Home staging

Home staging whizz Roz Scott gets immense satisfaction from her work, because she gets results.

Upping the “wow factor” in a home is often the difference between a sale and no sale.

“We were called in recently to home stage a house that had been on the market for two years,” Scott says. “With a new look, it sold within a week.”

Another property languished on the market for six weeks with no nibbles. “This was before Christmas when the Wellington market was very hot. We gave the house a makeover that raised price expectations from $1.5 million to $1.7m plus, and they had an offer three days later.”


Don't be shy! Have your say....
