When estate agents or letting agents talk about ‘staging a home’, they’re talking about preparing a property for sale or rent. Quite simply, staging is designed to show a home at its best so it engages and impresses potential buyers or renters.
For example, large, empty spaces can prove challenging. People struggle to picture where their furniture will go or how a room could be used once their furniture is in place. Staging can answer their questions. A carefully and professionally staged room also looks and feel bigger.
And because the average cost is usually much less than the first price reduction, experts say staging is an investment worth making. It not only increases the chances of a sale or rental but also helps to get the best possible price.

HOME STAGING FOR DEVELOPERS AND NEW BUILDS
MAKE SURE YOUR PROPERTY STANDS OUT
The rise in popularity of home staging over recent years means there’s now plenty of evidence of its success. Home staged properties generally sell quicker and achieve higher prices. Not only that. With the fall in demand from overseas buyers and the surge in properties bought off-plan, home staging can play a vital role in setting your property apart from everything else on the market.
Delivering an eye-catching finish without a huge financial outlay, home staging is a tailor-made alternative for developers who don’t want the expense of a show house. It’s also an effective (and cost-effective) option for developers with one-off properties or smaller development schemes.
ADDING VALUE AND APPEAL IN THE RENTAL MARKET
DRESSED UP AND READY TO GO
Not only do the best-presented properties get snapped up faster than the competition, they also attract the highest yields, have the fewest rent-free periods and result in the longest tenancies. Our home staging team will dress your rental property with furniture and accessories carefully chosen to give it instant appeal. Once it’s rented, we can either remove the furniture and accessories or sell them to you or the new tenant, depending on your preference.
REFRESHING EX-RENTAL PROPERTIES
Long periods of tenancy can take their toll on rental properties. Tired and suffering from wear and tear, they’re often in need of a refresh, especially if they’re up for sale. Our home staging team is on hand to help. We’ll clear out unwanted furniture and carry out any necessary remedial and redecoration work. We’ll arrange a professional, deep clean before finally choosing and using a range of furniture and soft furnishings to complement the property, turning worn-out into must-have.
ATTRACT BUYERS AND TENANTS FROM OVERSEAS
Staging your property can be very useful in attracting both buyers and renters from overseas. A well-finished property with a 360 degree walk through and good photographs is key to attracting the right buyer or tenant.
