Benefits of Home Staging

Higher Selling Price

Staged homes sell for 6% more on average, and frequently sell for more than the asking price.

Faster Selling Time

Staged homes spend half the time on the market than un-staged homes. The longer a house is on the market, the further the price drops. Vacant houses take twice as long to sell as furnished ones.

Better Online Presence

Online photos stand out – 90% of buyers start their search online.

Targeted to the Right Buyers

We work closely with your Agent to ensure we know who your buyer is. Our bespoke staging ensures your property appeals to your target market.

    Frequently asked questions

    Home Staging is a wonderful marketing tool for preparing your home for sale.

    The goal of staging is to create the illusion of space, and make your home as appealing as possible to the highest number of potential buyers, in order to sell your property faster and for a higher price.

    We are interior designers who have a trained eye and in depth knowledge about space planning, colour theory and furniture placement. We use the same furniture in our staging as you will see in our retail Showroom.

    When it comes to selling your home, staging is an investment rather than a cost. It is the most effective way to improve the look and feel of your property without the need for costly renovations. We are part of your sales team, and it is important we are included in your budget the same way you allow for sales commission.

    We’re not a one-size-fits-all property styling agency and do not provide packages. Every home has different requirements and therefore lend themselves to a more tailored approach. We can provide you with a free, no-obligation quote on visiting your property, to assess requirements. Contact us to arrange a viewing time.

    Partial home staging is where your staging company works with your existing furniture, adding and/or substituting some pieces with their own to make the best use of the spaces. This type of staging can be useful when you plan to still live in the property while it is for sale. A full home stage is when the property is vacant and requires everything from furniture through to art, to bring out the best in each space.

    Empty rooms with blank walls can make it difficult for buyers to visualise their own belongings in the space. 80% of people can’t visualise. In most home-selling situations, rooms show better with furniture as it helps to give perspective and differentiate the space. Without items in a room, walls can seem closer in, making it hard to tell the room’s true size. This is especially true of marketing photographs. From an investment point of view, selling a home that is empty can give the unwanted perception that buyers can purchase the home for less-than-market value, because the seller seems desperate to sell… whereas staged homes more-often-than-not, sell for more!

    Our home staging furniture, linen and styling items are all sourced from top quality New Zealand Interior Design suppliers. We use the same items in our staging as you will see available to buy in our retail Showroom which is why our staging results are a step above our competitors.

    You can keep the staging for as long as you need it. Our standard minimum hire period is for four weeks and we throw in an additional week for free at the start, to account for time required to take photographs and produce marketing materials. Beyond this period, extensions are available if required.

    No, however many of the homes we work with do have alarm systems in place. We have insurance for our contents, but you are responsible for maintaining your building insurance.

    No. We are not able to stage homes with pets due to our insurance limitations.

    Yes, we can. This is referred to as partial staging and can be useful when you are planning to still live in the property while it is for sale. To show off the home to its greatest advantage, we may suggest that some of your items are stored away and/or replaced by our own furnishings. Our additions aim to work seamlessly with your own for a cohesive look.

    No. We do not have any storage facilities however, we can suggest companies that may assist.

    No. All items we use are hand-selected from our warehouse for each specific project, tailored to both the style of property and your target buyer. Our expert Interior Designers select everything from the furniture to soft furnishings and art, to develop a flow of colour through the property that will appeal to the most people.

    This can vary depending on the size of the property, however with all hands on deck we can confidently install a full three bedroom house in 1 day.

    We consider art to be essential for bringing the best out in our home staging. We hang only to correct heights and using proper picture hooks, which will leave small holes (though nothing a new homeowner will not be prepared for!) However, we always ask permission, especially if it is a new build or newly renovated.

    Yes! Our home staging furnishings are for sale. If you see something you like, let us know and we will be happy to assist.

    Prior to staging, we ask that the home is thoroughly cleaned and, in the case of partial staging, clear of any items of furniture our Interior Designers may have suggested removing during our initial consultation. For more information, please check out our blog on ‘How to Prepare’.

    Everything our qualified Interior Designers pick for your property is done so for a reason, using our best resources to suit your home. Don’t forget, staging is not designed to be personal to your own taste and style; it’s intended to attract a wider audience, so unless there really has been an obvious oversight, things will stay as they are.
