- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Have the exact dollar amount determined after a 1-2 hour Home Consultation (depending on the size of the home).
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I come to the home and do a 2 hour Consultation where I work with the homeowner and we fill out a 24 page staging report. We get as much done as we can within the 2 hours going room by room making suggestions as to what needs to be done in each room to get it ready. We rearrange furniture to show the effect we are looking for to open up the room to show off the architectural features of the room. If the home is dated, we make a list of items to purchase to lighten and brighten, maybe new bedspreads, linens, centerpieces, etc. if the homeowner Is a DYI type, they can do this themselves or they may hire me for an hourly fee to get these items. I have a warehouse full of accessories, lamps, trees, pillows, large art work, etc. to rent from us if you don’t want to purchase them. I then come back and install the purchases and rental accessories and tweak the whole house and take pictures for my website and your realtor. The Staging is done and ready for your Home For Sale sign to go up!
