Q. What does the Home Staging involve?
A. The initial consultation involves a meeting with you, and consists of a room by room walk through your home identifying what improvements could be made in the presentation and decoration of your home, which could add value to gain a higher price or a quicker sale. Suggestions on the outside of your property will also be included. I will make verbal recommendations with estimates of costs. The client makes notes to enable you to decide whether you want to implement the changes yourself or consider opting for further assistance.
Q.What if I need more help, but still want to do the work myself?
A. I will provide a full written report. The report includes the current value of your property, provides guidelines on how to achieve the best results for each room and options available. These options will be listed with a task list and estimated costs within your budget. Details of final styling i.e. flowers, towels etc. and an estimated added percentage to the value of your property.
Q. If I decide I need you to implement the changes for me?
A. If you want me to carry out the recommended changes on your behalf the the full Home Staging Service will be provided. This includes a written report, budget breakdown, and a time plan of work schedule. The cost will be dependent on the amount of time and work required. Sometimes it is just a matter of de-cluttering to realize the property’s true potential.
