7 REASONS TO STYLE YOUR HOME
1. Styling guarantees a great first impression.
First impressions last and lasting impressions lead to a sale and (if you'll forgive one more cliche that happens to be true) you never get a second chance to make a first impression! It is a fact that most buyers make up their mind within seconds of entering a property. Styling your home will have your buyers at "Hello".
2. Styling sets your property apart.
In a market that is more competitive than ever, it's more important than ever to stand out from the crowd. Styling your property will give it a style of its own. 90% of buyers now decide which houses to view based on photographs on websites and advertising. Styling will ensure your home stands out from the rest and gets put on buyer's must-see lists.
3. Styling "neutralises" your home.
"Neutral" certainly does not mean bland (far from it), it simply means styled to appeal to the widest possible audience. Remember that buyers do not want to buy your home - they want to buy your house and then make it their home. A "neutral" home helps potential buyers visualise themselves and their things in your home.
4. Styling will help you achieve the highest possible price.
In an article on styling in the Weekend Australian in 2011, leading real estate agent, John McGrath, commented that almost 25% of home sellers are engaging a home stylist and netting a 5% to 10% increase in the sale price. In a more recent survey of top LJ Hooker agents, the estimate came in even higher at 7.5% to 12.5%.
5. Styling will help sell your property faster.
Real estate agents in Australia report that styled homes sell at least 3 times faster than non-styled homes. A 2009 survey of 150 Australian homes found that the styled homes sold on average in 9 days as compared to 22 days for non-styled homes. A recent US study found that styled homes spent 73% less time on the market.
6. Styling can help you physically and mentally prepare for moving.
During the styling process, you can start to pack up, store and/or move your personal and unnecessary items. If furniture and accessories are hired, you can move yours into your new home and be settled in a lot sooner than expected. Styling can also help you detach from your home as you start seeing it purely as an product for sale, soon to be sold.
7. Styling offers a significant return on investment.
Think of styling as an investment. It is reported that, in Australia, property styling boosts your selling price by $3 for every $1 spent. This ROI is even higher if you take into consideration the savings involved in a quicker sale. Every week that your property sits on the market there are mounting bills, rates, insurance, listing fees, payments etc. not to mention the emotional costs.
