Home Staging

Research has proven that staged properties sell quicker and for higher prices. A well staged property is the best way for you to get the sales result you want.

Transform your home with a stunning complete home staging scheme. By filling your blank canvas of a home with beautifully co-ordinated furniture and finishing touches, we can create a look and feel to win over potential buyers in an instant.

Why Home Staging?

Ready to sell your home? A real estate agent will help you price it competitively, but every agent knows that what makes a house sell is its presentation.

  • Home staging will help sell your home faster and for a higher value.
  • Most buyers will decide if a home is of interest to them within the first few seconds of viewing it. It’s these initial impressions that are crucial.
  • We'll curate a bespoke scheme to create "The Look" that will suit both your property and the people buying.
  • Our huge range of designer furniture and accessories will highlight your house's best features and create a space that buyers can't help but want to own!

Frequently asked questions

How much will it cost to stage my home?
Our peak season prices start at $3195 + GST for 5 weeks for an average 2 bedroom house or apartment. This is an all-inclusive price for 2 bedrooms, 1 lounge, 1 dining room, bathroom and a kitchen. We’re always happy to tailor a price to best suit your needs and are available to meet you or your real estate agent on site at a convenient time to listen to your needs and provide you with a free, no obligation quote.
What does the staging include?
Our price includes all preparation, styling, transportation, maintenance, insurance, packup and removal. It also includes all the furniture and accessories we install in your home. There are no hidden costs and we guarantee the price that we quote.
How long does it take to stage a home?
It will generally take us 4-5 hours to stage an average 3 bedroom home onsite. This doesn’t include the initial consultation or the offsite preparation time.
Can you work with my furniture?
Generally yes, we can do an enhancement using your furniture augmented by some of ours. It is preferable that we use entirely ours so we can ensure colours, styles and accessories all match to create a scheme that perfectly complements your house. From time to time in our peak months, we are unfortunately unable to do enhancements due to work load. We're also unable to stage properties when people are living there
How much preparation time do you need?
We can often stage a house the next day in an emergency. However we don’t recommend this. It’s best to talk to us at least 2 weeks or more prior to going to market so we can ensure that we have adequate time for preparation and planning.
Can I buy the furniture?
If you like the furniture we use for staging, we are able to provide you with a furniture sourcing service through out Interior Design channel. As we deal with hundreds of trade only suppliers for our staging operation, we know exactly where to get the right piece for your own home.
Where do you operate?
We’re based in the centre of Auckland but we regularly stage homes and holiday houses from Omaha to the Coromandel
Why shouldn't I just stage it myself?
Your house is generally the most valuable asset you’ll ever own and the sale and purchase of it is often the most expensive transaction you will make. Consequently it’s most important that it’s marketed and presented by an expert. Our team of trained professionals are in touch with market trends and know how to create a sense of continuity and space to best appeal to the buyers you will be selling to. We can approach your house objectively and with the knowledge and experience of what your buyers are looking for.
Can I choose the furniture you stage it with?
We're always happy to work with clients to ensure they get the results they want. However the final choice will be made by our stylists in consultation with you to create the perfect scheme. We can provide examples of the style or work we suggest as being most appropriate to ensure you get the best possible buyer appeal.
What styles can you stage?
We can accommodate any style and size of house. We have a 16000 square foot warehouse full of modern, contemporary, and classical  furniture that will ensure that any home can be styled to suit any buyer.
Do I need insurance?
We insure all of our furniture; however you will still need insurance for your house and property. We also have comprehensive business insurance in place to cover any eventuality.
