Three Phases to Home Staging

01.

Maximizing What You Have, so That it Appeals to Buyers

You will be amazed at the dramatic transformations I will be able to guide you through or accomplish in a “Power Staging” day using what you already have!  Successful home staging must make financial sense and I am experienced and trained in making the most of your current belongings in order to turn buyer traffic into offers. Moving furniture to provide a welcoming flow, adding stylish pillows, plants and accessories will create a home that buyers will fall in love with. We will start with a Consultation in order to assess your space.

02.

Recommended Purchases or Rentals as “Investments” in Selling Your Home

Working within your budget, I will only recommend purchases that will MORE than pay for themselves in the speed and dollar amount of the home sale. If you opt for the “Power Staging”, I will bring in accessories in order to get fantastic photos for your Realtor’s marketing efforts and to attract Internet traffic.  Over 95% of home buyers are online searching for homes BEFORE they visit a home, so we want to make an excellent first impression and compel them to come to your home. We will start with a Consultation in order to assess your space.

03.

Simple Yet Dramatic Cosmetic Updates and Changes for ROI

Depending on your budget and timing, we may suggest paint, lighting and other cosmetic improvements that will result in a high return on investment. I will tell you which rooms and improvements are “worth it” and where to put your money for the best ROI. You’re in the driver’s seat and will make the decisions on what you are willing to do. We share your goal in selling your home faster and for more money. We will only suggest improvements that we know will make a significant difference. We can’t wait to meet with you and get started!

Staging FAQ's

Although professional staging is a relatively new industry, people have been “fixing up” their homes to sell for decades.  These days due to HGTV,  home buyers have an “expectation” and are willing to pay quite a bit more for a home that is “model home” looking.

If you could get 10% more on the sale of your home, how much would that be?

Home Staging is the preparation of a home to sell by a professional who specializes in this form of design and has been certified and trained on the art of home staging.  Many definitions you have seen no doubt stop after the word “sell” and that is part of the big misconception and devaluation of home staging. A professional home stager has the resources and can objectively view the home as a product and highlight its assets while downplaying its flaws. The home seller cannot view their home objectively, while many successful Realtors do not have the time or trade resources to properly stage a home.

 

For as little as a few hundred dollars you can have a detailed list of what you can do to maximize the value of your home!  

Home sellers are usually incapable of successfully staging their own home. Why? Because our homes are like our children, we don’t always see all of its flaws. We’ve gotten used to the way it looks and in fact it is difficult emotionally to change it. If you can’t view something objectively then you are unable to market and package it effectively. Not to mention most home sellers don't "stage" homes everyday for a living. That’s what HSR Certified professionals are for and that is where the greatest returns come in.
