STAGING VIGNETTE

WHY SHOULD I GET A STAGING CONSULTATION?

 

When you are ready to sell your home there are many steps to take to get readybefore the sign can go in the yard.  Now, you may be thinking where to start?

Do I really need to stage or not? 

Should I paint the kid's bedroom?   Do I need to replace the carpet? 

Should I take the pool table out of the dining room?

 

These are all good questions and a home staging consultation can answer these questions and more.

What exactly is home staging?  After all you may think, my home has already been professionally decorated.

Home Staging is preparing your home for the market to appeal to the most buyers to sell as quickly as possible for the most money. 

Home staging is NOT decorating.  Home staging is MARKETING TO SELL!   Home staging should include defining the purpose of each room and showcase the best features of the home.  A home staging consultation should provide directions on how to arrange each room, what to use as a focal point, how to display decor and include art, lighting, and plants.  In other words, your consultation should give you a blueprint for staging and marketing your home.

If a home move is in your future, now is the time for a professional staging consultation.

A consultation is the best investment bang for the buck to extract the most available equity from your home.  The consultation can include a list of furnishings needed for staging even for vacant homes.  There are many options for furnishings, yours, rented or stager's.  

One savvy idea is to purchase new linens you have been wanting anyway to use to stage the home for sale and move to the new home. 

Even if you are in big hurry to sell, get a professional staging consultation FIRST.  It will be t he best use of your time to give you the perspective you need to showcase your home for the fastest sale.

Don't skip the consultation.  Take a deep breath and slow down.  Make sure your home looks the best it can before the sign goes in the yard. 

Information from the National Association of Realtors tell us that the most interest in a home for sale in during the first 4 weeks.

The home doesn't get more valuable the longer it is on the market.  Sadly, the opposite is true and often the price reductions continue the longer the house is on the market.

To prevent that, get a professional staging consultation and get an up-to-date perspective on what buyer's want NOW and get that house SOLD! 

I have been giving home staging consultations for over five years in Abilene, Texas,  Call me and get yours done!

Great pience and as a professional home stager hope that as time evolves so does the staging industry.  A consultation is a small investment in preparing your home for market.
