When would I need this type of consultation? This service is excellent for realtors or homeowners who are getting ready to put a house on the market, and want to maximize resale value.
Design process: This service typically takes a few days. First, we will meet on site to walk through your home. Typically this takes 1 hour and I will take photos and notes about existing conditions in the home, as well as what level neighboring homes seem to be finished at. After our meeting I will produce a PDF document outlining suggested changes, additions, or items to maximize the home's value. My goal is to bring you multiple offers within the first few days the home is listed.
Takeaways: From this service, you will get a PDF outlining my suggestions for paint colors, finish selections/ upgrades, schematic furniture layouts, landscaping improvements, lighting, and decor for staging. The PDF recommendations are based on our meeting at your home, as well as my understanding of our local markets and universal appeal in design.
What if I don't need you to look at all the rooms? This can actually make things a bit more complicated for me, so I don't change the price when you're keeping some rooms as they are. This package is meant to help you create a cohesive, universally appealing look across your entire home, so I will still spend time looking at those rooms which aren't changing and how they impact your entire home's value. And I might still have some suggestions for those rooms as well!
What if I'm not happy with some of your selections in the PDF? I won't hold you to use my exact recommendations! This document is meant to be a launchpad for you to sell your home at the best value possible. You are welcome to make substitutions or changes. You are also welcome to reach out for additional help (available hourly at $125/ hour) with sourcing specific items.
Available as hourly upgrades ($125/ hour): Product selection revisions or shopping with client, construction drawings, product sourcing, product delivery, scheduling inspections, or meeting with your contractor to review design plans.
Not currently available: no furniture is currently available for staging purposes, submission of permitting paperwork (must be done by your contractor), structural engineer or architect approval stamps for permitting (requirements depend on county & extent of project)
