The investment in Staging is always less than your first price reduction. Barb Schwarz
We meet at your home. We discuss your needs in terms of getting your home “market-ready” for Top Dollar Return. Whether you are planning to use a Realtor or selling on your own, we can make an enormous impact on the way your home is presented to the buying public. Using a trained design eye & years of expertise, we can skillfully assess all the areas which need revamping, restyling, and repair for a profitable home sale.
After the Consultation, you will have all the tools you need to get your home ready for market; you keep our comprehensive PreStage Review of detailed recommendations.
We're confident you will be amazed at how quickly we can see what needs to be changed to increase your home’s resale value and catch a buyer's eye. The result? Better online listing photos, which lead to more home visits and offers made in the shortest period of time.
Consultations typically take between 1 ½ and 2 hours. A detailed PreStage Report will be provided at the end of the consultation.

we’ll be evaluating ...
Quick curb appeal improvements

VACANT HOME STAGING
For Sellers and Investors
Surprisingly, only 10% of buyers have the capacity to see beyond an empty space, so the need to stage a vacant home is even more critical than for a furnished one. Vacant homes often sit on the market longer, without a frame of reference for room purpose, furniture & accessories. They also may leave potential buyers with the impression that the sellers are desperate to sell, resulting in an offer way below the asking price. Most buyers need to see how rooms are purposed, and experience how rooms make them feel.
We curate on-trend Home Furnishings and Accessories that transform your vacant space into an inviting and desirable potential home. It’s all about ‘Feeling Home” when a potential buyer walks through the door.
Estimates are available by phone. Square footage and the number of rooms to be staged factors into the estimated cost. If the numbers work for you, we will schedule a Planning Session at your site.
We meet with the seller and RE agent, review the home and refine the budget. A $200 Planning Fee deposit is required, which will be applied to the Staging Cost if contracted.
We meet with the furniture rental company that best suits the project. We select furnishings that will showcase the home in the best possible light, while considering your budget.
We meet the movers, direct furniture placement, and stage each room according to the design plan. It’s just not enough to use the furniture alone. . . . in selecting carefully curated Accessories & Art, we’ll transform the space with intention and style. Finally we photograph each room providing you with gorgeous listing photos.
When the home is sold and escrow is almost complete, we meet with the movers and de-stage the home.
