Home Stager & Interior Decorator
Home Staging and Interior Decorating MADE Reasonable and Affordable
By working with colors, textures, furniture placement, and decorating items to accent the home's features, the end result can be a shorter time on the market and a higher selling price.
Because most home buyers make their ultimate home selection based on their emotional reactions to the properties they visit, it is essential to provide a prospective buyer with the ultimate home experience.
By home staging you are able to engage and influence the emotions of prospective buyers, taking them one step closer to writing an offer.
The way buyers interpret what they see, hear, touch and smell causes them to feel connected to the house they choose. By tapping into a combination of creative elements and consumer knowledge, I will work with the seller to create memory points that will emotionally connect with the buyer.
Once you have decided to sell, your home becomes a house for sale. Your home is a product to be marketed; and just like any product on the shelf in a store, it needs packaging and an alluring presentation to appeal to the widest market of potential Austin TX buyers.

With a critical eye toward the inside and outside of the home, I will outline a series of recommendations and actions that should take place prior to putting the house on the market.
During the consultation the home owner will walk me through each room in the home and where needed we will rearrange and place furniture and accessories to accent the homes features, visually open the rooms flow, and note action items of things to be done to prepare the home to sell such as interior painting, plumbing, hardware or light fixtures to replace and items to store while your home is on the market.
I will provide an extremely detailed staging checklist communicating my thorough notes taken during the consultation that will be provided to the home owner and the listing agent.
The consultation will last approximately 1 hour, and the rate is $175.00. To physically help the seller work through their checklist, my per hour rate is $75.00.
I concentrate my efforts in the following areas:
Inside: Eliminate clutter and depersonalize • Streamline the kitchen • Assess and arrange furniture, art and accessories to highlight the homes features and open the flow in the room • Inspect plumbing and light fixtures (recommendations and resources provided) • Inspect ceilings, walls and paint (paint color recommendations and resources provided) • Assess carpet and flooring condition • Check all windows and doors • Eliminate odors
Outside: Assess curb appeal including exterior color, paint condition, front door, landscaping and plants • Stage the front door, entry area • Assess backyard landscaping, furniture and plants
