I am a strong advocate of professional property styling. Properties sell faster and for more when they are sympathetically furnished. I speak from experience when I sold my last property. I always thought I had a good eye when it came to interior decorating.
However after calling in a property styling professional she was able to add the finishing touches. As the saying goes “it’s the little things that count”. And let me tell you when it comes to selling your home this is definitely true!
I also saw this time and time again when selling apartments especially in Melbourne’s CBD. Most are unfurnished. The few that were furnished with display furniture always sold first. The property styling or display element certainly makes a difference between an empty house and a home. You should not ignore this.
There will be times where you don’t have all the right furniture to present a home to its best advantage. If you only require a particular piece and could use it in the future, it is worth buying. Alternatively you could borrow from someone. However, an easy solution exists in renting the furniture. Especially if it’s a rental property and you don’t have the furniture at all.
There are many companies that rent out furniture professionally for property styling. And most can provide matching accessories. They deliver the furniture, set it up and take it away after the sale. To give you a rough estimate it costs around $5000 a month to adequately furnish and style an average sized property for a month or for a typical auction campaign period. If a property passes in at Auction the vendor can pay to house the furniture for a longer period until the property is sold.
When it comes to home styling a professional in home styling can organise everything. From listing defects to arranging & organising the appropriate furniture to be delivered.
