What to Look For in a Staging Company Who is Helping You With Your Open House

Home Stagers are those persons who help prepare homes that are for sale. Since there are so many of these professionals available today, it is essential that real estate agents select one carefully. The following questions are some of the most essential things that agents should consider before selecting a Home Stager.

1. Does the Home Stager have formal training and licensing? Some Home Stagers may not have formal training; thus, if you are looking for one who does have training and is licensed, it is best to ask for proof in the form of certificates, accreditation and/or a license.

2. Does the Home Stager Have Insurance? All Home Stagers should have insurance. When asking if they possess coverage, make sure you see a copy of their policy, and verify that they have liability coverage in addition to coverage for their own items, as well.

3. How much will it cost? Cheapest does not always necessarily mean best; however, you will want to find out what their price ranges are, and how much they will charge for the home you are selling. Agents should also decide if the seller is to pay these costs, or if they are willing to include the costs in a special package for their services to the seller.

4. How much experience does the Home Stager possess? Ask the Stagers how long they have been in the business, and ask for examples of their work, as well as, a few references. While a beginning Stager may do excellent work on small homes, you may want an experienced professional for a larger home.

These are just a few of the top questions you should ask before selecting a Home Stager. Some other questions you may want to consider is what organizations does the Home Stager belong to, and what other services will the Stager provide. It is also essential to find a Home Stager who is easy to work with and is professional, as well. When agents follow these useful tips, they are sure to find a professional who will help them prepare their property for a quick sale.
