home staging tips

Home staging can help your home sell for thousands, even tens of thousands more than it would without staging.

Home staging can also help you sell much faster and avoid price reductions. So doesn’t it make financial sense for you to use home staging to your advantage?

I’ve been flipping houses, staging homes, and training new home stagers for over ten years and I have tons of great advice I’m excited to pass along to you so you can make the most money from your home sale.

Home staging consultation can boost your sale price. I know what buyers want to see and I know how to make any home scream “buy me!”

Here’s how our home staging consultation service works:

1. Send me an email to set up a time for your consultation.

2. We’ll do a thorough walk-through of your home and give you detailed steps for you to take to get your home ready to list. You’ll take notes (I hate paperwork) so you can get the most out of our visit. You’ll get all the easy-to-make changes and savvy staging tips that will make your home blow the competition away. Most recommendations will be free or low-cost, because we’ll be working with what you have as much as possible.

On a side note, I helped a couple recently (with our online home staging service) and their home sold for $21,000 over asking in four days.  I gave them all of my tips and advice and their agent was impressed on photo day! The couple was EXTREMELY happy. It was their first time selling a home and it went very, very well for them.

The fee for in-person home staging consultation in Portland is $225 and it will take about one to two hours for most homes. It’ll be well worth your time and money. I’ve been doing this for a long time (about 15 years as of this writing), I have a lot of great advice to give you, and I work fast! Think about the cost of your first price reduction — home staging can help you avoid being in that situation.

YES it is a seller’s market here in Portland (edit: now moving toward a more balanced market but still favoring sellers) and bidding wars have become a common occurrence recently (edit: not as common anymore but full-price and offers over asking are still happening regularly), but you can still benefit from home staging.  Home staging will make your home more desirable to more buyers, giving you a higher list price and even more interested buyers to make offers.

Our home staging consultation service also covers Lake Oswego, West Linn, Happy Valley, Clackamas, Gresham, Troutdale, and other parts of the Portland metro area, so please call or email us to inquire. (There may be an added travel fee of $25 depending on your location.)

REMEMBER, YOU CAN EASILY INCREASE YOUR SALE PRICE BY $5,000…$10,000…OR MORE.
