Have you ever considered hiring a property stylist to help maximise the value of your home before selling? There are countless benefits to working with a property stylist, so choosing the right person for the job is crucial when it comes to getting your home ready for a competitive market.
Not only will your property stylist thoroughly inspect your household to identify both the positive and negative aspects of the home, but they’ll also make strategic furniture and styling recommendations that are uniquely tailored to your space.
A property stylist is there to take the stress away from selling your home, by preparing your property for a quick and profitable sale. There are many unique skills that make a property stylist successful - a creative eye for space and design, ongoing research into the current real estate market, and even colour psychology all come into play.
Choosing the right property stylist can mean a much higher return on the sale value of your home, so it’s important to do the research first to find the best property stylist for you. Here are just a few tips to keep in mind, in order to get the most out of your investment!
Check their track record
The role of a property stylist is essentially to increase the value of your home through clever floor plans and furniture and decor choices. So it goes without saying that you should always check the track record of a property stylist before making a commitment, to gauge if their work has provided a return on investment for their previous clients.
A great place to look here is the testimonials from previous clients. Check the website and Facebook reviews of your property stylist to see what kind of feedback they have received in the past. Take note of any feedback that specifically mentions a return on investment or a quick sale - for example, here at Tailored Space, 94% of the properties we style end up selling within the first 6 weeks of the sale campaign. These kind of solid reviews should help you feel confident that the property stylist is a true professional.
Check their portfolio
A good property stylist should be able to work with any kind of home. Each home is unique, which means that the furniture and decor used to furnish the space will need to be specifically chosen to compliment the property.
With this said, it’s important to check the portfolio of your property stylist to see if they have the ability to work with a range of different homes. There is definitely no “one size fits all” approach when it comes to property styling, so a good portfolio should showcase a variety of different styles and furniture packages for each individual space.
Make sure you check the quality of the furniture and decor used too - are the furnishings old and dated, or contemporary and modern? These details can all have an impact on the sale value of your home.
Check their pricing
Another detail to check when it comes to choosing a property stylist is their pricing. Remember that property styling is designed to give you a huge return on your investment. If the pricing seems dirt-cheap and too good to be true, you might find yourself signing up for low quality furniture and a “one size fits all” approach rather than a customised package designed specifically for your home.
With this said, a good property stylist should be able to make recommendations on furniture hire packages to work with your budget. It’s best to get in touch for a consultation and quote so that you can make an informed decision!
