Selling a property?
Stage it to sell faster, and get your optimal price
Welcome to Home Stagers
Are you a homeowner, developer, investor
or real estate agent with a property to sell?
Home Stagers Cape Town stages properties in
Cape Town's Southern Suburbs, City Bowl and Atlantic Seaboard.
Home staging is a marketing tool. Once you put your property on the market, it becomes a product like any other, competing for buyers. You need to present it to the market in the best possible way.
I've been staging properties since October 2017. I'm delighted to report that 85% of the homes I staged by the end of 2019 sold in the first month. Six sold on the first day. Two of my own properties sold through staging: one of the first show day and the other on the preview night.
Wouldn't you like yours to do the same?
Let's talk about your property and how I can help.
Staging your empty property for sale
Empty properties spend at least 3 times longer on the market than staged properties. The current average time spent on the market in South Africa is 107 days (2019: last quarter stats). If its empty, you can expect it to take even longer to sell. That means more months of holding costs (bond, rates and taxes, etc).
Staging is an investment. Gone are the days when you can just put your home on the market as is and it will sell. It's a buyers' market and it's all about that first online impression. Potential buyers simply skip over empty properties.
If you are in Cape Town and have an empty property you want to sell, send me photos and I'll give you a quote.
Restyling your home
Living in the home you want to sell?
I'll restyle it using your furniture to get it ready to sell. I'll tell you what to keep and what not, and help you get the right accessories to appeal to the greatest number of buyers.
How it works
If you're in Cape Town's Southern Suburbs or City Bowl: I come to you and we spend an hour going over your property, starting at the kerb. Cost: R1500
If you're anywhere else in the world: You send me photos of all the spaces and we schedule a Zoom session of up to 2 hours. You can take notes and I will also send you a link to the Zoom recording. Cost: R1500
SOLD! SOLD! SOLD!
Liesa and I have worked together on several properties. We met when I sold her investment property that she staged. It sold in a day. Recently, I sold Liesa's own home that she staged. It sold on the preview evening for 98% of the asking price. Many other properties she has staged have sold on the first show day. One even sold for over asking. Liesa literally transforms properties into desirable homes.

I have used Liesa at Home Stagers recently. I did this after discussing staging with my seller. The house had been on the market for 2 months, it was tenanted and filled with lots and lots of bulky furniture which really did not allow buyers to truly "see" the house. When the tenant moved out the house was going to be totally empty. This was the total opposite of tons of furniture. Having an empty house also makes it hard for buyers to visualize the space (Questions like what size bed will fit in the bedroom? would my couch fit in there? etc.) We hired Liesa to furnish the bedrooms and lounge, place patio furniture, with beautiful plants and orchids.
The effect was immediate and we had offers in a week. The difference in the buyers' comments was incredible. Quite a few asked if the furniture was included in the sale!Liesa's team set up and removed the furniture seemlessly and I would recommend her highly.

Liesa's excellent design sense and practical approach ensured my apartment got sold quickly in a difficult market. And for the full asking price.

It was so easy to work with you and you were so professional. We'll definitely do this again if we ever need it.

We looked for a home stager in Cape Town to stage our house in Hout Bay. Liesa was the first to respond. She proved to keep this way of communication smooth, efficient and professional throughout. She overflowed with ideas and was clear on the do's and dont's. She truly transformed our home into a saleable asset. Our agent was over the moon!

I’ve done several developments in Cape Town and know that no matter how beautiful a property is, if it’s empty it takes ages to sell. Liesa has staged two of my luxury developments, with great flair. She is an absolute pleasure to work with, and her staging made all the difference to my sales.
