Think about a lovely model home, or a gorgeous room
display at a furniture store, or a friend’s home that
fills you with admiration. They beckon you, and your
reaction is: “I’d love to live here.”
Staging is the process of eliciting those same feelings
from a prospective home buyer. It is a cost-effective
way to market your property. It highlights your home’s
strengths, while downplaying its weaknesses. It creates
a greater sense of space, balance, and comfort. It
provides “emotional cues” that communicate to the buyers
the many ways they could be happy living there. Lastly,
it brings the property up-to-date in order to compete
successfully in today’s real estate market.
Staging is accomplished in many ways. Examples are:
de-cluttering, rearranging furniture and accessories,
depersonalizing the home to appeal to the broadest
possible market, updating fixtures, painting, or adding
and subtracting to the contents of the home. In the
case of a vacant house, it includes partially or
completely staging the property so that buyers can
better visualize their future home.
INTERIOR MOTIFS can properly stage your
home by making your home more appealing to a wide range of potential
buyers, thus resulting in a quicker sale and allowing the sale price to exceed the homeowners’
Consultation and Proposal
First we will discuss your goals and expectations. There will be a detailed walk-through of your home using “buyer’s eyes” in order to create an eight-step Action Plan which will show you how to receive the maximum return on investment for your home improvement dollars. During the walk-through our consultant will take detailed notes and photos of each room. We will give you a quick demonstration of the difference home staging makes by transforming a room of your home and end with a proposal based upon the amount of work needed to gain a quick sale for your home.
It is important when staging, to show
prospective buyers where to place furniture and how to utilize the
rooms in a house. By doing this, we create a MARKETING ADVANTAGE for
anyone selling their home.
"Top Ten" Priority Report
The “Top Ten” Priority Report is for homes that are well on their way to being staged and just need a little extra direction. This customized report focuses on the ten most important things the seller should do right away to increase the value of their home and obtain a faster sale.
Half Day of Home Staging
This service is for those homes that just need a little extra attention and expertise or are less than 2000 square feet. We will be working from the eight-step Action Plan that was created in the consultation, to make dramatic transformations to the main areas of the home. We will bring in accessories in order to complete the look of each room, take great photos for your agents marketing efforts, and give you a visual of what to purchase.
Full Day of Home Staging
This service is for those homes that need a little more attention and expertise or are over 2000 square feet. We spend a full day making dramatic transformations to your home. You won’t believe the difference a day can make! You’ll walk away with a show-ready home, photos for your agents marketing efforts, and visuals of purchases you can make to complete the look.
THE HOME STAGING PROCESS
At INTERIOR MOTIFS
we believe that successful staging is the art of using marketing and
decorating techniques to create an environment that buyers can aspire
to and say "I want this house, I can live like this." At INTERIOR MOTIFS,
we use the art of positioning to create several emotional connection
points throughout the home so that when a buyer steps into the house
they "Feel Home." We want them to think, "This is it. This is the one."
First Impressions: We will walk through each room where we take notes of what appeals to us and gives us that feeling of home.
Eliminating Clutter: This is where the packing starts. Packing away a good percentage of what is in the room will create a sense of more space.
Emphasizing the positive while downplaying the negative: We
will find the focal point and emphasize what we love about the room so
that the negative aspects of the room are not the main focus.
Lighten Up: Lighting
and color can change the entire feel of a room. We will make each room
into a bright, warm and inviting space that buyers can respond to.
Home buyers appeal:
For a buyer to “feel home,” they need to not be reminded of this being
your home. We’ll depersonalize the space while retaining a sense of
Odor elimination, cleaning and repairs: The
“dirty work” is often overlooked because you’ve lived in the home for
years. Let’s address these repairs by doing them ourselves.
Modernizing: You may need
to update your style and build simple accessories out of what you
already have. In some cases, we’ll recommend purchases as valuable
investments in the staging process.
Emotional connection points:
We'll create that “WOW” factor by showing you how to build emotional
connection points. This strategy will make the buyer subconsciously
desire to live and feel at home.
