Since 2013 home staging has been gaining popularity in Singapore’s property market. However, if you’re new to the concept of home staging, you probably have a few burning questions. So here are some frequently asked questions we received about home staging.
What is home staging?
Home staging is to create the perfect first impression by decorating an unfurnished property with temporary furniture and accessories. It helps to demonstrate how to utilise the space and to entice your clients with an inviting environment.
When do I need home staging?
Every home can benefit from home staging to increase the appeal of your home to potential buyers. Even if you have a unit that is well decorated and stylised, it may not be what home buyers are looking for when browsing for a property. So home staging helps to depersonalise your unit while making your unit appealing to the mass, which in turn attract more potential viewers.
Isn’t decluttering enough?
Decluttering may be the first step to home staging, however, there is much more component to home staging. To make your potential buyers fall in love with your place, there are much more things to consider about during home staging than just decluttering. For example, the wall colours, furniture and decors around the unit.
Do I need to hire a professional home stager?
You can do home staging yourself. However, professional home stagers often see things that you might miss out and depersonalise your home better as you might have sentimental or personal feeling towards the decor you have at home that is on display. Professional home stager also has huge warehouses full of furniture and accessories that they can pick from, that best suit your home.
How do I choose the right home stager?
To make sure you choose the right home staging company that is effective and well experienced in the field, do some research ahead of time and have a look at the company’s profile, website, testimonial and portfolio of their recent works. For example, SFR’s is the No.1 home staging company in Singapore. Which started in 2013 and have helped over hundreds of agents with their home staging needs. Shameless plug. 😝
