Sophisticated Stagers are design professionals who assist a homeowner or realtor in identifying a home’s strengths and weaknesses. We will evaluate your home with an objective eye and determine what you might need to move, change, repair or replace. Staging can range from simply removing clutter and rearranging furniture to painting and redecorating. We will guide you in how to make simple, moderate or significant improvements and changes to your home...what to eliminate, what to keep and what to add. We will inform you of definite things to do or not to do when putting your house on the market. It is important to make that first impression.
Lynn Ierardi, a certified home stager and member of International Design and Decorating Professionals (IDDP) and Michael Ierardi, a cabinetmaker and home improvement specialist bring together a unique blend of talent and vision to Sophisticated Stagers. Our years of combined experience enables us to offer our clients professional design, decorating and home staging services. We are located in New York, on Long Island and serve clients in both Suffolk and Nassau counties.
Staging sets the scene throughout the house to create immediate buyer interest in your property. It is important to create a visual image for prospective buyers that will help them see themselves as the new owners of your home.
Staged homes tend to sell much faster and often for substantially higher prices than comparable homes that have not been similarly prepared for sale. In today's market it is now more important than ever that your home has a clear advantage over those in your area.
How we can help you.
Many clients simply want a consultation which comprises a complete evaluation outside and inside of things they can do that will improve their ability to sell their house. This would include a room by room evaluation and a verbal as well as a written report of suggestions. This may include suggestions on cleanup, de-cluttering, painting, removal and rearrangement of furniture, garden work, etc. The client is then free to decide how much they are willing to do or spend to make these improvements on their own.
Some clients may feel they need additional assistance in preparing their homes for sale after the initial consultation. We can offer our services or names of other professionals who will help them get their homes ready to be put on the market.
Whatever category you may fall into we are here to assist you in optimizing your home's potential. In many cases the money you invest now to improve your home and property is often far less than the amount of money that you will have to forfeit in a price reduction.
