I don't think people realize just what it takes to stage a property. Let me PERSONALLY tell you it is NOT for the meek and mild.
My associates and I have been on the RUN trying to get various properties unstaged and then new properties staged!
To do this right, you need to be a bit of Mack the Mover, Hazel the Cleaning Lady, Dolly the Decorator... all wrapped in one. Then on top of it all... you have to do it like Speedy Gonzoles. (So why am I so fat? LOL)
Anyway, we just created a new position, one person just to handle coordinating all the logistics involved with preparing a property for its sale.
Why (and more importanly HOW) any realtor adds this as a courtesy to what I know are already VERY busy schedules... is beyond me.
Back to work... Craig
