The Client Said...
'After deciding to sell our investment property in Ballarat East, our Agent recommended staging the property for sale and referred us to 3 Pea's Property Styling who provided Furniture Hire and Property Styling for our property.
The quote was detailed, provided extremely quickly and Jo was excellent at explaining the different options and which one she thought would be most appropriate without being pushy - and it wasn't the most expensive.
Not only did Jo complete our installation as agreed and on schedule, it was done with very little notice and at a peak time (December). Jo also ran around and picked up keys as we live in Melbourne.
The styling was brilliant and made a world of difference. The property sold for a price far higher than we expected as a result, so the cost of styling more than paid for itself.
3 Pea's Property Styling also promoted the property via social media, positively supporting our agents overall marketing campaign.
The primary issue that we were concerned about when presenting the house for sale was that the main living area of the house is small, however with the right size furniture it was made to look cosy and very liveable.
3 Pea's Property Styling overcame these issues by using appropriate, stylish furniture, making all the rooms look very inviting
We would certainly recommend 3 Pea's Property Styling to others selling their property.
The service is excellent and good presentation should never be under estimated. Females don't buy bricks they buy a home so professional help will always add value.
I highly recommend Jo and her company 3 Peas. Our expectations were exceeded and we have Jo to thank for a healthy profit on our investment. Our house sold in on the first open, so literally within days!'
The Agent Said...
'I referred my clients to 3 Pea's Property Styling to have their investment property staged for sale. 3 Pea's contacted the vendor and provided their quote in a timely manner and managed to complete the installation one day earlier than first suggested, which worked perfectly, facilitating the photography to completed on a tight schedule.
The styling was complimentary to the property and the home was under contract within the first week with the buyer seeing the home on realestate.com.au.
The main issue in presenting this vacant property for sale was movement in the timber floorboards and the small living area. 3 Pea's overcame these issues with clever styling in the living area to show size. The bedrooms looked impressive, with good use of space - some buyers have trouble visualising furniture if they are looking through a vacant home.
I would highly recommend anyone considering selling to consider 3 Peas Property Styling, to achieve a great result and the potential to achieve a higher price for their home.'
