This month we are very pleased to have home staging expert Steve Gerken from Staged Homes come and talk to us on ‘how to sell your property faster and for more’ so that you can reduce your time on market and significantly increase the sale price.
Steve is described by his friends as a keen property problem solver, renovator and property staging enthusiast. He is known for his systematic approach to maximising the value of a property on a modest budget and presenting properties to the market that excite prospective buyers.
“You need to present your property in the best possible way so that buyers can see the lifestyle they are purchasing and not the mortgage repayments that go with it” says Steve.
Over the last 4+ years Steve has been actively renovating properties and selling them for a profit. Through the renovation process Steve was exposed to the power of home staging and how it creates connection and emotion in the minds prospective buyers and how that connection then translates to profits on sale day! “Renovating simply allows you create a blank canvas, staging however allows you to paint your picture and tell your story to a prospective buyer”.
To date Steve has personally been involved in staging over 100 homes and his team have staged literally thousands of homes across Melbourne – leaving a trail of happy vendors and happy real estate agents behind them!
At the meeting Steve will cover:
• Staging versus Styling – what is the difference and is home staging right for your property?
• Saving on renovation costs and time – How to save money and time renovating when staging can achieve the same or better result.
• Preparation – getting it right the first time with maximum impact. Defining your staging budget and preparing your home for sale.
• De-cluttering – what is it and why MUST it be done with a plan?
• Trouble-shooting – How property staging can SAVE you money and help you eliminate potential buyer objections BEFORE you go to market.
Plus much, much more!
