If you are living in the home until you sell, you can set up an Owner Occupied Staging Consultation and decorate your home like a professional! A staging consultation is a meeting you can set up with me, Brandi. I visit with you at your home and help you with things like how to de-clutter, de-personalize and how to re-configure your furniture in a way that attracts the highest number of buyers but is still live-able.
Austin home prices have soared in the last few years. When listing your home be sure the photos portray a home that is worth the price. Presenting uncluttered, bright and well-put-together spaces, will make an impression on buyers and realtors. Keep in mind how many homes are put on the market every day in Austin. Here's a number in case you didn't know......according to ABOR, 29,569 homes were sold in 2016 alone! I promise, you want your home to be the nicest one they look at! You can read my Guide to Attracting Energetic Buyers here.
Homes sell 30-50% faster when they are professionally staged. Buyers who are shopping around feel something about a home as soon as they park in front of it! It takes 15 seconds to make a first impression to be exact. They ask themselves "Can I imagine myself calling this place home?" If they walk in and it looks like a model home (well kept and crisp with a modern design) they will WANT to call it home!
I meet you at your home, and we take a tour through each room we are going to stage You will want to have a list of questions ready for me and your favorite notepad for this. I'll be giving you all the tips and tricks to stage your home like a professional and be ready for open houses. Think of it as your very own interior design course.
We will be transforming your everyday home into a model home! I make sure to keep in mind the items you and your family use everyday, but there is plenty in your home that need to be packed away. This process includes changing the furniture, decor and art layout, educating you each step of the way. I break it all down into a process that's easy for everyone.
Many stagers will end the consultation and leave you only with the notes you took. I think that's really overwhelming for most of my clients, so I create a customized PDF task list for you. It's very detailed and gives you all info you need to confidently stage your home without pulling your hair out! You can always call me if you have any questions.
You will receive info like trends in real estate and what buyers are looking for in a home.
