is not move-in ready for potential buyers, they
will move on to the one that doesn't come with a

a home in its best possible way, is mandatory
in today's market and will make the difference

Staging improves your efficiency, which
leads to more listings

Your seller will appreciate you contacting
them and your effort to improve the home's chances
of selling. In fact, a home staged by an ASP will
generate new, excited buyers and increase traffic
into your listing. The result will be quicker
sales, more enthusiastic buyers, happier sellers,
higher closing prices, and ultimately, greater
commissions for you! It's a win-win situation
for everyone involved.

Sellers can sometimes be hypersensitive
when you are suggesting how they should present
the home they have loved for a long time. Stagers
take that awkward discussion "off your plate"
and present their ideas as an objective professional
backed by marketing data. ASP's have the tact,
sensitivity, and persuasive abilities to gain
the sellers cooperation.
Staging keeps the deal moving forward
Staging makes sure that minor repairs
are already done. This makes inspections less
stressful and minimizes surprises that could kill
a deal. In addition, when the home is staged,
the appraisals come back higher and the bank approves
the financing faster.
