Condo Staging

When you think about "home staging," condo staging may not be top of mind. Actually, condos may not be the type of home you envision when you imagine the Texas real estate market. But the fact of the matter is, Dallas-Fort Worth is a hot spot for condos. With life finally resuming after this slow year, the city's urban core is opening its arms, and condos are a fantastic housing option for people hungry for events, restaurants, and things to do.


According to statistics from texasrealestate.com, from July 2019 to June 2020 there were 5,550 new condo listings. That's compared to 4,090 new townhome listings in the same timeframe.


The important thing to note is how long those condos were on the market. From January to June 2020 condos spent an average of 61 days on the market. In a market as hot as Dallas' has been for the last year, that's a long time.


And how do you decrease the number of days a listing is on the market? Home staging. Or in this case, condo staging.


People purchase condos for a variety of reasons: they are downsizing from a larger home, they want a shorter commute, or they want walkability. Size is not typically a concern, as the average condo is about 1200 square feet. However, with condo staging, our goal is to make the condo appear as large as possible.


Sleek, modern furniture

In this Dallas condo staging project, we went with a contemporary, minimal approach to maximize the living space. Light-colored walls and contrasting dark blue furniture make for an inviting space that isn't over-the-top. Avoid bulky furniture that takes up a lot of space.

Multi-use rooms

A listing for a condo may say that it's 2-3 bedrooms, but you want to make sure at least one of the rooms showcases the functionality of the space by turning it into a home office.

Thoughtful placement

Room dimensions may be a bit smaller than the single-family homes, so it's vital that furniture and decor are situated to enhance the room's more desirable features such as natural light or a stunning view from the window.
