For Impact Interiors founder, Amy George (top, at right), staging a home is a lot like painting a blank canvas. While all of her staged homes are works of art, this year she and her team painted a masterpiece. On Nov. 5, Amy was named a Top 5 Professional Home Stager by the Home Staging & Redesign Association (HSRA) at their annual international event, the 2016 Home Staging Summit.
Home stagers across the globe were nominated, and more than 500 home stagers attended, many in the hopes of winning the coveted title. To be considered, home stagers must be nominated by someone else within the industry. HSRA requires before and after photos of the nominee’s Top 2 staged homes, as well as stagers’ closing ratios (average number of days it takes to receive an offer after staging).
A snapshot of Impact Interiors submitted statistics included …
- Average of Date Staged vs Date of Accepted Offers (Closing Ratios) – 21 days to the sale
- Average List Price of Homes Staged – $500K – $3.5M
- Areas you Service – Austin, Texas, and surrounding areas
For Amy, winning the award is a dream come true.
“I’m thankful for HSRA for choosing me as one of the Top 5 Professional Home Stagers in the country!,” George said. “It’s such an honor to receive this award, and is the realization of my life-long dream. I am truly thrilled that my work somehow made people’s lives a little better, if only for the sale of their home, then I feel like it has been a success.”
