HOME STAGINGSERVICES

Staging is an amazing way to sell your house fast!

Why stage a home? Well because it gives the buyer a sense of how they can make it their own. It takes away a lot of uncertainties, such as their furniture being able to fit in the space, placement of the furniture, rugs, decor etc. Buyers are visual and setting the tone with a nice combination of furniture and accessories puts it all in perspective. Did you know that staging appeals to over 80% of buyers searching for a new home? This proves why offers in some cases come in at anywhere from six to ten percent more than the asking price. Give it a try. You won't regret it!


VACANT STAGING 

With a blank canvas the possibilities are endless. There is lot of flexibility to create a design that is customized to your home. Whether you decide on full or partial staging, S. Smith Designs will be sure to display a combination of contemporary styles and colors creating an inviting experience that flows from room to room.


OCCUPIED STAGING 

Staging an occupied home is a little different in that the current owner still lives in the space therefore everything is personalized to their liking. The goal in this process will be to use some of the existing furniture and decor mixed with new pieces to create an attractive layout buyers would love. This process will require the existing owner to consider storage for items not being used to avoid clutter. Remember we want the buyer to feel like it's their home, not yours.


REDESIGN

This service is for the home owner who has no clue what to do with their home, but wants a new look and feel. It's also a great time to de-clutter and get rid of items you no longer use or need. You'll be surprised at how much of your existing pieces can be used in combination with new pieces to create an entirely new home. This process is fun because you get to explore new ideas that will make you fall in love with your home all over again.


THE PROCESS

S. Smith Designs guarantees a professional, individualized, expert and affordable service to every homeowner, Real Estate Agent and investor. We'll work closely with you to make sure you walk away from this experience feeling well looked after.


THE CONSULTATION

The consultation is the most important part of the process because this is where we meet to assess the home and discuss your needs. At this time we'll take measurements, photos and for an occupied home have a look at existing pieces that can be used in the design. Based on the information gathered and the length of time service is required a cost estimate will be prepared.


INSTALLATION

The day of install is pretty much easy going because it is already decided where everything will go and how it will all happen. In some instances there may be changes if something looks better elsewhere or we are simply adding or subtracting pieces. Otherwise it's pretty simple. The process can take up to 48 hours and when completed the clock starts then.
