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.
