House Styling - What are the most frequently asked questions when staging a property for sale? House styling FAQ's. 

  1. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FULL PROPERTY STYLING & PARTIAL STYLING? Full Property styling refers to vacant homes that we will style from top to bottom. It means that we take care of everything. It is usually relevant for investment properties or vendors that have moved out of the property. Partial property styling is when we work with vendors who are still residing in the property and where we can utilize appropriate furniture or items of the home owner.  We combine the two to achieve a beautiful look and a balanced feel.​

  2. WHY SHOULD I HAVE MY PROPERTY STAGED FOR SALE? In a nutshell, it comes down to presentation. Presenting your property to the market, so it appeals to as many potential buyers as possible is our mandate. While you may feel very attached to your family photos, feature walls or sporting memorabilia, it is generally not what potential buyers want to see when they review a property. We consult with you, your agent, review recent sales data and develop a demographic profile, to ensure our styling suites the property, market conditions and market trends. We consistently help our vendors achieve record prices and in record time, examples here.

  3. ONCE I CONTACT HOME PROPERTY STYLING FOR A QUOTE HOW DOES IT WORK? Once you’ve reached out to us, we’ll book in a complimentary consultation at your property. We will then send you a proposal via email. Once you are happy with the quotation, we will get to work selecting the best pieces to compliment your home. When you know your photography date, we will work backwards from there and make sure beautiful furniture is installed prior to the shoot.  Bookings are subject to availability.​

  4. HOW LONG DOES THE INSTALLATION TAKE? This varies depending on the size of the project. Generally from a couple of hours for a partial installation to a full day on a larger property. 

  5. HOW LONG WILL THE PROPERTY STAGING FURNITURE BE IN MY HOME? Our hire period is for a period of 8 weeks or by negotiation.​
  6. WHAT IF MY HOME HASN’T SOLD AND I HAVE COME TO THE END OF MY HIRE PERIOD? Additional weeks can be charged according to your individual proposal for a 7-day period. You will need to give us notice if you wish to add additional weeks onto your hire period, though this is rarely required.  ​
