About the project:

  

This was a home staging project to sell. The clients were living abroad and needing to sell their large £1m+ UK property so that they could free up their capital. I was called in to prepare the property for an open house day. The property had had viewings and offers that were unacceptable to the clients. The clients wanted to sell quickly but for the best price. Because this large property had been let to tenants, it needed a bit of a facelift to best present it for viewings. The job involved sourcing new furniture, landscaping (new gravel for driveway, weeding, planting, trimming), decorating (minor decorating and repairs required), clearing out loft and garage and storing excess furniture, rearranging furniture, accessorising and dressing the house for the open day. The result was an agreed offer within a week of the open day. The offer was a 5% increase on the previous offers submitted and the return on investment was 750%. 

"Staging the house helped us achieve a £60,000 increased offer and a quick sale. Shona more than earned her stripes!" 

L Lawson, vendor

 "Shona was commissioned to stage a large country house we were selling. The vendors were living abroad and the property had been rented out for the previous 12 months. Although this stunning house did have some substantial fitted and free standing furniture and was beautifully decorated it lacked the feeling and atmosphere of the once much loved family home it had been. The owners decided it would be beneficial to employ Shona's home staging skills so prospective buyers could see the house as it was when occupied. "Shona defined the areas of the house. The conservatory had lost its identity so she added furniture to give it back its purpose whilst adding a contemporary twist. Furniture was re-sited, coffee tables were dressed with books and magazines and beds were made up with carefully co-ordinated luxurious linens. All finishing touches that make a house a home. 

"We organised an Open House for this home and a few days later it was sold." Julia Simonds, Andrew Grant Estate Agents
