To Stage or not to Stage

By
Real Estate Agent with twin city realty llc
As a real estate agent, we know that staging listings will result in a faster and more profitable sale, but who can we trust to manage this important process for our client.  Some staging companies are charging hundreds of dollars a month to provide service to your client.  Is is worth it?

Hi Stacy!  As for me, I plan on taking the home staging course myself and be able to assist my clients as an additional perk for them.  It is so important since de-cluttering and de-personalizing their homes do help them appear more spacious and neutral.  Buyers can picture themselves in the home, hopefully.  I think it is a really neat concept.  I'm looking forward to exploring it myself.  Good luck!

I believe I too would benefit from a Home Staging Course like Nadine Mentioned...that is a super idea!

I believe Home Staging is one great way to set yourself from the competition!  GREAT BLOG!

I'm asking myself the same question. I know it results in a quick sale and usually a higher price but it sometimes cost a fortune to a larger home staged!

welcome to Active Rain!  I used to go back and forth on home stagers as well, but now that I have found one that kicks butt, all my listings get staged.  I think it is worth it all the way.
