Selling a property is one of the most talked about things in the UK and sparks interest in everyone. Properly preparing your home for sale is essential, and it’s for this reason that our TV screens are filled with programmes from ‘Grand Designs’, ‘Location Location Location’ and ‘Million Pound Properties’, to ‘Phil Spencer: Secret Agent’.
The latter is inspired by properties that are in need of improvement to maximise their return and are possibly struggling to sell on the open market. Transforming the look and feel of a property, along with its marketing can spark considerable interest which will ultimately boost the final sale price.
At Vanilla Square we decided to test this theory to maximise some of our clients’ sales, using the skills of a House Doctor from Sienna Interiors to improve several properties; the results were spectacular. Clients appear to be stretching their budgets when a property is presented in show home condition. You don’t always need to spend a fortune, and it can often be some clever staging tips with your own furniture and possibly some fresh paintwork. Some of the examples below show the difference it can make to a sale and we would happily guide you through the process if this strategy was of interest.
