A slow economy combined with stricter lending regulations has caused a surplus of homes in the housing market. With many homes sitting on the market for an extended period of time, it is difficult to get your listing noticed. How can you highlight the best features of a home while attracting potential buyers? Many real estate professionals have asked the same question and found home staging to be the solution.
Home staging prepares a home so it will appeal to the highest number of potential buyers with the goal of selling the property faster and, hopefully, for more money. A successful home staging will showcase the best traits of a home and help potential buyers envision themselves in the space. It is an excellent marketing tool for real estate professionals, and research has shown that staged homes usually sell faster than regular counterparts.
The easiest and most cost-effective way to stage a home is by using a furniture rental company. A furniture rental company can help you select the best designer/home stager, do all the heavy lifting to get a house set up, and will pick up the furniture when the house has sold.
So, what should you be looking for when choosing a furniture rental company?
Large Inventory – A furniture rental company should offer a wide variety of furniture styles to select from. Home styles vary drastically, so a quality furniture rental company should have pieces that can be used in all types of homes. A beautiful living room set might look perfect in one home, but out of place in another.
Quality Merchandise – The furniture and accessories should be in excellent shape and made of high quality materials. Many furniture rental companies carry cheaply made furniture, which detracts from the beauty of the home.
Excellent Service – A reputable furniture rental company should offer free furniture consultation services to help you select the right furniture for your project. The furniture should be delivered in a timely manner; some companies can deliver within 48 hours. They should offer flexible lease terms that will meet your needs as well as the clients.
Follow these three important guidelines when searching for a furniture rental company. It will help you home-stage with ease and sell with confidence.
