Home Preview and Consultation

First, before design brainstorms and detailed mood boards, an expert home stager meets with the real estate agent or home-seller (if the house is marketed FSBO). Here, the home staging professional discusses budget, property specifics (such as size and number of rooms to be staged), and exchanges neighborhood expertise and tips. This may be things like potential home-buyer demographics. Read more about the initial home preview from White Orchid Interiors team member, Marisa Harris.
