HOME STAGING FAQ'S

What is professional home staging?

Home Staging is the preparation of a home to sell by a professional who specializes in this form of design and has been certified and trained in the art of home staging.  Many definitions you have seen no doubt stop after the word “sell” and that is part of the big misconception and devaluation of home staging. A professional home stager has the resources and can objectively view the home as a product and highlight its assets while downplaying its imperfections. The home seller cannot view their home objectively, while many successful Realtors do not have the time or trade resources to properly stage a home.

What is owner occupied home staging?

This is when the home seller will be remaining in the home while it is on the market.  Staging an occupied home entails using what the homeowner already has and supplementing with updated decor and accessories.  This is also my specialty!

Do you offer vacant staging services?

I do not offer vacant staging services at this time.

 

What is the process?

All staging services start with a pre-listing walk & talk consultation. This will provide the homeowner with all the information necessary to do the work themselves.  For homeowners who need assistance, additional services can be scheduled to ensure the house looks its absolute best for the photo shoot.  These services include:
1. Photo Ready Styling session (the most popular service)
2. Half-day power staging service
3. Full-day power staging service

How much does it cost?

Pre-listing walk & talk consultations start at $350 and last for up to 2.5 hours for homes less than 3,500 sf.  Homes larger than 3,500 sf start at $450.

Photo-Ready styling is $350 for 2 hours

Power Staging Half & Full Day packages are $650 and $975 respectively

Rental items vary by home depending upon what is needed.  On average, homes under 3,500 sf, rental fees are between $400-$500 per month.

Do you bring in furniture and accessories to stage with?

With owner-occupied homes, I will work with what the homeowner already has and supplement with staging decor & accessories for a rental fee. This includes small accessories, plants, lamps and artwork only.  I do not provide soft goods such as bedding, pillows & towels but will provide recommendations on where to purchase these items.  I can also shop for those items.

Furniture pieces are not offered but I am happy to recommend a trusted furniture rental company, if needed.

Do you offer other services?

Yes! I offer color consulting and redesign services.  See the services menu to be directed to the appropriate page

Are you insured?

Yes! Kelly Home Designs is fully insured.  Not all stagers take this extra step, but I always look out for the best interest of my clients.

No matter the overall market conditions in your client’s neighborhood, you want your listings sold quickly and with as little hassle for your sellers as possible. Successful real estate agents are adding another item to their to-do lists in marketing a property—professional home staging. They realize that an inviting, move-in-ready home isn’t just a wish list detail, but an integral part of their overall marketing plan.

Jodi from Kelly Home Designs is a rock star!

With her eye and attention to detail, my listing sold within 3 days with multiple offers and for well over asking price. She is smart, efficient, creative and responds to calls/e-mails/texts promptly. With her tiered offering of services, you can have her help with minor staging/ editing/ designing or allow her to fully take the reins for a complete make-over or redesign. No matter your needs, she will get it done and you will be happy!

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.

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.
