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. [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
