Home staging house outside for kerb appeal

These photographs are of a project in South Manchester. The owner had been renting out her house whilst living in London. The house had been on the market for a few months but was generating very little interest. When the tenants vacated, the owner employed us to prepare her empty house for sale. We collected the keys from the estate agents, visited the house and emailed our suggestions to our client in London who then instructed us how to proceed.

General repairs, gardening, cleaning, decorating and partial styling were then organised. Three weeks later the house received an offer of sale.

The front garden was weeded and tidied up, the fence was mended and stained. The old scratched brass door furniture was replaced with a shiny silver one. The house now has kerb appeal!

The handyman hard at work.

First impressions are so important...the new door furniture is so much more welcoming than the old. The modern mirror adds 'wow factor' when entering the house.

Cutting the lawn, trimming the hedge and the shrubs makes the garden look far more loved, cared for and easy to maintain.

A thorough clean of the grout in the bathroom and replacing the mouldy sealant makes the bathroom far more appealing.

The client decorated the house throughout and then moved her own furniture back in. The house generated far more interest after it had been improved and an offer was accepted just over 3 weeks after the staging was completed. The total price of the staging was just under 900.

This is what the customer said about the improvements to her house...

"I was really impressed with the fast, thorough and professional service I received. As I work away from home it was important that I immediately obtained a rapport and sense of trust with the firm I used, Suzanne immediately put me at ease. The job was done quickly and Suzanne updated me throughout. The estate agent was blown away by the improvements to the property and how much fresher it seemed. I would have no problems recommending Heatons Home Styling."
