Staging Risk Management (SRM)
works to provide solutions to risk issues in the real estate staging industry. With its partners, Staging Risk Management (SRM) identifies, analyzes and develops a potential solution to the problems of theft, vandalism, and other losses that can occur when property is staged. We provide a way to manage those potential risks by protecting the stager's cost of doing business due to unforeseen expenses or an increase in direct insurance costs due to submitted claims.
Staging Risk Management (SRM) provides risk management for the seller by covering property that a majority of homeowners insurance doesn't cover,
including when the home is vacant or when the property is owned by someone else.
||Questions and Potential Benefits of utilizing an SRM staging policy;
Is the client responsible for covering losses incurred when a peril occurs?
Don’t assume the homeowners insurance covers property that’s not their own, or that they have vacant home property coverage.
Do you require the client to pay large deductibles if a peril were to occur?
An SRM staging policy provided by Worth Ave Group has only a $500 deductible.
What makes you stand out from your competition?
Create another advantage over your competition by offering this value-added SRM staging policy.
How do these actions affect your relationship with your clients?
Maintain referral relationships with an SRM staging policy, compared to a tense relationship when a peril happens and this policy isn't in effect.
||Home Stagers FYI
• We recently suffered an $18,000 loss due to a burglary. This would have been a great policy to have in place!
• Our staging company suffered a great loss last year when the home was broken into and people trashed it. They spray painted all of the furniture, cut up artwork and pillows and destroyed pretty much everything. I wish we had this policy in place.
• One of our vacant listings was broken into and although my contract states the homeowner is responsible; their homeowners insurance would not cover the loss. I ended up eating the loss so I could maintain a positive relationship with the agent. It would have been great to have a policy like this. Seems like a no-brainer for a homeowner to want to protect themselves.
