Whilst selling a furnished home is statistically easier that selling a vacant property, the sale of an occupied home presents its own set of challenges.
Only 5% of potential buyers can visualize the potential of a property, add to this the distraction that all the evidence of your life provides to buyers and a potential problem is created in the selling process.
Once you have made the decision to sell your home it is helpful to remind yourself that you are selling a product which must compete with all the other 'products' that are also on the market. Achieving the best outcome in the sale of your property is business, it's not personal.
For this reason, preparing for sale is best approached in a business like way. Styling in this situation is as much about removing items as it is about adding them.
Where possible, your own furniture and decorations can be used, however, in some situations it may be more advisable to get a jump start on the upcoming move and place your personal belongings in storage for the duration of the sales campaign. In certain situations using a combination of hired furniture along with your own may also be appropriate.
