Why Home Staging is More Important Now than Ever

April 22, 2020

The world is still turning and houses are still moving!

On my neighbourhood walks over lockdown, I’ve watched as ‘Sold’ stickers have been put up on some of the ‘For Sale’ boards outside houses in my area.

Many clever Real Estate Agents as well as taking photos, are now also making video tours of properties- perfect for times like this when physical access isn’t possible at all, or going forward, when it will be limited (viewings by appointment only).

We think we’ll see this becoming more and more popular as time goes on and we continue adjust to this ‘new normal’. With many house buyers required to make their purchase decisions from a distance, digitally presenting your home in the most glowing light is paramount!


Why is Home Staging so important?

Home Staging has always been important for displaying your home in the best way possible; to emphasise the highlights and play down the areas for improvement. Now it is even more of a selling ‘must-have’ than EVER! 

Digital is now King, so you need to really make the best first impression through photography and video! Get people clicking on your online listing & stopping by your For Sale boards with irresistible images of your beautifully staged and styled property.



A home staged and styled by Sojo at the beginning of March, the agent made a fab job of this virtual tour; picking out all the amazing features this family home has to offer… now watch as this property gets snapped up quick-smart!



*Following the government’s announcement to move to Level 3, we are gearing up to return on Tuesday 28th April and are once again taking bookings for Home Staging*.

To make an enquiry, head over to our contact page or give us a call.

We look forward to hearing from you!
