The most common outside services a Home Stager needs to provide or recommend, aside from doing the actual rearranging of furniture and accessories are:
- rental furniture/art/accessories
- purchasing accessories (bedding, towels, decorative items, flowers)packing supplies
- handyman-type repairs
- packing supplies
- storage facilities
- junk removal
- cleaning (interior, windows, carpets, exterior)
Have you figured out where all these services will come from? If not, this is a great activity to do during slow periods, as it will increase your business over time.
Many home staging projects have to be done under VERY tight timelines. Knowing who you can call for help before you need it will significantly reduce your own stress level when you’re trying to get a house picture–perfect in record time.
Being seen by clients to have a team behind you will also enhance your reputation, boost your credibility with clients; and let’s face it, superior client service will boost your profits!
