What you need to know to Effectively Style your Home for Sale

As a home owner we have our "rose coloured" glasses on and are styling our home to suit our taste rather than the potential buyer of your home.  This is a common mistake by sellers who don't realise that staging a home for sale is more than "fluffing a cushion". As an expert I take you through a number of key fundamentals I work through with my clients so they know how to get the best presentation for maximum sale value.

Think like a buyer when styling your home for Sale

One of the common mistakes that sellers make is not thinking like a buyer when styling their property for sale in Perth.

Incorrect and poor styling can lead to a loss of profit for a seller.  As a seller you need to think like a buyer and consider many factors to ensure your styling hits your target market.  Get this right and you will maximise your sale value by $10,000's in profit.
