A house doctor project for an Australian couple – in Nottingham

2013-11-01T10:39:20+00:00

House Doctor fame reaches as far as Australia it would seem - this couple live in Australia but own a house in Nottingham. They had seen the House Doctor show many times, and decided to call me when it was time to put it on the market. It had been rented for a few years, but was in good condition. It needed furniture, window dressings and all the usual finishing touches - on a very tight budget.  We first agreed to only [...]

An estate agent used my House Doctor services for her own home! (Flintham, Nottingham.)

2013-11-06T09:07:04+00:00

This is the third time an estate agent has asked for my House Doctor services to sort their own home. And it SOLD within ten days! This busy lady knew her empty cottage needed some attention before it went on the market. It didn't have much kerb appeal, so potential buyers needed to see what was inside.  She knew that good photographs were essential, and it worked! Here are the photos. In true house doctor style, we kept the budget [...]

2013-10-17T18:01:45+00:00

Home Staging in Cresswell, Stoke. This property had been on the market for an unbelievable FIVE years! It still took four months to sell after I staged it, but the estate agents and my client were delighted. He said: Hi Lynn I hope you are keeping well. Good news on my house sale. During the past 4 months I had 12 viewings, and in September 3 offers, one of which I accepted and just waiting for the solicitors to finish [...]

One day home staging in Worcester, an Old Coach House

2013-10-17T18:02:09+00:00

Home staging in Worcester. This house had already been on the market for a few months, and was getting many hits on the estate agent's website (much higher than average), but no viewings. One of the reasons was obvious. The interior photos had been taken by a professional photographer, who had chosen three rooms, moved everything out apart from a few essential pieces of furniture, and then added so much light to the photos that the rooms looked like they belonged in a [...]

Dining rooms – do we need them?

2013-10-14T10:48:53+00:00

Dining rooms - are they necessary when selling your home? In a recent article in House to Home, they claim that six out of 10 homeowners prefer to entertain guests in the kitchen, and almost 60% of families don't use their dining room as they all eat at seperate times. (http://www.housetohome.co.uk/articles/news/most-families-no-longer-eat-together_532179.html) However, when you're selling a home, you're selling a lifestyle. Potential buyers will see your dining room and imagine all the social events they can host there - even [...]

Home staging – Nottingham. 3 bed terrace.

2013-10-17T18:03:01+00:00

Home Staging in Nottingham - SOLD within a week! This beautiful property had high ceilings and lots of space, but with a busy family living there, it was difficult to see the potential. We decluttered, moved items into storage, and restyled the rooms. My client commented: "Many thanks for all your hard work - the end result looked great and, more to the point, impressed the estate agents!  We got the outcome we were after and this means we can [...]

Home staging in Twycross, Leicestershire. 5 bedrooms.

2013-10-17T18:03:14+00:00

Home Staging in Twycross. This beautiful home had great potential. The large family home had been converted so that the entire ground floor was a separate dwelling, suitable for older members of the family, or grown-up children, or even to be rented. The remainder of the house was on the top two floors. There was an interior stairway to connect the two properties if required, and it was very flexible. The owner was living in the lower apartment, and the upper floors hadn't been lived [...]

How to stage very small rooms when you need to sell your home

2013-10-14T10:52:40+00:00

If you need to sell your home, but the rooms are very small, you are going to have to be brutal - especially if you are still living in the home!  The house I am using as an example is an extreme case, as it was one of the most narrow properties I have worked with, but it demonstrates the the "less is more" theory perfectly, even if you wouldn't need to be quite so extreme in your own home. Here are [...]

Create a hotel style bathroom when selling your home

2013-09-25T19:59:29+00:00

When you're selling your home, the bathroom needs to be pristine. Spotlessly clean and tidy. Stylish. Beautifully accessorised. No toothpaste, no children's toys or potties, no wet towels! Try to add a plant, a few expensive, matching toiletries, fluffy new towels (just put them out for viewings), and put the lights on for photographs. Imagine it's a beautiful hotel bathroom! If you were a visitor to your home, would you want to walk around with bare feet? When selling your [...]
