There is NO charge for the initial consultation for any service Design with Less provides.
Initial consultation - This is a time for me to get to know you, your likes and dislikes, and your expectations and budget for the project. Also, a time for you to get to know me and how Design with Less works.
Comprehensive plan - Design with Less will do as much or as little as you wish. We will assess both the interior and exterior of your home for staging. We can go through your home room by room and create a written plan for each room - what needs to be removed, any improvements that need to be made, etc. Pictures will be taken of each room as well as the exterior and a comprehensive plan will be laid out for you to follow if you wish to complete the staging yourself. You will get a good idea of what the buyer will see. Change the spaces from a home to a product for sale. This service is a flat rate of $125. Generally, this takes between 2 - 5 hours, depending on the size of the home. Ask your realtor if they offer a staging service as part of their package to you.
Full Staging Service - If you decide to have Design with Less stage the property, we can certainly do that too! We bring in a team with boxes, tape, etc. and pack up and de-clutter the rooms - moving extra furniture and boxes to a predetermined place (sometimes the basement, garage, or in some cases a POD for storage). We will rearrange the furniture and accessories you have in your home, or bring in pieces, as agreed upon. We are at your service to do whatever you need us to do. After accessing your home and discussing the overall plan, you will be given an up front cost for completing the staging. This price depends on the size of the home and the number of rooms to be staged. Generally we can stage a home in 8 - 10 hours and the cost will run from $1000 and up, which is still usually less than your first price reduction!
Staging of Empty Spaces - We stage models or spaces that are currently empty. We bring in furniture, rugs, artwork, and accessories to create a modern, clean, fashionable space for potential buyers. An up front cost can be quoted for staging services and furniture rental. Again, it depends on the size of the space and the rental fees.
