Designed to Sell is a brand new homestaging company, operating in the Essex area.
We help you to stage your home to achieve the fastest sale, at the best price!
When you are putting your home on the market, it is important to show it off to its best potential – so viewers can envisage living in the space. Often when you are living in a property you don’t notice it’s flaws – the crack in the ceiling, the mouldy grout in the bathroom – but buyers will!
Home staging is simple – Designed to Sell can help you dress your furniture and decor to showcase it at its best. 97% of us can’t visualise a space other than how it is presented to us, which is why properties can achieve, on average, a 10% higher sale price when dressed. Dressing and styling will make the difference between eventually achieving an acceptable offer, and quickly achieving the highest price for your property. It may cost you nothing – a simple de-clutter and cleaning can sometimes be all you need. But there may be some financial investment – i.e. painting, minor repairs, storage costs and improving the garden and plants to give potential buyers an idea of how they will be able to utilise the space.
