So, you’ve made that momentous decision to move, you are excited and want to get cracking. You are keen to ensure that your property sells quickly and for the best possible price. This is where home staging comes in and here are probably the three most frequently asked questions.

1. What Exactly is Home Staging?

Home staging is the presentation of your property for sale so that it attracts viewings, leading to offers and ultimately a sale. Selling your house is a competitive business and you want your property to stand out from the crowd. Most buyers commence their property search online which means that your photos need to be of high quality and the subject matter i.e. what is shown in those photos, needs to look good. If the lead shot isn’t appealing, potential buyers won’t click through and if the remaining photos don’t look attractive they won’t bother viewing. Home staging involves considering issues such as repairs, decor, clutter and purpose, plus that all important kerb appeal.

2. What Are The Benefits?

Home staging will encourage potential buyers to view and those viewers will have a good experience when they view. People who view will want to offer and are more likely to offer an acceptable figure. It’s all about getting you the best price in the shortest possible time. Ultimately, the aim is that it will reduce the length of time your property is on the market and enable you you make that all important move.

3. How Much Does It Cost?

I know this is very important. There is no hard and fast rule, it depends on what actions are required. It isn’t about spending a lot of money, the starting point is working with what you already have and making it work better. I will always take into account your budget when advising on what you should do and offer different levels of service. Remember, home staging is an investment and the cost is likely be reflected in an improved asking price.
