Once all of the paperwork is complete, we’ll walk through your home room by room with you to create a comprehensive list of items that need to be decluttered, furniture that needs to be moved or put in storage, and together we’ll determine whether we need to bring in a professional stager to stage either certain rooms or the entire property.  Unless the property is vacant, we usually don’t need a stager.  Instead, we often bring artwork and small pieces of furniture from our own homes for free to augment the furniture you already have in your home. If your home is vacant and we do need a stager, we’ll arrange for several companies to provide us with quotes. Once we’ve picked a stager, you would pay the staging company directly for their services.  Here are some great before and after photos highlighting why staging a vacant home is so important.

Here is our complete staging/decluttering checklist. Remember, we’ll create a personalized list just for your home.  Once the staging/decluttering is done, let us know so we can schedule an appointment with our photographer to take professional photos of your home.
