Home Stager Planning Move To Saratoga Springs
By Lisa Morahan
Professional Home Staging by Let Me Organize You is busy readying homes for sale in Saratoga Springs and the Capital District at large. Neil Bindelglass, ASP (Accredited Staging Professional), combines the art of home decorating with professional organizing to give homeowners the best chance at selling as soon as their home hits the market.
Let Me Organize You uses the approach of ‘undecorating’ a house in order to get it ready to market. According to statistics by ASP, a staged home sells, on average, within 32 days of coming on the market as opposed to an average of 160 days if left alone.
With both spring and a challenging real estate market, it is an opportune time for homeowners to seek the help of professionals. “So often people list a home and after it doesn’t sell, they drop the price $20,000, for instance, without blinking rather than invest a relatively small amount initially to better their chance of selling,” Bindelglass said. “I recommend after a listing is stale to actually take it off the market, and hir me to give the house a fresh, clean and bright new look. It can then go back on MLS as a newly listed property, bettering its chance to sell.”
Let Me Organize You charges for an initial consultation that covers the entire property from the front curb to inside the home, attic to basement, all the way out to the backyard. A thorough analysis room by room is then given to the agent and/or homeowner.
Because of his ability to walk into any environment and see the bones of the home and how to best accentuate them, Bindelglass believes this talent gives him an edge. The main aspect of staging most often is decluttering and depersonalizing a home so anyone can walk in and imagine it as theirs, he noted. Let Me Organize You does as little or as much as a homeowner needs for a flat rate. “I’ve helped with repairing blinds, cleaning, painting and even packing boxes,” he said. This often saves time and money when it comes time to move.
Let Me Organize You focuses on the essentials needed by a homeowner when in the midst of selling, a capsule home, as he refers to it. Bindelglass makes a clear distinction between a home you live in and a house you are trying to sell. “I help people get rid of all the clutter, photographs and personal collections that keep potential buyers from envisioning it as their own,” he said. The best advice he gives for those about to have an open house is to make sure the house is as clutter-free, clean and smelling fresh as possible.
Although the business has been in operation in the Capital District, Bindelglass hopes his own personal move to Saratoga Springs will allow him to concentrate even more on the local market to help his business grow.
