The Benefits of Property Styling | 24th of April, 2020
Selling your home can be stressful, especially if you are considering selling in the year of 2020. What a crazy year it has been and we are only in April! Although things are up in the air at the moment in the midst of this global pandemic, if there is one thing I can still strongly recommend; whether it's for right now, next month, or in the next six months - it's that you should always consider styling your vacant property rather than selling empty.
Why? Well that's simple - a vacant property will not have as much impact as a styled home.
As human beings, we need that emotional connection when making a purchase. Think about it, when you see an ad pop up on your instagram feed, you only click it if it's something you are interested in, right? Well the same thing applies for property listings. When scrolling through the list of current properties for sale, you are very likely to click the links that look appealing to you. It may be that it's the style of house you are looking for or that the initial first photo had you at hello. For whatever reason, the first impression had you click on the link. From there, it's so easy to click through the first few photos and simply say 'nope' and click out of that link. From someone who is constantly on realestate.com.au, I've been there, many times! If you are selling your home, put yourself in the buyers shoes; understand what will attract the current market and educate yourself on how you can achieve the maximum sales result.
If you're considering listing your property for sale, please see below the benefits of Property Styling:
Your Property will appeal to a wider market
When engaging with a Professional Property Stylist, they will understand exactly what furnishings will help appeal to the demographics of the current market. From one glance at your property at the initial quotation, they will be noting down exactly what furniture will help enhance each space and compliment the existing features of the home. Understanding the current trends will help maximise the property's potential and allow for more competition between interested buyers.
Your Property will stand out from the crowd
When your property is professionally styled, your property will stand out amongst other similar homes. As I touched on briefly before, when a buyer creates an emotional connection to the home it can lead to a higher offer from a competitive buyer. Property Stylist's will aim to showcase the lifestyle on offer to appeal to the hearts of buyers so that they can purchase their dream home.
Highlight the scale of each room
When engaging with a Property Stylist, they will select furnishings that help enhance each space. A professional stylist will select the right size bed for each room based on it's size, the right sofa that compliments the open plan layout and carefully selects every detail; from furniture to the decor - to ensure the colours and tones flow from the front to the back door. When walking through a vacant home, for many, it's hard to visualise how the furniture will be spaced out. However when a property is styled, it helps buyers understand the real life scale of the room and visualise their own items in the home.

Distract from any existing imperfections
Having your property staged helps distract the eye from any imperfections that may be sighted immediately if the property was vacant. Distracted by the lifestyle on offer, buyers are likely to overlook minor imperfections that may be existent in the property.
Maximise your sales result
The best part about having your property professionally styled is that it potentially leads to a higher sales. More often than not, our vendors walk away with a result that was beyond their expectations!
One of our recent vendors, Alexandra, from 69 Harding Street in Coburg, mentioned that having the property styled allowed buyers to see the full potential that their property had to offer.
"We were quite stressed due to the crisis occurring however we ended up receiving an offer of $200k over what we were expecting! The styling allowed buyers to see the full potential the home had to offer."
It's important to understand that styling your home is not an expense, it's an investment.
