Home staging started in America in the 1970’s and is now part of the process of selling a property in America, Canada, Australia and now Europe! So why should Britain follow suit?
In this uncertain market where we find an abundance of properties but very few buyers, it’s essential that we do everything that we can to ensure our property stands out from the competition.
Often, a buyer finds it hard to visualise themselves living in an empty property. Despite an accurate sized floor plan many buyers struggle to see the property complete with their furniture. We also need to remember that a buyer falls for the lifestyle that is created for them. Buying a property is an emotional process; an ‘Ahh’ feeling, one that makes them feel like they are home. This cannot be achieved in an empty property or a property that is full to the brim of its owner’s clutter and personal belongings. Remember, potential purchasers are buying a lifestyle not your belongings.
Amanda Green, of Property by Design has joined forces with Leigh Davies of Optimist Design to provide all aspects of property presentation and are now trading as The Property Presenters Ltd. Amanda and Leigh have over 20 years of Interior Design and Staging experience between them and are available to assist you with everything from an initial staging consultation to a full installation, providing you with a furnished and dressed property ready to pass to your estate agent for marketing.
Since ‘The Property Presenters’ launched on 6th April 19, the ladies have successfully completed a number of projects. One that they are most proud of is the staging of an empty 4 bed property near Stanstead Airport. The property had been on the market for 16 months with little interest, and the asking price had been reduced by £75k.
At this point the owners contacted The Property Presenters to ask for advice on staging. After the initial meeting the owners went ahead, and the ladies arranged for their team to deep clean the whole house including all carpets, the garden was tidied, and they fully staged every room in the property. A new estate agent was appointed, and the property was relaunched. This time the property sold STC for the full asking price within 72 hours of marketing!
Leigh and Amanda have also completed a 6-bedroom serviced accommodation in Luton. They can provide all furniture, accessories, soft furnishings and dress the property ready for marketing and welcoming the first guests.
They designed and installed a two-bedroom Show Home apartment for Sempra Homes in Basildon, and they are continually working with a private developer advising him on all aspects of interior design on all his build projects.
So, no matter what your interior needs are call The Property Presenters,
You won’t be disappointed!
