PROPERTY STYLING ​- HOME STAGING

Everybody wants a well presented and well-maintained home. A home that appears practical and presents well generally sells faster and at a higher price. 

Regardless of the type of property you own, it is vitally important in any economic times, and even more specifically in Australia when the Real Estate market is moving slower, to stage your home for sale. The furniture is strategically placed to create more space. The colours and furnishings appeal to the majority and the home is depersonalized ensuring a greater appeal to all the buyers who inspect as they can picture themselves living in your home.  You can hire a professional to assist you in anything from consultation, to helping you style it yourself or arranging the whole install.

Feel free to download my complimentary checklists to help guide you in the right direction 

Bedroom Checklist

The bedrooms should give a feel of peace and comfort upon entering. A comfortable bedroom should be neutral, spacious and airy. Here are some tips to work on to achieve just that.

Bathroom Checklist
Bathroom Checklist

It is imperative that this room is spotless. No buyer likes the look of a dirty bathroom and it’s certainly something they do not want to clean when they move into a house.

Entry Checklist

This is the entry point to your home, and after the gardens and initial view of the façade it’s the first thing the prospective buyer sees as soon as they walk toward the property.

Facade Checklist
Facade Checklist

Repainting the exterior certainly enhances the home’s appearance, especially a wooden home and at times a change in colour is called for. A freshly painted house can add to the overall value of your home, which means a few extra dollars in your pocket.

Garden Checklist
Garden Checklist

Ensure the garden enhances your property’s presentation by keeping it well trimmed and maintained. The garden is the first thing the buyer will look at and if this isn’t up to scratch, they may not even get out the car.

Kitchen Checklist
Kitchen Checklist

Over the years you can accumulate a lot of ‘stuff’. Much of this is stored in the kitchen cupboards. Collections of cups and glasses, nonmatching cutlery and an endless number of plastic containers with missing lids. It’s like the odd sock mystery! (Or does this just happen to me?)

Laundry Checklist
Laundry Checklist

It can be very easy to forget and neglect the laundry; however, buyers know that when the laundry is fresh and clean, that care is generally taken with the rest of the house. It’s a place we don’t tend to spend too much time in, however if you make it look and feel as appealing as possible it is easy to add an extra WOW to the buyer’s list.

Living Room Checklist
Living Room Checklist

This is the area where your buyers will envisage themselves and their loved ones. It should be warm and cosy and welcoming. It should encourage enjoyment and relaxation with their loved ones. Check that the furniture, cushions, throw rugs and paintings are bright and stylish, not too much of your own personal touch.

Repairs Checklist

Repairs are vital and must be done before considering putting your house on the market. They make the home more appealing to buyers. Even minor repairs can do wonders for a home’s desirability.
