Most buyers make a judgement about a property within just 7-10 seconds after arriving at a listing. Staging makes that first impression count.
As a Realtor, you know that sometimes clients are reluctant to take your staging advice. Bringing in an expert third party takes the pressure off you, and offers your clients a premium customer service experience. Just over half of listing agents stage their homes, and it is most common for the agent to cover the cost for their client. It’s a great way to give any property a competitive edge, and becoming more and more common.
I specialize in staging on a budget, using what my clients already have. I will amplify your advice to the sellers, while working from whatever level of willingness the client has to make changes. After a thorough analysis and walkthrough of the home (with the Realtor, sellers or both parties), I will send a staging checklist, organized room-by-room to the client (and Realtor by request) within 24-48 hours.
Additional organizational, decluttering, shopping or decorating services are available if your clients need an extra set of hands, but there is never any pressure to book hourly services, to rent furniture, or anything else. My number one goal is meeting the needs of Realtors and sellers as efficiently as possible, so the house sells quickly and easily.
