Home Staging Evaluations
When you hire me to complete a home staging evaluation for you, it includes many items. I will tour your property, and in a written report, give you my recommendations on cleaning, decluttering, and depersonalizing your home. I will also make note of any repairs that should be made prior to listing your home and provide you with a list of contractors that would be happy to help us with this project. If you prefer, I can coordinate all the repairs for you or, for the do-it-yourselfers, you can complete the list yourself. I will also recommend any areas that would benefit from a resale redesign plan.
Home Staging and Redesign Solution
This package of services includes everything listed in Home Staging Evaluations in addition to my Resale Redesign plan. I will take measurements, create floor plans, choose a neutral, welcoming color scheme and finally, implement the placement of furniture and accessories in your home to accent its architectural features. This will help potential buyers visualize their own furniture and accessories in your home, making for a quicker sale. This package requires that you agree to redesign at least 3 rooms in your home. If you choose this option, your Home Staging Evaluation will be FREE and you will be charged $75 an hour for work completed.
Interior Redesign begins with me coming into your home and discussing what you would like done to your space. This service is always free of charge. If you decide to proceed with the evaluation, I will proceed to take pictures and measurements of the room to be redesigned. I will then return to my office and create floor plans, and choose a color scheme. If you choose to purchase new furniture, we can even shop together! I will then meet with you again to review the redesign plans and, if you decide to hire me, we will proceed with the implementation of the redesign plan.
If you are happy with the furniture and accessories that you already own and would just like help in picking out the perfect wall color to paint, DESIGN SOLUTIONS by Laura will even help with you choose your colors!
Vacant Home Staging Evaluation
The evaluation stage of a vacant home is fairly easy to complete. There is no furniture to move around and all decluttering and depersonalization has already been done by the property owner. This service still includes curb appeal, choosing a neutral color scheme and noting any repairs that should be done prior to showing the house to potential buyers.
Vacant Home Redesign
After the evaluation of your vacant property, it is time to make it look like a home. This service may require painters or contractors and almost always requires furniture rental. I will help coordinate the hiring of contractors needed to complete the plan. I will also help with furnitre rentals and hiring movers to load and unload the house. I will deliver a report to you stating all anticipated costs of staging this property. Costs will vary depending on the size of the property. My hourly rate remains the same, $75/hour.
