The first thing we do prior to an occupied staging consultation, is send the sellers an email with our pre-staging tips. We have found that sellers often don’t know what to expect when the stagers arrive, and our tips email gives them a breakdown of how the staging will work, and what to do beforehand to make the best use of our time together. Items in our Pre-staging Tips email include things like removing all magnets and artwork from refrigerators, assembling cardboard boxes for items to be stored, removing personal/confidential paperwork which we will want out of sight from potential buyers, and removing off-season clothing to make the closets more roomy and spacious. Our second step is the staging or staging consultation, and after our time with the sellers, if need be, we will leave them with a comprehensive list of items we recommend still be done before listing. NB Designs is often hired to do a full staging and most of these items would be taken care of by us, in the time we’re with you. The last thing we do is to leave a Daily Showing Checklist of things to be neatened and straightened every day in order for the house to stay in tip-top staged state. We always remind our sellers that the listing period is a short time where they have to focus on keeping their home looking fabulous – once they have an accepted contract and are through their option period, they can relax!
