  • Very cool, thanks so much for commenting!

    Yes, it has been rough in the market. I have certainly had a difficult time asking sellers to stage, it's just something they are not willing to invest in since the market is rough and their ROI can be low. Which is hard to see, because good staging will definitely help them sell.
