What is Home Staging?2020-11-18T15:26:24+10:00

Home Staging is arranging furniture and décor (also known as ‘fluff’) with the intention to showcase a house for sale. The goal of staging is to make a home appealing to the highest number of potential buyers, thereby selling a property more swiftly and for more money.

How much does the consultation cost and what happens during?2020-11-18T15:36:38+10:00

It’s completely FREE!

One of our stylists will meet you at your house. They will ask you a few questions to get a better understanding of your situation and to determine what kind of staging would be the most beneficial option for you. The whole process goes for about 15-30 minutes.

 

Quite often we try to give you tips to make your property more presentable for sale. That way even if you choose not to go ahead with our services, we were at least able to nudge you in the right direction.

What is included in the quote?2020-11-18T15:39:03+10:00

What happens during an install?2020-11-20T14:23:29+10:00

Organised chaos is what happens. No, we’re just kidding! But that is what many people describe it as.

You can expect the majority of our Team to show up (usually 2 removalists and 2 stylists) and the whole process takes around 2 hours. In the first part, we bring in all the furniture (including artwork and décor) and then we let our stylists work their magic and put it all together.

Do I need to be there for the install?2020-11-18T16:08:44+10:00

No, you don’t.

In fact, we always advise homeowners to go and grab some breakfast or lunch, so when you come back you will be ‘wowed’ by the difference we made to your home and see it through the eyes of a potential buyer.

The ‘wow factor’ is not quite the same when you see the whole process unfold, but you are of course more than welcome to stay, if you wish.

How do you decide which style to use?2020-11-18T16:10:03+10:00

We get this question quite often, so we decided to write a blog especially on this topic – have a read here.

Can I choose the style?2020-11-19T08:16:43+10:00

Feel free to let us know if you have a certain style preference at the time of our initial conversation, we always try to take it into consideration. But ultimately, the style we choose is based on what works best for your home, in combination with the target audience, as well as what is available to us at the time of the install.

Can I use some of my own furniture?2020-11-19T08:18:06+10:00

Absolutely! This is what we call Integrated Styling.

One of our stylists will review your existing furniture & accessories and identify which may be suitable for the style, theme and feel we are going for; to attract the maximum number of buyers.

 

We love Integrated Styling – it is a budget-friendly option and by incorporating your furniture, the finished style has a very homely and unique feel to it.

What about my furniture that will not be used for staging?2020-11-19T08:19:32+10:00

If you need, we can organise storage for you!

 

We have a discounted rate with National Storage that will be passed onto you (we do not take any commission on this). The storage unit will be transferred into your name and will accrue a monthly charge, which means you can keep your furniture stored for as long as you need. The average price of a 3×3 unit is $350/month, which includes insurance & cleaning fee.

 

We can pack, transport & move your furniture into the storage unit for you on the day of the install.

 

This invoice will be sent as a separate invoice within 7 days of furniture removal.

How much does Home Staging cost?2020-11-19T14:12:08+10:00

Each property is priced differently, because there are a lot of different variables we have to take into consideration.

For indicative purposes, these are the estimated amounts (incl. GST), based on the size of the property:

 

  • 1 bed Townhouse$2,300 – Master bedroom, living/dining room, outdoor, bathroom and kitchen
  • 2 bed Townhouse – $2,600 – 2 bedrooms, living/dining room, outdoor, bathroom and kitchen
  • 3 bed Townhouse$2,900 – 3 bedrooms, living/dining room, outdoor, bathroom and kitchen
  • 3 bed House$3,300 – 3 bedrooms, living/dining room, outdoor, bathroom and kitchen
  • 4 bed, 2 Living House$4,000 – $4,500 – 4 bedrooms, living/dining room, media room, outdoor, bathroom and kitchen
  • 5 bed, 3 Living House$5,000 – $6,000 – 5 bedrooms, living/dining room, media room, formal living, 2 x outdoor, bathroom and kitchen

 

We know that everyone’s financial situation is different, that’s why we offer a couple of different payment options:

  • Upfront (attracts 5% discount)
  • Stage Now, Pay Later (20% upfront, the remainder within 30 days after the installation)

 

*TIP* – Did you know that home staging cost can be a tax write-off for your investment property? Have a chat with your accountant to see if you are eligible!

Will you work with my budget?2020-11-19T08:30:52+10:00

Absolutely! We always try to consider your budget across all aspects of our styling.

At first, we present you with the best-case scenario (full style). You then let us know how it sits with your budget and if needed, we can scale it back and change things accordingly.

For example, we can look at doing:

 

  • Integrated Styling -means that we use some of your furniture (most often beds and mattresses, but we may use other furniture as well). This brings the costs down for you and creates a unique, homely finish.
  • Partial Styling – means that we style a few rooms only. These are usually the most important spaces like the living and just one or two bedrooms.
I got a cheaper quote elsewhere.2020-11-19T08:41:44+10:00

That’s fantastic, it’s always a great idea to get multiple quotes as it keeps us honest. But please, make sure you are comparing apples with apples.

Do your background research – have a look at the quality and the amount of furniture, as the cheaper companies tend to cut corners to keep their cost down (skimping on cushions and accessories, using low-end furniture from Kmart, Target or Ikea – which means your house will be associated with lower cost & lower value).

 

In the South East QLD market, we are priced in the middle-range (meaning we aren’t the cheapest, but definitely not the most expensive).

Can I live in the house after you stage it?2020-11-19T08:43:19+10:00

Yes, you absolutely can! Just make sure you let us know at the time of the consultation.

Everything we bring in is fully insured against fire and theft (but not against malicious or accidental damage). This means that you can use everything as if it was your own, bed sheets included!

What about the linen?

We purchased all the bed sheets with our trades discount and passed the discount onto you, incorporating it in your quote. You get to keep the linen after your house is sold. We only buy great quality sheets made from materials that will not crease during the entire sales campaign.

What if I accidentally damage something?2020-11-19T08:45:41+10:00

Please let us know as soon as you can, either by a phone call or an email.

It is your (the homeowner’s) responsibility to return all items in good order. Depending on the type of damage it is, we may have to pass the repair costs onto you.

What if I have pets?2020-11-19T08:47:37+10:00

We love pets! But unfortunately, they have caused some issues in the past. Especially dogs and cats, who decided to mark their territory smack-bang in the middle of our rug.  Because the odour was so distinctive, we had to charge the owner a full replacement cost of the rug.

So please, all we ask of you is to be cautious and remember that it is your full responsibility as the homeowner to return all furnishings & other staging items in the same pristine condition.

How long will I have the furniture for?2020-11-19T08:49:02+10:00

The standard rental period is 6 weeks, (4 weeks paid + 2 weeks free).

We find most of the time this period is long enough to cover the entire sales campaign, from the time it is advertised on the market until the contract is signed.

What if my house sells early?2020-11-19T08:57:40+10:00

Woohoo, congratulations! Pop the champagne!

This is always a lovely compliment to us, because it means we must have done our job really well.

 

 

 

Can I get a refund, because the rental period is shorter?

Unfortunately, there is no refund we can offer.

The majority of the cost that you paid at the start is not for furniture hire, but for our styling service. Expenses like insurance, delivery and styling hours stay the same, regardless of the timeframe your house sells within.

But we are absolutely stoked for you! Please let us know when it goes unconditional, so we can organise some time and date for collection to allow you to get ready for your next adventure.

What if my house does not sell within the rental period?2020-11-19T09:01:45+10:00

To put your mind at ease – this does not happen very often. In the unlikely scenario, simply touch base with us so we can discuss your options from here on.

Note: Our extension rates are laid out in the Terms & Conditions document you have signed when we sent the invoice.

What if I don’t like the chosen style or something is not to my taste?2020-11-19T09:06:49+10:00

We would never leave a job unless we are 100% happy with the results. But in the off chance (and this doesn’t happen very often) that you are unhappy with anything, we will work with you and your Real Estate Agent to make sure that you love it as much as we do!

 

Quite often people mistake ‘Home Staging’ for ‘Interior Design’. Styling a property for sale is all about making it appealing to as broad a market as possible, whereas Interior Design reflects a homeowner’s personal taste & lifestyle needs.

Therefore, most issues are resolved with a friendly conversation where we explain why we did what we did, but please (and we could not stress this enough) –  always feel comfortable to reach out if you have any concerns.

Does Home Staging work?2020-11-19T09:24:25+10:00
