Staging is a marketing tool make your home standout from the competition.

Staged homes are clean, decluttered, and arranged to appeal to buyers!

As a For Sale By Owner, you may be used to doing things yourself and that is exactly why you need a staging consultation.  A staging consultation completed by a professional home stager will provide you with a step-by step checklist for preparing your home for sale.

Each area of the home, each room of the home including both interior and exterior will be addressed for minor repairs to be completed, any needed sprucing up, and arrangement of interior furnishings and decor.

Once the staging consultation is in your hands, then all you do is go down the list and check each item off when completed.

As the home owner, it is always YOUR decision how to prepare your home for sale.  The professional home stager is an expert in how to make homes ready that appeal to buyers.

A home stager can recommend paint colors, art placement, lighting styles, furnishings arrangments, even curb appeal updates.

The staging consultation is an action plan for success.  The first staging consultation I ever completed was for a FSB0.  Before the paint was even dry, this owner got a knock at the door inquiring if the house was for sale because the prospective buyers  HAD SEEN fix up  being done.  This person became the buyer.  The FSBO seller sold their home by first getting a staging consultation and taking action.

Just got my certification as a Home Marketing Specialist - today. I took the class via Martha Webb. Loved it. I think all the points you make are very valid. What a significant change this can make to a listing.

Ellie, Congratualations on your certification has a Home marketing specialist.  I started staging homes when I was at Coldwell Banker and liked it so much, staging is now my specialty in Abilene.  I have staged and sold about 25 homes so far for other Realtors and my own listings.

I love active rain because there is so much information available. There are some great stagers who do a fantastic job who post here as well.  Be sure and check out www.stagedhomes.com for your area for staged homes, too.

FSBO's need a staging consultation more than anyone! Well said! And if they were smart - they'd list with an agent too!

Beverly ~ FSBO sellers as well as those listing with an agent could benefit from a home staging consultation  :-)  As you said, many sellers don't know how to assess their own home because they're too close to it and see it every day.  My clients love the advice they receive during a consultation and often tell me it's the best money they spent on preparing their home for sale.
