Get your asking price
Once you have taken the decision the sell – your home ceases to be your cosy nest filled with all your personal possessions, photo's etc, - it becomes an asset that you want the best possible price for.
If you were selling your car - you wouldn't advertise it and then invite buyers to look at it when it's dirty with muddy carpets and sweet wrappers and fast food cartons on the floor. Selling a property is just the same and by presenting it in the most appealing way you can, you have the best chance possible of achieving your asking price.
Let us do the work
While it's true that most properties would benefit from the advice of a home stager, clearly some home owners would like more help.
It may be that cleaning, removing personal items and rearranging furniture and day to day living items may be all that's needed but sometimes it can involve some financial investment like painting, improving the outside areas and adding soft furnishings, wall art, mirrors and plants to give potential buyers an idea of what their new home would look like. Home stagers have a large inventory of "props" – throws, cushions, lamps, rugs etc that can transform rooms in a very short time.
Your home stager and estate agent work as a team to achieve the best price they can for you. Once you have committed to selling your property – your home stager will visit you in your home and have a chat about what is required.
Home staging can cost as little as £250.
