Styling Your House Melbourne

Styling your house for sale can be a difficult and stressful experience if you are unsure what to do. What does ‘styling to sell your home‘ involve and what should be done? Should the house be sold empty or furnished?

Some people mistakenly believe that selling a completely empty house will increase their sale price over a furnished house. They believe that it allows prospective buyers to visualize what their furniture would look like in it and to imagine what they could do with the space.

However a complete lack of furnishings makes the house feel bare (and feeling is one of the most important components of a home buyers decision). Yet on the other side of the continuum, a fully lived in home can feel cluttered and give off too much of the owners personality. Do not underestimate the power of imagination. The way a house is furnished and the way a house is styled for sale is an incredibly strong selling tactic and a great deal to do with the way a potential buyer feels when visiting the home.

The trick with styling houses for sale is to coax the buyer into feeling as though the home is already theirs. It’s smartest to modestly furnish and decorate your home. Unfortunately many people do not know how to go about decorating and styling their homes for sale. They often become comfortable and used to the way the house has been set up, that they are unable to see their house and furniture set up in another way. You do not want viewing you house to become distracting. Those bright floral 90’s bed linen may have worked perfectly and comfortably for you, but it isn’t allowing the potential buyer to see anything but your personality in the house.

As specialist house stylists Melbourne, we know that it is best to lightly furnish houses, as these feel homely an inviting and allow the potential buyer to imagine themselves living there. The buyer should get a sense of what each room could be used for and what size furniture could fit in the space, and make comparison between their furnishing and yours to determine if the property will suit their lifestyle. Vacant properties lack this atmosphere. The key is to make the house look tasteful, livable, homely and attractive, whilst also maximizing each room’s space and light.

Luckily this can be done inexpensively through simple furnishings. As well as working with the available furniture and furnishings, at Home Moving Planners we will bring in additional pieces such as pot plants, occasional tables, cushions, fabrics, mirrors and lighting. We use these ‘props’ to achieve a welcoming effect in every room, by softening or hiding undesirable elements and highlighting the more appealing aspects of your interiors. Were necessary we can also bring in our furniture to show off your property in its best light whilst reducing unnecessary costs for hiring furniture.
