Selling your home? The first impression is everything. Buyers don’t want to have to look past your personalization to envision living in your home. They need to see how big the rooms are and to mentally ‘move-in”. Are you connecting to the target market?
Whether it is a just a consultation or actually preparing your home by eliminating clutter and rearranging and editing furniture, Staging can be the difference between top dollar and languishing on the market. Since one size does not fit all, there are many options for staging.
Houses that have been staged by Claudia Jacobs Designs have sold in as little as one week after staging including those homes that have been on the market for a year prior to staging. Multiple service options are available to fit every budget.
The cost of staging is less than the first price reduction.
The 1st walk through is via the online listing photos. Is your home ready for its close-up?
The Staging Consultation Process:
- Take before photos.
- Walk through home with seller.
- Receive a detailed plan with room-by-room instructions on what to do before putting home on the market.
- Room recommendations can be carried out by seller.
- Or hire Claudia Jacobs Designs, LLC to set the stage.
