Why do I need my home staged to sell it?
Home staging (or ‘property styling’ as it’s sometimes called) is a process that can help you sell your home quickly for the best price.
Most of us look at our own homes and see memories of good times and proof of our busy lives. Sadly that’s not always what the buyer sees. As people view a house for sale they are making a mental list of positives and negatives. Each time a buyer sees a “problem” or bit of work that needs doing, that’s another entry in the list of negatives. Too many may put them off your house completely. And even if they are still interested, each negative has a cost to put it right – a cost they’ll try to negotiate off your asking price.
We look at your home with a fresh pair of eyes, and give you an objective view of how buyers will view your home.

Home Staging Case Study
A moderately sized 3 bedroom house in Horsham town centre. Excellent location – walkable to town centre and train station. Sensibly priced and in good general condition. As an ex-rental property it was being marketed unfurnished.
The house had been on the market a couple of months, with plenty of viewings, but no offers. Feedback from buyers repeatedly stated that the bedrooms were too small.
We furnished and accessorised the property. Less than a week later an offer was received and accepted. The buyer commented that they “loved the decor”.
