FAQs

Q?

Why do I need to “stage” my home when trying to sell it?

A.

Simply put, although you may feel your property may appear to look good, we take an independent stance and know exactly what will appeal to buyers. This skill is honed by years of experience knowing what is needed to improve the first impression. And, we all now how important "first impressions" are!

Q?

How long does it take to stage a home?

A.

The quick answer is usually 1-3 days. The more detailed answer is, it really depends on what is needed to make the house look more attractive to buyers.  The size of the home, the number of rooms we are staging and if any cosmetic repairs are required, can and will determine how long it will take to stage a home.

Q?

What is involved when you stage a home?

A.

We generally begin with an in-home consultation. That way we get to know what you are looking for in terms of the style of staging we can put in place along with some suggestions in terms of what may need repairing or just some basic cosmetic changes.

We also determine your budget and a timeline that is convenient for you. If changes are required, the trades are then invited to quote and schedule a time to perform any necessary changes. We then look at furniture needs and prepare a list of what is needed to be moved out as well as what we need to bring in. We are very efficient in all aspects of the process making it a stress-free time for you.

Q?

What about our personal effects? Our pictures and family effects?

A.

We really recommend de-personalizing the home spaces. Why? Because when potential buyers come in to view a property, the personal pictures, awards and such, make it harder for buyers to envision themselves living there.

So, we remove the personal effects to ensure buyers can see themselves living in the home spaces which will facilitate a quicker sale and top-dollar!

Q?

How much does staging cost?

A.

The initial consultation costs [put fee here] and takes between 1 and 3 hours. Once done, we can then establish a budget and offer a set fee for our services. Like everything in life, pricing will be different from home to home, so we make sure you get the best pricing with no surprises.

Q?

We’ve already moved out and our house is empty. Does that matter when selling our house?

A.

An empty house doesn't give much perspective on room size and usability. An empty house does not convey warmth and is definitely not inviting. Our plan is to make the home an inviting warm space with furniture and effects that emulates that nice appealing feel when buyers walk into each room. This will help to sell the house quickly.
