Choosing the right home staging services to partner with can have a significant impact on your bottom line. Savvy real estate agents who select creative partners with solid reputations can sell more houses faster, more efficiently, and for a greater price. As with all business decisions, you will want to carefully consider the following factors before making a decision.
Background & Reputation
Start by examining their background. Do they have experience in interior design? Are they former real estate agents? Finding out what they bring to the table can help you determine if they have what it takes to make your listings look their absolute best.
Naturally, you will also want to review the company’s reputation. Asking for references from other real estate agents and home sellers is a step that can help you narrow down your search. It’s not a step you want to skip.
Homes come in all shapes, sizes, and styles. The home staging services you partner with should have experience working with the types of homes that make up the majority of your listings. Whether you are selling Craftsman’s, Art Deco’s, or Georgian Colonial’s. be sure that your partner knows how to use the architectural elements to make these properties look their best so that they match the expectations of prospective buyers of those types of properties.
When considering home staging services, ask to see examples of the scenes they have designed. Look for their use of colors, the way they maximize lighting, how they position furniture to create a strong sense of space, and all the little details they tend to. Visual examples give you a good idea of their thought process and their effectiveness at creating scenes that resonate with prospective buyers. The stronger their knowledge of design principles and possibilities, the more appealing your listings will be in the eyes of prospective home buyers.
Work Ethic & Work Style
Everyone has their own way of getting the job done. You will want to choose a partner who has a work ethic and work style that you can work with. This can help minimize conflict and reduce stress as you wait for them to complete the job. The closer their work ethic and work style matches your own, the more efficient and effective the partnership will be. This translates to increased sales and greater profits for everyone.
Most importantly, you will want to make sure that the home staging service has the ability to complete the volume of work you expect to send their way. This is crucial as you don’t want to end up in a situation where the service is so backed up that you can’t get your listings out there on your schedule.
The Brass Tacks
Home staging services can cost anywhere from a few hundred dollars all the way up to thousands of dollars depending on the services required and the size of the home. You will want to drill deep into the pricing of their services and what you can expect to pay for the services you typically need. Many real estate agents are able to negotiate a lower rate for these services due to the volume of business they are able to generate for the home staging service itself.
