Why now is the perfect time to sell (and style) your home
It’s not just the birds, bees and blossoms that come out in spring. Starting in late August, Aussie home buyers are known to be most active.
That’s why spring is the best and busiest time to sell your home. Take advantage of the bright skies, fresh air and feeling of new starts and put your property on the market now! But before you do, here are some tips to get the most out of your spring property sale.
Style to stand out
While it’s great news that the property market is heating up, it also means more competition. You need to stand out from the crowd if you want your offers to exceed expectations. Property styling is now seen as a must-have for people serious about selling. Expert stylists know how to curate and arrange furniture and accessories to appeal to the target market and local demographic. The results truly do speak for themselves – with our Styled to Sell service, 95% of properties have successfully achieved return on investment. We’re dedicated to helping you sell your home faster, for more.
Be money smart
It’s true that property styling, more often than not, ends up paying for itself. But we also know that selling your home puts a considerable amount of extra financial stress on your shoulders. That’s why we’ve created BOWERBIRD BLACK, our premium offering which allows you to defer your styling payments until settlement or 107 days, whichever comes first. With no upfront payments, no repayments and no added interest on your styling, you’ll be able to focus your attention on things that matter during the crucial selling period. Eligible applicants can get funding up to $25,000 to pay later for property styling, cosmetic renovation and marketing.
Can we fix it?
Yes, we can! Cosmetic renovations are well worth the investment for the end results. Naturally, buyers are more likely to put down a higher offer for the home with shiny floors and spotless walls. Did you know that BOWERBIRD can take care of your cosmetic renovations, too? With ASSIST by BOWERBIRD, we fully project-manage services including flooring, painting, cleaning, removals and storage. Coupled with our styling, your home will look its very best and attract the highest possible offers. Plus, we are now offering the opportunity to also pay later for ASSIST when you book property styling with BOWERBIRD BLACK. If people are looking for a fresh start in spring, make sure your home looks and feels brand new.
Light it up
Lean into that spring feeling and make sure your home looks bright and beautiful. Throw open the shutters, let in natural light and book real estate photography during golden hour. Keep your styling light and neutral, with the odd pop of colour to make it memorable. And don’t forget to bring the outside in – add a houseplant (or two) to virtually every room in the house. Just make sure they are sturdy enough to survive the home viewings as there’s nothing more off-putting to a buyer than dead plants (you can get some pretty convincing fakes).
