Sheida Rezazadeh,Keller Williams R.E. Services, DRE#0192560
Answer: Always
Explanation: We work with the homeowner all the way through the process. We request that the homeowner be present as we are staging, and there are certain items that we will ask them to move. We do not want to move anyone's electronics like TV's or stereos, and we do not move mirrors.
Constructive Consulting, LLC Home Staging & Redesign
Answer: Always
Explanation: When staging a home, I remind homeowners that we are staging for buyers' tastes, but they ultimately decide their budget and how much or how little they want to do. However, if I'm redesigning rooms for clients who are not moving, their personal preferences are of paramount importance, since they are the ones who will be living in the space. I offer design advice and guidance, but the plan we come up with is always a collaborative effort.
1st Impressions Design
ProMatcher
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.
Dramatix Decor, Inc.
Answer: Always
Explanation: Absolutely! The home seller always has input in the process...even though you are selling it, it's still your home! We want you to be educated on the process every step of the way and understand all of the things that need to be done to get the most return on your investment. But we also understand that this can be a difficult time for many people, so we want to help you be able to detach from it and try to view your home as a product you're selling. We'll be there with you!

A Goode Start Decorating & Home Staging
ProMatcher
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.

First Sight Staging
Answer: In some cases
Explanation: The purpose of having a home staged is to highlight the great features of a home and downplay the not so great features. Also to create emotional connections to make a potential buyer fall in love with the home. A home stager will know how to accomplish this and it may not always be how a homeowner wants to see their home. Taking down family photos is usually not popular with a homeowner, but you want a potential buyer to see themselves in your home and not you.
Decorate and Company
ProMatcher
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.
Dragonfly Home Designs
Answer: In some cases
Explanation: Absolutely! In some cases, the homeowner has fresh ideas to share. In other cases, the homeowner just needs a pair of fresh, objective eyes.

Explanation: Absolutely, we always listen.
josie mosie and company
Answer: Always
Explanation: A stager provides professional advice that, when taken, allows a home to appeal to the greatest number of prospective home buyers. The home seller always has final say as to what projects they would like to take on. However, the more steps they take to prepare their house for the market, the faster they will sell, and for more.

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!

Explanation: The truth is a large number homeowners can not see their home objectively. Home Staging is not decorating for the homeowner, but rather de-personalizing the space to appeal to the largest audience of potential buyers.
