When you’re putting your house on the market, a great presentation is the key to boosting your home’s value. The question whether home-staging actually works is almost irrelevant these days, with cities like Sydney and Melbourne making professional home-staging an ingrained, non-negotiable part of the selling process.

8 Tips to Depersonalise Your Home Before Selling

By |2021-01-07T10:22:36+10:00January 6th, 2021|DIY Home Staging, Home Staging Tips|

When preparing your home for sale, decluttering and depersonalising your space is an important step in the home staging process. If you want to sell quickly and at the highest price, you need to enable the potential buyers to visualise themselves living in your house. Any visible personal items (e.g. family portraits) would cause friction in their imagination and be a constant reminder that the house they’re looking at belongs to someone else. “A properly staged house should feel warm, welcoming & homely, without the “footprint” of the previous owner.” We have put together eight tips [...]

Truth be told, the bed is unmade, the lamps are from Bunnings, there’s a dog bed in the corner and while the linen is freshly washed, it’s by no means extravagant. Why am I telling you this? Well, [...]
