Beach Living in Sutherland Shire
For those whose sights are set on a more traditional Sydney suburb, take a turn south and shop for homes in Sydney’s Sutherland Shire. Home prices in the Shire are very affordable given the local amenities, so there is considerable movement of homeowners in that direction. That said, if you’re selling in Sutherland Shire, you will be faced with some challenging competition, so do plan to invest wisely in terms of property styling Sutherland Shire.
Of the area itself, some may call it bland. Others call it safe, leafy green, with plenty to see and do. It’s situated just a half-hour’s train ride to the CBD, so the commute to a Sydney job is just long enough to down that takeaway coffee and it’s near some of the most spectacular scenery Greater Sydney has to offer. It’s the perfect place to celebrate the Australian lifestyle, so as you prepare your Sutherland Shire home for sale discuss with your property stylist ways to bring the outside in and make the most of this special place. Perhaps something inspired by beach houses?
Particularly if your home has waterfront views – but even if it doesn’t – this is the perfect place to consider the Hamptons style of home staging.
The Hamptons style combines high-end elegance with casual beach-house flair. Named for the legendary area in New York’s Long Island where the rich and privileged frolic, just the word Hamptons evokes some of the favourite images and emotions that home buyers are seeking.
Most home buyers, and particularly Generations X and Y – currently the largest segment of the home-buying population – want a home that welcomes and shelters them from the woes of the work-a-day world, but they also want to surround themselves with the trappings of wealth and success.
With the images of success firmly around them, they feel closer to their goals and aspirations. The Hamptons style is precisely the prescription for the angst of young, upwardly mobile professionals. Not only is it sophisticated and classic, it’s not at all fussy so the free and easy lifestyle of the new buyer is not at all cramped.
The beachy Hamptons look features the old and the new, crisp white linen slipcovers alongside the old and gently worn quilts that speak of the traditional. The look is friendly and clean, much like the surroundings, so if your property styling Southerland Shire professional thinks a Hamptons house is what you need, jump at it. It says ‘old money’ and buyers love that sense of being on the fast track to boundless achievement.
We know that today’s buyers are very busy people. They want relaxation and warmth in their homes. They also want to believe that the home they choose is ‘move-in ready’. They don’t want to have to paint walls, fix roof tiles, or struggle with an over-furnished home that begs somebody to give it a style of its own. That’s where home stylists come in.
An excellent home stylist will help you to establish a home that isn’t just pretty and appealing, but also obviously well maintained. To a buyer, the security of a well-kept home in terms of repairs and maintenance means more value. If they don’t have to fix it, they won’t make deductions and adjustments when they write their offers — and write offers they will.
Statistics tell us that a professionally staged home will sell faster than others and for a much larger price. To the seller, this is a substantial savings which, paired with the higher selling price, can help to make this real estate transaction all the more profitable.
