I have just started staging a home that has been for sale since October, the asking price is $550,000 and it is somewhat dated. The broker has generously offered the home owner four hours worth of Home Staging time that would be compensated for at the closing. The seller paid me for my time, and then the broker will reimburse her once the house closes.
Once I started, the home owner realized what a big difference it is making and has already had me work for 8 hrs, ( she paid me for the extra 4 hours) plus we're going this week to pick out light fixtures, kitchen cabinet hardware, and paint colors. It is a win-win situation for the realtor and home owner. If for some reason the home would not sell in the contracted time period, the seller would be more likely to re-list with that realtor in order to be compensated for the Home Staging.
I'm curious to see if anyone else has been doing this and how is it working?
