It seems as though Staging Consultations are coming back into focus. This is my 6th year of staging and I can truly say that staging consultations for occupied homes were my bread and butter for my first 2 years of staging. My REAs paid for each consult because they wanted each listing to stand out, especially with the occupied homes. Now that shortsales and foreclosures have taken over, our agents just don't have the $$ to pay for them anymore. To walk into a homeowner's house and help them prepare their home for sale is always very rewarding for me. Most of the time, they have no idea HOW to prepare the home.
So what has changed? Well, there are still homeowners who need to sell their home. Better yet... there are homeowners who are preparing now... 6 months to a year ahead of time.
For those of you that have left this part of your service... I say, re-instate it! For those of you who haven't done that yet for your clients... you need to add that to your services.
Here are some recent blogs about staging consultations...
Realtors... do you have an occupied home that could use a consultation? Not a full staging, but just some expert advice on how your clients can prepare their home for sale? Why compete with a bank owned property that has been trashed. Let your occupied listings stand out. Please have a stager near you come and help ALL of you out.
