Blog Series 'Think Outside The Fox' | Episode 2 Wallpapers have been around for hundreds of years and quite frankly… we don’t see them going away anytime soon. They are perfect for adding that little extra pop of personality to your rooms. Although they look beautiful in your own home, when it comes to selling your house, wallpapers may cause some issues. The potential buyers may not necessarily share the same taste in style, which could deter them from buying. "One thing we do not recommend is leaving the room with wallpaper vacant." - Phoebe Shorter | Chief [...]

By |2020-10-27T08:10:24+10:00October 26th, 2020|Behind The Scenes, Business of Staging, Home Staging Tips, Selling Your Home|

How Do You Determine Which Style to Choose? This is a great question and one we get quite often. Let's dig in. For Home Stagers - getting the style right is of paramount importance. It can mean the difference between someone selling their house or not.  After all, these people entrusted us with their livelihoods, which is a responsibility we don’t take lightly. That’s why we always exercise a fair amount of due diligence and look at each property individually. Every house is unique, and everyone’s situation is different, which means there is no simple answer. But we can [...]

Seeing Problems as Opportunities

If you’ve ever had to face an unhappy or dissatisfied client, you know the feeling. The stress and pressure that arises during these situations is enough to discourage some people from staging altogether. But it does not have to be this way. All it takes is some mindset adjustment. We at Foxy believe it is all about perspective. What some view as problems, we see as opportunities. Opportunities to learn and grow, but more importantly to get more business referrals, strengthen relationships and ultimately build reputation. We will share with you 3 positive outcomes that we [...]

Top 5 Home Staging Myths BUSTED

Happy International Sceptics Day! We couldn’t have asked for a better occasion to tackle this topic head on and clear some industry misconceptions once and for all. Don’t get us wrong, we have nothing against healthy scepticism as such (keyword: ‘healthy’). In fact, it is completely normal to be a little cynical at first, especially when you are facing a brand-new concept. But similar to the legal principle ‘guilty until proven innocent’, we like to think of sceptics as ‘doubtful until proven otherwise’. Let’s get straight into some of the most common misbeliefs about Home Staging. 1. [...]

Should You Use Scented Candles in a Staged House?

By |2020-10-02T14:39:32+10:00October 2nd, 2020|Home Staging Tips, Selling Your Home|

Staging a house for sale is mostly about creating the perfect illusion of lifestyle appealing to as many potential buyers as possible. Is ‘Lifestyle’ just a visual aspect, or should we be trying to entice other senses as well? Does the sense of smell affect buyers’ decisions? I had a chat about this topic with Phoebe, our Chief Stylist. You can watch the full interview on Foxy TV, Episode 82. Does Using Scents Make Sense? Yes, but they cannot be too strong. As home stagers, it is our responsibility to make the house attractive to the maximum possible number [...]

Does Home Staging Actually Work?

By |2020-09-24T09:34:54+10:00September 23rd, 2020|Business of Staging, Uncategorized|

I can already hear what you’re thinking… ‘Ugh, of course you are going to say it does, you work for a home staging business. You are biased.’ --- Well guess what. And by ‘research’ I don’t mean a 2 minute google search. Oh no. I wanted to get to the bottom of this. Over the last week I secretly dedicated more than 20 hours of my office time to delve deep into this topic, without anyone at Foxy knowing. It’s not that I was doing it behind their back. I just wanted to keep my [...]

What Blew My Mind During My First Week At Foxy

Hello Foxy Fans, Eva here! Last week was my very first week at Foxy Home Staging in a Content Writer / Styling Assistant position. And let me tell you.. what a week it was! To give you some context... My background covers lots of different industries, but Real Estate is not one of them. In fact, I didn’t even know what ‘Home Staging’ was until I applied for this cool gig at Foxy. So yeah, you’d be absolutely right to assume that there were a lot of things brand new to me. But there was this one thing in [...]
