"Do-it-Yourself Staging"
This package appeals to those homeowners who feel they have the desire and willingness to stage their own homes- they just don't know what to do! This package includes a 1½ -3 hour visit from a certified ASPTM Home Stager, where your home is assessed from top to bottom- inside and out. Notes and photos are taken and within a week, an extensive plan is delivered to you detailing all the essential steps necessary to prepare the home for sale. This report includes comprehensive instructions and detailed photos and will be specific enough to name recommended paint colors and furniture placement.  While this package is called "Do-it-Yourself Staging" you are no means on your own- a stager will visit your home once you have finished executing the plan for a complimentary quick sweep to add some finishing touches and to make sure your house is in tip-top shape before we certify it as staged! At any point, if you feel that you are in over your head- we can be called in to come and finish the steps you haven't completed for an additional fee. There is a one-time flat fee for this package based on the size and specifications of your home.

"A-La-Carte Staging"  This package appeals to those homeowners who don't have the time to do the work and would rather have the staging services completed for them. We can stage as much or as little as you would like or your budget will allow. This package includes an initial visit from a certified ASPTM Home Stager where a quick walk through is conducted. Within a few days, a bid for services is delivered outlining the projects we feel need to be completed before bringing the house to market and the fees for each project. These projects include packing, de-cluttering, organizing, furniture arrangement, final staging and accessory rental. Once you select which projects you would like for us to complete, Homestyling101 will return to your home to complete the staging over a 1-2 day period. Fees vary based on size and scope of project.


"Fill Your Space Vacant Staging" There is no question that staged homes sell faster than vacant homes. Homebuyers just can't envision how great a home can look with furniture and accessories. Buyers want to buy warm, inviting spaces and empty rooms will only leave the buyer with a cold feeling. Contrary to popular belief, empty rooms do not feel bigger than furnished rooms- when staged properly, the furniture offers perspective of how furniture will fill the space. We can work with you to determine how to stage your property best- utilizing both our inventory of small furniture and accessories and acting as a liaison with furniture rental companies to handle the furnishing of your property.
Fees vary based on size and scope of project.  

"New Home, Old Things" Love what we did to stage your home? Want that same feel for you new house? Homestyling101 will gladly come in and help you utilize the things you already own and turn your new house into your new home. We'll help you with furniture placement, paint color selection and accessory arrangement. We'll advise you on what to keep and what new things you might want to add to create that designer look. Fees vary based on size and scope of project.

"Revive and Redesign" Not moving but ready for a change? This package appeals to homeowners who are not looking to move or to undergo major renovations in their home but are aching for a change. We'll come in and offer your home a ‘facelift'- incorporating the essentials that you already own but offering a few new tweaks and fluffs to make your place look fresh and new. Choose your favorite room or the whole house and we'll come in and stage to stay! Fees vary based on size and scope of project.
