Listing a home and moving a family is one of the most stressful life changing events. There is so much to accomplish in such a short amount of time that it can all seem overwhelming.

Now you might be wondering, “just how do I actually get the best value for this place in such a short amount of time?” Fact is, it took years for us to make it a home. “I have no time or idea how to get all of this done.”

Don’t worry, we here on the Sheri Foley Allen Team are here to help. It’s what we do!

Why are we different? Our team has years of design and business experience and home staging is our specialty. We provide a complimentary service that is customized to meet your needs and goals. Getting your home ready to sell is accomplished in a series of steps. Steps we’ve matured over the years to make the whole process as stress free as possible.  Our goal is to be your advocate throughout the whole process and get your home sold quickly and for top dollar.  We are passionate about what we do and our clients are our top priority.  Stop by Zillow, we are proud to consistently have the most sales in our zip code 22192!  So, take a deep breath and repeat after me “SERENITY NOW, SERENTIY NOW…” Let’s take a quick look at how this service can help you.

Now, some of you may be asking, why stage? Quite frankly that’s an easy one. To sell your home faster and get the best value. There is a plethora of studies that say this. According to a 2018 survey by Home Staging Resource, 85% of staged homes sold for 6-25% more than unstaged homes.  Home Staging saves you time and money. Using our knowledge of the market, we transform your home so that it attracts “your best buyer.” We want the buyer to have an emotional connection to your home. Remember back to when you bought your home? There is a little finesse that we’ve sharpened to help you attract your best buyer. Although we do not proclaim to be in the same league as the magicians  Penn and Teller, Home Staging is rather like scattering  magic throughout your home.  A little magic is always good right?…

 ONE.. We will come to your home and craft a unique solution that best fits your own home.  We will discuss our process and determine what needs to be done in your home for it to make the best impression on buyers.  We will also determine what furniture and accessories will be needed.  We have a warehouse full of unique pieces to help any home present at its best.  So, step one is our plan for you.

TWO.. is where you come in. It’s important to understand that prior to our designer’s unique plan can be implemented, you will probably have some homework to do.  You may have to declutter and clean so your home sparkles. This can be overwhelming but focus on the benefits. It will all be worthwhile..

THREE.. Throughout this process our team uses a site coordinator. This person is like a music conductor, keeping everyone on track playing from the same sheet of music. So, for step three, they arrange for a specific day and time for our team to perform our part. They coordinate the choice of furniture or wall art to use, the transportation of all these items from our storage facility to your home on that day. They assign tasks to each team member ensuring our part of the project is completed on time in the most efficient and effective manner. 

 FOUR..  Our professional photographer/videographer will perform their part by creating your unique content to be shared across all our platforms. Your home will be featured on MLS, the web (Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, our site etc.). All of this is to generate demand for your home and attract your best buyer.

FIVE.. Get ready for that perfect buyer to fall in love with your home.
