In this post, I would like to talk about vacant home staging of high end properties. Ok, we don’t get to stage them every day, but when I receive a request to stage one, I know that it will not be an average home staging.
Why? First of all, high end properties require ‘high end look’, which is not always easy to achieve with the furniture and accessories available for rent. Also, chances are that room sizes are bigger than average and, therefore, require larger furniture and, possibly, more furniture than regular properties. These properties usually take longer to sell, so the furniture and accessories might be staying there for a while….Therefore, I have to manage the client’s and the broker’s expectations in terms of the look and in terms of the appropriate budget for the project.
Maybe you think that a high end property doesn’t require home staging, even if it’s vacant. The location, the view, the large spaces…everything is there. Is it enough to sell it, though?
The truthful answer is ‘It depends’. It is possible that the property’s assets will suffice.
But staging the property will bring out those assets even more. It will be easier to attract potential buyers when the photos show furnished rooms. The visitors will visualize the spaces better as well.
As I previously mentioned, special care has to be taken with the style and size of the furniture appropriate to the property. In a vacant home staging of a high end property, I always recommend to do the main rooms – at the minimum, the entrance, the living room, the dining room, the master bedroom and accessorizing the kitchen and a bathroom.
See all the photos of this magnificent condo, which we staged last week. Less than 24 hours after the listing was active, there are already visits to the condo.
