Walk and Talk Consultations
RESA Members were asked:
Do you provide Walk and Talk Consultations? 88.73% Yes, 11.27% No.
How often does the agent pay for the Walk and Talk Consultation? 89% of the time.
A Walk and Talk consultation is a verbal consultation in which the stager gives advice to the homeowner and/or listing agent (they take notes) to get the home into market-ready condition. It may include cosmetic fixes, furniture placement, and actual staging advice. The homeowner or agent may then choose to do the work themselves, do some of the work themselves and hire the stager to do a portion of the work, or hire the stager to do everything.
Real Estate stagers were asked what their fee is for a one- to two-hour Walk and Talk Consultation.
