McAtee Staging & Redesign
Answer: Always
Explanation: The homeowner always has direct input in the staging and design project and we take our cues from you. You, the seller, set the boundaries. If there is something that you are emotionally connected to and you really think it should stay in the home, we will share our recommendations and reasons with you but ultimately our goal is that you the client are happy with your staged home and that it appeals to as many buyers as possible.

Answer: Always
Explanation: Absolutely! The home seller always has input in the process...even though you are selling it, it's still your home!

Seneca Home Staging
Answer: Rarely
Explanation: I am a trained professional and know what today's buyers are looking for. Staging is so different from redesign, so I usually do not ask for the homeowners input. I will however get the homeowners consent on moving or removing certain items in the home or if it is okay to add nail holes to hang updated art.

Simply Divine Staging & Design
Answer: Always
Explanation: During the consultation we always ask the homeowner their thoughts especially on pieces of furniture, if there is something that you have to have in a certain room then we will work with it. The actual design process is slightly different as we are looking to optimize the home's potential for buyers not necessarily for the best living practice. We may move some pieces to make the focal points stand out more but we always explain to the homeowners why we are doing that.
Perfect Match Homes
Answer: Always
Explanation: As a stager, I want the homeowner to offer their opinion, but I also hope they understand that it is our expertise and we will offer insight, but we do not force anyone to do what we say.

Restyled by Rita
Answer: Rarely
Explanation: We are highly trained professionals, and choose our furnishings and accessories very carefully so that they appeal to the target market. Occasionally we have changed things out, but it does state in our contract that we have the last say in the design. If it is a consultation, we'll listen to the owner and sometimes they give us a good reason to try something different. Two heads are always better than one!
