With two children under the age of 5 our clients were in need of some assistance preparing their home for sale. A busy lifestyle and accumulation of possessions made it difficult and overwhelming for them to know where to start.
A team of 3 organizers were brought in for 5 hours in order to de-clutter and pre-pack any items the family deemed unnecessary while their house was on the market. By labeling all boxes and storing them neatly in the basement we were able to give our clients a head start in regards to the moving process.
Once the home was de-cluttered, we were then able to determine what we could use of the clients for staging purposes and what needed to be rented. By placing the children’s toys in the basement, we converted the living room back to its intended purpose in order to better highlight the home’s potential.
Our preferred partners Duke Removal Solutions arrived at the end of our session to assist with moving furniture and to remove all junk and donation items from the home. This left our clients with a clean slate for upcoming repairs.
Updates such as – carpet replacement, simple repairs, painting and deep cleaning were carried out to freshen up the home prior to sale. Please note these trades were not included in the overall budget noted above.
We returned to the home with a few finishing touches such as a kitchen table and chairs, artwork, accent cushions, lamps and end tables. We left our clients home ready for the market, and it sold in less than one week, for 13% over asking!
What Our Client Had to Say:
“Rachael and her team are incredibly professional! They worked within our availability and through renovations, which was extremely convenient and saved precious time. Rachael was able to come over for her assessment at a time that worked for us, and was able to look beyond the ridiculous mess during renovations and knew exactly what had to go where in each room.”
“The best part was she ensured we incorporated as many pieces of furniture of ours as we could to save on costs and was able to help with de-cluttering, organizing and even junk removal so we didn’t have to worry about that on top of everything else that was going on.”
