Selling a house the creative way
Property styling will help to sell your property in the same way that dressing professionally for a job interview will help to sell yourself.
If the interior areas and garden are looking their best, you'll be that much closer to persuading that potential buyer.
According to a survey of the top agents in the Australian LJ Hooker network, styling your home can boost sales prices from 7.5 per cent to 12.5 per cent.
Of the agents surveyed, 87 per cent believed that property styling will increase the sale price of a home, and about half said that they thought it would bring in more offers.
If you're not too sure where to start however, you've got a couple of options to help you out.
As the Real Estate Institute of New South Wales will tell you, most real estate agents can give simple tips on how to style your property in a way that will maximise its sales potential.
The creatively minded can have a go at sprucing up their own home with a few well-chosen licks of paint and some coordinated homewares.
Or for the serious jobs, professional property stylers can take a look at your property with an objective eye and make a real difference to any residential property, whether you're looking to sell or not!
