Instead of thinking of home staging as an expense, property agents can think of it as a form of investment to sell the properties they have on hand. Home Staging services tend to cost only less than 1% of a property’s asking price and there are multiple cases that prove properties can be sold in as quickly as a week after staging or even the weekend after.

 

Home Staging only works for empty houses.

Stay-in owners of properties they want to sell tend to retain most of the furniture that they own previously during the property viewing. A buyer who may not share similar taste with the seller in furniture may be put off by the various colourful furniture they have ; even if they are not included in the deal. Home Staging specialists can provide proper advice and suitable furniture that allow buyers to imagine themselves living in the property they are viewing. Also, SFR Home Staging services provide disposal and storage services to help stay-in owners temporarily hold their furniture until they manage to sell their unit.

Home staging can benefit almost any kind of house, be it a large landed property or a small HDB flat. With large houses, Home Staging helps to showcase the large spaces home sellers have with quality furniture that match their property style. With smaller houses, Home Staging makes smaller rooms look more spacious with specially-selected furniture that fit into the spaces.
