LET'S TAKE THE OVERWHELM OUT OF YOUR MOVE

When selling your home, it is ESSENTIAL to make a GOOD FIRST IMPRESSION starting with a strong online presence.

Kelly Home Designs staging services are specifically designed for homeowners who will remain living in the home during the selling process. We specialize in using what you already own to transform your home into what a buyer is looking for.  


With 9 out of 10 buyers starting their searches online, it is more important than ever to consult with a professional home stager before listing.

Having your home professionally staged will set you apart from your competition and the stunning MLS photos will make buyers fall in love with your home before they even step foot inside!

WALK & TALK CONSULTATION

starting at $350 

ALL STAGING SERVICES START WITH OUR PRE-LISTING CONSULTATION 


In this thorough home walk through, we will be using a detailed Staging Report with checklists to write down everything that needs to be done to get the home the quickest sale at the best price possible.  For the DIYer this is all you will need to get "Staged to Sell" ready.  For those of you who don't want the burden of taking notes, we can do it for you and provide a detailed report specific to your home!

first impressions for home buyers

WHAT TO EXPECT:

We'll start with a discovery call to get some basic information on your home and neighborhood which allows us to make the most out of our consultation time together.

THE CONSULTATION (up to 2.5 hrs): 

Using a customized Staging Report & Checklist, the homeowner will take detailed notes as we follow an 8-step process in each room.   If we are taking the notes for you and sending a detailed report, there is an additional fee of $150.  We  will walk through the entire home, from curb to closets, discussing everything you'll need to know to get stage ready, including:

What should be packed, stored or purged now

Depersonalizing the home 

* Removing personal items and excess furnishings

Optimal furniture placement

Paint color recommendations that appeal to buyers

* A suggested shopping list of accessories that will instantly update the home

* Cosmetic updates that will have the biggest ROI

* Curb appeal

* And it should go without saying, but a DEEP CLEANING of everything from windows & carpets to inside the fridge

We were immediately impressed by her knowledge and experience

We were so fortunate that our realtors recommended a consultation with Jodi to give us suggestions on staging our home. We were immediately impressed by her knowledge and experience that we hired Jodi on the spot. She gave us amazing advice on preparing our home (our homework) and used many of her decorative items in our home for the first weekend of showings. Prospective buyers were so impressed with our home that we had 2 offers by Monday and closed within weeks! We believe Jodi was a huge reason our home sold so quickly and would highly recommend her to all.

Working with Jodi enhanced the sale price of our home.

She is both very organized, detailed & a pleasure to work with. Thank you Jodi for all of your help!

We were completely blown away by her recommendations!

We took notes in the Home Staging Report and Checklists packet that Jodi provided. She gave us incredibly useful pointers and suggestions, reminding us that it wasn’t necessary to go out and buy new things - we could simply make use of, repurpose and move around items we already had in our home. We ended up following ALL of her recommendations! Our house truly sparkles and is a home we are now completely proud to showcase! It’s so beautiful we wish we weren’t selling!

Jodi was instrumental in helping me prepare my home for sale

As a result of her advice, I was able to get myself organized, understand the process, and best of all, my home sold within 3 days of being on the market, at 30K over ask! She was precise, responsive, and having her come to my home on photo day made things much easier.  I would recommend her services without reservation.
