What is a Staging Consultation?
Sunday May 30th, 2021
How the Staging Process Works
Buyers often make up their minds about a home within minutes of entering the front door, that is if you can even get them there, which is why buyers must be impressed from the moment they are introduced to the property. This is your opportunity to create that first, lasting impression that will sell your home.
Our goal is to assist you and pay attention to even the smallest detail which could possibly detract from the goal of securing you the most equity. A survey showed 85% of buyers prefer to pay more for a house which is move in ready.
A staged home will sell for 17% more on average than a non-staged
home, and 95% of staged homes sell in less than a week.
Step 1 - Staging consultation
A home consultation is a detailed report to assess the conditions of a home with a buyer’s eye and make recommendations on how to best market your home, making it more appealing to a wide variety of buyers.
A home consultation is a room by room assessment of recommendations of what may need to be addressed before staging. This report may include things that should be done, such as painting, de-cluttering, cleaning, maintenance, necessary repairs, furniture placement and updates before inviting buyers into your home to capitalize on the best return on your home investment.
Objectives of a Home Staging Consultation:
- Make your home look as large and spacious as possible.
- Make your home feel as bright and inviting as possible.
- Make your home look as updated and current as possible.
- Maximize the equity in one of your largest assets, your home.
A consultation will start with your home stager booking an appointment with you to go through the entire home from the inside out. Usually about 2 to 3 hours are needed.
Your Stager will make detailed recommendations on how to create the best use of space possible in the specific area.
Paying attention to detail, noticing everything from repairs, painting touch ups, to full on painting of walls and trim, caulking of trim, or windows, de-cluttering, cleaning, and rearranging furniture.
Step 2 - Pre Staging
Once the homeowner has completed their homework in the detailed report such as the home repairs, de-cluttering, painting, furniture removal or placement and cleaning, staging can begin.
Step 3 - Staging
Occupied homes may simply need to change furniture placement to create flow and function to a room and may need only some accessories, while others may need to remove and store furniture and bring in rental pieces to highlight the home. Your Stager will guide you on the best recommendations to showcase your home for a quick sale and maximum price.
