It’s often hard for a seller to see their home’s potential when they are living there day-to-day. We will work with you to help you get the most value for your home (or—prevent you from making a change that could have no return on your investment.)
A staged home will essentially bring out the good in a home. It will emphasize the space, functionality and features of a house so that prospective buyers can envision themselves in it. Staging adds to your home by making your home feel larger, brighter, cleaner, etc. We generally stage our homes using items you currently own and design to appeal to a broad range of buyers. Home staging can essentially erase the negatives in a home, or distract prospective buyers from any imperfections a home may have.
IBD offers decorating services which include selection of paint colors, window treatments, artwork, furniture and much more.
Just need a fresh look IBD redesigns a room using much of what you already own in new and creative ways, giving your home a fresh new look.
A great way to “get your feet wet” is to schedule a consultation to see what IBD can do for your home.
Clients are invoiced in different ways depending upon the project. If the project is a simple consult on your home we will invoice by the hour with a two-hour minimum.
If you are looking for complete design, redesign or staging help, a proposal is prepared after the initial meeting and work begins from there.
Other packages are also available, contact the team for more options and information.
A 90 Minute Home Staging Consultation includes a walk-through of your entire home (driveway to attic). You will receive verbal suggestions for updates you can make to increase flow, harmony and functionality of the spaces throughout the home. These design principles are important to creating warm, cozy spaces that encourage people to relax and and feel at home. The more comfortable people feel in a place, the more they want to stay!
After completing the items on a to-do list created post the 90 Minute Home Staging Consultation, we spend 1-2 hours preparing the home for the photography session by “tweaking” furniture, artwork and decor. This will help to ensure that the house is in picture perfect condition when the photography is completed.
This service is perfect to make a great first impression for the house that is just about to go on the market.
We start with the Home Staging Consultation (above) and deliver a Staging Action Plan to you which includes recommended purchases and cosmetic fixes free of charge (a $150 value).
Upon acceptance of the SAP, IBD will spend up to three full days (typically over a few weeks) transforming your home into a buyer’s dream using furnishings and accessories found in or around the property.** We will work on the main rooms of the home creating flow, light and space, clearing unnecessary personal items and give the space a neutral appeal for buyers.
Every home should go through our complete home transformation before being photographed prior to being listed. In addition, IBD will return within one week prior to the scheduled Open House for an inspection and provide tweaks and guidance (typically 1-2 hours)…free of charge!
** Packages do not include time and materials for added furnishings, artwork and accessories suggested in the Staging Action Plan. (For example: IBD may suggest painting rooms, adding new accessories or furnishings. A separate budget would be drafted and upon acceptance, IBD will take care of obtaining/ delivery and setup.)
