Cheap, Fast or Good - You Can Pick Only Two!

Written by

If you're familiar with project management, you undoubtedly know about the Project Triangle. It illustrates how for any product or service - timeline, quality and cost are interrelated.


It is very hard, if not impossible, to optimize all three. Something has to give!

  • Looking for a service quickly and inexpensively - you're not going to get high quality.
  • Looking for a high quality service quickly - it will not be cheap.
  • Looking for a high quality service for a low fee - your project will take a long time to complete. (You won't be a priority and will be scheduled behind higher paying customers.)

So, does the saying "cheap, fast or good - you can pick only two" apply to home staging services? Of course it does!   Beware of any company stating that they can provide high quality, quick service for a low rate.

If cheap and fast are your prerogative, the quality of your service will suffer. The old adage stays true - you get what you pay for.
