When you hire an assistant, they will likely have a limited set of skills. With Team Concierge, you are hiring a staff of 4 team members with at least 5 years of dedicated experience in the field of real estate administration, writing, design, and marketing. You don’t have to train, deal with staff turn-over, or spend your time managing multiple people. We manage our staff so you don’t have to.
We suggest placing an order at least 3-4 days before your listing date in order to get your materials before the listing date. Once our team receives the order, we will reach out to you and request basic information about the property. We will then commence with preparation for the marketing tasks listed on our website for the package you ordered and thereafter email you drafts to proof and approve. The first time you order, we will ask you for your personal profile photo and brokerage logo plus social media login information so that we may easily streamline our tasks thereafter. All your information is held in strict confidence on our password-protected platform that we will create for you.
Yes, you may certainly ask us to delete certain tasks and replace them with reasonable listing related tasks.
We always send you a draft to proof prior to posting anything online or to your clients. We require an approval in writing since it’s the REALTOR that was hired to represent the homeowners and thus should review all information that will be published.
The marketing materials used in our reasonably priced packages are pre-designed templates that cannot be altered due to the low service cost. However, we can personalize the colours to match your existing colour scheme and add your photo plus logo to the design. We also provide a custom design service on our Brochure page.
Team Concierge provides human power to complete tasks that you would normally perform or outsource to many people. All third party supplier costs that are not included in our service packages are at the expense of the sales professional. Usual costs are sign installation, stagers, news print ads, additional brochure prints other than what is stated as inclusive in our packages.
We work on Eastern Time Zone and are available to you Monday through Friday 9:30AM – 6:00PM excluding holidays.
The email will come from our general domain, firstname.lastname@example.org with a signature “from the personal office of… Realtor’s name”
We strictly adhere to our Terms of Service and confidentiality is of utmost importance to us. Each of our team members has executed a confidentiality and non-solicitation agreement to ensure that your information is kept completely private.
How do I get started or book a staging Consultation?
Please add this service to your cart and the Stager will call you to arrange an appointment.
Why is home staging effective?
The main reason Home staging is effective is that people purchase homes with their emotions and first impression is paramount. Home staging showcases the home’s best features while downplaying unfavourable attributes. Effective furniture placement and accessorizing add colour, warmth and that “home” feeling for potential buyers. A Professional Home Stager is trained and experienced in using effective furniture/decor techniques with a buyer’s eye in order to appeal to a properties target market. Thus, establishing a connection to more potential buyers. The goal is to increases the value of a property by presenting a well-loved and well-maintained home, displaying a desired lifestyle, appealing to a broad amount of buyers and maximizing the positive attributes of the home.
When should a property be staged?
Ideally, you will want to have the property staged before you place it on the market so all of the potential buyers see your home looking its best. If the buyer did not like the home on the first viewing, it is very difficult to draw them back for a second viewing. If your property is already on the market, it’s not too late. You can always launch another marketing campaign once it’s staged.
How much does staging cost?
Staging should be seen as an investment because any money you invest in staging you will receive a return on from the higher sale price that could be obtained. Staging quotes depend on a few factors including the size, location and price point of your property. The cost ranges from $850 for occupied homes and Vacant Staging varies from $2,000 to $6,000 per month rental. If the property has not sold yet, the subsequent month’s rentals are discounted at 10% of the original cost.
If the property sells in a short time, do I get a partial refund? If the property sells within a few days, GREAT! That means we’ve contributed to a successful sale. However, the minimum rental period is one month and therefore there is no refund once the property is staged.
Is the Staging company insured?
It is vital that the staging company you hire is insured. Rest assure, A Lady’s Touch: Home Staging and Interior Design does carry business liability insurance with Jones DesLauriers, Insurance Management Inc. This type of insurance covers damage to the property, and contents within the home as well as potential injuries to employees of the staging company.
How long does the staging process take?
The staging process usually takes a couple of days. The first step is the consultation and depending on how much de-cluttering is required on the part of the homeowner. Once the home is de-cluttered and cleaned, the stager would require approximately 2-4 hours to deliver, set up and stage the home.
What is included in a staging Consultation?
The staging consultation includes a one-hour assessment of the home and a written report. The stager will walk through the home with a buyer’s eye and make suggestions for each room of the property. The stager may recommend removing personal items such as family photos, rearranging furniture and de-cluttering to name a few. Following the consultation, the stager will provide a written report of all the suggestions and recommendations discussed during the walkthrough.
Do I have to be present at the staging appointment?
No, you don’t have to be present for the staging process, however, you or your authorized agent will have to be present for the initial consultation so we can gather the necessary background information to effectively showcase the property.
The stager will confirm an appointment to see the property, make notes and provide you with a list of suggestions. They will then prepare an estimate for staging services should you request, which will be emailed to you within 2 business days.
Once you accept the estimate, the stager will email you a staging agreement to execute. They will then begin to prepare for your staging by selecting the perfect furniture and accessories to merchandise the property. 50% will be due on signing and the balance will be due before the staging day.
On the scheduled staging day, we show up at a pre-arranged time to install the furniture and accessories that will make present the property in its best light.
