Home staging developed in the USA in the early seventies: is one of the ways you can highlight all the strengths of a property to appeal to the majority of potential buyers by creating a “love at first sight” feeling. It is a strategic marketing tool that is used to increase the value of a property to facilitate a quick sale at the best price. A property is normally sold in 90 seconds—or rather, it’s the first 90 seconds of the visit that are keys to selling your property. Intuitively, prospective buyers will have visual suggestions of how your home could be configured, of the proportion and scale of a space and the lifestyle that can be enjoyed within the home. It’s therefore essential to captivate and emotionally connect with prospective buyers so that they feel “at home” the minute they walk through your door.
Bring in a fresh eye
Staging is not decorating aimed at customizing your home and is not renovation. The concept of home staging is not to redo everything, as doing this would be very costly. It is important to set limits and focus on priorities. First, depersonalize your property then declutter it to redesign it, deal with small damage that could worry a buyer, and highlight the volumes and spaces. A few places might even need a good coat of paint, or it might be necessary to change the large-patterned wallpaper in the sitting room.
Interior designers can offer a different viewpoint and a fresh eye. Emotionally not involved, they are able to assist you in the completion of your project.
Home staging cost
Home staging does not justify the overestimate of a property, particularly in relation to the environment. Only real estate professionals aware of the market price in your area will be able to help you fix the right price for your property.
The total cost of home staging in itself, including my involvement, works and charges linked, ranges from 0.5% to 4% of the value of the property, with an average cost of around 1% to 2%.
The main objective is not to make money but to avoid losing some by giving potential buyers as few reasons as possible to try to negotiate the price
