Occupied Home Consultation
We conduct a complete tour of your home, starting with curb appeal, then the entry concentrating on such issues as condition, presence of clutter, cleanliness, traffic flow, furniture placement, light, and use of color and space. Based on time-frame and budget we will prioritize recommendations that will result in highest return of investment and increase buyer interest. If time permits, we can start staging at this time. - 2 hour minimum
Occupied Home Staging with Existing Furniture and Accessories
After the initial consultation, you prefer us to do all or some of the staging work; this usually can be accomplished within a few of days.
Next, we will prepare an estimate for your approval, describing the scope of work, a project plan and all the associated costs, including furniture and accessories rental, if needed. Our goal is to make this as cost effective as possible by incorporating as much of your existing furnishings and accessories into the showcasing of the property.
Upon approval of the estimate, the staging process begins. Prior to staging, you may need to make minor repairs, painting, removing and packing certain items, or storing un-needed pieces of furniture. We then do the actual work of staging by reworking furniture, hanging artwork and styling with decorative accessories. When we leave, your home will be Open House ready. We recommend that you have professional MLS photos taken.
Vacant or Model Homes
Beautifully furnished homes show much better than empty houses, allowing prospective buyers to envision themselves living there. The result: competitive advantage, increased pricing power and faster sales!
The initial step is to walk the property, discuss budget, time frame, and identify the target buyer with the goal of creating a beautifully staged home that will appeal to the largest audience. We want to create an emotional connection with the buyer.
A cost proposal will be presented for your approval describing the scope of work, a project plan, and all the associated costs, including furniture and accessories rental.
Regardless of the market, home staging is an essential component of selling vacant properties.
Styling or Interior Decorating
Our true passion is helping individuals find their personal style and what truly inspires them everyday. We will use existing items that you have and LOVE to serve as inspiration as a jumping off point for the entire project. We will ask that you be proactive and pull tear sheets from design magazines, create Pinterest boards, your favorite outfits, trinkets from your travels, and family heirlooms that will help us determine your personal style. Next, we can put together a shopping list for you or offer our Personal Shopping services for you to pull your total look together.
