What if my house is already on the market and/or empty? We specialize in staging homes where families are still living (occupied staging). Yes, you can sell your home even though you have kids, pets and you cook dinner there. But if you’ve already moved out, or worse yet, you’ve already been showing your house vacant, chances are you’ve been turning away buyers. We can furnish your vacant home with high quality furniture and accessories, lighting and trendy artwork, all of which your buyer will love. In fact, we’ve frequently helped the seller to close the deal by selling the furnishings used to stage the home. And since we own all our own inventory, you are dealing directly with us for a full staging solution.
Should I wait to stage? The staging process can take somewhere between 1 day and 1 year to complete, and we can accommodate your timeline, whatever it is. The question is how much work do you want to do, and are you trying to sell before a deadline? We can help! We do all the heavy lifting, from decluttering to staging. We also can provide movers, handyman services, and other resources as needed. Our best advice is to stage as soon as you know you want to move. Don’t try to time the market. In fact, we recently staged a home that, after sitting vacant on the market for 6 months, we staged and sold in under 30 days…during the month of December!
