Sell Faster with Staging
Submitted by Laura Shepherd on 13/03/2014 - Senior Marketing Manager
As spring arrives, there are widespread reports that positivity has returned to the housing market across the country and that properties are moving more quickly now than at any time since the recession.
This is encouraging news, however it remains important to think carefully about the presentation of your property to set it apart in the eyes of the potential buyer and help maximise the price you can get for it. This is a situation where first impressions really do count. Agents consistently agree that furnished properties get more viewings than unfurnished ones and a well staged home will sell more quickly than one that is not.
Our Dress to Sell/Let services provide staging and furnishing at that all-important viewings stage, transforming it into a living space that buyers can ‘see’ themselves in, which is sometimes difficult when viewing an empty property. We can furnish any size of property, from a simple one-bedroom apartment or particular rooms within a house, right up to a large family home, with a wide range furnishing styles available. This service has been proven to assist quick sales at asking price and increase the speed of letting, thus reducing the length of any void period.
According to one South-West London estate agent who used our Dress to Sell service: “The furniture made a huge difference in attracting potential buyers to the property, in fact towards the end of the first week of the property being dressed, we received two offers, one of which we have just progressed to an exchange of contracts.”
Another good example is in the case of a property in Richmond, which had been put on the market but after seven months without any decent offers, the owners instructed a new agent who strongly believed that staging would help sell the house. The agent contacted us and after we had furnished the house, it was sold for the full asking price in less than three weeks, resulting in a fabulous return on the owners’ investment.
If you have a property to put on the market, we are currently offering a special discount on all property marketing rentals. Get THREE months for the price of TWO or SIX months for the price of FOUR.
This offer is only available until 25th March, so don’t delay in getting your property dressed to impress! Call us today on 020 8397 9344 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
