So apparently the news magazine 20/20 did a segment on the real estate boom/bubble/burst. We know this because Property Grunt dedicated a novella?a tragicomedy, we'll call it?to responding to the story. The Grunt let it be known that he has some strong opinions on the business of staging, which, to the hopelessly uninformed, means making your home look not disgusting when you're trying to sell it. Is it that simple? We'll let PropGrunt explaint:
But the scariest part of this program was seeing this herd of husky housewives called ASPs. Which stand for accredited staging professionals and are led by their staging coach Barb Schwarz.Yo Barb Schwarz: You just got served!
When asked what staging is. She goes into this long convoluted explanation.
"Staging is using your time frame and your budget to prepare your home for sales so it appeals to most buyers."
THIS IS NOT ROCket SCIENCE! ALL YOU ARE DOING IS REARRANGING FURNITURE AND DOING SOME LANDSCAPING IN ORDER TO MAKE THE PROPERY BUYER FRIENDLY!
