2-Hour Speed Stage (Touch-Up)

Are you in a hurry to get your property sold?

You are champing at the bit to put your home on the market, but you know it’s just not ready. Yet, you want the process to go fast. Oh, yeah, and you want it to look perfect online and fetch the most money possible.

First, let me say, I know how it is.

Getting a home ready for sale can take as long as a year, and you don’t have that long. You are motivated, and you want it done yesterday. You have a life.

And you are realistic enough to know that most home buyers today want their new home to be move-in ready.

Introducing: The 2-Hour Speed Stage (AKA “Touch-Up”)

You won’t have to lift a finger if you don’t want to—we come in, assess the situation, and get a move-on (pun intended!)

What You’ll Get

  • A team of 2 or more stagers to come in to your home, move your furniture and accessories around, and remove a few things to make the house show beautifully

  • A “How to Prepare for Us” guide, so we’ll know where you want us to store unneeded items

  • Tips and hacks on how to live in your newly staged property, even with kids and pets

  • A 4 oz. Odor Neutralizing Spray, for those times that Uncle Eddie comes over for your fish fry, and decides to light up his favorite stogy. Perfect to spray before showings and open houses

  • Confidence to get started right away, so you have direction

  • My private resource list of tradesmen I love and have used for getting other homes sold fast, so you can get help if needed

The Benefits to You

  • You won’t need to move furniture, hang pictures, or rearrange any accessories

  • You’ll know what you can pre-pack

  • No wasted time doing meaningless tasks

  • Peace of mind knowing you are organized and ready

  • A home that is ready for real estate pictures in just 2 hours

  • You will have my list of trusted resources (painter, handy man, house cleaner, etc.) so you don’t have to waste time finding someone who is trustworthy and reliable

  • You’ll be able to “live” in your house and be ready for a showing on a moment’s notice

The Process is Simple

  1. After you have scheduled your 20-minute discovery call, I will phone you at the appointed time to find out more about your property. And you will get to know me, too.

  2. We schedule a visit to the home, and I sit with you for a few more minutes.

  3. We send you off for a couple of hours so we can work our magic.

  4. Then the stagers start moving things. We start at the front door entryway, the living room, dining room, kitchen, and master bedroom, using your things. I use my experience as a professional home stager and as a real estate agent to guide the process.

  5. You return home to your staged home! Be prepared—it might look really different, but it will look great in photos!

  6. You’ll also receive showing instructions, as well as how to live in your “staged” property so you can still be comfortable and ready at a moment’s notice for showings.

  7. We say goodbye, and you will have my email address in case you have a question you forgot to ask, or need my opinion on something.

  8. You have your real estate agent send over the photographer.

  9. You list your property.

  10. You prepare yourself mentally to move into your new dream home, because you should be getting showings and offers.

Why Would you Wanna Work with Me?

I am a master home stager with 9 years in the business, and with a background in selling real estate.

Who Is This Service For?

  • A home seller whose home, furniture and accessories are on trend and in good condition

  • The Real Estate Agent who wants to add value to their clients, as well as receive a faster and higher commission check (because of a faster sale)

  • A home seller who cannot physically move the furniture, hang pictures, or rearrange accessories

  • The motivated home seller, who maybe has already purchased their dream home

  • Families who need to sell an estate quickly and for the most money possible

  • Anyone who needs to sell their property fast and maximize their equity (divorce, death, etc.)

Who Is This Service NOT For?

  • Not for the home that needs updates or is vacant

  • Someone who believes their home will sell “as-is”

  • Someone who is unmotivated to sell their property quickly

  • Someone who is unmotivated to get the most $$$ for their house

  • Someone who thinks their home is already perfect because s/he spent a fortune on custom interior decoration

  • Someone who just wants to “wait and see” what offers they get if they put their property on the market

  • Someone who is not ready to leave their home

  • A hoarder (they will need more professional help than we can offer)

Ready to Schedule Your 2 Hour Speed Staging?

Great, we are happy to help. To get started, contact me with the best phone number to reach you, and I can get you on my calendar. I can take your fee over the phone to reserve your spot. I am usually booked out 2 weeks in advance, so if you have a specific date in mind for putting your property on the market, you will need to contact me sooner rather than later.

FAQ’s

How much does it cost? My fee is $397 for this service.

That seems like a lot. Can you give me a reduced rate if I have a small house? No, we complete the process in 2 hours’ time, and there will be at least 2 people to do the work. If we have time left, we will work on other areas of your home.

Can my Realtor come, too? We work best when no one else is around, as it allows our creative juices to flow. If your real estate agent has input, please have them email us beforehand.

I’m a Real Estate Agent. Who pays for this? Typically, any Agent I’ve worked with pays for the service. It’s their way of standing out from competing sales agents, and is a value-add for their clients. If you want to share the cost with your home seller, that is also an option.

Are you going to judge my decor? No, our goal is to maximize what you have, and go from there. Because we have determined that your furniture and accessories will work, we use them to their best advantage. We guarantee that your property will have an improved position in the real estate market.

What if I don’t like your suggestions and recommendations? Remember, the changes we suggest are only temporary. After the property gets a solid offer and gets bank approval, you can exhale and live more relaxed!

I live in Niagara County. Do you come to my neck of the woods? We realize that there are few staging professionals in our area, so we also serve Niagara and counties adjacent to Erie County. There is an additional $50 travel fee.

Can I pay you when you get here, after the service? We get paid upfront, as this is how we reserve your appointment.

I have an open house next week. Can you come tomorrow? Actually, no, we usually book at least 2 weeks out. Please take this into consideration when planning the date for your open house. You will need a cushion of time to get your home ready for its big reveal.

I have a dog and cats. Is that a problem? We love animals, too! But for this service, we need free reign of the property. Pets would distract us, and could potentially interfere with the result…

I work during the day. Can you come in the evening or on a weekend? No, we work Monday to Friday, 10 AM to 6 PM. I am married to a wonderful fellow, and my evenings and weekends are for our time together.

I don’t think my furniture has what it takes to be good enough for photos or staging. If you are uncertain, just send us a few photos. We’ll discuss this concern during the discovery call.
