Home Staging by L.B. Schmidt Creative Services

HOME STAGING SERVICES

"...the way you live in your home and the way you market and sell your house are two different things."

PRE-LISTING CONSULTATION

We focus on prompt, dramatic and affordable property transformations, starting with a consultation to assess your property inside and out. We leave you with a comprehensive written report of recommendations and suggestions. With this plan, you may choose to do the work yourself, or have us back to help complete the work. We will discuss all the options available.

STYLING AND PRESENTATION OF OCCUPIED PROPERTIES

We can execute and offer hands on services - as much or as little as you are comfortable having us do! We create designer looks on strict budgets and timelines. With our expertise, broad resources and proven experience in staging homes for sale, we can recommend the right people, skills and materials to meet any need. Combining expert visual presentation with a thorough understanding of current design and decorating trends we create inviting spaces with wide appeal.

STYLING AND PRESENTATION OF VACANT PROPERTIES

Most potential buyers have difficulty with spatial planning; they only know what they see and not the way it can be. This leaves vacant properties with a serious drawback compared with those that are staged. By staging key areas and creating vignettes, highlighting the selling features and focal points with carefully arranged furniture and accessories, each room comes to life and looks move-in ready allowing potential buyers to imagine how their belongings will fit in the spaces.

COLOUR CONSULTATIONS

Colour is one of the most important elements that can infuence how we feel both physically and emotionally. Approximately 60% of a buyer's first impression can be based on colour choice alone. A carefully selected colour palette can transform a drab & lifeless room into one that is both exciting & memorable. With the right colour selection you can communicate emotionally and give a welcoming message to prospective buyers.

SOURCING AND SHOPPING SERVICES

Need some expert shopping advice and assistance to prepare your property? Looking for the perfect accessories and don't know where to get it or have time to shop for it? We can take care of it all for you. We select items that are individually tailored to your requirements and taste, all within your budget guidelines.

WHAT A HOME STAGING CONSULTATION WILL ADDRESS

DE-CLUTTERING, PACKING, ORGANIZING

This process will allow potential buyers to see the focal points and selling features of your house, not your belongings, focusing on space.

DE-PERSONALIZING

After your home is de-personalized, potential buyers will be able to visualize their personal belongings in each room. They won’t be distracted by your favourite items (collections, family pictures, etc.). They will be able to make a personal and emotional connection.

FURNITURE AND ACCESSORY PLACEMENT

This will address the creation of focal points, balance, space and flow throughout the property.

INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR COLOUR SCHEMES

Paint is the least expensive yet leading-impact change that you can make. Over 60 percent of potential buyers will pay more for a property if they can move into a fresh, neutral scheme that works with their decor.

REPAIRS AND UPDATES

This involves reviewing what needs attention and ensuring that your house is in the best selling condition possible, as well as eliminating any liabilities that potential buyers may cite to chip away at the asking price with.

LIGHTING

Strategic deployment of general, task and accent lighting will create the ambience that your house needs to display its full potential.

ODOURS

“If you can smell it, you can’t sell it.”

CURB APPEAL

Decisions are made in seconds. A well-maintained exterior is the first impression that potential buyers will form of your property as they arrive.

PREPARING FOR AN OPEN HOUSE OR SHOWINGS

The “showcasing” process leaves your property looking its best for marketing materials and photographs. Your home will make a great impression on every potential buyer who walks through the door. It’s all in the details.

ACTION PLAN AND TIME LINES

This involves a review of the options and resources available to you, so that your property will be ready for the selling market on the listing date. It includes prioritizing the recommendations into a plan of action.
