Temporary home staging could help boost prices

Home staging could help make the properties that you are currently trying to sell or let look larger, brighter, cleaner, warmer, more homely, and, above all else, persuade applicants to buy or rent them at a high price.

The idea behind giving a property a temporary makeover is to try and improve its internal appearance through lighting, decorating and furniture, with a view to attracting more potential buyers, helping to sell it faster and at a higher price.

The latest Home Staging Report 2020, released last week by the Home Staging Association UK & Ireland, shows that home staging is becoming increasingly more popular when it comes to selling a property.

The report, which seeks to measure the success of home staging professionals through the survey of a range of property professionals, found that 71% of property professionals expressed the need for a home staging professional from the outset of marketing.

The report said: “A seller with any marginal understanding of Home Staging would know one of its primary benefits: offer value increase.”

The survey also revealed that 40% of agents that sold home staged properties this year achieved raised offers of up to 3%, which is up from 38% of agents in 2019.

“Home staging services generally aren’t cheap, but staged properties are nearly always easier to sell, and they often achieve a higher price, which should cover the cost of the service,” said Adam Feather, managing director of Robert Anthony estate agents in north London.

    *The survey also revealed that 40% of agents that sold home staged properties this year achieved raised offers of up to 3%, which is up from 38% of agents in 2019.*  – What total twaddle – as we all know offers isn’t the same as sale completed and money in the bank.
