Affordable Home Staging

We see many searches in our Google Analytics for “affordable home staging” and when we check them out, the searches are filled with “cheap home staging”, “home staging that doesn’t cost a dime”, “home staging equals rearranging chairs”.

People, you couldn’t be more WRONG!

As professional organizers and accredited home stagers, and, may we add, as a licensed real estate agent here in Bergen County, New Jersey, there is a distinct art to home staging that only a professional can achieve, which will net you up to 6% more when your home sells.

You may think that home staging is nothing more than rearranging chairs, or that it can be done on the cheap so you don’t have to pay anyone to do it, but, did your home sell for more when you attempted that? Of course not. Did you home spend less days on the market after your home staging attempt? No, it did not.

Here’s why you should not attempt to do it yourself, and why you SHOULD engage a professional to do it for you.

  1. Successful home staging always starts with professional organizing. You need to cut through the years of stuff you’ve collected, and be able to discard, donate, or otherwise get rid of the “stuff”. A professional organizer helps you do exactly that in at least half the time it would normally take you.
  2. Decluttering and organizing leave the pathway open for you to be able to de-personalize your home so that it can begin the home staging process, whereby it becomes an entity that a potential buyer can come into and feel like they “are home”. Not in YOUR home, but in THEIR POTENTIAL NEW HOME.
  3. A professional home stager is able to de-personalize your home successfully, and beautifully, tucking your beloved pictures and memories away for you, and making the residence a place of neutral inviting beauty that will not only impress a potential buyer but make them feel like THIS IS THEIR NEW SPACE.
  4. A professional home stager will rearrange your furniture to give more of an open concept feel, without knocking down walls, and give your rooms a natural flow of positive energy that buyers find attractive.
  5. At the end of the day, the professional home stager will be able to up your game on the real estate market by decluttering, organizing, de-personalizing and engaging a positive flow that nets you up to 6% more on your sales price.

What’s not to love?

Oh yeah. The price of the professional organizing and home staging. That’s right. It shouldn’t cost a dime, right?

Well actually it costs less than $500. At least with our services it costs less than $500. That is your investment in getting to sell your home quicker and for more money.

If your home is priced to sell at around $450,000 and it sells for 5 to 6% more because of the aforementioned services, your investment of $500 is well worth it in comparison to the $22500 to $27000 you gain over selling price because it was organized and professionally staged.

The Many Benefits of a Well Organized Office

The benefits of a well organized office, whether it be a home office, small company office or a corporate office cannot be overstated. The most obvious benefits are functionality, productivity and efficiency.

Organized Home Office Work Space

You are able to find everything when you need it, thereby able to service your clients or customers quickly and efficiently, and people like that. They don’t want to hear that you can’t find their paperwork or whatnot. People don’t like excuses. 

Another benefit of a well organized office is less stress. Put simply, you know where stuff is. Your files are where they should be. Your computer is also organized so you can easily and quickly find documents and images. And I think we can agree less stress in our lives is a huge plus.

As a professional organizer and organizing service here in Bergen County NJ since 2009, we’ve had plenty of experience helping clients get their offices and work spaces optimally organized, decluttered and in excellent working order. We set up a system that you can easily stick with and stay organized with for the long term. 

Here are just a few of the ways we help you:

  • Declutter, sort and shred everything you are not using, haven’t used in a long time, don’t want or don’t need
  • Establish an efficient filing system – since we are in the digital age, mountains of paper files are no longer necessary to have around
  • Organize your digital and cloud based filing areas – keep less files on your actual hard drive, more on the cloud. Hard drives die. 
  • Declutter your desktop. Keep the necessary tools you use and get rid of the rest. 
  • Declutter and organize your filing and supply drawers or cabinets. 
  • Create inboxes that make sense especially if you work with other people.
  • Sort through your mail on a regular basis to avoid the dreaded PILE
  • Rearrange your office furniture for a more relaxing, realigned and functional way to work. This encourages productivity. Productivity is good. 
  • Create zones for different tasks. The creation of work space zones also encourages productivity which means you get more stuff done and move on.
