AND WHAT YOU REALLY WANT TO KNOW IS:
HOW MUCH IS THIS GREAT SERVICE GOING TO COST ME?
Only $65 an hour.***
***: I charge $65 an hour for myself. If I need to hire help with moving furniture, etc. I will charge $85- $350 an hour based on what we are moving. If it is a huge glass china cabinet that requires 3 King Kong type men, that would be the higher price. I will always tell you in advance and let you know how many hours I anticipate charging you the higher rate. So if I am organizing your books, moving your furniture, ironing your new bedding or cleaning out your garage you pay me $65 an hour. To be honest, I hate cleaning your garage for $65 an hour and love organizing your books, but All the homeowners I have worked with in the past actually thought my services were very inexpensive after they saw how much work I completed in a short period of time.
How much is the staging portion of my service going to cost you?
I determine the cost of the staging, by how items I put in your home. Each item in my inventory has a “rental value” which will determine the overall cost of the staging. This “rental value” includes:
- Me picking out the perfect pieces to compliment your home.
- Purchasing them if I don’t already have something in my inventory that will work.
- Storing them before and after use.
- Delivering them
- Placing them in your home, in just the right spot. This can be harder than you think.
- Picking them back up, after your home has sold in record time.
- Keeping them clean and maintained before and after delivery.
- Logging them in and out of inventory until they are used again.
I will be able to give you a close estimate as to the staging cost during our first meeting.Everything I put in your home I “lend” you for a period of 3 months. If you need the items longer, I will charge you 20% of the initial staging cost, each month thereafter. If you only need the items for 1 month you pay the same as if you used them for 3 months. I come pick everything up after it is determined escrow will close and you are ready to start packing up.
I look forward to working with you!
