Home Staging

What is Home Staging?


Home Staging is a proven technique that focuses on presenting an occupied or empty property so that it is sold quicker and at the best possible price. It aims to make a property appeal to the highest number of potential buyers, helping the viewers to envision themselves living at the property and embracing the lifestyle on offer. The home is redefined in a creative way with the use of de-cluttering, present best layout, accessorising; using colour harmony and staging techniques to create space in order to appeal to the viewer and increase the saleability.




Why should I stage an empty home?


It's often believed that empty rooms look bigger, but in fact it's quite the opposite. Empty rooms can actually feel smaller than they are because the buyer cannot imagine the room furnished and how the layout would be, often overwhelming the buyer. Staging an empty home helps to define zones and space for the viewers, as well as appealing to your target buyer.




Isn't home staging expensive?


Home staging costs really vary by each property anywhere from £150 up depending on the scale of work, existing contents and possible increase in value by undertaking the work. As a rule, the absolute maximum cost to stage your property should be no more than 1-2% of the property value. And, a study by rightmove.com shows that staged homes actually sell for a whopping 8% more than those unstaged. All of our quotations are provided as a package price




What is a Home Staging Report?


A Home Staging Report is a comprehensive report whereby we will provide you with detailed recommendations for each room in the property on how to stage to sell your home and what improvements can be made to improve the visual appeal. Some recommended product purchases will also be referenced if required. A Home Staging Report is best if you are wishing to action the suggestions yourself and save on costs. Our Home Staging Report starts at just £150 (max 4 bedrooms) including the initial consultation.




What is your full service package?


If you don't feel comfortable carrying out the recommendations yourself or maybe don't have the time, our full service package does exactly that.
We'll provide a summary of recommendations and costs to implement these along with project management of any tradesmen should they be needed, home staging implementation as well as styling. Essentially, we'll handle everything from start to finish until the job is complete and your staged home is ready to go on the market/be photographed. Each property is quoted for individually as each property's staging needs are so different and varied. Please contact us if you'd like to find out more.




I've tidied my home to sell myself, surely that's enough?


When you've lived in your home for a period of time, it can be difficult to notice or see where things can be improved or changed with an impartial eye because that's how you like your home. However, as everyone is different and we all have different tastes, a Home Stager can advise on the changes that can make all the difference to visual appeal and saleability that you may not have thought of. If your home has been on the market and has had little interest or no offers, we'll be happy to discuss how we can help




Why should I stage my property?

  • Thinking of going on the market and would like to get the best possible price for their property and stand out from the competition
  • House is on the market and has had very little interest, no offers or very reduced offers
  • Estate agent would like to reduce the asking price
