Hi Tori,
Do you have any statistics on the tangible $$ value and time on market of staged  vs non-staged homes?

Costs, how paid and when. Pros and cons and why. Price ranges recommend for staging. Simple but effective examples of staging at work.

I like Jennifer Mackay 's suggestion, if people thought they could do this inexpensively, whether with a pro or on their own they would be more receptive to it.

Hi Tori- I would show Before and After rooms as well as what Stagers provide outside of "moving furniture around."  And Michael Jacobs stay away from the "D"word or The Force will get you!

Maybe an explanation of the various types of staging, from using the clients own things, to bringing in just a bit to fully furnished.  Sometimes people assume all or nothing.

Terry, unless you are a former TV or radio news person, I'd get more coaching about how to act and speak and dress in front of a camera/microphone.  There is a lot of really awful video that is so bad in presentation that people miss the great content.

Virtual staging is something a few people have inquired about and might help motivate them to consider staging, all other things being equal.

Give examples of how staging a home (that had been on the market for at least a few weeks before it was staged) has helped to sell the home.

For some reason people think they have to remodel their whole house when in fact, it's just some paint & furniture removal. Let's face it - some people don't know how to decorate or they've bought a couch that's too large for a room & just live with it.

You can do it EZ.

I hope it turns out well & you allow us to share it.
