After the initial walk-through, you can expect the stager to go back to each room and then give you a detialed vision and plan for what needs to be done to turn your house into a show home. Remember that none of this advice is personal. The time has come to turn your home into a product that the maximum number of potential buyers will fall in love with.
Staging Diva Graduate Home Stagers look in closets and built-in cabinets (because home buyers do this too) and give you strategies to cope with the clutter of daily life.
The stager may recommend items to be removed, suggest new furniture placement or paint colors, rearrange art and accessories, or take measurements for rental items.
Depending on the stager's experience, the size of your home and it's current state, this process will take from two to five hours.
At the end of the home staging consultation, some of your rooms may be already transformed, others may have a 'to do' list. It is completely up to you how many of the items in the plan you want the Staging Diva Graduate Home Stager to handle for you or how much you would like to do yourself.
The bottom line is that with an investment of only a few hours and under a thousand dollars, you'll have a complete plan of what needs to be done and much of it may already be done for you.
If your home needs rental furniture art and accessories, your investment may run into the $3,000 to $8,000 range, but the Home Stager will be able to assess this in your initial phone conversation or during the Home Staging Consultation. Again, your home staging investment will be less than your first price reduction if your house doesn't sell. And, you'll be setting the stage for potentially selling within days at above asking price.
