What is home staging?
The term home staging is interchangeable with property styling and generally speaking is the art of preparing a home for sale, with the aim of:
- appealing to a huge number of buyers
- selling a home swiftly and
- selling for a great price
Home staging isn’t a new concept, but the value in having your home presented in the best possible light during the sales campaign is being recognized by real estate agents, buyers and vendors more and more.
It is always stressed that the first impression is the key factor in selling your home. In fact, Real Estate Agents say that potential buyers are forming an opinion on your property within 10 seconds of walking through the front door.
A professional home stager will work with the ‘flow’ of a home, eliminate clutter, add furniture, remove furniture, rearrange furniture, add soft furnishings and generally make the home more appealing and presentable.
