Home Staging Sold this House - Sealed Bids

'An overseas client, a £1m property to sell amid the COVID pandemic - Here's what we did...'

This property had been on the market previously the year before, but failed to sell. The clients had emigrated to Australia and needed to sell, but were forced to rent out until they came across House Wow® Associates Karen and Fiona at K3 Interior Design. Based in Cambridge they were pleased to visit the property and communicate with the clients at unusual times of the day to provide advice.

"We're used to communicating with overseas clients" says Karen Kerridge, "They need to know how we work, exactly what we propose and what the costs will be."

Home Staging Sells

Karen and Fiona recommended freshening up some of the décor, removing existing tired curtains, fitting a new front door, tidying the garden and home staging with rental furnishings to give the viewers that all important 'wow factor'.

2 weeks, 30 viewings and 9 offers later...

Marketing images of the staged property drastically improved the number of viewings from the previous year and the viewings in the staged property enable the 'would-be buyers' to mentally move in.

There was such a rush of offers above asking price that they had to go to sealed bids and the clients took an offer well over the asking price. They were aiming for a million and got it.

The Home Staging investment returned a profit and more importantly it secured a fast and stress free sale. Multiple offers means that buyes are more motivated to ensure a trouble free sales process. If they waver at any point there are a number of buyers ready and willing to step in.

The clients were thrilled with the whole experience and can now move on with their new lives in Australia.

'A professional Home Stager will save you time and money. Professional Staging is an art form, each space must tell it's own story to a wide range of potential buyers.'
"Since we now live in Australia, we were heavily reliant on the support of experts in the UK to help sell our UK home. As the house was empty, it made sense to have the house staged to make it feel more homely. K3 stepped in and, in addition to furnishing the house, they took time to advise on areas of improvement that would help present the house at its best. Once furnished the house looked amazing. K3's attention to detail, including ensuring the house looked sparkly clean, ensured that we received a multitude of compliments on its look throughout the sale. The fact that we achieved a sale within a month, for a sum in excess of the asking price, amidst the turbulence of a global pandemic, is testament to the success of Karen and Fiona's efforts. Thank you both for your expertise, and for being so lovely to deal with."
