When it’s time to stage a home for sale, the goal of a real-estate stager is always to sell a home quickly for the best possible price.
Can Feng Shui help a stager achieve this well-defined goal?
But the partnership between a Feng Shui consultant and stager will go much more smoothly when both experts recognize the sometimes-clashing nature of their work.
Discussing differences up front helps the work go more smoothly and makes their mutual client — the home seller — the winner in the end.
This article is the first in my new three-part series on Feng Shui and Real-Estate sales in which I outline the key differences in approach between staging and Feng Shui.
Please let me know if you have specific questions about it. It’s a huge topic and I am definitely not a real-estate staging expert 😉
Difference #1: The importance of Intention.
Feng Shui approach: In Feng Shui, Intention is everything. The goal is to activate your most cherished goals by enhancing your space with Feng Shui adjustments.
Real-Estate Staging approach: The only Intention that matters in staging is that the home sell quickly and at a high price.
Mutual solution: Working with the home’s sellers, the Feng Shui consultant can ask them to write their Intentions about selling their home down on a beautiful piece of paper.
Some Intentions that the home-owner may want to include:
- Their ideal sale price,
- Their wishes for the new owners’ happiness in the home,
- Their own hopes and dreams about the home they are moving on to.
- And more, as the ideas begin to flow.
Working with the stager, carefully place this piece of paper in the “Seller” area of the property (as found on the Real Estate Staging Bagua Map) so that it can activate everyone’s mutual goals.
