Think of a Home Stager as Your Good Friend

Blog by Elysse Bulloch | February 24th, 2016

When you are in the process of selling your home, you want to know that you are surrounded by real estate professionals who have your best interests at home Staging calgaryheart. While you might not immediately think of it this way, your home stager can be like a good friend.

Sometimes I say to my property staging clients, “Hate me now, love me later.”

That’s because, similar to what you want in a good friend, as a trained home staging professional in Calgary, I’ll tell it to you straight, with kindness, to give you a fresh perspective on the first impression your home is making before staging.

A home stager will look at your home from the perspective of the potential buyer and point out issues that might cause a buyer to say no, or to make a lowball offer.

If you want to sell faster and for as close to asking price as possible, why would you want your team to sugar coat it? That’s not going to help you reach your goals.

Anyone who has sold a property knows that it’s work. Having a home stager on your team can help you avoid frustration. Similar to a good friend, qualities that I bring to my client relationships include:

  • Integrity – trustworthy, honest, dependable
  • Compassion – empathy, listening, non-judgment
  • Friendliness – self-confidence, positivity, humour

It’s true, you might not like what I have to recommend at first. It will likely mean more work to prepare your house to sell. But you can trust that I will invest in your success like a friend and bring some lightheartedness to the process.

In the end, the results will speak for themselves. You’ll be happy that you reached out.
