Stagers Who Stand Ready to Transform Properties

A_1

By Audra Slinkey, Home Staging Resource

A lot of people don’t realize just how much home stagers do for their clients. Certified professional home stagers are true artists and will go to great lengths to get that “right look,” as well as help seller’s maximize the return impact on the sale of their home.

Here are two, behind-the-scenes staging stories that show you how far your home stager will go to GET IT DONE RIGHT…

You may have seen this unique residence in your news stream a while back, but did you consider how it got staged? It is on an island just off the Connecticut coast and the residence spans the entire three-acre island.

There were five houses to be staged (a main house, guest house, tea house, game house, and pool house.) The real kicker is that the caretaker’s boat had weight restrictions and could not hold couches, beds, or larger pieces–so the stager had to be creative!

HSR Certified home stager Leia Ward of LTW Designs in Fairfield County is the brave home stager who took on this property, and using only accessories, staged it beautifully! Here is a photo of her loading up the boat with all her gorgeous furnishings.

Imagine how hard it must have been to crate all of those items over two docks, open sea, and yard space using just the wheel barrel you see here!

Leia and her team staged all day and into the evening but the outcome and sale of the home is what drives dedicated stagers like her.

A_4

Since staging outdoor spaces has become much more critical to buyers, Leia makes sure no stone is unturned using what the client had and adding many more accessories to update the look.

View photos of Leia and her team’s staging of the property.

My second story entails a home that most people had given up on…

A_5

Looking more like an Amityville Horror Movie, this home had been neglected and abused for years and unfortunately the inside was not much better…

A_6

When RESA Stager of the Year, HSR Grad Brad Fletcher of the Home Staging Pros in Orlando, Fla. got a hold of this property … everything changed!

A_7

The transformation is unbelievable, and it’s hard to envision this is the same house! Updated flooring, paint, fixtures, A LOT of clean up, and staging makes this a home that buyers will pay A LOT more for!

Professional home stagers make this kind of magic happen every day for their clients. They are tireless, they are dedicated, and they are worth every penny.

A_8

Buyers beware … not all home stagers are equal. Is Walmart equal to Restoration Hardware in quality and design? It’s not about getting the best price for your sellers; it’s about getting the best return on their investment. Brad and Leia are stagers who do just that.

Automation and Customization: Renter Wishes

DeVita_Suzanne_60x60

Apartment dwellers’ preferences are shifting…toward what owners want, new research shows.

According to the National Multifamily Housing Council (NMHC), an apartment industry organization, convenience, personalization and smart home technology are high on renters’ wish lists. In the NMHC’s 2018 Consumer Housing Insights Survey, 92 percent of respondents believe convenience and ease are important in a rental. Further necessitating the need are the 63 percent of respondents who say they are busy with a “hectic” life.

Homeowners have similar tastes—in fact, the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) found that two generations of homeowners are looking for walkability, and Coldwell Banker Real Estate research reveals 32 percent have incorporated smart technology, including smart locks and thermostats.

The ability to customize is also in-demand, according to the NMHC survey. Ninety-four percent believe personalization is significant, and 60 percent believe their home is indicative of who they are.

Seventy-eight percent, meanwhile, are after a rental that can be altered easily to meet their needs, whether in the future or the present. Tellingly, 40 percent expect to remote-work, highlighting interest in office space, or, at the very least, reliable cell reception and internet.
