When selling your property you usually only get one chance at maximising the price. Making the most of the sale is all about getting buyers emotionally involved in the property. Buyers will always pay a premium for the home that looks and feels amazing!
Your stylist will make recommendations regarding de-cluttering, colour schemes, furniture placement and /or complete room makeovers to enhance the visual appeal of the property. Another name for Property Styling is Home Styling or Home Staging. Sydney wide, our Styling specialists will ensure great value for money and a great result for your property. Clever application of colour and design principles by a trained Stylist can transform the perception of an ordinary home into an extraordinary one. Even interior designers often call in the assistance of a professional property stylist to help style the property to a target market. Our stylists are fully trained professionals in colour and design, specialising in Interior Styling.
At Urban Chic we stock a large collection of furniture and furnishings and specialise in full home Styling packages to suit all budgets.
We have furnished everything from studio apartments to large, multi-million dollar luxury homes.
Our goal is to achieve a maximum market price for all of our valued clients in the shortest possible time. As many of our clients have testified, the results speak for themselves. There’s a good reason why Urban Chic has more 5 Star Google reviews than any other Styling company in Australia.
With the internet now being the window to the property market, stunning photos are imperative if you are to set your home above the competition. The Style of your property needs to demonstrate clean uncluttered lines, the optimum use of space and professional use of colour. Our stylists will style each room accordingly so that each offers its own definitive appeal to the potential buyer. With so much competition in the market place, and limited time available, this can often be the determining factor for buyers in choosing which properties to inspect. As the saying goes, you only have one chance to make a great first impression!
So how does the process work? Firstly, your home stylist will inspect the property at a mutually suitable time, either with the owner and/or the agent. We can also provide quotations from a floor plan. Recommendations will then be made with regard to any repair work, painting or de-cluttering that could be done. Then, depending whether the property is vacant or partially furnished, the number of rooms to be furnished and the Style best suited to the target market will be discussed. The Stylist will take measurements in order to ensure the proportions of the furniture and furnishings including art work to be installed are in keeping with the space and the traffic flow of buyers during inspection. It is also necessary to check the access to the property and anticipate any issues before they arise. Sizes of any doorways, stairwells or lifts where some larger items of furniture might need fit will be assessed in advance of delivery. Some photographs will also be taken to show existing colour schemes, positioning of windows and doors and any other features like fireplaces or built in cabinets which will influence the best placement of furniture,
Following inspection we will provide a complete itemised quote of the proposed furniture and furnishings to be installed along with images of property staging that has been done for other properties, so that everyone can be assured of the quality of the end result. We own, store and maintain all our stock in order to keep it in excellent condition and to be able to deliver the very best. This also enables us to co-ordinate our soft furnishings and colour schemes in house and not be reliant on what is available from exterior furniture hire companies. This results in being able to supply a totally ‘bespoke’ and professional Styling service to our clients with the highest quality furnishings. Our furniture hire Sydney service is available within the Greater Sydney area.
The furniture hire Sydney wide period for our professional home staging is generally for 4 weeks plus you will receive an additional 2 weeks complimentary. Once the quotation has been accepted, your property stylist then meticulously plans the job, including placement of all furniture and décor items down to the last cushion/throw rug. Stock is allocated and the delivery is scheduled for a suitable date and time ahead of photography. So much of the success of Styling is in this planning phase. This is where the experience and the expertise of the Stylists really comes into play. A well thought out, comprehensive scheme that is visually appealing to the widest number of prospective buyers viewing the property is essential to the success of your campaign. Owing to our Senior Stylist Juliana Gowen, with a previous career spanning over 25 years successfully selling residential real estate in Sydney across all price ranges, Urban Chic is able to bring another point of difference to our service. Having marketed and sold property to hundreds of buyers, Juliana’s trained eye is able to assess and style to attract the widest target market for each property. This unrivalled level of experience has paid huge dividends for many of our clients with properties selling well above market expectations owing to the amount of competition created by targeted buying groups.

When real estate staging, the installation day is usually a very busy one for the Stylist with packing the furnishings at the warehouse, supervision of carefully loading the truck, travel to the property, unloading and instructing the removalists on exact furniture placement of every piece. Then the Stylist’s work actually begins in earnest. Rugs are rolled, lamps are lit, cushions are fluffed and art work hung. Not to mention the ironing of all bedding, polishing of furnishings and the perfect placement of the décor items all staged to achieve that elusive “Wow” factor. The property stylist’s reward….. a few choice words of approval from the client…”I never thought it could look this good!”
So what happens next? If the property sells quickly and don’t be surprised if it does, we have definitely achieved what we set out to do! A client would only accept an early offer if they were more than happy with the price, so it’s a win-win for all concerned.
To Style or not to Style…is it really worth it? Absolutely it is! Using every possible way to maximise price when selling a major asset is a very wise move. The potential financial gains far outweigh the cost of Styling and at Urban Chic, we receive thank you after thank you for a job well done achieving amazing results for our clients. We receive repeat referral business from all the agents we work with as they know we will help then achieve the optimum price for the property, leading to very happy vendors. It’s smiles all round when you Style Professionally!
So take advantage of our experience and expertise to ensure you capture the widest amount of interest and the highest possible price in the shortest possible time for your property.
