Helping Seniors Get From Where They Are to Where They Need to Be...
I'm a Home Stager and the owner of Staging4Smooth Transitions in Southington, Connecticut. I specialize in helping seniors prepare their homes for sale because without a doubt, seniors have very unique needs. My team of experts can help you with preparing your home for sale to move-in services (a.k.a. "downsize design") to EVERYTHING in between.
Years ago I became an advocate for home staging because as a Realtor® I saw how frequently homes were UNDERVALUED.... simply because of the way they looked!
In this fiercely competitive market most sellers need to squeeze as much equity out of their homes as they possibly can. Properly preparing your home for sale can help you do just that!
Work with Me and My Staging4Smooth Transitions Team and Here's What You Can Expect:
1. Practical, low-cost and no-cost strategies for preparing your house for market. 2. An explanation of what you need to do, how to do it and why it's important. 3. The option to have my team do some or all of the work for you.
We'll get your house ready to sell and even help you make your new place feel just like home. Rest assured, you, your home and your belongings will be treated with dignity and respect.
Staging Is NOT Just About Making Houses Look Pretty
To me, staging is a PEOPLE business. I know how difficult it is to part with a home, especially if you've lived in it for decades.
I encourage you to take the time you need to sort through the wide range of emotions you're bound to feel during this most stressful time.
Overcoming the emotional attachment you have to your home is one of the most important things you can do prepare for a successful home sale!
Not Just for Exclusive High-End Homes
A lot of people believe staging is a luxury service that is reserved for only the most upscale homes. But I believe homes of EVERY size and price point deserve to sell quickly and profitably.
Here's a story from a satisfied client who told me she was planning on retiring in Arizona in about a year. She needed to sell her modest 3 bedroom home that she had lived in for 30+ years and wanted advice on what she should do to get ready. She was serious, motivated and she listened to my advice. This is what she had to say about her experience....
"With the market being in favor of the buyer these days, I knew I had to do everything possible to make my house marketable. I called Karen for advice with staging. Her knowledge and assistance helped me give the house the uplift it needed, without the expense. My house was on the market for 19 days when I had a contract, very near my asking price (I also had several full price offers). Thank you Karen!" ~Deb Clark, Southington, CT
We offer staging solutions for any budget. You don't have to buy or rent all new furnture.Most of the time we can work with what you already have. You see, staging is really about the HOUSE not the stuff. The goal is to highlight your home and its best architectual features....
My PURPOSE - My Passion is compassionately coaching sellers through the home sale process.
