Increase Your Home's Resale Value and Expedite the Selling Process
Home Staging expert Susan Atwell of AtWell Staged Home first began showcasing homes for friends and family as a hobby. After just a few home stagings, and with such great results to her credit, what began as a leisurely sideline quickly evolved into an emerging business with rich potential for the homeowners for which she had consulted.
“Selling a home is more than just a number’s game,” says Susan. “There’s a creative aspect to selling a home that goes beyond list price.”
For Susan, this creativity is based on careful consideration of:
your home’s style, look, and feel
your budget and time line
value of comparable homes in the neighborhood
potential target buyers
The art of home staging begins with a 2-hour consultation. Susan walks through your home with the critical eye of a potential home buyer. She proposes design and decorating modifications that are unique to the rooms in your home — beginning to transform your living space into a highly desirable entity.
Following the initial consultation, you will know exactly what it will take to prepare your home for its next owner. You then decide how much of the work you want Susan to handle and what you’d like to do yourself.
AtWell Staged Home Success Stories
Condo – vacant and sitting on the market for 5 months – sold just one week after staging was completed. A team effort by the homeowners, who implemented cost effective recommendations and AtWell Staged Home, who decorated this unit to sell.
House lingered on the market for 9 months as the real estate market transitioned from a seller’s to a buyer’s market. For less than 1% of the list price, Susan modernized every aspect of a 40-year-old home being sold by the original owner. After staging, it sold in just 2 months for $535K (only $5K under asking) with 3 offers and the beginnings of a bidding war.
Condo listed for $185K, received 3 offers from $185K to $192K, and sold in the first week. As a product of Susan’s staging, the first impression from all buyers was that the condo was unique and stood out from the other units with identical floor plans.

What Others Say About AtWell Staged Home
“Susan provided my home with a fresh look and perspective on how the house should appear to make it attractive to potential buyers. Her plan was well designed and executed with ease and minimal expense. The outcome was making the house appear more spacious, cheery and bright, with updates that made it more in common with current decorative schemes. Without Susan, my house would still be on the market today.”
Joe M., Bardonia, NY
“I’ve worked with Susan three times – first for a bathroom renovation in my prior home; then to stage that home for sale; and most recently, to decorate and renovate the house I moved into. When I moved here, Susan’s attention to detail made a handyman special into an inviting home that reflected my personality. As for my prior home, Susan’s staging expertise moved that property within the first listing week and at a price higher than asking. You can’t beat those results. I’d recommend Susan to anyone looking to sell or just upgrade their home.”

Occupied Home Staging - Kitchen
Hidden in this kitchen are the features homebuyers’ desire most. Staging reveals all these elements. Paint frames the large bay window, cabinets are polished to show their warmth, and the grout is given a thorough cleaning. This five-bedroom house - previously on the market fourteen months - sells four days after staging is complete.
Vacant Home Staging - Living / Dining Room
Staging with rental furniture and accessories makes this space inviting, comfortable and warm. It is money well spent to help buyers connect emotionally to a home. Homes sell faster when furnished, and this one took just five days.
Long Distance Home Staging - Bathroom
Quick, easy, and inexpensive changes update this bath. All it takes is a stylish light fixture, fresh towels, and a bold arrangement. A stainless-steel soap dispenser even makes the existing faucet appear new. This is what staging is all about – small changes that make a big impact. And this is a unique project, as the consultation takes place by phone, using just the homeowner’s digital photos.
