Staging works – and here’s the proof…07 Apr 2021
We had a new rental instruction recently and while the flat was a great size and in a fab location, we really thought it would attract a tenant more quickly if it was furnished and dressed before it went to market. Although it can be frustrating for landlords to have to wait a little longer before the property goes on the market, most of the time it’s worth the wait to make it live when it’s looking its best.
The landlord engaged us to source furniture and dress the property before placing it on the market and it certainly had the desired effect.
With a budget of around £850, we managed to furnish the flat and dress it – all within around a week. The flat went live and within a week we have a tenant lined up to move in at £695pm. That’s an increase in potential rent of £100 per month and it’s secured a tenant much more quickly.
The numbers work!
