Flip This House - Suburban Steal

NY Home Stager & Former Wall Street Exec Stages Quick Sale for Popular TV Show

 

Real estate house flippers struggling to sell quickly in a declining market are turning to home staging to stay ahead.  On A&E TV’s hit show, “Flip This House”, Grande Properties LLC transforms empty houses into a buyer’s dream and a full-price offer for the homeowner through home staging.

 

New York, NY July 24, 2009 – On Saturday, July 25, 2009 @ 11 am/10C, Grande Properties will be featured on the popular A&E TV show, “Flip This House”, which follows the ups and downs of house flipping for Connecticut’s largest real estate investing team, CT Homes LLC.  In the upcoming episode, entitled “Suburban Steal”, the team at CT Homes has called in Grande Properties to stage a 3,000 square foot home in an upscale neighborhood in the hopes of getting a fast sale despite a declining market.  This will be the second appearance on the television show for the company. 

 “House Flipping”, buying, fixing, and selling a house quickly for a profit, has been nothing less than challenging during the past year for many real estate investors.  Just ask Jewell Staley, Founder and CEO of Grande Properties LLC, a full-service real estate investing and home staging company serving the tri-state New York City area, including Southern Connecticut.  “In 2009 we are focusing less on house flipping and more intensely on serving our home staging clients to come out ahead in this challenging market”, says Ms. Staley. 

 

In 2007, Staley left her Wall Street career behind to follow her dream of building a real estate investment company.  By 2008, the company’s businesses included apartment rentals, house flipping, and home staging.  “Home staging” sets the scene for homebuyers through the careful use of furniture, color, art, lighting and accessories placement throughout a home in a way that showcases the homes most positive attributes.  The use of home staging as reported by U.S. Housing and Urban Development will help a home sell for an average 17% higher price than an un-staged home. 

 

From the beginning, Grande Properties has always used home staging to set itself apart from its competition in both the rental and house flipping businesses, with much success.  The company hopes that the television show will provide viewers with home staging tips that they can use to sell their own homes.  Putting a house on the market without staging it first, is like showing up to a job interview in your pajamas.  It won’t matter what you say; the interviewer will never get past your appearance and move on to the next candidate.
