What is house styling?

House styling involves preparing a home for sale.

Whether that be styling a property that is currently lived in, or bringing furniture, homewares and accessories into a home that is vacant, home styling can set your property apart from the rest.

Real Estate is an ever-changing and extremely competitive market and no longer is it simply a case of popping a sign out the front, investing the bare minimum in marketing and expecting your agent to do the rest. It is a buyers market and sellers need to do that bit extra. Plus – it will be worth it.

The misconceptions of home styling

One of the biggest misconception about home styling is that it is for a more luxury market and that it isn’t affordable. However having a home for sale, that isn’t presented at its best, will cost you in the long term.

Jim’s Interior Design are Melbourne’s premium house stylists – affordable, practical and accessible.

If you are looking to sell your home swiftly and for the best possible price, you can’t afford not to call the team on 131 546 or book your complimentary consultation here.

  • Attract competition. Stunning photos of a beautifully staged home on Australia’s top real estate sites will no doubt create a buzz and some stiff competition amongst potential buyers.
