Services for Designing to Sell

Staging Consultation (verbal)    

$250 (Allow up to 2 hours)

Sitting Pretty Redesign does a walk-through of the entire property, inside and out, looking at everything from curb appeal to wall color and furniture placement. We then make recommendations as to what changes and/or updates need to be made in order to achieve the best market appeal. All suggestions keep in mind what will achieve the greatest impact and “bang for your buck.” We will sit down and discuss your goals and address any questions you may have. Homeowners are encouraged to take notes for future reference.

Home Staging Consultation (w/ detailed report)    

$350 ($250 + $100) (Allow up to 2 hours)

At the completion of a verbal consultation, we will re-tour the property taking digital photos and notes. A very detailed report will be produced, outlining specific room-by-room recommendations. This guide is great for do-it-yourselfers. It will be sent to you within 48 hours of the consultation. If hands-on-staging is desired, we will establish a budget and timeframe and include a proposal that estimates time & charges, along with contracts, to be signed and returned before staging is scheduled.

FOR REALTORS: The Home Staging Consultation with Detailed Report is a great option for Realtors, offering clients a valuable staging resource included with their listing. Most homes need more attention than a little de-cluttering and cleaning to get market-ready. Let Sitting Pretty Redesign take on the tough conversation with your clients regarding the contents and condition of their home. Home Staging is proven to bring in higher offers, more quickly (see National Association of REALTORS 2015 Profile of Home Staging); therefore, this small investment upfront will be a profitable one for agents and clients alike!

Occupied Property Staging 

(Estimated fee based on 2000 square foot home. Additional fee may apply.)

Half Day $500 (allow up to 4 hours) 

Full Day $1000 (allow up to 8 hours)

*An in-home consultation is required to determine the staging needs of the home. Consultation price is $250,  a portion ($100) to be refunded upon staging package purchase. Signed Agreement required, and 50% of service fees are payable prior to the provision of services. 

Based on the initial consultation, a Full or Half Day of staging will be recommended. Using the furniture and accessories in your home, we will transform your interior space to make it appeal to the largest number of potential buyers.

Sitting Pretty Redesign will stage your home using your existing furniture and décor, wherever possible. Space planning techniques will be used to optimize traffic flow and create a feeling of spaciousness. Buying a home is an emotional process, and proper staging appeals to those emotions. Using visual interests, our staging talent will trigger buyers to see the “wow” factor in your space and feel like this could be “home.”

We may recommend editing or storing certain items or adding some carefully chosen furniture and/or accessories. Recommended additional items may be purchased by you, or we offer a shopping service at $75/hour. Items purchased can be a great inventory to kick start your stylish new home, or you may return the items for refund upon sale closing/de-stage.

Staging will be done to appeal to today’s discerning buyers in a classic, contemporary style appropriate to your home’s décor and price point. Upon completion, we will take photographs for your use in marketing on the MLS.

Prior to scheduling your Full or Half Day of Staging, we recommend that you complete the following:

  • Pack away all unnecessary items, such as: clothing, dishes, books, video games, magazines, fridge magnets, bills, and any additional clutter
  • Have the home professionally cleaned, inside and out
  • Wash all windows, indoors and out
  • Paint all interior walls a neutral color
  • Remove all artwork from walls, but leave it out for possible re-hanging
  • Hire a landscaping company to cut, trim and prune the yard. Re-mulch all flower beds.

Vacant Property Staging 

*Our vacant home staging services begin with an initial consultation, required to determine the staging needs of the home. The price of this consultation is $100 and is applied toward the purchase of a staging package.

The size of the home and specific market analysis affects the style and volume selected for rental furnishings. Due to these factors, vacant staging cost is often based on the asking price and size of the home. (Allow for 8 hours minimum)

Signed Agreement required, and 50% of service fees are payable prior to the provision of services. 

Vacant homes are a tough sell! They come across as cold and uninviting, and leave buyers confused as to proper function and layout. Did you know that rooms actually appear smaller when vacant? Sitting Pretty Redesign can help make your vacant home appear larger and more inviting. We work with investors and “flippers,” as well as individual homeowners, who know that in any economy a “staged” home will bring a larger return on their investment than one left vacant and having multiple price reductions. Our taste for unique items take it up a notch from the standard rental fare. Furniture/accessories/window treatments/linens, etc. – all can be included in your unique staging package. We will meet with you at the property to discuss your particular needs.
