A Home Staging Consult is the FIRST STEP to Getting Your New Hampshire House Sold

Many New Hampshire sellers don't really understand the role a Professional Home Stager plays in the process of real estate marketing.  With so many home staging shows on TV portraying staging as a group of people swooping down on a house and transforming it with all new furnishings in a day, it's no wonder sellers are confused.

Home Staging takes many forms, and Home Stagers provide various services.  One thing that remains consistent is they all begin with a consult of some kind.  The consult may be to provide advice for the seller to make improvements or it may be to provide an estimate for the stager to make a transformation.

A Home Staging Consult is STEP ONE.  It provides sellers with a specific and strategic game plan to prepare and present their house for sale.

It will give you much more time to get your house in show condition.  Realtors are required to put the house on MLS almost immediately upon listing, leaving little time for the necessary improvements to be made.  It's best not to list until your house is 100% ready for market.

Meet with the Stager before the painter...

The stager will help you choose the right colors.  I've done many consults where I've suggested a paint color be changed only to find out the room had just been painted. 

Meet with the Stager before the landscaper or the contractor...

The stager will prioritize needed improvements and tell you which projects will give you the best return on your investment.  A stager can show you ways to handle some issues without major construction, saving you time and money.

Meet with the Stager before moving your stuff to storage...

This will give the stager more to work with when styling the house. You would be surprised at what can be done with existing furnishings and accessories.  It's best to let the stager decide what stays and what goes.

A Home Staging Consult is the FIRST appointment you should make when preparing to sell your house.

Hi -

You said -

The stager will help you choose the right colors.  I've done many consults where I've suggested a paint color be changed only to find out the room had just been painted.

Save the double work - right?
Have a happy day -
