Staging of homes for resale
We offer many services to improve the appearance and attractiveness of your home, whether for you, a buyer or renter. In addition to staging vacant and owner-occupied homes, we also offer home staging consultations, quick staging for photo shoots, open house preparation, and the staging of rental properties in Pittsburgh.
Relative to the amount of time and money involved, staging may be one of the most lucrative projects you ever undertake. Potential buyers aren't just looking for a structure to inhabit – they're looking for a home to fulfill their dreams and improve their lifestyles. Staging helps sell those dreams and creates a more emotional purchase that can generate more money for the seller.
TELEPHONE CONSULTATION - 30 MINUTES
Our telephone consultation starts with a simple discussion on your home's condition, state of clutter, cleanliness, traffic flow, furniture, light and use of color in your rooms. We provide basic suggestions to refresh your home and prepare it to appeal to buyers.
IN HOME CONSULTATION - OCCUPIED RESIDENCE
Home staging is ‘marketing’ a home to appeal to buyers and is accomplished by rearranging, removing and refreshing your existing furnishings - often without spending additional money. We start with such issues as condition, presence of clutter (decluttering), cleanliness, traffic flow, furniture placement, light and use of color and space. We give you advice on what to remove, where to shop, and suggest colors choices so you can begin to make changes immediately.
IN HOME CONSULTATION - VACANT PROPERTY
One of the difficulties that first time home buyers have when visiting different properties is visualizing their family living in them. If the seller has already vacated the home, it may be too bare for the buyer to create a mental image of the home with furniture. We offer a quick and easy consultation that highlights the character and potential of a home, so that prospective buyers can visualize more easily.
OPEN HOUSE CONSULTATION
We take the focus from creating a home that suits your personal taste and need for everyday comforts and move it to making your home appeal to a broad range of tastes. Livable or not -- probably not, after you've hidden the toaster, toothpaste, and laundry hamper -- the idea is to help people fall in love with your place and want to buy it at the open house. We move quickly with ideas on decluttering, cleaning, rearranging furniture, and maximizing light and use of space.
QUICK STAGING FOR PHOTO SHOOTS
Over 90% of buyers start their search online, the rooms must appear attractive in photographs or else you are a mouse-click away from losing a potential buyer. While not ideal, it can somewhat accomplish the same goals as a complete staging when time and budget don’t allow. The Quick Staging includes editing and/or rearranging the homeowner’s furniture and decorative accessories. Providing suggestions for temporary or inexpensive decorative additions for the shoot.
