ADVICE + EFFORT = FASTER SALES

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:




Victoria's recommendations:

  • 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*
