Home Staging New York: Don’t Underestimate the Value of a Staging Consultation

A few months ago I was contacted by Jessica Flagg, a real estate agent with The Corcoran Group.  She told me she had spoken with her client and that her client had agreed to having a home stager come in to do a consultation on her soon-to-be listed Carnegie Hill apartment.
 
When I spoke to her client, Suzanne Dyer, she said to me:
 
 “I doubt you’ll need to be here for more than a half hour.  We really just need to figure out what to do with the dining room that I’m using as an office”. 
 
I told her my minimum is 2 hours, and I’m sure we can find some other things to do.
 
Well, after an initial consultation lasting 3 1/2 hours and a follow up staging lasting 1  1/2 hours, Suzanne was one very happy client:
“The staging process was definitely a worthwhile investment.”
 
 
and so was her agent:
“Your work really made a difference in getting the apartment sold quickly.”
 
The apartment went into contract in 50 days at full asking price!.
 
Here are some before and after pics of the transformation.
