When it comes to selling your home, did you know that having your property styled and staged by a seasoned professional can add 5-10% to the sell price of your home? 5-10% that is huge!
As property stylists, we have seen time and time again how professionally styled and staged homes helps buyers forge an emotional connection with the property – an aspect that is so important when it comes to converting a sale. Let’s take a look at a recent property we staged that resulted in a highly favourable sell price.
Our clients approached us needing their vacant property styled that they wanted to put up for sale. Our clients knew that having a vacant home on the market would drastically reduce their sale price, as well as deter potential buyers from truly grasping the potential of the home. This home boasted large spaces perfect for a growing family and our clients wanted to highlight the many features the property had to offer potential buyers.
A new coat of paint was given to the property to provide a fresh, blank canvas. Regardless of whether a home has a new or older style interior, investment in a new coat of paint, always in a neutral palette is well worth the time and effort. The last thing you want your potential buyers seeing is scuff marks and discolouration on your walls.
Starting with a blank canvas we created functional, livable zones for each area of the home. As this home was being marketed to a family, we made sure that the bedrooms and living areas demonstrated the best use of available space for a family regardless of whether they had small or adult children.
The house already featured stunning timber flooring throughout much of the home. This natural timber element and tone was carried throughout the rooms in various furnishings and décor to both showcase the natural beauty of the timber and to create a running theme throughout. Accent pieces such as the brown leather couch in the living area help to add additional highlights to the space. Statement, oversized artwork was also installed to create focal points in various rooms as well as help to tie in the décor aspects of each room.
This home was sold in record time for a highly favourable price. Congratulations to our clients and to Leading Real Estate Sunbury for this great sale.
