StyleSells just like you see on TV?
Yes; except with no drama and no commercials.
What’s the difference between a Stager
Stagers focus on mass-market appeal. Designers
focus on an individual client’s needs.
What’s the difference between Renovation
Renovation enhances the existing. Design
imagines the possible.

StyleSells works with all clients who want
increased beauty, function and appeal in every

property is for sale, eventually. And, that it’s

smart, equity-raising choices.
So, is Home Staging hard?
Not for StyleSells. It’s inspiration,
creativity and knowledge all wrapped-up in a big
bow of experience.
Why can’t my Realtor stage my house? Why
can’t I do it myself?
People have limited and specific skill sets.
The skills of excellent stagers are rare.
StyleSells stagers do what we do for the same
reason Celine Dion sings and Wayne Gretzky plays
hockey. Because, we can.
Can’t buyers just look past my house
conditions to envision their own home?
Rarely, just as most people can’t look at groceries and envision dinner.
It’s a “Seller’s Market” everything
is selling; do I still need to stage?
Absolutely! Why wouldn’t you present your
best product and put more money in your pocket.
It’s a “Buyers Market” few houses are
selling. What good will it do to stage?
When the market it flooded, it’s essential
that your house be the one that floats to the top.
If only one house sells today, staging will
increase the odds of it being yours.
How much does staging cost?
Staging and Design consultation are affordable.
The typical staging investment is substantially
less than the first price reduction on an unsold
house. And, generally less than the carrying cost
of just 1 extra month of an unsold house (i.e.
mortgage, taxes, utilities, mowing/snow removal
Who pays for the Staging? The Realtor or
Realtors, understanding the value added by
staging, are inclined to pay the initial
consultation fee. Often, there are no further
costs. If there are, your stager can maximize the
appeal of your house on even the smallest budget,
ensuring that the equity increase far outweighs
your staging investment.
How long is a staging consultation? Do you
just tell us or do you help us do it?
An initial staging consult lasts about 1-2
hours (depending on house size and condition). A
staging plan is developed including everything you
need to know to achieve success. StyleSells works
through the entire process with you, providing as
much or as little help as you need.
How do I prepare for a staging consult?
Just relax, we’re home stagers not housework
inspectors. Our focus is entirely on how to get
your listing beautifully presented for the least
amount of your time, effort and money.
Will there be a big “To do” list?
A StyleSells ‘to do’ list is often shorter
and involves less work than the homeowner
Do I have to paint? Must I get rid of my
Raised equity is usually a result of simple
rearrangement of your own furniture and minimizing
of visual distractions. If more than that is
required, StyleSells will ensure only recommend
that which will translate into better online
photos, more successful showing and more offers
People say our house looks good. Even our
Realtor says so; why should we stage?
Good listings sell for less money than great.
Good listings stay on the market longer than great
listings. Why settle for good when StyleSells will
help you achieve great.
Why can’t I wait to see if my house will
sell without staging?
You only get one chance to make a first
impression. If it’s not great, you’ve lost
your buyer and their realtor. A staged house will
keep a realtor coming back with more buyers, even
if the house was wrong for their initial buyer.
having trouble selling my vacant house; do you
Yes. Buyers become building inspectors minutes
after entering a vacant listing; even minor flaws
catch their eye. That focus on little defects will
adversely effect speed of sale and perceived value.
Vacant houses lack appeal to buyers like an empty
plate fails to appeal to a hungry person.
StyleSells has a large inventory of rental
furniture and décor that directs focus to the
best assets of a listing.
