NH Home Staging FAQ - Does Staging Require Buying New Furniture?
Most New Hampshire sellers are not familiar with Home Staging and their expectations are usually based on TV shows...not exactly "real life" accurate.
Home Staging doesn't always involve the removal and replacement of your furniture. Yes, you can hire a stager to do that, but it's not required.
Sharon Tara Transformations specializes in Home Staging consults for occupied homes. I will recommend replacement when necessary, but whenever possible I use the home owners' existing furnishings. It's surprising what can be done simply by moving things around and "shopping" for accessories within the house.
1. Built-ins and paneling painted. New slipcover for couch. Nothing new brought in.
2. Furniture rearranged. Nothing new brought in.
3. Furniture rearranged. Nothing new brought in.
Professional Home Stagers pride themselves on saving sellers money and finding inexpensive, creative solutions when the furnishings are somewhat lacking in the appeal department.
If you have a vacant property, you will need furniture.... but, it's your decision whether to borrow, rent, or buy. Meet with a professional stager to discuss your options. You don't have to furnish every room. Most stagers can work with all budgets and advise you on which rooms would best benefit from staging.
