So you're ready to pack up and get the heck outta that house! You reach out to your best friend's realtor and she/he stops by to take a look at your current property. You know it already looks good and that no one's really worried about the dog's mud stains in the carpet or those mismatched furniture pieces you bought from the local flea market some 15 years ago. They're not buying that stuff anyway until . . . Sally or Johnny from XYZRealty wants to chat about a "great opportunity". "Home Staging?! What's that?!?! I don't have any money for that!!" I know you feel overwhelmed, anxious and bombarded right now - take a deep breath because it's Okay! If you find yourself in a position where your realtor highly recommends you stage your home, please know that there are options available to you. Please visit any of the 3 sites below and select the one that fits best with your situation. There's no money upfront out of your pocket, so give it a try!
Zoom Casa – A real estate concierge platform that allows you to work with your listing agent and vendors (including myself) to finance any expenses that will cover updates, repairs, staging etc. For my services, once you are approved, I will collect the staging cost upfront and you will be charged at escrow (including additional fees). I’ve been hearing great things about Zoom Casa within the community of home stagers.
PayPal - You're already familiar with it and probably use it quite often for daily or monthly transactions. Well, did you know PayPal offers six months same as cash? With this selection, I will send you an invoice with the Paypal Credit option (used to be called Pay Later). I will collect payment upfront and you have the option to make minimal payments for 6 months.
Joist - Another real estate concierge platform that partners with loan companies and work with you to finance any expenses that will cover updates, repairs, staging etc. You can apply for a loan online through the Joist estimate document and they also have a mobile app that you can download and use. For my services, once you are approved, I will collect staging cost upfront and you will be charged at escrow.
