Yeah, I’m the “Eat Your Broccoli” Kind of Home Stager
Eat your broccoli. Tuck your shirt in. Is your homework done? No ball playing in the house. Turn that DOWN!
Anyone involved in keeping kids on the straight and narrow knows this includes saying unpopular things.
Sure, it’s more fun to ask ‘who wants ice cream?’ or say ‘ok, what’s another half-hour of gaming?’. But parents and family, educators, and child care providers persist because they know it’s for the greater good.
Parenting and home staging is a lot alike. Knowing sellers get one opportunity to put their property’s best foot forward we are tasked with saying the ‘eat your broccoli’ kinds of things.
Clear off the counters. Edit down. Remove the carpet. Have the windows washed. Fix the loose handrail.
As with determined parents, there’s no joy about saying things no one wants to hear. And there’s no wishing for a told-you-so moment. We just want to be there and celebrate with you when you get to the other side of things. TRULY.
Pre-listing consults with The Refreshed Home help prepare you, and your property to both be your market-ready best.
- First, a confidential and judgment-free conversation about your goals and expectations
- Then a complete walk through, and assessment of your property
- We frame a strategy that makes sense, an action plan that’s doable and in alignment with buyer and market expectations
Everything is your choice. But with hundreds of happy clients (and their agents) behind us, and more than $750M worth of closed Westchester County real estate in the books, I can be pretty persuasive about things that’d be in your best interest.
Whether you’re re-evaluating what hasn’t worked, or are making plans for down the line, The Refreshed Home can help get your property noticed, and SOLD! Talk to me today, or plan to attend our next free workshop at the Mt. Kisco Public Library. (Currently scheduled for in-person, but call 914.864.0038 to register, and stay apprised)
