Calibre was able to assemble the best team & strategy to achieve an outstanding result.

Sales Strategy  – Auction

It was decided that an Auction was the best sales strategy as the property was unique, being newly completed and meticulously renovated to a high standard on a large double block, there wasn’t much to compare it to. With demand for this type of property, the auction strategy seemed the most fitting to allow interested parties the most transparent sales method to purchase the home.

Schedule of Finishes and Property Styling – The Styled House

It was important to show the property in the best way and give purpose to each space through furnishing the home.

Property styling helps a potential buyer to visualise how they would use the space. Often you find buyers spending more time in a property that has been staged as it allows them to ‘connect’ with the property.

Professional styling is an important element in a marketing campaign. The more buyers your property appeals to, the better the outcome.  Most properties are viewed online, so visual appeal in photography is extremely important. Property styling achieves this, making your property stand out from others. Being visually appealing and standing out when viewed online, will encourage more people through the door and helps potential buyers to see how they could imagine living in the property.

Once the potential buyers enter the property they get a greater connection to each room as it is styled to enable them to visualise what they can do with the different spaces.  They instantly feel at home and in turn more eager to purchase the property.

Price Guide for Staging and Styling a home of this size sits between $6,000 to $7,000. Smaller staging packages start from $1,000.
