Frequently Asked Questions
Houston occupied home staging is performed for home sellers who will still live in the home while it is on the market. It differs from vacant home staging in that accommodations have to be made that will allow a family to still make use of the home while keeping it in ‘selling shape’ to attract buyers.
Whether it is occupied or vacant home staging, home staging showcases your home in the best possible light so that it appeals to the largest audience possible. This can be as simple as reducing clutter and reorganizing the space, or as complex as bringing in all new furniture and accessories, or somewhere in between.
We’ll help clearly define all areas of your home and eliminate those distractions that will keep buyers from seeing and remembering the great features of your house.
No, there is no trickery involved. As a Houston homeowner, you are still required by law to disclose any major flaws of the home that you are aware of. We can – and will- create a Houston home staging plan that will help to minimize some less appealing aspects of the home, while drawing the attention to its great features. An investment in home staging shows buyers that you take pride in your home, something else that is more important than you might think.
By neutralizing the space and clearing out the clutter, potential buyers can better visualize themselves in your house. If you fill your home with personal items, clutter, and bold colors, buyers are distracted and can’t see the potential of the space. Home staging is simply a tool that helps them to do this
With the home staging consultation, you will receive a home evaluation report, including all notes regarding the suggested updates, repairs, furniture arrangements, paint colors, and decorating suggestions. The process for vacant staging is explained in more detail here, and for occupied home staging you’ll find it here.
You will receive an evaluation report from the consultation immediately following. If you have requested pricing on further staging services or staging rental items, you will receive these within the next day or two unless otherwise advised.
You don’t have to do any of them. However, the more you complete, the better your chances of selling your home faster and for the most money.
We will return to review what has been done, what is left to do, and any follow-up questions that you might have.
Definitely. While it may sound cliché, you only get one chance to make a first impression. When your home is listed, you want to be sure it is ready to show at its best, both in pictures and for showings.
Houston vacant home staging helps to define the space for buyers. Each room has a purpose, and staging helps clearly identify this to potential buyers. Empty rooms tend to look smaller, and can leave buyers questioning whether their own furniture will fit in these rooms. By setting up a room properly, not only can they see that the furniture fits but it will give them the ideal placement, and inspire them with the decorative touches.
Your home is generally your biggest asset and investment. Home staging will help to maximize your return on this investment, so every penny spent on Houston home staging is money very well spent.
We try to work with what you already own as much as possible but sometimes we do need to purchase or rent new items.
We understand that it might seem like a waste if the new homeowner might just change it, but there are a few reasons why this makes sense to do:
- If the colors you’ve chosen are bold, it will distract potential buyers from being able to see the potential of the rooms.
- A fresh, neutral paint means the new homeowner doesn’t have to paint right away, and gives the home that “move-in ready” look and that is just what many home buyers are looking for.
- It is one of the least expensive updates you can make to your home, with one of the greatest return on your investment.
Selection and placement of artwork, furniture, and accessories may not be to your personal taste. While you may voice concerns with any selected items, you have hired us for our skills and expertise, and we will ensure that the staging items will be chosen and placed to best showcase your home. We all have the same goal in mind – to sell your house!
It doesn’t matter if it is a whole house or just a one-room makeover, Houston home organization by Just Organized by Taya will help you to become clutter free and remain organized after we leave. We can work on all the following:
- Living areas
- Home office
- Unpacking Service
- Bedrooms and Closets
- Collectibles/ Memorabilia
- Children’s playrooms
- General Clutter
- And much more
During the whole process, you will be respected and treated with kindness, courtesy, and complete confidentiality.
You are in charge of deciding whether you would like to be there for the session(s). If we work together you will not only get a more functional space, but also a new set of skills for organizing that you can use for the rest of your life. We understand that some of our clients are simply too busy, so we’ll gladly organize your space for you as well.
We will provide a free phone assessment prior to your first appointment in order to start planning before we meet. During the first session, we will tour your home and talk about what is and isn’t working.
We will then begin the organization process by working on a small area of your home based on your priorities and goals. We may recommend organizational products that will help maximize your space, but we try to repurpose items that you already have in your home as much as possible.
You aren’t alone. Most people feel the same way. This is a sensitive issue for many people that we work with. We don’t look at your space with a critical or even judgmental eye. We are great at making this process as comfortable and easy as possible for every client. We also sign a confidentiality agreement with you so you know that your privacy is important.
Why Choose a Home Stager? Take The Guesswork Out of Selling Your Home!
There is never a second chance to make a first impression. Buyers will typically only take 15 seconds to make a decision regarding your property.
Why leave that first impression to chance?
Home staging can add up to 20% of your home’s value.
Empty rooms appear smaller than they really are
Without a frame of reference, it’s incredibly difficult to tell the scale and size of a room
Vacant houses and apartments appear soulless and no emotional attachment is felt when the buyer walks into a room
Small defects will stand out because the buyer will have nothing else to look at
Buyers think the owner is “desperate to sell so they don’t have to carry two mortgage payments, taxes, utilities, etc.”
NO! The final decision is down to you. However, we will make observations and ask the right questions in order to help you pick what is and isn’t important to keep. Many choose to donate items that are still in good condition, and we can help with that too.
When it comes to Just Organized by Taya’s home organization services you can be as hands-on or hands-off as you want. It is recommended that you be there but it is not mandatory. We will work with you through the whole process and find the right solution for you. Different systems work for different people and the only time that is best for you to be there is during the sorting sessions because we need to know what you want to keep and get rid of. Once you have approved the layout or design, we can work on implementing the plan with or without you being home.

A house cleaner simply tidies and cleans your home. House cleaners make money by coming back to your home to clean your house or office by rearranging the clutter constantly. They don’t find the source of the issue, which happens to be disorganization. Just Organized by Taya offers a professional Houston Home Organizing service where we come to your home, work our magic and then provide you with a clear plan to remain organized for months, years, or longer without having to use our services constantly. Our goal is to set you up for long term success, which is done through communication and experience. You can learn to live clutter free and even have more control over your environment – and your life – again.
There are plenty of reasons that you should use a professional organizer. Ask yourself:
- Am I drowning in paper?
- Am I losing space in my home due to growing piles of clutter?
- Am I wasting time looking for lost items?
- Am I paying late fees for not paying my bills on time?
- Is this situation causing me frustration and stress?
- Am I spending money on items that I know have bought, but can’t find?
If you have answered yes to any or even all of these questions, then you would benefit from the help of Just Organized by Taya. Even though there are some who lead an organized life, but have found that they are disorganized due to a lack of time or a life situation, such people may benefit from my help to reorganize your life.
Professional organizers know all the latest products and processes that will make organizing easier, which gives you access to many resources and ideas that you wouldn’t have time to try or research on your own. Organizing is more than just tidying up and getting rid of items, as a professional organizer helps to find out why you have to do this and provides long term solutions to adjust your habits and environment.
A professional organizer is a person that uses their knowledge and expertise to work with clients by guiding, teaching, and suggesting solutions and systems to help them to reach and subsequently maintain their organizational goals. A professional organizer is not a cleaning service. They are experts who can recommend and teach you new ways of doing things. When it comes to selecting someone who will work with you closely and you will be teaching about your intimate habits, they should be educated, communicate well, be non-judgmental, respectful, flexible, and compassionate as well as strong enough to keep you on task and focused. Just Organized by Taya provides this to all of their customers.
