When would you ideally want to be brought into the process—after we list the home for sale or before?

A professional stager should be brought in as early as possible, before the homeowner has engaged a Realtor is best, but certainly before the marketing pictures are taken. Fantastic online pictures that highlight the key selling points of a home may be your only opportunity to hook prospective home buyers into scheduling a tour of your house. If you list before staging, you may find yourself at a disadvantage since several buyers and their real estate agents will see the un-staged property and form an unfavorable impression.
