FAQs about Home Staging Consultations in Syracuse
More and more real estate agents and home sellers in Syracuse are seeking out the assistance of a professional home stager to increase the liklihood of a quick and more profitable sale. For those who are still on the fence about hiring a stager, here are some answers to some questions you may have.
Q: What will happen during the home staging consultation?
A: The home stager will typically begin with a discussion of your goals and expectations, and explain the staging process. He or she will then want to walk through the entire home with you gathering first impressions and taking notes, and possibly giving you a quick demonstration.
Q: How long will the consultation take?
A: For a consultation alone, when no actual staging is being done, you should expect the home stager to spend an hour or two in the home.
Q: Will I have to pay for the consultation?
A: Many real estate agents offer a home staging consultation in their listing package. If that is the case, then the agent pays for it per their agreement with the home staging company, otherwise, the homeowner pays for the consultation.
Q: What if I am not able or willing to carry out the home stager's recommendations?
A: What you do after the consultation is up to you, but if you are not able to carry out what is recommended because of any limitations you may have, or you need assistance, then you should let the home stager know. He or she will likely offer a solution. The home stager will make recommendations based on your home's attributes, marketability, as well as many other factors unique to your home and its potential buyers, and will work with you to achieve your goals.
Q: How do I choose a home stager?
A: Ask your agent or someone you know who has recently sold a home for a recommendation. You may also want to use online resources such as Real Estate Staging Association or Home Staging Resource. In the Syracuse area, give Seneca Home Staging a call!
