So, a property styling company telling you you need to get your home styled. It’s a trick right? Or is it… Lets look at the stats.
Styling your home isn’t just about making it pretty, it allows potential buyers to picture their life in a new home. Potential buyers should walk into a professionally styled home and be inspired and comfortable. Rather than walking into somebody else’s home, or an empty house, they are walking into a home they can picture themselves living in. Getting your home professionally styled can also be beneficial for custom and high end homes. This will help you sell a lifestyle, rather than just a home.
Property styling can boost the price of your home by up to 12% while only costs between 1.5-2% of your homes value. You may outlay $4000 and get a return of $16,000 to $20,000. 98% of real estate agents recommend property styling because they see how it can effect your property, especially in a buyers market. Home stylists want your home to sell as fast as you do so they can move on to styling the next property, houses that have been professionally styled sell on an average of 10 days compared to the Australian average of 85 days!
Property styling can range on price depending on what service you’re looking for. A complete package involves getting all new furniture, accessories and everything else into your house once it’s been emptied. This often looks the best, but if you find a good stylist, you’ll be amazed at what they can do with your own furniture! An accessories only package means they will come into you home, declutter, and style your existing furniture with their accessories.
