FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Does property styling work?


Nothing appeals more to a buyer than a clean and defined space without all the clutter and personal effects of the current owner. This helps the potential buyer create an emotional attachment to your property which leads to a faster sale and often for more. Our 2018 results show property styling contributed to an average selling price $54K over expectation and we assisted the selling of the property 50% faster than market average for the area (based on RP Data figures).




Why should I get my home styled for sale?


First impressions are everything. To get the best possible result, you need to present your property in the best possible light. We know exactly how to create a welcoming, desirable atmosphere that makes the most of your home’s best architectural features, and shifts attention away from any minor imperfections. Property styling answers the visual and spatial questions buyers have when entering an empty home - we fully furnish so that they can imagine what it would be like to live there.




Can I expect an increased sale price from styling?


Absolutely. Creating the right story around your home has emotional appeal. A style that matches the aesthetic of the area, the building itself, and the target buyer's lifestyle aspirations can significantly increase the sale price of a property.




What if the styling isn't to my taste?


Styling to sell is about projecting a lifestyle - but not necessarily your lifestyle. The most important thing to remember when styling a home with the goal of selling is to remove yourself and your family from the picture. Once you decide to sell your house it’s important for you to see it as an ‘item’ for sale. You need to mentally start moving out ASAP and prepare your home for the next owner, not for you! It is our business to understand property market demographics and make sure that the styling of your home appeals to the broadest range of buyers possible. We specialise in tailoring our work to suit your property type, architectural style and your future buyer’s desires!
