The Importance of Styling a Home for Sale

Styling a home isn't just about fetching a high price tag, Shaynna Blaze says it's essential for properties that are empty, messy or dirty.

While in the past, baking a batch of cookies before an open home was enough to lure buyers in, but these days it's all about what they can see and how that makes them feel.

  • First and foremost - tidy up! Use this opportunity to get rid of what you have been hoarding or meaning to throw out over the years.
  • Stick to ONE style for the overall look for the home. And if you're planning on changing the colour stick to a colour theme that focuses on accent colour to tie your rooms together. It may be a vase in one room, towels in the bathroom, cushions in the lounge.
  • However, don't over do it. With accessories, less is more.
  • Don't just tidy up the inside - remember to give the outside a clean up as well. Mow the lawns, weed the garden beds and remove any broken toys or outdoor furniture.
