After: Furniture placement can make a smaller space seem larger.

There are times when a seller’s existing furniture and accessories suit the lifestyle feel that a potential buyer desires. In those cases, a Home Staging Consultation with a professional stager can help the home owner present their listing in the most marketable way. Small changes can help a buyer walk in and quickly see themselves living there.

But there are other times when existing furniture needs a little boost. In some cases, that means swapping out selective pieces of existing furniture, art, and accessories with rented ones to create a more updated feel or add a memorable touch.

Especially when existing furniture is older, some sellers choose to rent a storage unit for the items that will follow them to their next home prior to the actual move. That clears the space to rent furniture for staging the main rooms in the property in order to market the listing at its best.

You only have one chance to create a positive first impression. When it comes to your largest investment, renting furniture for staging – whether a few selected pieces or a full furniture rental package – could be worth the up-front cost for a faster sale – if chosen wisely.
