When preparing a property for sale, and considering a home staging service, there are two key things to contemplate. How much time can you dedicate to the project, and how much money are you prepared to spend?
Preparing a home for sale can be a daunting task. From general maintenance to renovations, de-cluttering, cleaning and styling, there is usually a lot of work to do before a property is fit for an open home.
And while you may be confident de-cluttering and cleaning, you may require a helping hand when it comes to the final presentation of your property. This could come in the form of hired styling accessories or furniture.
Ultimately, when you consider all that needs to be done, it’s worth asking yourself if you are confident that your property will fetch its maximum possible asking price if you do all the work yourself.
If you lack the time or creativity to see your property reach its full potential, employing a professional property stager might be just the ticket. There are many ways to utilise the services of a stager.
You may choose to employ a building inspector to complete a building report and then complete the majority of the tasks yourself. But you could then employ the services of a home stager to inspect your home and create a list of things you need to buy to style it yourself.
This cheaper option could see you spending around one hundred and fifty dollars for the home staging consult plus any purchases you decide to make post-consultation.
You could use a professional home stager to complete an initial, objective property inspection after which you carry out the de-cluttering, cleaning and general maintenance items yourself. You could then use a small budget of around five hundred dollars to hire styling accessories for the main living areas of your home. This will freshen up key spaces in anticipation for sale.
Simply make sure that you have considered all your options then get the team you need around you to help you sell your home for more!
