Staging On a Budget

Dawn Ohnstad (1)

There are lots of meanings for the word “Staging”and the first thing most people think about is the  dollar signs! They imagine moving companies taking out their furniture, interior designers charging by the hour, hiring painters, storage units to rent, and furniture and accessories being brought into their home.  Cha-Ching! It must be said, this type of staging is out there and there are homes and owners where perhaps it is  appropriate.

But, my staging is nothing like this!  When I stage your home my goal is to keep costs down! The client pays for my time, which is usually 1-2 hours coaching room by room as the owner takes notes.  I use their furniture, their belongings for accessorizing and their artwork. The staging includes the closets, shelves, yard, garage, basement, laundry room and even the furnace/storage areas! Plus, I am fun!  (I really love doing this!)

“Dawn staged our house when we put it up for sale in 2008 and it looked fantastic!   Little did I realize that removing clutter, rearranging, making some inexpensive changes, and simplifying some rooms could make a world of difference.  In fact, after she completed the staging, I nearly considered taking the home off the market!  I would highly recommend Dawn’s staging services at any home value.”

“Dawn was instrumental in staging our home and completely a timely and successful sale! She came into our home and went room by room with us. She created a beautifully staged home using the furniture and decor that we had. We had little to no added expense and best of all we sold in ONE day!!S he is kind, caring and so optimistic! She gave great advice and truly has a eye for this! We would absolutely recommend Dawn to come in and stage your home too!! We promise you won’t be disappointed.”
