New Hampshire Home Staging Consults - Two Hour Home Makeovers

By
Home Stager with Sharon Tara Transformations

As a Home Stager, I specialize in owner occupied properties.   Sellers who will be living in the home while it's listed are often overwhelmed with the task ahead of them.... preparing their house for sale.  What should they keep and what needs to go?  What color should they paint?  Is the furniture placed the way it should be?

 

two-hour Home Staging consult is often enough time to, not only create a complete to-do list for the sellers, but to actually make some dramatic physical changes on the spot.

 

Here are some photos showing the results of one such consult....using only what was in the house at the time.  (Please excuse the poor quality of the photos.)

The little nook, once used as an office/play area/catch all, is now a cozy sitting area.

Again, I apologize for the poor quality of the photos.   A professional photographer was scheduled to shoot the listing pictures, but it didn't get to that point.  The home never got listed because a family member ended up buying it.

Suzanne:  All of my consults include making any physical changes I can at time of consult.  I try to improve at least one room.  It inspires the sellers to complete the to-do list once they see some progress made.

I suspect after two hours of your quality work they see the value and hire you for more work.

Sharon, two hours for a home staging consult really is the optimal amount of time to both give them their to do list and give them an on the spot sample of how to make a room look so much better.  Your photos say it all!  And of course, they get to know you and hire you as well for the complete project.

Gene:  Not always the case....I don't always get back in the door after the consult.  The best case scenerio is for the seller to complete their to-do list homework I assign them and then call me back for a follow up "tweak" prior to professional photos.

Joanna:  What's really nice is when they call for advice on their new home after their house sells!

Hi Sharon ~ the two-hour consultation is an excellent resource for sellers to prepare their home for selling!  As long as they're helping with the grunt work and moving the furniture, it's an effective way to get the job done.  Great examples of what can be done for improved buyer appeal!

Maureen:  They help with the grunt work...I don't move furniture by myself!  This job was actually just me and the agent.  

Allison:  Thank you!  The place was a mess, but it had great stuff to work with.

Sharon, you did such a great job that you didn't NEED the photographer or a listing agent--family swooped in and I'll bet were quite happy with how you staged it--good for all of you!

Gayle:  Thank you!  I'm really not sure I had anything to do with the sale, but I like your take on it, LOL!

Patricia:  I'm a beacon of something....that's for sure, LOL!

Debbie:  I enjoyed working with the agent, and I've gotten a couple more jobs from him since.  I felt bad for him when he lost the listing, but he had a great attitude about it.

So true with today's competition in home selling your local professional Realtor will go the extra mile, plus with home staging you will get better pictures, more traffic and a quicker often higher offer.
