FAQ #5 What if I don't like your Staging...  Can I get my money back?

This is not a question I've heard frequently but it was a question once asked really made me think.  Honestly I was so surprised to hear this question that I really didn't know how to respond.  But as I thought about it I came to the conclusion that in reality I am not staging for one single person, not for the homeowner's taste or even the Realtor's taste...  I am staging each home I stage for as many potential buyers as possible.  To make the most impact to the broadest amount of people.

So my response is now, if asked this question again: "You are hiring a trained staging professional, one who has your best interest at heart".  I'm staging your home for the type and style that it is, for the area that you live in and to the potential buyer that would be interest in your home.  I have the same goal as you do....  that your home will sell in the fastest amount of time for the most money!  Take the time to preview our website and see other homes that we have staged and please read our staging statistics.  We want you to be confident with our staging abilities and have no question in your mind that you have chosen the right staging company that will do the best job presenting your home for sale!

This is a home that we staged...  Not only did the client purchase the house they bought our entire inventory in it!  We at With Divine Style create a lifestyle that makes a connection with the buyers!

  Can Potential Buyers see themselves living in your home?

You never get a second chance...   to make a Great First Impression!

Linda, I love the suggestion to check Stager's website so the buyer would be comfortable with the work. And you are so right we are not staging for the homeowner. You are doing wonderful job my friend... no wonder that the buyer wanted not only the house but everything in it.

Good response for this question.  I bet they do not ask for their doctor or lawyer for a refund if they are not happy with the service.

Have an outstanding week with your camera in hand.

Linda, what a great response! I tell people that as much as they loved their house they're selling it now and we need to make it desirable for buyers. If you really don't like it, once the house has been sold and conditions removed you can change it back. I've never had that happen, but what a thought provoking question... That's an incredible compliment about the inventory buy! Just like a show home I guess! I always wonder what the people do with their old stuff if they buy everything in the house...

Linda that is just fantastic!  The buyers of this home obviously fell in love not only with the house itself, but how you presented it as a "home."  Job well done!
