How Do You Find the Home Stager That is Right For You??
You may live in an area with many Home Stagers to choose from and you just don’t know how to choose. What should you look for and how will you know if they will be a good fit for you to stage your home?
FIRST: Look at the Home Stager’s Qualifications and Experience.
Are they certified? I have been a Certified Home Stager for eight years and am also a Certified Home Stager Pro Trainer for APSD. Your Home Stager should not have received their training from watching HGTV.
Do they belong to Home Staging Organizations and Associations? I am a member of Real Estate Staging Association (RESA) and have a RESA Pro designation which is the highest degree of accountability for a Stager. We are required to pass an Ethics Exam, have certain business credentials and maintain ongoing Continuing Education.
SECOND: Do they have a website with a portfolio showing their work and services?
Rooms With Style’s Home Staging and Redesign website holds a complete portfolio as well as a listing of all the services provided. You will get to know more about me, how I work and what I can do for you.
THIRD: Do you like the person?
That is plain and simple. Many Home Stagers are great in what they do but you need to click with them, like them and trust them. So chat with them on the phone, read the testimonials on their website and ask for a reference.
One of the greatest compliments is when people tell me they loved working with me as I was easy going, gentle in my delivery and made the process fun.
Many people feel nervous having a Home Stager into their home as they feel they will be attacked for what they have done or not done. You should never feel that way! I will need to Stage my own home someday when I go to sell. We all live differently than when we sell. Find a Home Stager that understands that and what your needs are.
Fourth: Do You Need Furniture?
Rooms With Style has a 2500 square foot warehouse filled with furniture and accessories for those of you who have already moved and need to stage a vacant home; or for you Real Estate Investors with rehabbed properties that know vacant homes are difficult to sell. Get them staged with beautiful, cozy decor that will draw the buyer further into the home! Call 952-567-1124 for Furniture Rental Information.
You love your home and you should love your Home Stager.
Shar Sitter at Rooms With Style would love to work with you in getting your home showing to it’s full potential.
