How many of you enjoy watching Chip and Joanna Gaines on HGTV’s “Fixer Upper”? I think we all can agree that the “Before and After” photos are incredible! How many of us have heard the term “shiplap” before Joanna Gaines? I didn’t. Now, everyone wants a shiplap wall!
Why do we love these types of shows? Interior decorating can change the look, feel, and energy of the home. If HGTV can produce these types of shows on a nightly basis, then imagine a buyer’s expectations when they look at your home! The pressure is on for all Sellers to have that perfectly decorated home.
Wow! Can it be done? What if you are on a tight budget? The simple answer is, ”YES”!
We currently offer three services:
Basic – included in the listing is a complete walkthrough of your home, identifying immediate solutions in getting your home prepared to sell.
Redesign – After your home has been decluttered and cleaned, we will go through each room and make recommendations on rearranging rooms to create a balanced space, as well as creating an illusion of more space. Often, certain rooms of the home may need to be repainted in a neutral tone. Our design team can help to coordinate paint color schemes to refresh rooms. (Professional painting fees are additional).
Soft Staging – Sometimes, accessories are needed to make a room “POP”. It can be a distinctive piece of furniture or as simple as creating a spa like space in the master bath with luxury towels and candles. This will be based upon cost of materials + designer fees at $50/hr.
Check out this Home Seller’s Checklist for more information on preparing your home for buyers.
