Whether it’s just a Room Refresh or a complete Re-Design of your personal space, Airbnb let or rental accommodation.
The design process begins with a home consultation to get a feel for the space and a thorough understanding of your lifestyle and design preferences. We will discuss colour, floor finishes, window treatments, furniture requirements and any elements you may wish to retain or replace in order to achieve your ultimate objectives within your budget. Thereafter a follow up appointment to present my ideas in the form of a mood board. Once you are completely happy with the design, I will assist you in bringing the various elements together or oversee the entire project management on your behalf.
“Home Staging is the art of presenting a property for sale in such a way that it appeals to the majority of buyers and increases buyer appeal”.
FIRST IMPRESSIONS COUNT – in order for a property to stand out from the competition, it must have the WOW factor that buyers are looking for.
Poor presentation is one of the main reasons properties fail to sell timeously at close to the asking price. Staging is all about showing a property at its absolute best to appeal to the largest number of potential buyers. While staging will not increase the value of a property, it will result in a quicker sale at a better price and will prevent the seller from having to reduce the original price while the property stays on the market unsold.
Staging a property before it is listed is therefore a wise business decision and eliminates the risk of not making that vital first impression on any potential buyers.
The staging process begins with the seller emotionally detaching themselves in order to turn a home back into a house. This is followed by de-cluttering and de-personalising which could include repairing, replacing and cleaning where appropriate. The property is then styled to show off its best features.
Buyers fall in love with a property because they can imagine themselves living there and are attracted by the lifestyle appeal of the property. A property that is ready to move into will grab the buyers attention and provide peace of mind knowing that all repairs and updates have already been done and they do not need to invest more money into the property.
I help you to think like a buyer when selling your home by guiding you through simple and inexpensive changes that add lasting value to your property.
