Home Staging Works!!!

Justine has worked alongside the best and most original gurus in the industry, enabling the owner to sell sooner and at a much higher price than expected.  

Home Staging is not a new concept. I started over 30 years ago in the U.S. and has now become a worldwide trend, popular in England, France and Sweden. It has become known relatively recently in Spain although it is certainly becoming quite popular in the Balearics.

What is Home Staging?

Basically, it is the use of certain tecniques to optimise the look of your property. Setting the Scene to make it look more attractive and therefore sell quickly. Here are the main steps:

  • Depersonalize
  • Clean
  • Tidy
  • Reorganize
  • Harmonize

Why should we do Home Staging in the property we wish to sell?

Because potential buyers do not want to see how others live in that house: they want to imagine what their lives would be like living in that home. Its real possibilities, its value and its unique features. The main mission of Home Staging is to get the highest number of potential buyers to like the house and, in order to achieve this, all traces of former occupants which might “undermine” the sale must be removed.  

Why engage a professional Home Stager?

The answer is simple: although it may seem easy, it is not. The Home Stager is an expert who at all times knows what must be done to optimise the final outcome, with the added advantage of being more objective than we are. The Home Stager knows how to extract the best out of all the existing features of the house, flat or commercial premises, or even add a new item which may lead the potential buyer to “see himself” living there.
