But first a brief summary as to what Home Staging is…
To many people, particularly those of us who live in the UK, Home Staging is a relatively new concept, & you wouldn’t be alone if you hadn’t heard of the expression before!
Surprisingly, Home Staging has been around for years in many other countries around the world including the USA, Australia and Spain. It is factored in as part of the cost of selling and is seen as an essential marketing tool prior to marketing property.
Home Staging is about…
preparing your property for sale or rent to make it appeal to the highest number of people. Home Staging focuses on a number of elements which help potential buyers / tenants to be able to visualise themselves living in that space, making it more attractive & desirable. It helps to address any underlying issues that might put potential interested parties off by focusing on overall presentation and target market, any necessary maintenance & repairs, neutralising, decluttering & depersonalising the space, creating balance & flow, highlighting features & focal points, & creating a welcoming environment. It focuses on the property as a whole, both inside & out, helps to increase it’s market presence, & therefore interest.
Home Staging really does work…
& not surprisingly the time, energy & money invested in the service more than pays off by ensuring properties spend less time on the market & achieve the best possible price, avoiding unwanted price reductions or a property being stuck on the market without a sale which can prove costly. This also benefits landlords by potentially increasing occupany on rentals. Home Staging is therefore seen as an investment rather than a cost, & explains why so many property owners simply wouldn’t consider marketing their property without putting in the necessary preparation first!
Professional Home Stagers are trained, experienced & knowledgeable in this field & can provide invaluable advice & services to help property owners to achieve their property goals.
Staged properties sell quicker & achieve their best possible price compared to non-Staged properties
