The hardest thing about selling your home is drawing a line in the sand and deciding what you can do yourself and what you should hire professionals for.
The bottom line is trying to get the biggest return on your home as possible. At times this can mean making savings throughout the sale campaign wherever you can.
The tough truth is for the most of it you have to spend money to make money, which can be a hard pill to swallow if you don’t have the money to spend. Something we can assure, is that an investment with South Coast Property Styling is set to guarantee an increased expected return on your property.
A recent project of ours in Nowra after being styled only remained on the market for an incredible three days and sold for over $75,000 above the asking price. This is a return of Investment (ROI) 15 times higher than that of which they devoted to South Coast Property Styling. Another project in Gerringong, while remaining on the market for a little longer, under the auction received an astounding $140,000 over the asking price. This is a massive ROI of 24 times that of which they spent. These figures don’t lie.
Our professional service offers so much more than a few lounges and bedside tables, but a team of cultured, au courant stylists with over two decades of collective experience. When trends and styles are constantly changing, knowing what is appealing and how to successfully create that appeal is harder to achieve than you think.
Our innate ability to create cohesive havens from the front gate to the dinner plates is second to none. A survey conducted by Coldwell Banker Real Estate Corp, showed that staged properties spent half as much time on the market than their non-staged counterparts.
The National Association of Realtors (NAR) also state that the longer a house remains on the market, the more likely its asking price is expected to drop. The Real Estate Staging Association in (2011) gives great insight into the science of why professional property styling is important.
Homes staged AFTER the listing sold in 198 days (156 days left un-staged), while homes staged PRIOR to listing sold in 42 days. Homes staged prior to the listing photographed much better as well, creating a better online presence and lasting first impressions (52% of home buyers start their search online- NAR 2012).
After establishing some publicity from your listing, your staged property will work wonders in creating that ‘WOW’ factor on open days and inspections.
