Designed to Sell is a homestaging company, operating in the Essex area.
We help you to stage your home to achieve the fastest sale, at the best price!
When people are trying to sell their home, it is important to show the property off to its best potential. Home Staging helps buyers visualise what a house has to offer, and how it would be for them to live in such a beautiful home. It is the process of improving the appeal of a property – enhancing the space and making it brighter and more inviting – in order to increase the sale price and reduce the time a property remains on the market.
Designed to Sell can help you dress your furniture and decor to showcase it at its best. 90% of us can’t visualise a space other than how it is presented to us, which is why properties can achieve, on average, a 10% higher sale price when dressed. Dressing and styling will make the difference between eventually achieving an acceptable offer, and quickly achieving the highest price for your property. It may cost you nothing – a simple de-clutter and cleaning can sometimes be all you need. But there may be some financial investment – i.e. painting, minor repairs, furniture rental, storage costs and improving the garden and plants to give potential buyers an idea of how they will be able to utilise the space.
Designed to Sell works with Developers, Estate Agents and homeowners who are struggling to sell their homes, or who are not getting enough viewings. The property may have been on the market for a few months, with only limited interest and no offers!
Each month the property is on the market it is causing financial stress and worry, and it is imperative to get properties to stand out to buyers, by creating an environment that is both visually and emotionally appealing.
Designed to Sell can help your property stand out above the rest in their area – with some decluttering, cleaning, painting and Home Staging your properties can look amazing – and sell! Or if they are vacant, we can arrange furniture in the property, so buyers can relate to the space.
We will stage the property and show it to its best advantage – show the space and lifestyle possible in the home, getting more viewings and general interest in the property.
So, if you want to sell your property quickly, and do not want to have to reduce the price, drop us an email on the contact form or call us – and we can discuss how Designed to Sell can help your clients achieve their dream and relax into their new homes.
