Stage…or be Upstaged

Firstly let me introduce myself. My name is Ilana Weismark and I am an ASP®, (Accredited Staging Professional). I was born in France and have lived in Atlanta for 13 years.

I own and operate Ooh La La Home Staging, LLC, a Home Staging company catering to the Greater Atlanta region.

Besides my family and friends, there are 2 things that truly make me happy:
1) Using my creativity on a daily basis,
2) Helping Realtors, Investors and Sellers sell their house faster and for top dollar,
2) Being in my woman-cave (a.k.a. Garage) and building, refinishing, creating, pieces to be used in my staging jobs. If I am not covered in splinters from sawing wood or if I don’t have paint in my nails, I know I haven’t been working hard enough.

What is Home Staging, you’ll ask?

Well, when you get ready to place your home on the market for sale it becomes a product. Similar to a product on the shelf at your local store, the product has features and benefits as well as pluses and minuses, and there is always competition.

To win against the competition in the marketplace the product must be priced right and look better than the other products for sale.

Your home is no different, it is one of many homes for sale, and you must present it to the buyers in the best way possible, and that means that you need to get it Staged.

Staging is the process of preparing any home for sale, regardless of price, condition or location. Using a proven professional set of guidelines, I work with sellers room by room inside the home and all around the outside to get it Staged in the best way possible for the least amount of investment.

Take a look at these Before and After photos from recent Ooh La La Home Staging jobs.

Look at the difference! The empty living room looks cold, unappealing. In real life, this room is not enormous and it may be difficult for a buyer to imagine setting up their living-room. In the Staged room, everything is spelled out to the potential buyer. Where they could put their sofa, how to fit everything in without breaking the flow of the house etc. Simple furnishings, nice pops of color and voilà! This room just went from Drab to Fab!

Check out this Master Bedroom. Ok, so there are refinished hardwood floors, a great barn door to the master bathroom, but at first glance a buyer might come in and not see that their furniture would fit into the tight space. Enters Ooh La La Home Staging and…. Ooh la la!!! The queen bed fits perfectly, with bedside tables, and an extra chair. Warm colors, nice accessories, details that pull you into the room, and define it for you. Beautiful.

In essence…. Stage or be Upstaged!
