The market is hot at the moment and sellers are achieving record prices, however if you’re selling your
family home to downsize, getting the best sales prices for your home can make a big difference to your retirement options. Increasingly
vendors are styling their home when they put it on the market and Marcella Cetinich, styling and decluttering expert from Valiant Interiors,
gives us her top 4 reasons why you too should style your home for sale.
Stand out from the crowd – 90% of buyers look online at homes before they decide to inspect a property. Photos of a beautifully
styled home will make your home stand out and make it more likely to be viewed on inspection days.
Make an impact – a well styled home can make a potential buyer feel good in your home, creating an emotional response. A buyer with
an emotional connection to your home is more likely to put in a strong offer.
Maximise your sales price – most real estate agents agree that styling can add up to 15% on your sales price. In Marcella’s
experience, buyers can add around $50,000 onto their home sale value with a $5000 investment in styling.
Achieve a faster sale – no one wants their home sitting on the market for a prolonged period and a well-styled home can generate more
buyer interest which in turn creates a sense of urgency.
