I'm not sure if this falls under staging, but I'd like tips on ways to reduce clutter and keep the home that way.

I have this discussion with most of my home sellers so I will sign up.  The issues that I see are clutter, outdated decor and no matter what the price point the sellers don't or don't want to see the value in staging.  What's the best way to present that message to them without insulting?  

Also, many home sellers think that staging is a fee that the listing agent must pay and I don't agree.   Give us some talking points on this.  

Looking forward to hearing what you have to say.

The real challenge is dealing with sellers who are still living in the home that is for sale.  They tend to be very attached to their stuff (what we call clutter and old lady furniture).  Encouragement with a how to get rid of clutter would be terrific.

That sounds really interesting Tori. I have sellers that have limited funds, say $1000. What can they do to maximize the staging value of these funds?
