First Impressions are Everything

Ensuring that your home is immaculately presented, low maintenance and creates a lasting first impression is key to selling or renting a home. Utilising a complete and professional styling package is an investment that pays for itself, resulting in a much faster and higher return. It also can prevent the necessity for drastic price reductions later on. Creating a Home to Love is more than just decorating, its transforming the interior and exterior of your home which sparks a positive emotional response from the right buyer or tenant. There is also the added benefit of offering the buyer or tenant the opportunity of moving into a fully furnished and styled home so they can start enjoying the balanced lifestyle the home presents. With a complete Inside-Out Styling Package and personalised approach that is minimalist, light and fresh you will stand out in any market as well as from the competition.

A Home Lifestyle Checklist takes you through each step to prepare your home for sale or rent, or allows you to fall in love with your home all over again.

  1. Plan Ahead – Obtain an appraisal, hold a garage sale, make a to do list, engage a professional Agent and a Home Stylist that is also experienced in the real estate industry
  2. Clean, Declutter & Depersonalise – a spring clean, repair and storage guide can help prepare your home for the amazing transformation that is about to take place.
  3. Maximise Street Appeal – making an entrance and adding flower power as we like to say, entices the buyer or tenant take a leap of faith with the excitement to step inside.
  4. Appeal to the Senses – Keep senses neutral with fresh, clean and subtle smells. Ensure your home is at a suitable and comfortable temperature with either heating, fresh airflow or air conditioning particularly prior to open homes. Set the scene with cosy throws, rugs and mood lighting to create a welcoming ambience.

Having a professional style your home through buyer’s eyes ensures the important areas of your home are presented, special features are enhanced, increased traffic flow and sparks joy in the heart of those viewing. Staging a home correctly allows a buyer or tenant to vision themselves living in the home and enjoying the lifestyle it has to offer. So utulise an Interior Designer or Property Stylist whenever you can as they have a natural eye for what looks good and in trend.
