What is Home Staging?
Home Staging is the art of marketing a property by combining decorating, and design to appeal to the greatest number of buyers. The key objectives are to sell the property for the most potential profit with minimal days on market or DOM. In order to maintain a high quality in our furniture selections

What's the difference between Interior Design and Staging?
Staging is meant for making an emotional connection with potential buyers. Staging's purpose to create a marketable property to attract home buyers.  With our skills and expertise, we can showcase your listing using our skillset. While Staging and Interior Design are similar in some aspects the objectives are very different. Staging focuses on selling your home and creating a marketable property. In Interior Design the focus is on creating a personalized space based on your style preferences.

WHERE IS YOUR INVENTORY FROM?
KLHome offers a wide variety of beautiful furnishings sourced from our own inventory collections. Unlike other Stagers, we do not rent from third-party vendors. All furniture including artwork, linens, and accessories are the property of KLHome Staging. At KLHome we handpick each furniture set that we bring out to every property to uphold our high standards and quality control.

WHEN TO CALL IN AN EXPERT?
Do you have a Vacant Home without furnishings? Then there is no time to waste! When a property is staged it offers potential buyers a reference point to visualize what can fit in the space. Did you know the majority of people are not able to visualize spaces? In a furnished space a potential buyer will linger in longer than a vacant property. Gaining more potential to get an offer(s) the longer a potential buyer stays in the home.

WHAT IF THE STAGING ISN'T MY STYLE?
At KLHome we offer a Walk and Talk-style consultation. During the consultation we offer a full in-depth look at your home. We partner with the homeowner during the process for the best results. We give them an action plan to help sell their home. We offer insider tips and advice for marketing your property. We start by focusing on highlighting the key selling points of the property. After the consultation, the homeowner will have resources to help them implement their own staging day using items we sourced in their homes. We may also suggest strategic pieces to complete the look.

SHOULD I STAGE MY HOME PRIOR TO LISTING?
Absolutely! In Real Estate you generally only get one first impression, so make it count! Ask about our Real Estate Photography Package to help showcase your listing.

PRICING ON A VACANT STAGE?
Vacant Home Staging- Per Estimate Using our inventory of beautiful furniture and accessories, we can enhance any home. We have the expertise and knowledge to make your property stand out in today’s competitive marketplace. Email us current home photos and/or MLS link to start the bidding process.

WHY INVEST IN SELLING MY HOME?
In General, staging is typically under 1% of your list price for a Full Staged Home. Investing in your nest egg can potentially increase your overall profits and may lead to less overall Days on Market (DOM). Typically, Home Staging is less than your first price reduction and makes a great first impression with potential home buyers.

How are payments handled?
Each client receives an online account or portal. Payments can be made directly from Paypal, Square or form of Credit Card from the online portal. Initially, the setup fees are due at the time of signing the contract. Setup Fees are only applied during the first month's payment. Setup includes Prep, Planning, Staging Day "Install" and De-staging or teardown. The first month's Staging payment is due prior to staging day.

HOW LONG ARE VACANT STAGING CONTRACTS FOR?
We offer a 60-day contract with all our Vacant Stages. The contract is provided at the time of the proposal.

When will my Staging Day be scheduled?
The monthly payment is due prior to Staging Day to keep Staging Day as scheduled. Once we receive the deposit (setup fees) and the contract then we will coordinate your Staging Day.
