For most of us, a move into a new house is an exciting time. It’s generally a happy event that represents a big success of some kind. We have managed finally to save up enough money for a decent deposit. We have been giving a promotion at work. We are done with the suburbs and ready to live in the city’s fast lane now that our children are grown. We don’t mind the upheaval of moving, hiring a home stager or calling in a vendor to install furniture hire. Sydney movers are overall a happy lot. Unfortunately, not all moves are happy ones.

From time to time a move into a different place is the result of a more tragic event. A divorce, a job lost, or even the death of a loved one can precipitate a change in residence. At unhappy times, it can be difficult to function, let alone orchestrate the very complicated business of moving our things from place A to place B. Finding the mental wherewithal to stage the old place, call in furniture hire Sydney specialists, and  somehow keep our heads above water can take every bit of energy we can muster. Keeping our sanity can be a huge challenge under these circumstances. A really reliable home staging company can swoop in and remove the burden in your time of need.

Selling your house, for whatever reason, is actually the liquidation of an investment that probably represents most of your life’s savings. To take on such a transaction when you’re not at your mental-best can be disastrous. It’s tough enough to find contractors, schedule and supervise painters, plumbers, landscapers and the final clean-up when you’re at your best. In bad times, it can be maddening.

Fortunately, at such times we can rely on the expert help of a good selling agent. A good stager can be the answer to at least some of your problems, and your agent will probably have a list of stagers s/he likes to work with. (Breathe a sigh of relief.)

You might not have worked with a home staging firm before and don’t know what to expect. Essentially, your home stager will prepare your house cosmetically to appeal to home buyers. They can also take care of all the details of making the place ready to attract the highest bids. Very often there are deferred maintenance tasks and other chores that should be done before the place is listed. Paint is almost always necessary, but plumbing and electrical issues often raise their heads. Bringing in the professionals and supervising the work to be sure your house shows well is part of what a stager can do for you. Once the house is physically ready, there is the matter of decorating.

A stager’s primary job is to dress your home for success. They take careful measurements and plan the best way to enhance your house’s appeal. Not only do they plan the way the traffic flow is presented, they contract with a furniture hire vendor to install the perfect furniture pieces to make your place look amazing. Making it absolutely irresistible is the primary concern of the stager.

Stagers consider window treatments, how to make your bookshelves and towel racks show off the best features of your rooms, all while making your house “feel” safe and secure. In other words a good stager helps with the sale on multiple levels. From the way the place looks to its psychological appeal, your stager is bent on making your house feel like home. And it doesn’t stop inside.

Stagers work hard to maximise every feature your house has to offer. This takes careful planning and more than a little training. Your home stager is a designer, a contractor, a decorator, and a trusted consultant all in one. When you find yourself in an emotional valley, it’s nice to know somebody is looking out for your best interests.

No matter what life event is fuelling your home sale there are ways to get the job done effectively and profitably even when you are not at your best. Allow your sales team to get the work done. From painting contractors to landscapers, not to mention the balancing act of selecting the perfect furniture hire Sydney, you can avoid the stress almost entirely by placing your trust in the professionals.
