83% Of Buyers Find It Easier To "Visualize The Property As Their Future Home" When It's Staged.
Sellers have been "fixing up" their homes to sell for decades, and for good reason. HGTV and home improvement shows have forever changed the way buyers view a home. They now have a certain expectation and are willing to pay quite a bit more for a home that is "model home" looking, because they can easily see themselves living there.
THE TOP 10 REASONS TO STAGE YOUR HOME
HOME STAGING FAQ'S
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.
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!
I do not offer vacant staging services at this time.
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
Pre-listing walk & talk consultations start at $350 and last for up to 2 hours for homes up to 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, rental fees for homes under 3,500 sf. are between $400-$500 per month.
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.

Jodi has a great eye and doesn't stop until she gets everything perfect. She pulled together staging of my house in two days and did a phenomenal job!

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 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!
