Selling your Western Sydney property can be a walk in the park these days because of the red-hot property market in New South Wales. Due to the advantages affordability brings, property styling Western Suburbs has grown wings, and those who make their bread and butter staging homes for sale will tell you that now is absolutely the time to prepare to list your home for sale.
If you ever had concerns about the cost of professionally styling your home, you can dismiss those totally now. The cost of home staging is almost always paid for completely by the increase in sale price the staging precipitates but in this market the results are even more dramatic. The real estate market in the western and southern suburbs is so hot, thanks to the many benefits of the area – especially the low prices — your sale price has nowhere to go but up.
The Clean Slate
Perhaps the least understood benefit of home staging is one that nobody notices. That would be the way in which professional home designers can wipe the slate clean and remove reminders that the home in question ever belonged to anybody else. These professionals know that buyers don’t want to be reminded of anybody else’s happy memories in a house they hope to own. If a sale is to go through without a hitch, there needs to be a clean slate and a professional home stylist can make that happen.
Evicting the Ghosts
Generally, home stylists begin the process of staging a home by decluttering and depersonalising the property. They will encourage home-owners to ruthlessly remove all family photos and personal memorabilia, but they don’t stop there. They will also instruct you to eliminate the evidence of your own personal style in terms of paint colours and other design choices.
The professional who specialises in property styling Western Suburbs knows that the key here is to provide a launching pad for the buyer’s imagination. That launch should not be impeded in any way by the ghosts of owners past.
Move in Ready
Your professional sales team will help you through the process of making your home, not just a blank slate, but also a well-maintained structure that comes with no surprises or expensive repairs lurking on the horizon. Buyers want to imagine themselves moving into your home bright and early tomorrow morning without the first thing on their ‘to do’ list.
A good home staging team will make sure that all the critical systems in your home work well. They will be certain that there are no odd noises or small warnings to be found when a buyer visits. The garbage disposal unit won’t ‘clunk’. The shower door will close smoothly. The kitchen vent hood will work quickly and efficiently. These kinds of things will reassure the buyer that this is a safe undertaking.
Love at First Sight
It may come as a surprise to you that nearly all buying decisions are made on the strength of emotion. We may scour the internet for information on the best-rated blender on the market today, but we will buy the one that will be prettiest on our kitchen counter. The same is true of homes.
Scientists have recently concluded that the emotion factor may only represent about 10 percent of the human brain, but it almost always drives the choices we make. For that reason, your professional design team will use their extensive research relative to buyers in order to dress your home perfectly. Their goal is to steal the heart of the broadest range of buyers possible. When they do their job well, large offers come quickly. (Once a buyer falls in love with your property, they won’t let it go easily. They will even step outside their financial comfort zone in order to win the prize.) Bidding wars are not uncommon when it comes to a well-staged property. It’s for this reason that professionally staged homes frequently sell for more than the original asking price.
