Interior Designers can be a very helpful partner for real estate professionals. When I worked exclusively in Los Angeles and Orange County, my connection with agents and brokers not only opened doors to me for new clients, but helped them in making quick sales, preparing a sellers home for showings and advising potential buyers on renovations costs.
Here is how it works:
– Offering consultation to your seller on how to utilize existing furnishings for their home to feature its best assets. Guiding them on minimizing clutter, rearrangement of furnishings, accessories and artwork and minor “facelifts” for a quick offer and sale.
– Meeting with you and your buyer at a property to give realistic ideas on cost of potential renovations and upgrades. Visualization of how their furnishings may work in this home and help to understand the price of a new bathroom or kitchen are considerations that lead to making an offer
– Work with your client at closing to help make their new house a home. At the start, a new purchase may look daunting. Interior design services provide ideas on renovations, space planning and arranging existing pieces in the new home as well as creating the perfect new interior.
– Advising clients considering a scale down. Recently there is a trend to downsizing, especially by baby boomers. There are currently thousands of new homes and condo units being built in at this time. A professional designer gives excellent advice on how to scale down from a larger home yet keep cherished items.
So whether you are a seller, a buyer or just someone who needs help with interior design, ask your realtor if an interior designer consultation might be what you need.
