A staging consultation Is a very detailed discussion, with advice and review of what needs to be done to your home to get it “seller ready” to get the best possible price for your home! This investment in a consultation has been shown to bring the seller a higher price for their home.
Everyone wants to make as much money as they can when selling their home. When hiring a staging consultation you will be getting ideas and suggestions on how to maximize your home's advantages and downplay any less attractive features. I'll provide information on appropriate colors, furniture placement, updates, and more, to turn browsers into buyers.
When someone hires me for a staging consult, I will come to your home and we will walk the entire property inside and out. Along the way, I will be giving you ideas as to how to make your home looks it’s very best. This might include moving furniture, changing a paint color, adding accessories, etc. to help get your home the most money that it deserves! You can then take that list and make the appropriate changes to get your home “seller ready.”
Pricing: $150.00 for a home up to 3000 sq./ft. $200.00 for homes over 3000 sq./ft. These appointments generally last 1-2 hours.
"If you are looking for a fabulous interior designer, look no further than Maryanne at Bella M Interiors. In 2018 we decided to remodel a large portion of our 20 year old home. We installed new hardwoods, gutted and remodeled our kitchen, a large laundry room and a full bath; Maryanne was there from the beginning. At our first meeting, I shared with her my vision of what I hoped my home would look like and she was able to help me realize that vision. She was involved in every design aspect of these rooms, everything from picking out cabinet colors, quartz countertops, tiles, faucets and sinks, door/drawer pulls and lighting. During the entire process, she was always thinking of what I wanted and how I wanted my home to look. Not only did she help with the rooms that we remodeled but she helped bring my home together with a cohesive look by helping me with interior paint colors, new draperies and rugs as well as some new furniture pieces and art work. She was always giving me great ideas on how to make my home look its very best. Maryanne has a great eye for color and design and she’s very professional and wonderful to work with! We still have two rooms that need to be remodeled; my husband and I were so pleased with all that Maryanne did for us that we wouldn’t think about asking anyone other than her to help us with our future renovation."
When someone is home staging they are making their home as appealing as possible to the widest range of buyers. You are not necessarily taking the seller’s taste into account. Decorating is taking an individual’s taste, their likes and dislikes, and building their home around those concepts.
Yes, it does! Many studies have shown that sellers make more money and sell their homes faster, with staged homes over non-staged homes. Once staged, homes spend an average of 73% less time on the market and buyers are willing a pay 1-5% more for a staged home.
While decluttering is an important part of staging a home, it is only one step. There are many other components to home staging, such as color choices, furniture placement, repairs, and accents. These create a sense of home and get buyers excited about buying your home!
