It may seem daunting when a home staging expert, who can realistically help a seller, just can't seem to get a seller to help themselves. The return on investment and value proposition is what you should be focused on in these times as sellers often feel powerless in today's market.
Most Home Staging pros want to share their testimonials, success stories, quality of service offerings and other things when selling 'Home Staging' to a client. The simple truth is sellers today aren't interested in understanding your strengths as much as they are interested in knowing if the investment will realistically sell their home.
Focus on what's in it for the seller from his point of view instead of yours. Gather information and solid surveys from helpful tools like HomeGain for example. Todays current market instills fear and concern in the minds of sellers so helping them understand their 'real' potential with home staging will go a long way in getting the job done.
