Before & After Staging Photos
As every home is different and the circumstances around every sale is unique, so are the various requirements for getting it into the best marketable condition in order to effect the quickest sale for maximum return on your investment. Some may require very little to improve their saleability while others may need an overhaul. Some clients want to do much of the work themselves to minimize expenses, while others may want a turnkey experience or somewhere in-between.
I've done all kinds. I suggest starting off with a basic 1-2 hour Consultation and lets assess the situation. That may be all you need, but if not, we can establish the next step to get your home ready to sell and sell quickly. I can then provide an estimate and will apply your initial assessment fee to future work (if exceeds $300)- based on my recommendations and your specific needs and budget allotment.
