Home Staging for Sale: The Pros and Cons, Do’s and Dont’s

Interior plants

After many projects as a New York interior designer, one question that we get often is- does staging a home make for a faster sale on the real estate market? This is a great question and absolutely one of the top things we keep in mind when designing a place. Especially when we tackled projects that we have done with our real estate agent friends at Corcoran and Compass. Of course, there is no sure answer that staging has a direct effect on a faster sale, however, many people have trouble envisioning how they can live their personal lives in an unfamiliar and empty space. Therefore, strategic staging and accessorizing a space for sale may very well help to sell it that much more quickly by giving those who come to view the home a small push on what their future life in the home may feel like. 

As interior designers in New York, our clients often ask us to help them with problems such as striking a balance between a “model home” look and a lived-in home that is clean, well decorated, and presentable for sale can be difficult. Remember that the space should welcome people in, help them envision what this space COULD look and feel like as their home, and finally help to clinch a sale. Bringing the perfect balance between professionalism and stylish warmth of a home.

Oftentimes, it’s difficult to see your own home through the eyes of others. Your designer and stager will be able to see the potential in your home that you might otherwise overlook. For example, an empty nook you may use for storage, others can see as the perfect place to keep as a children’s corner. Selling a home is never an easy process, but having a professional like our expert New York interior designers on your side can make the task seem much less intimidating.
