Answer: Not sure
Explanation: If homeowners know their house needs some work before going on the market, they may want to hire the stager ahead of time, especially if more extensive work is needed (paint, flooring, light fixtures, etc). However, if they're not sure whether or not their home is "market-ready", I would advise hiring a realtor first. Realtors also know what buyers are looking for, and they may already have a home stager that they know and trust to do a great job for their clients.
