Do you have trouble visualizing? Stagers don't!

By
Home Stager with Janice Ankrett Home Staging

When you look at a room, do you have trouble visualizing it?

You've been out looking at houses and you are having trouble working out where or if your furnishings will go. You can't see past the seller's decor.

When you see a vacant house, you can't tell if your furniture will fit.

Why not call a Stager to help you? Show them the furniture you will be taking with you. Take them to your top choices and look at the spaces with their eyes.

Stagers can visualize the possibilities of a room. They can talk to you about traffic flow. Tell them about your lifestyle ... what makes you comfortable.

You will come away with a new perspective on each house. It may help you choose between those top two or three houses on your list.

If you are a Realtor and your buyer just can't see the possiblities, why not bring along your Stager to help.

Visualize with your Stager's eyes.

Interesting idea.  I've never been hired to help buyers view properties before.  I don't think the selling agent would be too happy with the idea.  (unless of course the stager thinks their listing is the right choice).  I viewed properties with my son when he was looking and I know there were a few selling agents that didn't appreciate what I had to say and what I pointed out.

Sharon, The seller's agent may not be entirely happy but the buyer's agent would be if you helped their client make a decision. We can only show them how to use the space. The final decision is theirs.

Thanks Shar! As with most of our job it would take tact LOL.

That's great Ty!

Janice--I think this is a fantastic idea.  Buyers can get hung up on the smallest details and if we can help them overcome some of these, wouldn't both agents be delighted?
