Property Styling and Home Staging for Real Estate
Real estate agents regard property styling as essential, with ability to increase value and reduce days spent on the market. Designed to transform your home and wow prospective buyers, this process is made easy with Louise’s expert advice on how to maximise the appeal of each space in your home.
A presale consultation takes place in your home and usually takes about an hour depending on the size of your home. A walk-through of the whole home to appreciate style, layout, and flow. Existing furnishings, lighting, accessories and colour schemes are assessed.
A detailed action plan is created for each individual room and outside spaces with suggestions which may include:
- Decluttering, cleaning and repairs
- What to remove (to storage, sell or give away)
- What to bring in (rentals and/or purchases)
- Placement of furniture, artworks and accessories
- Painting (we will suggest colours)
- Minor refurbishments such as window treatments and bedding
- Ways to improve street appeal
A list of qualified resources e.g. painters, handymen can be supplied, if required
Louise’s priority is to use existing furnishings, keeping costs to the minimum and she will only suggest changes that make a dramatic improvement to the space.
Designed to enhance existing interior styling and furnishings, partial home staging may include rearranging, removing or adding pieces of furniture and key accessories to maximise impact and improve flow between areas. Carefully selected accessories may be used to highlight entries, reflect light using large mirrors, add artwork to blank walls, create warmth with soft lighting and tie in colour schemes with throws and rugs. Partial Staging begins with a Pre-sale consultation to ensure an accurate assessment of requirements prior to submitting an itemised quotation.
Vacant homes often take longer to sell as it is difficult for potential buyers to visualise their life in your house when rooms are empty. Rooms can appear smaller and darker and defects stand out as they become the focus of your attention with nothing else to look at. Louise’s professional home staging will transform your house into a home, make it stand out from the crowd and showcase its best features for sale.
Full staging includes:
- A site visit to measure and record existing fixed elements and colours.
- Written, itemised quotation submitted promptly after the site visit.
- Delivery, installation and collection of furniture/accessories package for a standard 5-week period. Longer hire is available.
