Empty rooms, echoes and the smell of Dulux Trade emulsion will NOT wow your buyers.
Whether you're a builder, property developer or you flip property, it really pays to stage your build.
Beautiful Interiors Sell
I’ve seen so many properties where the builder hasn’t got quite the right finish, where something is off, or cheap-looking, or emphasises flaws - and it’s obvious they haven’t got a professional in.
Get a price for furnishing and styling your build at the outset, so you can factor in the cost whilst still at the planning stage.
You won't have to buy the furniture and accessories, the home stager will take care of that for you, usually on a rental basis for 2/3 months - enough time to lock in your buyer to Exchange of Contracts.
To sell a new build or renovation FAST you need factor in the for the interior design (and that has go to beyond the fittings such as granite worktops oak doors).
In fact, why not get your interior designer or stager to advise on the kitchen, bathrooms, flooring and colour schemes, too?
The attention to detail will make all the difference and pay for itself many times over.
If you have multiple homes in a development, remember you only need to create one Show Home.
Why stage an Empty Property?
1. Take control of the selling process – by making your development stand out from the rest you drive up buyer interest and reduce the uncertainty over selling price or time
2. Maximise your ROI - staging at the outset ensures less time on the market, and a better sale price
3. Liquidity - A quicker sale releases your money for your next project
4. Marketing - You can use the professional photos for your brochures/website and for future developments
Staging means you hit the market with a bang and get maximum buyer interest at the outset, halving your time to sell and avoiding that 10, 15 or 20% price reduction months down the line.
So whether you're at the planning stage, or about to complete - find out what staging will cost - it will pay for several times over.
