Home staging is all about selling your home faster and for more money so that you make the most money possible from the sale of your home and when that happens, you get to move forward to your next adventure.
With the huge popularity of HGTV design shows, design magazines and DIY books, it is no wonder that DIY home staging appeals to many home sellers who want all the benefits of a professionally staged property.
The issue with DIY staging is that novices often fail to take into account the psychological and sociological factors of their target buyer or, fail to understand who their target buyer actually is. Staging novices typically spend huge amounts of time developing a design plan and waste money on improvements and updates that do not give them the best return on their investment.
The best solution? Hire a staging professional to come in and do a consultation for you. You get the benefit of expert advice and planning guidance while giving you the opportunity to carry out the design in a way that works best with your budget and skills.
Home stagers will do as little or as much as you need. If you have little time it will probably be wise to take full advantage of your stager’s tradespeople, shopping services and accessory/furniture rental contacts. If you’re confident in some areas of home improvements and not in others, your home stager can help you find the help and expertise you need. If you are very confident in your DIY skills then eliminate costly mistakes by following the advice of an expert.
