If you are among the wisest of home sellers in the greater Sydney area, you’ve already decided to seek the help of a professional home stager. You know that in the world of real estate, especially here, the key is to do everything possible to sell your property quickly and at the best price possible. Home styling services are the way to accomplish a top-notch sale for a small investment.

Property styling services don’t begin and end with putting some furniture into a vacant house and hoping for the best. Property styling professionals have thousands of other tricks up their collective sleeves and are willing to help you come up with a plan that will take your sale over the top. You can and should consult with your home stager about problem areas within your house. Rather than simply trying to take attention away from the less than perfect parts of your house, allow your stager to suggest other alternatives.

If your kitchen lacks pizazz, perhaps your stager will suggest painting the cabinets and updating the hardware. Of course you could make the best of what you already have, but why not at least consider some of the alternatives. If you don’t have the time or any interest in taking on such a DIY project, your stager can suggest painters who can do the job for the best price possible.

In the world of design today, kitchen colours can go far beyond the citrus colours of yesteryear. We’ve even seen kitchens beautifully done in purple – not that we would suggest such a bold colour choice, particularly in a house for sale. Nevertheless, our point is simply that wringing every bit of experience and inspiration out of your home stager is practically your duty. (Wringing may be too strong a word. Coaxing is a better alternative.) The beauty of working with a creative individual is the wonderful way sensational ideas just spring forth from the well of their inspiration.

Remember, investments made in updating or upgrading your kitchen can often improve the sale price enough to pay for your outlay. At the very least, remember that anything that can be done to make a house sell quickly should also be a big part of the savings calculation. A house that lingers on the market for weeks or months costs the owner in a very real way. Better to find and maximise the WOW factor to your own advantage.

Don’t stop with kitchens. Bathrooms, hallways, and bedrooms can benefit from your home stager’s creativity. We lay-folk may know what pleases us, but stagers know what pleases almost everybody.
Industry-wide, home stagers make it their business to know what design trends mesh with the thinking of which niche in the real estate market. Through tireless research and study, home stagers have access to information that makes them look a bit like psychics. They put this information to work in ways that can surprise us and result in bigger, faster sales. Knowing the buyer makes for solid connections to the house-shopper’s emotional core, and that’s where buying decisions are made.

It’s a very wise homeowner who gives the home stager as much latitude as budget permits. Giving free reign to a gifted property styling services provider can conjure up astonishing results that can bring your property to the top of the heap in terms of listed properties.

Never forget that real estate agents are very interested in selling property. When a remarkable property comes along – one that is cleverly dressed and captivatingly unique – selling agents flock to show it. When your home is prepared in such a way, it will spend more time in the spotlight generating more and better offers. Houses like this have been known to sell for seven to 12 percent higher than the original asking price.

Find an excellent property staging firm, and let them work their creative magic on your home. That’s the way real estate is sold today. Your reward will be very real indeed.
At Urban Chic Property Styling, we have been working magic in real estate for decades. Before we were engaged in providing property styling services, we were selling agents. That means we can approach your property from a perspective most stagers don’t understand. Allow us to bring our talent and skills to your house. You’ll be glad you did.
