Stagers sign on the dotted line


  • Christine Rae 5 years ago

    I agree and in the CSP class we teach stagers that contracts are essential. I have had stagers in my class who say after even after being in business for 6+yrs; they value what they learned. A contract which is well written, concise and clear helps a stagers' professionalism in the eyes of agent and seller.

    This is a hot topic for sure Karen & RESA Dallas Chapter learned a lot we appreciated Steve's insight. For me it's a no brainer & as stated in your article and by Steve, you can be sued. If a client balks at your contract then I'd be hesitant to ever move forward - that right there would give me pause to think about their mindset. A contract protects BOTH you and the client. It's well worth the investment in having one. It gives everyone peace of mind.

    Well said Karen. Whether or it will be needed, a staging contract provides peace of mind - for both parties - that you have set the stage (pun intended) for how you and the omeowner will work together, what is expected, what will be delivered, terms, pricing, timing, etc. This eliminates confusion and prevents future misunderstandings, allowing you both to focus on what's most importnat, getting the home sold.

    I am a firm believer in having a contract between my company and my client. It not only protects you in a lawsuit, but also clearly outlines your services and fees so there is no doubt in the client's mind. It should contain other provisions too numerous to state here, but one that is also important in my contract is that I am not responsible for third parties such as furniture rental companies, painters etc. and that the client enters into agreements with them directly. I am only there to ASSIST the client in the management of these entities.

    As a home stager I provide a contract or letter of agreement for all projects (big and small) so that the home seller knows exactly what to expect.

    Informational at best. I am new to the practice of actually "hiring" a stager. Didn't really know what one was until a friend of mine became a stager years ago. It is an interesting line of work. I liken it a "different set of eyeballs" to look over your home and recommend what works. Its not for the light-hearted or the overly emotional. You have to detach from the start and just roll with it.
    As for the contracts, I am married to an attorney. Of course I believe everything should be in writing. Way to go Karen. Nice article.
