Home Staging: The Key to Moving Properties

Posted by: Jessica Gopalakrishnan on June 11th, 2008

Karen Breen Elia of RE/MAX Exclusive Properties in Chicago is the special guest in this month’s “Winning Agent Call” on HomeGain Radio, hosted by Peter McCullough. The topic is home staging.

In Karen’s opinion, home staging is on the rise. “The more successful agents are finding that home staging is the key to moving properties, especially for agents in the more competitive markets,” said Karen.

Listen to Karen Breen Elia’s advice to real estate agents on home staging:

On this call, Karen shares how she provides value to her clients, overcomes objections (like personal tastes), and why it’s important to get “commitment” from clients before she begins working with them.

“Some home sellers don’t understand they are losing money because they choose to not do home staging,” Karen says on the call. “It’s my job as a Realtor to help my clients get the most they can for their home, and that means convincing them to do things like home staging, and then being the liaison between the client and the home stager.”

Excellent overview of how professional home staging works in successful partnership with real estate sales. Only wish you were in the Washington DC Metro area. Would love working with such a savvy Real Estate Agent.
