A Realtor, Home Stager and Inspector Walk Into a Bar…

Home Stager with Elite Staging and Redesign, LLC

A Realtor, home stager and Inspector walk into a bar...

They all order a drink. The Realtor says, “Why do I need a home stager?” The NJ home stager says, “Why do homeowners need a Realtor?” The inspector says, “Every home needs an inspection so why the hell am I here?? The Realtor and Stager say, Who invited you?” The inspector bored out of his mind downs another shot and calls an Uber.   

The Realtor and Stager drink their Margaritas. The Realtor goes on to say, “Every buyer needs professional guidance navigating the turbulent waters of selling. We provide everything from listing the house at the right price, a professional MLS presentation, our pool of potential buyers and negotiating the best price for our client.”  

They order another drink.

The stager replies, “We are the experts on beautifully staging homes to target your buyer demographic and appeal to the widest range of buyers. This translate to better MLS photos and more foot traffic for a faster sale at the optimal price." 

They order another drink and are feeling no pain.

The Realtor comments, "I see how your NJ home staging services can help my client and take the burden off of me delivering the laundry list of projects they need to complete before their home hits the market.  

The stager says, "And you help me by introducing your clients to me, creating more staging opportunities. Everybody wins!"

They order a shot of Tequila and toast to teamwork.  

They stagger out of the bar, exclaiming, “I love you, man!”

Your catchy headline caused me to 'click' on the post. Well written. A team approach to get a house sold always makes sense.

Kristine, congrats on your featured post!   Margaritas are a great choice to discuss any topic.  I've been known to help make vacant houses sparkle.  I am the Windex and paper towel queen.  There are some local furniture stores that have staged esp new construction houses. They leave the price tags on the furnishings in case the new buyer wants to purchase them.

This was a fun post - there is a need for both realtors and stagers (and inspectors too). That sounds like it would have been a memorable evening!

Oh my. With that mix of alcohol, those two had to wake up with a BAD hangover the next morning.

From everything I read, I've decided that staging is absolutely essential. However, it appears that I'm the only one in our area who thinks so. I tried finding a stager who works around here and came up with zero.

Meanwhile, I've seen some listing photos that made me cringe. Oh please - somebody tell those sellers to do the dishes and pick the dirty clothes off the floors before you let your agent snap those pictures!

Neat fable.  I think everybody wins when the right professional is on the job.  Any job.

Most people don't realize how good or bad their interiors have devolved to...  Every little knick knack and piece of furniture that has been stuffed into a room may personalize it for the owner but does not bode well for a buyer with a completely different world view!  Thus the Stager must intercede...

How fun to see you in AR again. You've been missed. Cute story, and so true. Although, me thinks the realtor and the stager need to limit their alcohol intake. Lol.
