When it comes to property styling, there are a few common misconceptions out there which can lead to some confusion regarding how home staging actually works. And after being involved in many successful projects from the Gold Coast to Brisbane and Byron Bay, we wanted to set the record straight and debunk some of these myths based on our own industry experiences!
So if you’re currently in the market to sell but finding yourself unsure or confused about the real benefits of property styling, keep reading for the truth about home staging and the incredible results that can be achieved by using this service.
Myth #1: Property styling is too expensive
Many people assume that home styling is just another expensive and unnecessary cost throughout the process of selling a property. But, you’d be surprised how affordable it can actually be!
Our property styling packages start from as little as $295/week for a unit or apartment, or from $575/week for a home. We have a range of flexible short-term hire solutions - whether you require your property to be fully furnished from scratch, or just need those finishing touches to bring the look together. We can work with the existing furniture at your home, or deck out a completely vacant space - we tailor our packages to suit your own budget and requirements.
It’s important to acknowledge the return on your investment, too. The benefits of property styling to help achieve your maximum sale price far outweighs the initial investment.
Think about it this way: would you rather invest in property styling and maximise the value of your home, leading to a quicker and more profitable sale? Or will you have to reduce the asking price by thousands because your home isn’t appealing to the right buyers in the right timeframe?
Myth #2: Property styling is only for high-end, luxury homes
The myth that property styling is reserved only for luxury homes is completely false! Whether you own a one-bedroom studio apartment or a 6-bedroom waterfront estate, every home needs to be presented in the best way possible to achieve the best price.
In actual fact, it can be the older, smaller or more dated homes that experience the biggest benefits from property styling services - helping to improve the appeal and showcase the best features of the home.
Myth #3: Property styling is too difficult to organise
We make the property styling process super simple for our clients with a hands-on approach to our work, so this misconception couldn't be further from the truth. If anything, we help to take a huge weight off our client's shoulders by taking care of their home staging needs from beginning to end.
If you're considering staging your own home for the market, rest assured that our dedicated and professional property stylists will organise your custom furniture plan, deliver and install the goods, and pick up once complete. You won’t have to lift a finger!
Myth #4: Property styling doesn’t influence a buyer’s opinion
Actually, studies have shown that potential clients will decide how they feel about your home within the first 10 seconds. Presenting your home in the best possible light is crucial in order to allow buyers to visualise themselves living in the space, which in turn helps them form an emotional connection with the property.
Through our previous property styling projects, we have clearly seen the incredible transformation of each home leading to extremely positive results. This all comes down to appealing to buyers through a practical, aesthetically pleasing and thoughtfully furnished space.
In our opinion, property styling really is an essential investment for any homeowner. If you’re hoping for a quick and profitable sale, styling your property for the market is a no-brainer to maximise the value and appeal of your home.
