NH Home Staging FAQ - What Can I Do Before My Staging Consult?
A Home Staging consult is generally two hours. Obviously, the stager can accomplish more in that time frame if the seller has done some prep work.
There are several things you can remove ahead of time, and save the stager from having to address them at the consult.
Trash, donate or prepack:
all personal photographs
all religious items
all political items
all trophies and medals
all personal documents (framed diplomas, degrees, awards, certificates)
1. everything from top, front, and sides of your refrigerator
2. all evidence of pets (Find a concealed place to keep pet food and accessories)
3. off season clothing from closets
4. medications and valuables
One mistake many sellers make prior to a home staging consult is removing too much furniture and accessories, leaving the stager with nothing to work with.
Other than the items mentioned above, it is best to wait for the consult before making changes on your own.
