Staging your home with Moov: how we’ll get your house ready for market

One of the key steps in selling your home is getting it staged—the process of rearranging or tidying your home to entice potential buyers. This comes naturally for some, but for others it can be downright overwhelming and time consuming. Sometimes all it takes is having another person coming in with fresh eyes and a single focus—that’s where Moov can help.

We work like a modern-day Mary Poppins: moving room to room, making changes here and there, adding essential items, hiding wires, opening blinds. We know that if we can stage your home so that others are able to easily imagine themselves living in your space, your home is one step closer to being sold. If potential buyers aren’t distracted by your belongings, then they are better able to imagine themselves settling in and creating the home they’ve always dreamed of.

This process recently came to life in Richmond, Vermont – the community we call home! Robin, our client, was trying to sell her house. She had worked tirelessly painting, cleaning, and packing her family’s belongings for their big move. The For Sale by Owner sign was ready to be placed in the front yard and the photographer was scheduled to take photos for the online listing.

We met with Robin a few days prior to the photographer’s appointment to get a full understanding of her needs. Together we created a plan that worked for her schedule and her family, and we were able to stage her home efficiently and stylishly.

“Marlene and Claire were a huge help in staging my home,” says Robin. “As an owner selling my property, I needed direction about how to get it ready to sell. They talked with me about the process and developed a plan with me. Their kind, fun, direct style gets it all done without stress! They used some of what I had to decorate the house and brought in beautiful items to complement it all—and it sold within the week! I couldn’t have done it without Moov!”
