In today's busy world, time is at a premium for hardworking people. "Multi-tasking" has been engrained in our daily habits so much that it is almost second-nature. For example, at this moment I am writing a blog, updating my Facebook status, planning three vacant staging projects for next week, and cooking enchiladas for dinner (beef, not chicken).
Staging your house while juggling kids, work, and the dog may drive busy sellers
over the edge. In situations like this, it is essential for these sellers to have a "plan of attack" when preparing their house for sale. It is the goal of home staging
professional to give suggestions for color choices, furniture arrangement, and home accent placement. However, good staging consultations do not stop there. Realizing the importance of your time, stagers should prioritize your staging To-Do List.
So many times I find sellers cleaning out underneath the bed before cleaning the stain on the carpet that Fluffy left behind. (If you are taking notes... Pet stains on carpet take priority over the junk under your bed.)
Take me for example... although my Facebook status is long overdue for an update, it is not as important as planning my upcoming staging projects. And even though this blog post is keeping all my fan waiting (yes, fan - singular), I have been regularly checking my cooking dinner in an effort to not burn it... again.
PRIORITIES, PRIORITIES, PRIORITIES
Once you have received a proritized staging list, your time will be used more efficiently; thus, allowing your to take Fluffy on an extra walk to prevent further stainage. Yes, staging your house properly does take a lot of work, but it does not need to be an overwhelming obstacle.
While technically, this staging post does not offer the latest trend in home staging tips; hopefully, it will be an encouragment to homeowners who find themselves insanely lost in a pile of boxes and tchotchkes. There is hope.
The Result of Priority Planning --> The enchiladas (made from scratch) are now in the oven with the timer set... The vacant stagings are coming together... This blog is now completed... and My Facebook status awaits, if I can pry the computer away from my teenage daughter.
