HOME STAGING CONSULTATION & PLAN

Selling Faster at the Best Possible Price
Use Your Decor + Simple Accents & Personalized Checklist
to create eye-catching listing photos.
Adding perceived value to your home while appealing to the most amount of buyers.


Curb appeal is one of the single biggest factors that will help sell your home. So first impressions are h-u-g-e, and why we’ll start your checklist with the route buyers will take up to and then through your home.  Making sure nothing they will see is overlooked and everything's at its best.

When your consultation is finished, you’ll know exactly what needs to be done and how to stage to showcase your home to best advantage.

Your investment in a staging consultation will happily be modest compared to a first price reduction. And because your home is “owner-occupied” your investment is even smaller since your furnishings + simple accents can be used to stage.

Consultation Includes

Walk-Through

  • Inside & Outside

Detailed Checklist Staging Plan
What needs attention & how to do it such as

  • Freshen-up walkways, driveway & yards
  • Repairs
  • Decluttering
  • Organizing
  • Cleaning -inside & out

Furniture Layout Sketches

  • With your décor
  • Simple accents to add
  • Styling tips

Paint Colors

  • Exterior & Interior 

Premium Staging Service Available:  
HANDS-ON STYLING FINESSE

“We just sold our home and we are convinced it sold for $20,000 more because of the staging you did. Thank you!”   - Will & Bonnie, sellers

“You took an ordinary home and made it into an extraordinary home.”  ~ C. Barry & J. Wayne, Prudential Realty

 “…we got an offer on the house 50 hours from going on the market. That offer generated a sale of our home! THANK YOU - L. & C. Jacobsen, sellers
