Choosing and Using Accessories ~NEW WEBINAR~

You already know the right accessories add interest and enhance a property. Less is more but bare is not better. Accessories used correctly create the inviting feel which prompts a buyer to make an offer on a property.

Learn how to avoid the beginner stager frenzy of “decorating-staging”; staging for selling requires a good eye and discipline to hold back your penchant for decor as too much “stuff” interrupts the flow and confuses the buyer. Well-positioned accessories add variety and interest as well as creating flow from room to room.

Join Christine Rae and her guest Co-Host, 8 year CSP Veteran Bonnie Carter and learn how to choose and use the best ones.

Participants will learn:
• How to select the right accessories that can be used over and over again.
• How to create flow using colour and/or theme
• How to use all opportunities to purchase accessories at bargain prices
• How to avoid selecting the wrong accessories
• How to store accessories
• How to use artwork to advantage
