Estate/Probate Homes:

Late in 2018, my father unexpectedly passed away. The loss of him in our lives was compounded by the need prepare his home to be sold. My siblings are spread out throughout the country and have a lot going on in their own lives. My wife and I offered to take on the disposal of the personal belongings and ready his home for sale. If you are going through this or expect to be soon, the prospect of all of this can be daunting. After the heirlooms and valuables have been taken out of the property, what is left is often a lifetime of personal items that hold no real worth to anyone else. These items must be cleared from the home, donated or taken to the curb and the property might need some real TLC, repairs and painting before it can be staged, and listed for sale in order to achieve the highest amount of value for the estate. Doing this work also helps to insure that the home will not linger on the market. 

As my wife and I went through this, we felt a sense of calling. We felt that surely there are other families that would be grateful to have someone help them through this emotional time in their lives. As such, we made a decision that we would offer our services and take some of the worry and stress, as well as potential disagreements between surviving family members that could arise do to the nature of dealing with the estate of a loved one.

I've included some pictures below of some of the issues we dealt with. Additionally, in my wife's practice area of residential home staging, I have many before and after pictures that can give you a real sense of how staging can maximize the value of your home and help it to sell quicker in today's market. Please let me know if we can assist you with your estate or the estate of your loved one...we would love to help.
