• Staging Your Home Can Increase Your Revenue!

    Selling your home? If you answered, “Yes!” you are probably in the throes of making lots of decisions, organizing, and packing, and prepping each room for open houses. The sooner you sell and the more you can sell it for is likely your goal.

    Is there a step you can take that, statistically speaking, shortens time on market and increases revenue? There most definitely is, and that step is hiring a professional to stage your home.

    In keeping with our boutique property services, TLC Services’ owner, Tara Law, recently became a certified stager through the RI Association of Realtors®. This was a natural addition to the myriad of services that TLC Services offers to property owners and the research is clear that staging is beneficial. Here are just a few bullets as to how staging makes sense and why you should stage your home:

    • Over 90% of buyers look at homes on the internet first. Most home buyers form an opinion of a home in 7-10 seconds upon arrival.

    • A staged home will sell, on average, 5-23 percent higher than a home that is not staged.

    • You will sell faster and for more money if you stage, it is a statistical fact.

    • 95% of staged homes sell in an average of 11 days or less.

    • With an average investment of 1% of the sale price into staging, about 75% of sellers saw an ROI of 5% to 15% over asking price, according to data from the Real Estate Staging Association® (RESA®).

    Staging also enables buyers to visualize themselves in the home. Because it showcases the different spaces and provides a decluttered and depersonalized scape, buyers are drawn into the possibilities and highlights of the property you are selling. The sooner a potential buyer feels that they could live in the space, the more likely and offer will follow.

    Give us a call today to discuss how staging can give you higher revenue and ease some of the burden of prepping for open houses. We know your time is valuable and we know how to make sure your property is poised to attract offers!

  • A tale from the East Side

    From our loyal client of 17 years on Power Street in Providence, RI:

    So, in December, after an unfortunate, faulty furnace disaster, she was the first person I called.  Pro that she is, she put me in touch with a company that sent 4 people to my house the next day. They worked in tandem to survey the problem and start wrapping and boxing lamps, all decor items, photographs, moving and covering furniture, rugs, pictures, all to clear space making it available for repair.  

    A month  later, when all the construction was completed, Tara and her troops descended, clearing every speck of dust and debris, replacing furniture and the other pieces where they belonged, making sure we could return to our home comfortably and safely. It was very impressive. We were amazed. At the time of the incident, I would never have believed 2 1/2 months later things would be back to normal. Tara is a professional. Her teams are extremely well selected and all equally well trained.  I trust them to take care of the place even when we’re away, knowing she will have it ready for us upon our return.

  • Restoring Jim Estes designed house on Block Island

    Our team came to the rescue of this Jim Estes designed beach house on Block Island, which has been serviced by TLCServices for 18 years.

    While opening the house in spring 2020 ( during the height of the Covid pandemic) a broken furnace covered the interior of this showpiece in soot.

    Two weeks of intense labor, clearing out most of the furnishings, replacing and redecorating, deep cleaning and painting , in collaboration with our partners Puraclean disaster team, we turned this property back into a showpiece, ready for its summer of renters.
