Most people think home staging consultations are just for the homeowner's benefit but Realtors have a lot to gain too. When the homeowner completes the suggested tasks within the consultations, their property will show better, which makes it easier for the Realtor to sell it. This creates a ripple effect; less time on the market, faster

sale, higher sales price, more commission, and more time to find new listings. In addition, if the homeowner does not complete the recommendations and wonders why their property is not selling, the Realtor can go back and review the suggested tasks to reiterate the importance of why they need to follow the advice.

Did you know that the average buyer spends five minutes in a home? Would you believe it if I told you that the same buyer will spend an average of 40 minutes lingering in the same home if it is professionally staged? It's true (per the National Association of Realtors), and studies show that the longer a buyer remains in a home, the more likely they are to make an offer.

What professional home staging can do for you:

Increase your home’s selling price while spending less time on the market. Staged homes spend 88% less time in the market than non-staged homes.
