In the last blog we talked about how property staging can make a big difference, (click here if you missed it) but sometimes you need a little extra.
Sometimes there are things you can do to enhance your property. It may take a little time & effort but the results will be worth every penny, as you should sell faster & achieve a higher price. This means, less mortgage payments, less bill payments on the house you want to move from and premium offers.
We should give these sellers a gold star, they listened, and they achieved!!! So how did they do it?
Step one: Advice
Step two: Effort
This charming little property had been up for sale for 2 years, with two different agents. It wasn’t a new agent the house needed, it was a little VMAGIC.
After just a fortnight… look at the results:
- Paint over the stripey wallpaper and continue the neutral theme that was already on the other three walls.
- Add a mirror (that you can take with you when you move)
- Clear the clutter from the shelves and sideboard
- Add some cushions
- Add a throw on the darkest chair at the opposite end of the room to brighten the shot
- Turn on the lamps and lights for the photographs
TIME ON THE MARKET BEFORE: 2 years
FIRST VIEWING: 5 days from launch
OFFER TIME: after 8 Short Weeks
SUCCESS RATING: 5*
Take one bedroom…
We were commissioned to do the full home staging on behalf of the client, as they were unable too due to poor health. It cost a little extra, but it meant she got the sale she had been waiting for. What have we done here? Can you guess?
- Moved the bed into a better position (using brut strength, it was a very heavy bed!)
- Dressed with new sheets (from our staging Stock)
- Added cushions (from our staging stock)
- Added interesting pictures to liven the room
- Added a throw at the base of the bed (from our staging stock)
- Brought in two bedside cabinets (from our staging stock)
TIME ON THE MARKET BEFORE: 9 weeks
TIME ON THE MARKET AFTER: 2 weeks
OFFER: after just two weeks from re-launch
SUCCESS RATING: 5*
