Today’s buyers’ expectations are high- they want homes that feel clean, spacious, look great and are move in ready. Online listing photos are your buyers’ first impression and are all important for getting prospects in to see the home. Photos of dreary, cluttered or empty spaces will cause them to simply pass and go on to the next property.
Spaces Streamlined’s professional Remote Market Ready Staging Consultation Service is designed to help your home sellers prepare their home for compelling photos and successful marketing. We recommend incorporating this consultation into your standard listing package for owner occupied homes to ensure a show ready home as well as offer your clients a value added service that will give you an advantage over other agents in your area.
How We Work With Your Seller
Please have your seller schedule their call through the gold Schedule a Consultation button following the service description on our Services page.
They'll receive a confirmation email with instructions for our call, how to provide us with photos of their home and a link to an easy questionnaire we request they fill out right away so that we can do some advance planning for their space prior to our consultation.
The day of our scheduled call we’ll consult with them through Zoom video conferencing or by phone, providing them with practical recommendations for staging their home by editing, rearranging and refreshing each room, concentrating on highlighting the positives while making the most of what they already have to maximize it’s selling potential.
• Cost-effective cleaning, repairs and improvements
• Editing excess furnishings and possessions

• Purchasing a few key items for updating the look of their home inexpensively
• Tips for styling each space for gorgeous marketing photos
Within three days following our consultation they will receive a color, printable detailed room by room Market Ready DIY Staging Plan (see sample report) that will help them organize their time and tasks while they prepare their home for beautiful listing photos and showings. Includes bonus sheets with cleaning tips, preparing for an open house and showings checklists, staging accessories shopping and resources lists and more.
Incorporating a home staging consulation in your listing package gives you a huge competitive advantage over the average real estate agent! Imagine letting potential buyers know you hire a staging professional as part of your listing package. Many times home sellers contact us before getting an agent, so the Realtor Partnership is reciprocal.
Sell Listings Faster
Statistically, homes prepared for the market sell much faster and for more money than homes marketed in their as-is condition.
Make more money
Home staging is pure economics. When you improve upon a product, you increase the demand thus raise the price. Buyers pay more money for a home that's move in ready- resulting in better commissions for you, as well.
In a referral-based industry, happy clients mean more listings and the reward of a job well done.
Greatly Improved Marketing
The money you spend on marketing the home on the outside will be twice as effective when you have photos of beautifully staged rooms. With over 90% of home buyers searching the Internet first, it’s critical that your home marketing photos be outstanding and have impact.
Gives You Credibility
When you bring in “experts” who do this for a living it adds to your own credibility. When you’re focused on your own field of interest and outsource to professionals it gives you added credibility in what you’re good at – selling homes!
Protects Your Relationship
Home staging is a form of constructive criticism that sometimes addresses hard issues that you may find difficult to discuss with your sellers. We are trained in wording and handling these issues with delicacy, in fact, our consultation process is built around helping your clients disassociate from their home and see it through buyers' eyes.
Gives You Industry Status
According the NAR, Realtors are more likely to take their clients to homes that have been staged rather than not. When you have a reputation for listing move-in ready homes marketed specifically to buyers, agents will want to show them!
Gives You More Control
A certain dollar amount for a home may be desired but know that unless some changes are made, the client won’t get it. By introducing a staging consultation, you greatly increase the chances of a maximum dollar sale.
Home Staging is a Valuable Investment
Incorporating a staging consultation into your listing package results in the client doing more to make their home desirable which means greater returns and a faster sale. Once they have their action plan in hand, they are motivated to do what’s necessary and prepare their home for marketing.
We truly look forward to partnering with you. Let’s work together and help our sellers
successfully market their homes, sell them faster and for top dollar.
