Frequently Asked Questions

"How much does homestaging cost?"

The costs involved are minimal - for a fully furnished home to be staged it may cost as little as $250.00 for us to de-clutter and for you to hire some high impact accessories! To stage a vacant home in which we bring all furniture and decor accessories (an approximate value of 12,000-15,000.00) into your home it costs from $337.50 GST Incl. per week plus a one off freight fee. This includes a Lounge, Kitchen, Dining and two bedrooms. (It's best to get a quote if you need a partial staging!)

· A full home staging service equates to less than 1/2 of a percent of a median priced home in the Nelson area ($340,0000) for 4 weeks full staging. Professionally staged homes sell on a conservative average of 6% more than un-staged or vacant homes. (6% of $340,00.00 = $20,400.00).

"Is there a consultation fee?"

The first consultation is free! Then if you would like us to help you we can quote on the level of service you require.

"Who pays for the staging fee?"

The property owner pays for our services as they are the ones who will benefit the most by presenting their home to its best potential.

"Is there a minimum rental term?"

No! We have structured our pricing to allow us to offer week by week rental. All we ask is an initial fee for furniture delivery/removal and then a weekly fee (dependant on rooms staged).

"What is your payment schedule?"

Once the freight fee is paid, we are offering deferred payment of the weekly rental fee payable on the sale of the home! Plus, if for any reason the home is taken off the market, or the staging ceased, we require a partial payment of the weekly rental (Please phone for details!)

"How quickly can you do a staging from time of first contact?"

In the past we have been given as little as two days notice from request to fully staged! But the more time we are given to organise a staging the more we can tailor our staging suit your property!

"Why don't I just stage my own place?"

It is very hard to look at your own home decor objectively! That is one of the biggest advantages of having fresh eyes assess your home is we look from a buyers perspective. Things that you have lived with for years may put off buyers. Having experience in decor styling and furniture placement is also a big plus as it creates space and flow. We have access to high impact decor accessories and furniture that can be hired from us on a week by week basis. This way you don't have to buy and store items that might not suit your new home.

"How long does it take to stage a home?"

It all depends on each job. For a totally vacant home it takes 2 days to completely furnish and style a property. We endeavour to stage each home as quickly as possible!

"When should I stage my home?"

We recommend getting us to come to your home for a consultation as soon as you have decided to put your home on the market. This way we can suggest ways that you can enhance your home without rushing or costing a lot on money. We can then advise you (room by room) how we could style your home and set a time line for any hired items to be placed so it is all ready for advertising photographs and viewings.
