What is House Staging? Staging your home is an essential part of selling your home. If you want top dollar for your home, you must set the stage properly throughout the house to create an immediate interest in your property. Your personal tastes and decor may not fall in line with what typically will set your house up for a quick sell.

The National Association of Realtors expects sales of existing homes to remain essentially flat, declining a slight 0.6 percent from 6.48 million in 2006 to 6.44 million in 2007. New home sales are expected to fall about 10.4 percent, from 1.06 million in 2006 to 950,000 this year. What can you do to set yourself apart from the rest of the homes on the market? (READ MORE)

Home Staging Consultation: This service is a collaborative effort. I will meet with you and create a list of home staging actions for both the inside and outside of your house. You, the home owner, will now stage the house based upon my recommendations and detailed instructions. When staging is complete I will return and review the changes that have been made and insure the staging process is complete. The cost of this consultation varies depending on the square footage of the house and/or the number of rooms to be staged. The cost of a consultation usually is between $250 and $500.

Full Service Staging: In full service staging I will meet with you at your home and create a detailed list of items that need to be addressed to properly stage the house. Upon completing this list I will begin to stage the home on an agreed upon date. Staging can take from one to three days depending on the size of the house, number of rooms and the items that need to be addressed. The cost of full staging begins around $900.

Vacant house staging: A vacant house is a seller's worst nightmare. Many buyers can not truly see the layout of the house without furniture and makes the owner look desperate to sell. Staging a vacant house requires the owner to rent or provide furniture for the duration of the sale. This can easily be accomplished through furniture rental companies which have partnered with ASP's to help provide services to our customers. The cost of rental furniture is the responsibility of the owner, but choosing the furniture would be done with my assistance. The home owner would then choose either staging consultation or full staging services.

Follow Up Visits:
Staging helps houses sell faster. However, even the most beautifully presented house may be on the market for a number of weeks or months in today's marketplace. To insure the house maintains a staged appearance, follow up visits are often arranged. Each follow up visit is $50 regardless of the service provided and may occur weekly or bi-weekly depending on the circumstances. All staging fees are due when services are rendered. Credit cards accepted and financing can be arranged through MBNA.
