Consultations: Design or Staging
Choosing the right interior finishes or coloring can be daunting, and it can be a very expensive and frustrating mistake if the choices are wrong. A Design consultation may be the perfect option if you need a touch of help with making sure you are moving your home interiors in the right direction. A color consultation is our most popular request because it’s best to choose right, the first time!
During the consultation, we give expert advice regarding questions or concerns that you may have about your project, and we always consider how choices will affect your resale value in a positive or negative way.
We do charge for the consultation, but if you decide to hire us for a longer term, we would enter into a retainer agreement and will apply the initial consultation fee towards the retainer amount.
Are you concerned about “leaving money on the table” when selling? Are you worried that you may be investing too much or too little into your home and concerned about the return on that investment? Both extremes can be addressed with a staging consultation. Although we are not financial experts, we understand what buyers are looking for and what creates the added value!
A staging consultation begins with a thorough walk through of your home, then we give recommendations about what should be done to optimize profit within your personal budget. This may range from a guidance on color and/or carpet updates to furnishing edits and additions. We include recommendations pertaining curb appeal AND web appeal (how it will look online--so important!) We consider every room and how it is prepared for the market (from great rooms to closets) and give recommendations of what can be done to set your home at the TOP OF the LIST. Knowing exactly what buyers are looking for is the best way to sell your home for faster and for more money!
