There are three phases to the home staging or redesign process to completely maximize the value of the home. Evansville Home Staging & ReDesign can do all three…Do one…or all three.  During our consultation with you we will plan out your options for you. By understanding the different phases, you’ll be able to better understand the “staging potential” or “redesign potential” of the home. We keep it simple and break up your processes, so that you don’t get bogged down. PHASE ONE - Using What The Client Has To Transform the SpaceThis is basically our time and expertise which is the most valuable thing a home seller can incorporate in preparing their home to sell.  Why?  Because it involves zero budget outside of a Staging Day or two, but creates big rewards in the resell based on our ability to creatively and objectively decorate the home sell.

 

PHASE TWO – Recommended Purchases As Investments In Staging ProcessWorking with the client’s budget, we will only make those recommended purchases that will MORE than pay for themselves in the speed and amount of sale.  We will work with the home seller or home owner (in redesign) and find those perfect, inexpensive accessories that will have a dramatic impact on each room of the home.

PHRASE THREE - Simple Yet Dramatic Cosmetic Updates and Changes!Some rooms just need paint, while others need updated lighting etc.  Depending on the client’s budget and timing, we will only suggest paint, electrical and other cosmetic improvements that will result in a higher return on investment.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Why do I need a Home Stager? Is probably the most frequently asked question.  Most homeowners are very attached and proud of their home.  Therefore have a hard time seeing it through buyer eyes.  Buyers are picking out every flaw and knocking that off their offer- if they even put one in.   A professional stager can help you let go emotionally and see the big picture of selling your home and netting a bigger profit.

Can I stage my home myself? Many realtors and homeowners try to stage their home themselves and most miss the mark.  Home Staging professionals are experienced in creating the right mood for the home to sell.  Home Staging professionals know where they can just fluff it up and when a more extensive approach is necessary.  Expertise Sells!

How much will it cost? All depends on the size and condition your home is in.  Also, whether it is vacant or you have furniture to work with.  To stage a home properly you will need current and neutral accessories, furniture appropriately scaled to the rooms, and a clean odorless home.  Clean and organized homes sell!

Why do I need staged pictures? If nothing else you need pictures of your home that are perfect.  The internet/ multiple listing sites are a very useful tool for buyers to preview a home before they see it in person.  It truly is your homes first impression.  If you have a room with no clear purpose and your home is cluttered it’s a turn off and at the very least it brings in a lower priced offer.  Staged pictures bring traffic to your home and higher priced offers to the table.

How long will it take? Most homes take about 4-8 hours to fully stage.  Homes need to be cleaned and organized before staging can take place to get the full impact and your moneys worth of staging.  You don’t want to pay for cleaning when you can do it for free. You can use my service for the de-clutter and organize, adding on additional time to accomplish this is going to vary by the size of the home and the amount of clutter.

  STAGING FAQS   What are the benefits of professionally staging my home?   In today’s competitive real estate market, professionally staging your home gives you an edge over the competition, selling faster (50% on average) and at a 6-10% higher price. Home staging is about creating an emotional connection with buyers. Because 90% of prospective buyers can’t visualize an unstaged home’s potential and picture it as their own, they move on. Each week a property sits on the market, buyers tend to make lower offers, eventually leading to a price reduction and costing YOU tens of thousands of dollars.   Why can’t I stage my own home?   Creating a professionally staged home is different from the way we live day-to-day in that less is more. Evansville Home Staging is professionally trained to employ creative techniques that highlight your home’s architectural features and showcase your home, not your personal decorating style. The buyer has to be able to visualize themselves living in your home. As an owner, you have an emotional connection to your furnishings, art and decorating style, thus making it nearly impossible to be objective about how to stage your home properly. (Even home stagers seek the advice of other stagers because of this phenomenon!)   What advantages of home staging will make for better marketing to increase agent interest and more foot traffic?   According to the National Association of Realtors, 85% of potential home buyers start their search online using Multiple Listing Service (MLS) before ever stepping out with a Realtors. If your Web pictures aren’t at their optimum best, real estate agents may pass your home by and you will see less foot traffic at open houses Evansville Home Staging not only stages your home to sell, we take professional, photos using  a camera that has the best resolution, color, lighting and clarity.   What do Realtors say about home staging?   Staging is a relatively new art and professional technique to successfully market and sell your home faster and for top dollar. Because of this, 85% of Realtors recommend that their clients professionally stage their home. According to The 2010 Home Sale Maximizer, staging will give you five times the return (586%) on your investment.   When is the best time to stage my home?   Ideally, you want to stage your home before you put it on the market, instantly creating the most interest on MLS, which translates into heavy foot traffic and a successful open house. However, if your home has sat on the market with no respectable offers, it’s time to stage and bring back buyers who previously past your home by, as well as create interest and excitement for new potential buyers.   "Home Staging is using limited funds, practical creativity and extraordinary expertise to professionally prepare a home to sell so that it becomes infinitely more sell-able"   Kitchen & Nook area after completed Vacant Staging.....see the difference   it is warmer and more inviting.....       Call me and lets arrange a time for a Walk thru Consultation and see what needs to be done!

I'm glad our Realtor recommended you to us." Jeannie F., Darmstadt, IN~      "With the market being in favor of the buyer these days, I knew I had to do everything possible to make my house marketable.  I called my Realtor to see who he suggested I call and he recommended Brenda at Evansville Home Staging & Re-Design. Brenda's knowledge and willingness to dive right in and make it happen on that first visit made it happen for me.  She helped me give the house the uplift it needed, by rearranging furniture and adding a few needed accessories she gave everything the right focus without the expense.  My house was on the market for 17 days when I had a contract, very near my asking price (I also had several full price offers), we were closed and I turned over the keys in less than 30 days.  Thank you Brenda,"  Carol G., Evansville, IN “Brenda came into my home office and in less than one hour created space and much needed change in my treatment/spa room. She didn't just talk about the changes, she got to work and made it happen immediately. She worked with my furniture, just suggested some updated accessories.She also hauled away the clutter for me which was an added bonus! In completion of the project she offered to shop for the some needed accessories which saves me valuable time and enhances the decor.  My space is now much more professional and I feel confident that my clients will feel more comfortable. I am still in awe and thrilled with the results. Thank you Brenda!!” Bonnie S., Evansville, IN    “Brenda Hughes worked with me on a home project for a client that was in real need of help in getting their home sold.

It sold within 2 weeks of the staging, after being on the market for almost a year. She absolutely transformed the look of the home from unattractive to warm and inviting.
