Do you have questions about home staging or property presentation services? I've found that a lot of people do not know what a home stager does or how they can help a home seller. So, here are some of the most commonly asked questions that will shed some light on what home stagers can offer you if you have decided to sell your home:
Q. What is home staging?
A. Home staging is a way of showing a house in the best possible light to prospective buyers in order to sell the property faster and for a better price. Home staging usually involves reducing and reorganizing a clients' belongings, rearranging their furniture and accessorizing the home. The home stager's objective is to transform the property so that it appeals to the widest range of prospective buyers.
Q. Is there any difference between a home stager and an interior designer?
A. Although these professions seem to have similarities, they in reality are worlds apart. An interior designer’s role is to make your home in your style, tastes and preferences. A home stager actually aims to turn your property into something that a majority of people will prefer in order for it to appeal to the maximum number of buyers at sale time.
Q. Will furnishing my vacant property actually make a difference to the buyer?
A. Yes, but just placing any old furniture in the room is not the answer. We can use furniture that enhances the property and shows the property like a "model home" and clearly defines the room purpose. We then style the room to give it a finished and complete look.
We will use quality furniture and accessories that give your vacant property the greatest chance of appealing to the widest possible buying audience.
Q. Does home staging work?
A. Quite simply, yes! Nothing appeals more to a buyer than a clean and defined space without all the clutter and personal effects of the current owner. This helps the potential buyer envision themselves living in the property and leads to a faster sale and often for more money.
Q. How much will it cost?
A. The aim of home staging is not to cost you money, but to make you money through better presentation -- which increases the demand for your home. The cost will depend upon the condition of your home and how much needs to be done to transform the property to appeal to the widest range of buyers.
