Home Staging Works!

For home listings in the Austin TX area, my home staging services can significantly help facilitate the sale of those homes faster by making the homes marketable commodities.

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 cause 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.

When your home has been properly staged, a buyer will be able to in a much clearer and easier way make a mental leap from your house to their HOME.

Message from the President

“Home Staging is essential in today’s Austin TX competitive real estate market.

It can be difficult for home buyers to see themselves and their belongings in a cold vacant house. My Home Staging Services will highlight your home’s best features to help the buyers see themselves and their furnishings in your home.”

Occupied Home Staging Consultation

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. This staging checklist will be provided to the home owner and the listing agent.

The consultation will last between 1-2 hours, and the rate is $175.00. After the consultation, if you would like me to work with the seller on a per hour rate 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 the carpet and flooring condition
  • Check all windows and doors
  • Eliminate odors
