Child in Play Room

If an organizer can travel to your home in 15 minutes or less, you can get one of our organizers for as little as two or three hours. Generally, we prefer 5-hour sessions due to longer travel, so this is a great option for people who need help with smaller projects. Examples would include preparing for guests, clearing a junk room, reorganizing a closet, a nursery, or a kitchen pantry, or just getting started and motivated to do something bigger. Rates are hourly (see pricing) and this can be a good solution for those with a lower budget or for those interested in buying a gift certificate for a friend or loved one.

Home Staging is a proven tactic used by realtors to speed up the sale of a home and generally pays for itself by increasing the sale profit. It helps to show off the best features in the home that can draw in a potential buyer by letting them visualize themselves living in their new home. It usually requires decluttering and depersonalizing by packing and storing personal items like pictures and collectibles, and maximizing spaces by rearranging furniture. If necessary, home repairs and/or updates, like a simple coat of paint, can be arranged.

We offer a Realtor Referral Discount that applies to both the realtor and to any clients they refer to us. The discount is 10% off hourly rates and 5% off package rates. These discounts are applied to any decluttering and organizing services.

Another option is to hire us for a Home Staging Consultation / Assessment Report.  We provide the homeowner and/or real estate agent by e-mail with a detailed report that lists recommended changes to every room of the seller’s home. The final report is used to help prioritize and budget any improvements for staging purposes. Our current fee for the time needed to assess the home and prepare the report is $295 (discounts do not apply.)

The Home Staging Consultation / Assessment Report includes the following: 

  • Personal items and clutter to be removed.
  • Suggested furniture rearrangement.
  • Recommended adjustments to art and accessories.
  • Recommended changes in paint colors.
  • Other recommended household updates or repairs.
  • Recommended purchases of new fixtures, furniture, or accessories needed to help showcase the home to its full potential.

Realtors sometimes pay for one of these services if they expect to receive a commission that will more than cover the cost.  There could be up to a 10% increase of selling value in staged homes according to a survey in a January 2015 news release from the National Association of Realtors. Taking the extra step to stage a home can make a difference in how a buyer values it and the price a seller might get for it.

Additional costs beyond the Home Staging Consultation / Assessment Report •

  • We follow up by offering our decluttering and organizing services separately. Whether it’s the realtor or the client paying for the additional services, the “realtor referral discount” applies toward that work (10% off hourly, or 5% off packages.)
  • Third party hires to complete contractor work like updates and repairs, painting, neglected home maintenance, landscaping, etc.
  • Purchases or rental costs for new fixtures, furniture, or accessories.

Homeowner Benefits:

  • Less stress and overwhelm to declutter or stage themselves.
  • Assistance in delivering donations and hauling off large debris (may cost extra.)
  • Decluttering and organizing their things will decrease moving costs (fewer boxes equals less weight.)
  • Staging includes organizing, resulting in a simplified packing/unpacking process.

Realtor Benefits:

  • Increase profits/commissions.
  • Save time and energy from staging themselves.
  • Validation to the client of the importance of decluttering and staging.
  • Reputation to homeowners / Potential referrals.
  • Providing staging as a standard service in certain areas, or at higher price levels, will increase profits and commissions several times over by giving you the maximum ROI.

Staging can be confined to specific rooms or all spaces

  • When living spaces are ok, we would concentrate on storage spaces like closets, basements, garages, and attics.
  • Priority rooms include Living Room and Kitchen.
  • Second priority rooms include Master Bedroom, Dining Room, and Bathrooms.
  • Additional spaces require more time and resources but can have a bigger payoff.

Staging Occupied Homes:

  • Accomplished prior to move out date.
  • Declutter all flat surfaces or busy spaces.
  • Removal of any discarded or donated items.
  • Early packing of personal items stored in discreet areas or offsite.
  • Organize essentials for day-to-day living in aesthetically pleasing way.
  • Rearrange furnishings to a magazine worthy design.

Staging Vacant Homes: (Due to lack of resources and manpower, Organize My Clutter currently does not stage vacant homes.)

  • Vacant Homes take twice as long to sell.
  • Difficult for a buyer to connect emotionally or imagine their own belongings in the spaces.
  • Defects in the home stand out more.
  • Buyers spend less time touring the home.
  • Online photos give a vague visual sense of size and potential.
  • Requires rental of furniture, art, and accessories.

According to a January 2015 news release from the National Association of Realtors, taking the extra step to stage a home can make a difference in how a buyer values it and the price a seller might get for it.

Our speaking engagements last anywhere from 20-90 minutes and can be tailored toward your specific group, club or organization’s requested topic. During this time we can teach basic organizing skills in general or specific terms, discuss the psychology behind chronic disorganization, introduce the pathways to our careers, all while interacting with the group and answering as many questions as possible.

Wrapped Gift Certificate

What better gift is there to give someone who doesn't need anything, except TIME? A few hours of Purge-Pal assistance could be just enough to entice them to continue working with us, or even finish the job on their own. Your gift could be all they need to change their lives for the better. It could relieve them of a project they never seem to get to that causes them on-going stress, and it may turn out to be their favorite gift of all.

Some may hesitate to give a gift of organizing services for fear of offending the recipient. However, today's world is full of busy schedules and demands, and never-ending influx of information. We all can easily get backed up and put off what "we can do tomorrow." As a professional organizers, even we would gladly accept help every now and then. This is NOT a service that is only needed by the chronically disorganized. It's one everyone can use to gain peace in their lives. Haven't we all said "there's just not enough time in a day?"

Gift Certificates can be purchased for any amount and applied toward any service. They make an excellent HOUSE-WARMING GIFT for someone moving into a new home, and a great gift for NEWLYWEDS or COUPLES preparing to combine two lives or homes into one. Give one to a HOMEMAKER who can't seem to get to the basement or attic, the BACHELOR who needs to get his pad in order, the PACK-RAT who may never conquer those "hidden" belongings, or the PROCRASTINATOR who continues to avoid the garage.
