Home Staging...It’s Not Just for Selling Your Home!
Home Staging has grown incredibly since I began my work in 2007. Most of my work then involved educating the public (agents as well as home sellers) as to what home staging is.
And, while Stagers continue to help sellers prepare their home for sale to maximize their investment in the property, there are other times when we are asked to help.
Helping a buyer decide if the home will work with what they have.
A few years ago a buyer’s agent asked me to help her out-of-town client who loved a home but wasn’t sure if her furniture and lifestyle would fit it. I met the client at the listing (which I’d actually consulted on for the sellers...another story) and talked about her needs and her lifestyle. I was able to show her quick and inexpensive updates she could make once she was settled and showed her where she could place her furniture.
The buyer made their decision and signed the contract that night.
Helping a temporary resident repurpose and reposition her furnishings in her new rental without breaking the budget.
I had the privilege of helping a busy single mom who had just moved into her rental home. She brought some of her furniture and furnishings but left a lot back in her home up north. Naturally, she didn’t want to buy items that would work only in her rental.
Helping a client move into a new lifestyle.
Many of my clients are making the move from a lot of space to just enough. The dilemma becomes what to take, what will work and what to do with everything else.
Helping a homeowner fall back in love with their home.
Interior redesign is one of my favorite projects when working with clients. I do my best to work with what the client has or wants to keep and give them a game plan for the future.
Helping a new homeowner decide where everything goes and show the other possibilities of their new home.
Some new homeowners will know exactly what to put where, and others just need a little help.
So you see, Stagers aren’t just for home sellers. Give me a call, whether you’re selling your home or just want to fall back in love with it.
