MAXIMUM IMPACT, MINIMUM INVESTMENT Let me show you how to unlock your property's potential. Already on the market and struggling to sell? A simple refresh could prevent you from having to drastically reduce your asking price. These days most people search for their new home online, so you only have a split second to stand out from the crowd: sticking up a For Sale board and hoping for the best is unlikely to create a stampede of viewings or offers. I'll look around with buyers' eyes and reveal how to get your biggest asset looking its best on a budget. Follow my advice and you'll end up with somewhere that's attractive to a broader range of buyers. And while they're busy daydreaming about moving in, you'll be feeling much more prepared to move out. After investing in one of my consultations, a couple were delighted to get two asking price offers on the first day of viewings; you can see and read more on the Home Staging Association website by searching 'two asking price offers' My services also work wonders on holiday rentals and Airbnbs.

It had been 17 years since I last sold a house and I had a long list of things I thought I should do to the house before it went up for sale. I knew that Jane had successfully sold several flats and houses before – often getting full asking price within a very short time on the market. I thought this could only happen in big towns like Brighton and houses in the country tended to sit on the market for a long time before being sold. I invited her over and we walked through every room of the house. Jane’s philosophy is not about spending lots of money. It is more about making rooms look as spacious as possible , storing away or selling clutter, neutral décor and introducing some colour using cushions and plants. We had considered a full re-fit of our en-suite bathroom which was going to be at least £5,000. Instead Jane suggested we paint the walls a neutral colour, gave the tiles a sparkling clean, new fluffy towels and nice toiletries and some new houseplants. Jane’s suggestions not only made the en-suite look great, but we could bring the items we had bought with us to our new home, as well as saving thousands of pounds. I had also considered replacing all the made to measure blinds in the conservatory which again would be very expensive. Instead we threw the old ones away and I paid £200 to a company to clean it inside and out. It looked like new. I added some new cushions with a green leaf pattern on which made the room look clean and bright and much more welcoming. We did sell some pieces of furniture and an awful lot of clutter, and did a thorough deep clean everywhere. We went on sale, had 3 viewers in the first couple of days. Two buyers wanted the house for full asking price, so we accepted the one that was not in a chain. I was gob-smacked! Thank you Jane
