Property Styling has increased in popularity dramatically in recent years. So what’s the benefit of getting your home professionally styled ready for sale? Best presentation of the property When it comes to selling your home (especially a home that you’ve been living in for some time), it can be difficult to step back and see it with fresh eyes – as a buyer will see it. A Property Stylist will bring an independent and expert perspective to presenting your property to its full potential. A Stylist will take into account your home’s best features whilst optimising the use of spaces throughout the property. You’ll also save on buying props, artwork and furniture by loaning beautiful, on-trend pieces from your Stylist. Targeted appeal Property Styling is not just about making your house look beautiful. It’s about understanding who your house is likely to appeal to – a young family, a retired couple, holiday homers…etc. and then tailoring the styling and creating a lifestyle that will appeal to that target buyer. The aim of property styling is to make it as easy as possible for the buyer to imagine themselves moving in which, in turn, establishes that all important emotional connection. Stand out from the crowd It’s no secret that people are more time poor than ever … and home buyers are no different. Make sure you make the cut for an open house viewing by ensuring your online and brochure listings pack a punch. The professional photos will make all the difference of driving people through the door of your first open house. Boost your sale A professionally styled home will generate significantly more interested buyers, take less time to sell and generate a higher sale price. Be sure to do your homework and speak to the Property Stylist you’re considering about their credentials; what similar properties have they styled in your area recently, how long have they taken to sell and what have they sold for? A good Property Stylist will be able to show you examples of their work and let the numbers do the talking.
