Miracle Method Targets Realtors and Stagers To Help To Increase Home Sales

Miracle Method Targets Realtors and Stagers To Help To Increase Home Sales

Realtors and Home Stagers are turning to Miracle Method, the nation's largest surface restoration company, to update bathrooms and kitchens and help sell homes faster and at higher prices.

Colorado Springs, CO (PRWEB) October 15, 2008

There is no question that the current credit crunch has impacted home sales. Experts agree, however; that the homes that are selling are the ones that show the best.

Home stagers and real estate agents are increasingly turning to surface restoration as a way to update kitchen and baths to attract the attention of buyers. "I've been using Miracle Method Surface Restoration for bathtub refinishing and countertop refinishing for several years," says Tom Scanlon of Houston Home Staging, www. houstonhomestaging. net. "It's a buyer's market and nothing sends a potential buyer out the door of an Open House faster than avocado green bathtubs, ugly cultured marble vanities or old butcher-block kitchen countertops."

According to Chuck Pistor, President of Miracle Method, "We have developed a new marketing campaign using direct mail and personal presentations to expand our business with home stagers and real estate agents. We believe our aggressive approach will create a new revenue stream that will benefit our franchisees." Good news travels fast among real estate agents and stagers and the company has seen a significant increase in work from stagers in the past two years.

Staging a home for sale has become an art form and television shows like HGTV's Designed to Sell demonstrate how spending money in key areas like the kitchen and bathrooms can make a huge difference. According to Designed to Sell realtor experts, "The appearance of a bathroom or kitchen can make or break a house sale."

"When a buyer sees a harvest gold bathtub with speckled tile walls in a home, they immediately think of the thousands it will cost to update it," adds Scanlon. Professional refinisher can fix the chips and change the color of a typical bathtub for under $500. Compare that to the $3000 the National Kitchen and Bath Association estimates for the cost of removal and replacement of the tub! "Refinishers like Miracle Method can make a home look clean, colorful, and easier to sell than others," says Scanlon.

Jayne Sokol, a realtor in Westminster, MA, says, "It's the "wow" factor that refinishing adds to countertops that has helped me sell homes. Today's homeowners want a choice of colors in their baths and kitchens." Natural Accents™, a unique, new finish that can be applied to laminates, ceramic tile or Corian® surfaces offers homeowners a stone-look at a fraction of the cost of a new solid surface. "It transforms countertops and vanities from tired to inspired and turns lookers into buyers," adds Sokol. Natural Accents™ has become an extremely popular finish that saves sellers money and allows them to put a more saleable home on the market. Miracle Method's quality refinishing not only saves home sellers time and money, but the hassle and mess of removal and replacement of bathroom fixtures.
