Styling a house for sale on the surface seems quite simple. Your regular space just has to be clean, tidy, and look nice for the photographs, right?
Well you’d be half-right – but your regular space just isn’t the same (nor will it get the same results) as a styled space when it comes to successfully selling your property. Property styling for sale is a level above styling for everyday living.
What is the difference between property styling for sale and styling for life?
It is said a buyer will make up their mind within eight seconds of seeing a home for sale, which means you have to go for the wow factor straight away. Setting up your house in order to sell it focuses on clean lines, spaciousness, and good-quality items set out in a unique but universally-appealing way.
Styling your home for living requires it to look beautiful, but also be practical and functional. Here, you’re going to ensure you have enough storage space, and that the house is livable and user-friendly. Sometimes you have to sacrifice what looks visually appealing with what is realistic for you and your family every day. You can’t always hide everything in a closet and hope for the best!
How do you stage a property to sell?
Staging your home to ensure it fetches the best price at market involves creating a space with the buyer in mind. They need to be able to see themselves in the house, which means lots of neutrals, clutter-free areas, and for things to be fully finished and working well.
We can help transform your house to create a punchy emotional impact the buyer just cannot resist. With our Styled to Sell package, we style a property based on the potential buyers’ needs by setting out the home in the style that best speaks to your target market. It has less of a focus on practical, and instead goes for the showstopper: the buyer has fallen in love.
Investing in the optics of the property at this prior-sale point costs less than your first price reduction and brings big returns at the end – it’s well worth it!
What styling makes a house a home?<
Form and function goes into the house that fits you like a glove. It has the items in it that you hold dear, set out in an attractive way, and that suits your family.
Our Styled to Stay package includes either us shopping and sourcing items for you, or we come shopping with you to help you design your dream space to live in. Shopping comes in 5-hour blocks and can be as interactive or hands-off as you wish.
