Isn't home staging really expensive?

For the small price of an initial consultation you'll discover so many things you can do to your home where the costs are minimal - decluttering, cleaning, repairing, pressure washing. Even storage solutions and accessories to enhance your home can be inexpensive if you know where to look. The aim is to enhance your home at minimal cost. How far you wish to take it is entirely up to you. There is no obligation to start redecorating and buying new furniture but if your budget allows and it would be beneficial this is an option you can explore.

I can clean and declutter. Why do I need a home stager?

It's incredibly difficult to view your own home with the eyes of a highly critical buyer. We can objectively assess how best to use what you already have and determine if anything else needs to be added. You're emotionally involved in your home and the contents so it's hard to be completely objective. Have you stopped noticing that ugly wallpaper in the bedroom? We will look at your home with a designer's eye, going beyond cleaning and decluttering and into decorating and rearranging furniture, pictures and accessories.


Will staging my home mean I get a better selling price?

Home staging is definitely an investment in getting a better return when you sell your home. For most people their home is the single largest asset they have and it needs to be sold making it look as appealing as possible. If you were selling your car, you would get it valeted first. If you were listing something on Ebay you would make sure your photo was good. Home staging is the same. If you improve the way something looks, it becomes more appealing and therefore more valuable.

How much notice do you need to book to assist us with our house move?

We can get quite busy at certain times of the year and planning for a house move does require a little time, so we ask for as much notice as possible. The ideal time to call us is as soon as you put your home on the market, don’t forget we can also help to stage it to help it sell faster (and potentially for more money!) If you are thinking of selling your home, call us today to see how we can help!
