Selling your home or business is stressful. Of course you’d like to get the best price. You want to get on with your life.
Property staging is only now gathering momentum on Hawai’i Island, and it’s about time. Enlisting an Interior Designer to stage your home or business or that of your real estate client is a smart move. It assures the property will look its best and that you will receive the highest price the real estate is able to fetch.
What is involved in staging?
A stager is hired to assesses the condition and feel of the property. Often people are simply living their lives or running their businesses according to a certain level of comfort, and that has always been okay. But for a successful sale, it’s important to welcome the perspective of someone with a trained eye, one who has experience and a talent for knowing how to optimize the appearance of the environs.
Staging might entail clearing away what’s not essential to a space so that prospective buyers can envision themselves in it. It will also require some cash outlay on your part, not only for the staging service, but potentially for materials and/or labor to update certain aspects of the property (paint job or the replacement of worn-out furnishings, for example). Something as simple as replacing faded or torn curtains makes a big impression on someone who has never before set eyes on the place.
If the home or business you own is vacant, a stager can come in, provide furniture on loan, clean the space and place objects ‘just so’ to impress buyers.
In the end, the choice is up to you. Statistics consistently demonstrate that buyers who stage their property profit significantly over those who do not. And the speed at which the real estate is sold is certainly accelerated.
