Get Ready to Sell Your House!
Springtime is commonly when homeowners decide to put their houses on the market. The snow is gone, lawns look fresh and Mother Nature does her work to create natural curb appeal. Planning well ahead of that listing time will make the process of preparing your home for sale go more smoothly and will certainly alleviate stress in getting all the little projects completed. We can help with that process any time along the way, but the very best time to call is well in advance of that listing date! Here is an example:
A client called us simply wanting information about our services. She told us she had several projects to complete before she would be “ready” for our redesign staging services. She also indicated that she was feeling very overwhelmed with all she thought she should do and wasn’t sure what projects were worthwhile and cost-effective for the asking price of her house. After explaining our staging services to her, she decided to start her home preparation process right away with our Buyers Eye Assessment. We spent a couple of hours with her while she made notes of things she could do to best prepare her house for sale. We provided her with staging tips as well as an extensive and practical guide for de-cluttering her home. After meeting with our client, we sent her a written report detailing the most important things she could do to get her house ready to sell. Our client found this to-do list extremely helpful as it “broke down” de-cluttering into manageable tasks as well as gave her a priority list of the most important things to do. One of the major things this particular client needed to do was remove old and outdated wallpaper.
A few months later after she had removed her wallpaper, our client used our Color Consultation Services. We suggested neutral paint colors for several rooms in her home that gave the house a fresh cohesive look and would appeal to a broad range of prospective buyers. Other suggestions that our client completed included updating a few dated light fixtures, having carpets cleaned, windows washed, and minor repairs done inside and out. With plenty of time to complete her projects, she was able to do nearly all of them herself saving her money and avoiding the stress of having to complete everything all at once.
With her projects finished and her listing date finally at hand, our client once again called us. She was ready for Redesign Staging of her home. Our goal was to give her house a move-in ready look using her furniture, artwork and accessories. Where needed, we eliminated pieces of furniture in order to highlight square footage. Furniture we eliminated in her great room, for example, was used to define a study area in the basement. Bookshelves from her basement added charm and warmth to her living room. Drapery panels eliminated from the living room in order to highlight a beautiful picture window were used to bring in color to the great room. A Parson’s table in the foyer made a perfect buffet in the dining room. We added some new updated accessories and lighting to give her home a polished designer look.
For this particular client, starting well in advance for her projected spring home sale paid off. She sold her home within three months and for a price that she was comfortable with. Initially this client thought she had to “get ready” for us before she hired us. However, she discovered that hiring us right away helped her prepare her home for sale in an organized, stress free process that delivered the results she wanted.
