Home Staging to Sell in Hertford
"The flat in Hertford that I wanted to sell had been rented and was in a shabby state. The local Estate Agents advised me not to spend a penny on it, as any new purchaser would only re-do it
to their taste, and I would be wasting my money. Six months later, despite two price reductions, I had not received a single offer. So I changed my Estate Agent and he immediately said it
would never sell in its present state and that I needed to see The Property Presenters. You recommended a new kitchen, a complete make over, and fully stage the flat with your rental
furniture. I revisited the property after you had completed your work and frankly, I was amazed. It looked so much bigger, and was so nice, I almost wondered why I was selling it! The offers
then came in, and it has now been sold. Thank you for your excellent and helpful service, and I would have no hesitation in recommending your services."

Buying a home is a feeling - staging your home provides that emotion to your potential buyer, the feeling that they have just walked into their new home. A buyers first impression is the only
impression. A buyer makes up their mind about a property within the first 8 seconds of seeing it. That's why all homes need staging.
There is no property price range in which staging doesn't work, and no buyer who doesn't want to maximise the selling price of their house.
• 86% of staged properties sell 3 x faster than non-staged properties.
• Staging increases the number of viewings by 94%.
• 77% of clients received a return on their investment with Home Staging.

Here is a prime example of why Home Staging works:
Our clients came to us after their property had been on the market for 16 months and they had reduced it by £75,000 to secure a sale.The problem was that the property was virtually empty,
except for some of the owner's belongings that they had not yet removed. The estate agent had photographed the property clearly showing the owners items which gave a very negative impression of
the property. The house, a beautiful 4 bedroom detached in a lovely development, just needed to be presented as a comfortable and welcoming family home, which is exactly what it was.
We advised our client to remove the belongings they had left behind, after which we had the property professionally cleaned, including the carpets, and had the garden weeded and hedges trimmed.
We then furnished and dressed the whole house to show its full potential. A new estate agent was appointed, and the house went back on the market. Within just 72 hours of re-marketing, an offer
for the full asking price was received and the sale completed smoothly. Happy clients and happy purchasers!
