Staging Services

As an “Occupied Consultation Specialist” I will show you how to prepare your home BEFORE IT IS LISTED so that it will look the very best it can in the online property photos and will appeal to the targeted buyer!

The online photos are the #1 reason to stage your home.

When a home is first listed, there are a group of buyers that have been looking for months and are READY to buy. These buyers are tired of looking. This group of buyers is the reason any home that sells quickly, sells for more money! These buyers know what they want and are willing to pay more to be sure they get it.

Why Staging Works

A home is never worth more than the first day it is listed.

Home Staging presents the house is such a way that the buyer can picture herself living in the home.

Staging a house makes the home look warm and inviting, and allows buyers to visualize the possibilities for the space.

In addition, homes that are staged are seen as “well-cared for” and “move-in ready” by most buyers. A home that is well-cared for and move-in-ready is much more desirable to buyers and therefore has a higher value. That is how staging increases the value of your home!

Portfolio

Buyers look at houses online before they ever consider visiting a listing.  Browse through a portfolio of room examples to see before and after pictures of rooms in houses of past clients.

Our work includes everything from re-arranging existing furnishing to facilitating repair work or painting. Different houses require different approaches and amounts of attention.  One of the biggest advantages to engaging a home staging professional, is that they provide a neutral viewpoint of your homes appeal.  This neutral perspective will make it easier to determin how to maximize the perceived worth of your most valuable asset, your home.
