For which properties is Home Staging recommended?
Home Staging is used for all types of homes: own, inherited, bank houses, apartments bought to rent… The only exception in which this technique cannot be applied is in those homes that need comprehensive reform, since Home Staging improves what exists but does not hide or mask the defects. If there are, they must be repaired before applying the 5 Home Staging techniques.
As a possible solution to cases in which the property is undergoing a total reform, if the owner does not want to undertake the heavy expenditure on works that may suppose, at least a virtual Home Staging can be useful. In it, based on renders or 3D infographics, the potential buyer can get an idea of how the house will be once renovated. This is also valid for empty flats, in case you don’t want to spend anything on furnishing them.
The Home Staging will not have the desired effects in those properties whose price is well above the market. The application of their techniques will undoubtedly improve its appearance, but it will not achieve an extraordinary increase in visits or close the sale. For these cases, the home needs to offer an additional design bonus (both in the type of reform or materials used and in the type of furniture chosen), which is beyond the scope of Home Staging itself.
