Q I have a vacant property that needs to be sold. I received a few quotes from stagers. The minimum fee on leasing the furniture is high. I practically have to pay for a few months of rent even if the property sells on the first day. Is there any way to avoid these fees?
A Yes! There is a way to minimize monthly fees or even avoid them in some cases. If you stage with BLIS Home Design, you are working with an interior designer. We offer design and staging services at all price points. We work with colors, light, space, decorative and architectural details that are in the home. Sometimes, it is enough to change some colors, add or replace lighting, emphasize or add a few architectural/decorative elements and add accessories, window treatments, and small furniture to obtain the result on likability and avoid monthly fees to rent furniture. Schedule your on-site consultation.
