Home staging is a proven way to help sell real estate or property faster and for bigger returns. Home Moving Planners are one of the few home staging companies Melbourne who can help you when selling your home if you are on a budget!
We can of course bring in our own furniture if needed, but we can also restyle and reinvent rooms using your exiting furniture, substantially reducing the cost of staging a house for sale.
Staged homes sell for more
Growing research suggests that when considering property for sale, a professionally styled home sells faster and at higher prices. One study in the USA compared the average sale price and speed of sale of staged homes to un-staged homes and found that:
- Homes that had been staged sold twice as fast as a non – staged homes .. ie. staged homes sell faster!
- Homes that had been staged sold for 6.9% more, on average, than a non – staged home
So, when you are planning to sell your house, the key to staging your home for sale is to create a look that will easily enable potential buyers to see themselves living in your property.
Buyers want to see “SPACE”. Rooms are presented so as to make the room look as large as possible. We do this by removing unnecessary furniture and clutter from the room and try to maximize the light in rooms by not blocking any windows, this also creates the visualization of more “space”.
The trick is to coax the buyer into feeling as though the home is already theirs.
It’s smartest to modestly furnish and decorate your home and this is where a property stylist really helps. Unfortunately many people do not know how to go about decorating and staging their homes for sale. They often become comfortable and used to the way the house has been set up, that they are unable to see their house and furniture set up in another way. You do not want viewing you house to become distracting. Those bright floral 90’s bed linen may have worked perfectly and comfortably for you, but it isn’t allowing the potential buyer to see anything but your personality in the house.
It is best to lightly furnish houses, as these feel homely and inviting and allow the potential buyer to imagine themselves living there.
Make the house looked lived in
The real estate buyer should get a sense of what each room could be used for and what size furniture could fit in the space, and make comparison between their furnishing and yours to determine if the property will suit their lifestyle. Vacant properties lack this atmosphere. The key is to make the house look tasteful, liveable, homely and attractive, whilst also maximizing each room’s space and light.
Luckily this can be done inexpensively through simple furnishings. As well as working with the available furniture and furnishings, at Home Moving Planners we will likely bring in additional pieces such as pot plants, occasional tables, cushions, fabrics, mirrors and lighting. We use these ‘props’ to achieve a welcoming effect in every room, by softening or hiding undesirable elements and highlighting the more appealing aspects of your interiors. Were necessary we can also bring in our furniture to show off your property in its best light whilst reducing unnecessary costs for hiring furniture.
A well-presented house could potentially (and often does) achieve an extra 5-10% in sale price. Bare in mind that 5% on a $600,000 home is a gain of $30,000. Therefore the cost of our home staging services are really quite minimal to the potential increase in income you could achieve from the sale of your property.
