – creating a viable economy.
In the latest report by Les Christie, CNNMoney.com staff writer,
“The United States is deep in its worst housing slump since the Great Depression, and according to a new report, it’s not going to get better any time soon.
In a new survey, Moody’s Economy.com says many metro areas will record losses of 20 percent or more during the downturn, with the national median price for single-family homes dropping 13 percent through early 2009. Factoring in discount offers from sellers, the actual price decline would be well over 15 percent.
Eighty of the 381 metro areas covered by the report will record double-digit losses, according to the report. Most of the worst-hit markets are in once high-flying areas.
Another factor was excessive new home construction, especially in once hot markets. As prices skyrocketed, builders rushed to take advantage of the increases, contributing to the now high inventories.”
Accent Home Staging views Realtors as the strength and driving force in the effort to prevent or soften the effects of the slowing housing market. Their desire is to help Real Estate Agencies sell their listings quickly and at the highest possible prices. In today’s housing market, Accent Home Staging knows their professional services will ultimately benefit the entire community.
Accent Home Staging’s Realtor Partnership Program is a tool to consider in today’s competitive market. Every successful Realtor understands the key ingredients to sell a house quickly and for top dollar. These ingredients include: well priced listings, a desirable location and visually appealing listings for potential buyers. Accent Home Staging can help significantly with the last and most controllable ingredient.
The Realtor Partnership Program includes: Fixed and Lower Consultation and Staging Prices, Priority Scheduling, Post-Staging MLS Photos, Rapid Edit Staging for Open Houses, Lunch and Learns for Agency Staff, Verbal Partnership, Network of Reliable Contractors, Accent Home Staging’s Team of Accredited Professional Home Stagers and Redesigners, Special Open House Detailing and more.
Partner Laura Jones says, “Let us be the ‘heavies’ or bad guys so you can focus on selling your listing and maintain the right relationship with your Client”. Accent Home Staging is trained to efficiently communicate the benefits of home staging to your Client, encouraging them with tax free incentives, higher asking prices and unlikelihood of price reductions. Home staging is not decorating. It is the art of de-cluttering and depersonalizing a home for sale, making it marketable to any type of buyer. Home staging costs significantly less than you think.
