Home Staging has emerged as one of the most important and influential components of the selling process that remains within the seller’s control. “Location can’t be changed and price has a range driven by the market, but how the house is viewed is completely up to the seller”, Bird says.
And how the house is viewed directly impacts the sale price. Buyers will pay more for a home that’s move-in ready. They no longer want to tackle the challenges of a fixer-upper, and if they do, it will be reflected in their offer. Buyers are busy and they’re educated. They’re frugal and yet demand more than ever.
So Christine Bird is challenging the realtors themselves to assist home sellers realize their best opportunities for protecting their equity through professional home staging. As a Canadian Certified Staging Professional, she is instructing the North American-wide CSP ELITE AGENT designation at the local-level. Realtors completing the designation will gain a better understanding of home staging and have the tools available to promote it more effectively to their clients.
