The real estate industry has changed tremendously over the years. One of the biggest changes we’ve seen in Melbourne is how potential buyers perceive the value of a home based on the property styling. Home staging is one way to go, this when you hire a property stylist to stage your home with furniture, usually they will do a free consultation. The other option is to work with what you already have by decluttering and home styling with your current furniture.
With so many homes for sale at any one time, having the ability to stand out from the crowd will always put your property ahead of the pack when it comes to capturing buyers. Property staging is a great way to separate your property and give your buyers a better idea of how they will live there. Buyer’s these days can sometimes find it very hard to see past clutter or mess and this can either make them feel a little claustrophobic in your home if it is overly cluttered or feel that the property hasn’t been maintained well if it’s messy or unclean.
Before you begin your sale campaign, make sure you’ve done everything you can to get the best price. When you sell your property, it’s worth investing time and money into what will maximise your sale price. This is such a large transaction that even the smallest detail can make a major difference in the outcome. One extra buyer in competition win you thousands, if not, tens of thousands of dollars, so why would you take the risk by not getting your property properly prepared.
