As a current 'homeowner' looking at the possibility of marketing your home for sale within the next year, what are your thoughts on home-staging prior to marketing? How much do you know about the home-staging process? And, do you think you would be more likely to work with an agent who offered this as part of their services, or not?

I'm a Realtor who also does staging for my clients. I think it's more affordable. If I get a listing there is no charge. If a home owner wishes to use my services after listing with another agent then there is a fee for services rendered. Your agent will give you good advice on staging your home it's up to you if you are open to suggestions or not.
Remember... that when it comes time to sell your home, first impressions do count. Showing a buyer what they want to see, is ultimately creating your own opportunity for success. Staging your home before it goes on the market creates the ultimate win-win situation for all involved.
Home staging is worth it. But don't forget that a photo is worth a thousand words. We all know that most everyone shops on line these days. So you have to make sure your photos are in tip top shape! If you feel the pictures are not doing your home justice, have your realtor start over. Re-stage it, whether you use your own furniture, borrow rent or stage it online. A great online staging company is OBEO.com. That way your home photos look great, making people want to look at your property. If you have to move or remove some furniture so be it. At least you got them to your property which is the first major hurdle.
I had a client that was selling an empty home. I suggested staging it. She did not want to bother with it and did not believe in it. I showed her to new homes form the same builder side by side with the same layout. One was decorated and one was empty. She immediately stated she liked the staged one much more. When I explained to her they were the same house she had to go back in to prove it to herself. We staged her empty home and it sold in a few days after it sat for 2 months empty.
