Useful property staging information and advice
How do you sell an empty house?
Whether you are an estate agent, developer or investor, you will have probably found that empty houses take longer to sell or rent. They also require more input as far as your time and marketing budget to maximise their potential. Whether the property is new to the market or struggling to get viewings, Ely based interior design company, K3 Interior Design, have proven over and over again that a professionally staged property has huge benefits.
A professionally staged property will:
Increase the perceived value
Receive more viewings
Be aspirational and homely
Spend less time on the market
Look better in print and internet adverts
Be viewed by buyers as “well maintained”
Have less reasons for buyers to knock down the asking price
Over the past 14 years, Karen Kerridge and Fiona Speed, the sisters at the helm of K3, have worked with numerous agents and developers in selling properties ranging from £150,000 up to £3,000,000. Unlike a lot of other property stagers we not only personally design and install everything from a sofa to the luxury toiletries but they offer the choice of renting or buying the complete furniture package.
The rental option is ideal for private homeowners or smaller new developments and is a fraction of the cost of buying furniture plus the vendor is not left with any furniture to dispose of. For larger and longer-term developments K3 recommend buying the contents, which can be kept in situ, moved to another show home or can be sold on to the buyer and therefore the cost can often be fully recouped.
“We have been using the furniture rental services of K3 Interior Design for over 12 years. Karen and Fiona have used their design skills to create stylish show homes which have helped us to maximise the potential when marketing our new build properties. They tackle each project with enthusiasm, a hands-on approach and a great eye for detail. We always receive great feedback from estate agents and potential buyers alike” Dean and Dean Construction
