Staging helps in more ways than just selling a home !!

By
Real Estate Agent with REMAX Diamond Realtors - The Luz Group

As many of my activerain friends do, one of the services that we offer all of the Clients that list their property with our team is a professional staging of their home. We initiated this process with the thought of course to help in the sale of their property.

What I didn't anticipate was the positive impact on potential future clients (listings) that I would meet through Open Houses that we hosted at one of our staged properties. I have had several people who have attended an Open House comment on how great the property looked. And I have now learned to take the opportunity to tell these prospective future clients of this great service we provide to "all" of our listing clients. 

So while professional staging helps in marketing and selling an existing property -- it can also be a marketing item that separates your team from the others in the area and as a result bring you some future listings !!

Great idea, and I can see so many benefits on so many levels.  I have a problem getting sellers to agree to do what's needed.

Ah hah!!! I think you've got it!!!  This is the message stagers everywhere want to get across to Realtors.  And you stumbled on it gracefully and here you are making more money for yourself and your clients with plain good service and forward thinking.  Good post.  I'm telling the stagers on you, they'll be over and commenting in droves.  I just blogged about YOU on the stagers blog Stage it Forward.  They'll be happy to hear of your successes.

Wow, and thank you, thank you!   You've eloquently expressed our message as stagers.   Your sellers will be so impressed that you use staging as part of your services.  You'll get a few successes and watch out, you'll be busier than you know what to do with.  Best wishes to you and your team!  I hope you keep us informed.

Thanks so much for sharing how it has helped your marketing as a whole! Do you find when it's presented to clients as part of the package they are much more receptive? hmm I think this should be featured..

Peter, you've figured out the secret! To succeed in this market you have to distinguish yourself from the droves of other Realtors by offering Home Staging services to your listing clients. Suddenly you are knows as the agent whose listings ALL look great. You will have more clients than you know what to do with! Congratulations!
