You might be grieving selling your home…

You might be grieving selling your home…

May 7, 2010 By Pres Ⓡ Staging Resource Centre

I recently read an article on The 5 Stages of Grief and how it relates to the process of saying good bye to your home of a few or many years.

I believe most Pres home stagers have faced situations like this and have had to use a lot of psychology and empathy in making their client’s move more palatable. The public doesn’t often realize how much we do care about not only making the property spectacular for selling, but ‘being there’ for our clients.

I often think of Pres Home Stagers as your “Home Selling Coach’ since we work together with you to help you achieve your goals. We listen – we set goals – we take action steps. Many staging jobs can take up to a year depending on what has to be done to make the home marketable. When our clients get stuck well, we encourage them to take small steps and remind them that they can create their next home any way they want!

This photo is me with my client asking him to ‘Tell me about these swords’ and tell me he did. They are his pride and joy and so without a moment’s hesitation I said, “Well then, let’s pack these treasures up and make sure they are safe and sound when you move in to your new home!”
