I'm really serious about this. We, stagers, know that staged home sell faster and for more money. We can't guarantee a sale. We can make the home look it's best for potential buyers.
Isn't it possible that Realtors should suggest to their clients that they should talk to a stager?
Stagers know how to talk to the sellers about preparing their home for sale. Isn't it better that they prepare their home for sale than take many price reductions?
Everyday I see fliers that come to me saying a house has had a big price reduction and the photos show that the house is really nice. It needs to be professionally prepared. A consultation with us could save them thousands of dollars.
Would you go out to a great restaurant in your jeans and T-Shirt when you know the dress is formal? No, you prepare for it by putting yourself out there as best as you can.
Why don't we do that with the houses that are going on the market?
Staging - is it the fiduciary responsibility of the Realtor? I believe that it's the realtors duty to bring it to the table of seller for them to decide.
