What can a $150 staging consultation do for me?
- Think of your staging consultation as a recipe for a sale. When I decide to bake chocolate chip cookies, I still check the recipe on the back of the chocolate chips package to get the ingredients and the right amount of ingredients to put in the mixing bowl.
- A staging consultation is like a recipe. It will give you the ingredients, such as furniture pieces and decor items to use with specific recommendations for the furniture arrangement, art and decor placement and color selection.
- The goal of a professional staging consultation is to result in a sale, just like the recipe for chocolate chip cookies is developed to result in delicious cookies.
- A staging consultation will give you recommendations that will enhance buyer appeal and create a faster sale. Such enhancement will include lighting, art, house plants, furniture arrangement, and exterior curb appeal.
A written staging consultation can help keep sellers focused on the goal, which is the
S A L E!
A staging consultation continues to coach and refresh the sellers memory after the stager has gone home. The words of the staging consultation are confirmed in the activation of the plan by the seller.
As a client explained to me earlier today that just because she had said she wasn't going to clean her closets, didn't mean she wasn't going to! Okay, I admit that I am still a little confused about what that meant. I think she meant it just took some getting used to the idea of the steps of getting ready to sell.
The point is the written staging consultation is like having an armchair home coach saying. You can stage it!
Here's what to do, and what's next, and a great idea for the closet is to use matching hangers and face all the hangers the same direction. Leave the top shelf and the floor of the closet empty.
The best news is that by the time the staging consultation recomendations are done, you
r e a l l y are done and ready for your move and a succesful sale of your home!
That may be the best benefit of all, reduction of stress of preparing to sell.
