Real Estate Staging

Pre-Market Prep

I had a property on the market for 6 months without an acceptable offer. It was a good house, but buyers could not see past the owner’s dated furniture and unusual possessions. Kelli met with the sellers and convinced them to pack and remove much of what they had in the house, swapping out some of their furniture for new, modern pieces. Fresh, young accessories and art work were added. The result was a bright, open feel that allowed buyers to see how much the house had to offer. Resulting in the property going under agreement within 10 days for $17,000 more than any previous offer.

The first step in the Staging process is the verbal consultation known as the Pre-Market Prep. Design Quest offers this service to both home owners and Realtors alike. This consultation includes a full-home analysis of our recommendations including the areas outlined below. Let's get your property 'photo ready'!

  • Furniture editing recommendations   
  • Evaluate floor plan and overall flow
  • Specify color modifications
  • De-cluttering and de-personalizing
  • Identification and showcasing of the home's assets
  • Identification of home's adverse features and how to combat them
  • Identification of aesthetic repairs
  • Curb appeal

Occupied Staging

Once the Pre-Market Prep has been completed we then move on to the actual hands-on Staging of the home. We can work with your current accessories and/or purchase some new trending pieces to coordinate with your existing furnishings. The choice is yours - whatever your budget will permit. This service is offered in either a half (3 hours) or full (6 hour) day increment.

You see, Staging is far more than just pretty decorating. It's a marketing and merchandising tool used to solicit the best offer in shortest amount of time. An educated, skilled and experienced Stager can help you refine, refresh, and renew a space allowing buyers to connect. Qualified Stagers employ knowledge of interior design, real estate, decorating, marketing, home improvements, and buyer psychology to create a compelling and attractive property. We're not only selling a home - we're selling emotions. 

Kelli’s friendly and professional manner makes her very easy to work with. She leaves sellers with a detailed, written list of recommendations, explains what buyers are looking for and how making the changes can improve the final selling price. I definitely plan to have Kelli work with me and my sellers in the future and have recommended her to other agents.

Staging Is Marketing

Real Estate Staging New Hampshire

Staging is a marketing and merchandising tool that is typically utilized by the client who understands it's value in the process of selling real estate. This strategy is used to appeal to the highest number of buyers in the least amount of time to gain you the highest ROI.

Design Quest uses combined proven design techniques and cost-efficient practices to ensure each home is re-designed both smartly and effectively.

Our Staging services are designed to help you create a compelling and buyer-ready property. From consulting to complete property styling, there is a service for every need and budget.

Today's real estate buyers are smart, savvy consumers who lead very active lives. They are looking for a home that is move-in ready, not one they have to spend weeks to clean, repaint and repair before they can move in. If your home does not appeal to them within the first few moments, they will move on.

The way you live in your home and the way you market and sell your property are two very different things. It's to your advantage to hire an educated, qualified, skilled, and experienced Stager to refine, refresh, and renew your space before your home hits the market.
