Hello Christine,

I am a real estate agent of many years. Staging is not established in our area, meaning not many people know about it here, agents are not using it or doing it, and as far as I know we don’t have any stagers. I myself am intrigued with the process. (Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks?) how can I learn more about it and what is the major benefit to me?

Hey Dolores,

Good for you wanting to know more about the single most important service a seller can use to maximize their equity return when selling property. In every market, someone must be first. Now that your awareness is piqued, you’ll be amazed how quickly you start seeing staging more and more. The service growth is driven via buyer demand for move-in-ready property; buyers want their dream house without the work, and seven out of ten will happily pay more money for it! The key to success is having the three-step staging process completed before you start any marketing! What’s in it for you is simple: fabulous photos, maximum impact for showings, and fewer days on the market, which means speedier sales and an outstanding boost to your reputation as being the agent who gets property SOLD. If you are serious about knowing more, check the agent training at www.stagingtraining.com/csp-elite. We can also help you find a stager near you!
