FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How Does Property Styling with The Real Estate Stylist work?
Property Styling is different to Interior Design. When you engage The Real Estate Stylist to design a styling package for your home, you are engaging professional stylists who are knowledgeable and experienced in Real Estate and know how to bring out a properties full potential. The trust is placed on the stylists to fill up your home with quality furnishings that will help your property reach it's optimum selling price. We unfortunately do not offer mood boards or pictures of furniture prior to installation as the design process needs to be fluid and we need to use available stock. We take care of all the styling and furniture elements based on your properties features as ultimately that is what the buyer will walk away with.
How much does property styling cost?
Price is dependent on property size/amount of living spaces. We are all about return on investment. On average sale prices of properties styled by TRES fetch approx: $50,000-$200,000+ more then vendor reserve. Prices start from $2900* for a full package, all inclusive of quoting, styling, insurance, delivery and GST. (*This is for an average size 1 bedroom apartment).
How long is an average hire campaign?
5 weeks. Allows for 1 week of photography and 4 weeks sale campaign.
How does the real estate stylist choose furniture for a property?
We design on availability from our large collection of furniture, artwork and props. We bring together a cohesive design that best suits the market, the architectural features of the space and the potential buyer. We own all of our furniture, giving us the ability to have full quality and aesthetic control over our stock.
Can I use some of my own furniture?
Unless the furniture piece fits in with the design and is the optimum piece for the property, for maximum impact we request removal of all furniture.
Do I have to vacate the property for the campaign?
Yes, that is the TRES request. Our clients who have moved out of their property for the campaign have found the sale process much easier. No Wednesday night/ Saturday morning mad dash around the house, hiding the undies and the dirty dishes and playing incognito with the kids in the car down the street. Once we have gone in and done our thing, it's best to keep it as is and sit back and relax from the sidelines. This also optimises the quality of our furniture as our pieces are not lived on.
Can I select specific pieces for my property?
As we are professional stylists at The Real Estate Stylist we request that the trust is placed on our knowledge of the market, current trends and your potential buyers and allow us to take care of the selection of all furniture and styling items.
Can I hire just a few pieces from The Real Estate Stylist?
No. We are not a hire furniture company, we are a styling company. We specialise in presenting empty properties for sale as we believe that ads the most value to the end result.
What are the payment terms?
Deposit required to hold booking and balance due upfront prior to installation.
Are you insured?
We have full insurance for all of our furniture for the entirety of your campaign.
How long before I sell my property should I engage The Real Estate Stylist?
We would recommend at least 2-3 weeks between quoting and installation time.
Where do you service?
We would LOVE to service all of Melbourne (and Australia for that matter) however we are located in Tullamarine and get booked out very quickly, so we are currently only providing our services within approximately a 30-40 minute radius. During peak times this service area may be reduced due to capacity. Please note this before requesting a quote.
