What is Home Staging?

Staging is NOT decorating. It is a three step process used to prepare a property for sale to enhance property presentation in order to secure an acceptable offer from a buyer.

Often people believe that staging is for high end homes - staging can be utilised for any size property in any price bracket.

Staging is cost effective and it will always cost less than your first price reduction!!

Does Home Staging work?

90% of buyers can not visualize the potential of a home; they can not imagine themselves in a property when they look at it.

Buying a property is an emotional decision for most buyers and this is why we need to help potential buyers to see a house as a home they can live in.

Did you know it takes a buyer an average of only 3-6 min to walk through a house?

"You only have one chance to make a good first impression."


Occupied Properties:

Step 1: The Consultation
We provide a consultation providing a step by step, room by room detailed report with our recommendations. We then sit with you and determine your timeline with clear deadlines, budget and tasks you need to undertake. You will have the option of executing all recommendations yourself or using our services. Usually taking from 2 - 2.5 hours.
Prices for a Consultation Start from $220.00.

Step 2: The Work
This step is where we complete the recommendations. You can save money and do the job yourself or we can arrange for the work to be done using a handyman and tradespeople: organizing, de-cluttering, fixing, painting, cleaning, packing, moving and storage, etc.
Price will be quoted after your consultation appointment.

Step 3: Showcasing
Showcasing is where we use the existing furniture and furnishings you have in your home to its best potential to give it the WOW factor where buyers can imagine themselves living in your property and lead to them making those all important offers.
A written quotation for showcasing services will be provided at your consultation appointment.

The Business

Key 2 Sale is a new business founded by Gail Richards specialising in Home Staging (she is a certified staging professional through CSP) decluttering and organisation.

We work with Home Owners, Builders, Investors and Real Estate Agents.

With a vast array of local knowledge as a real estate agent, Gail has assisted many clients buy and sell property over the years but the common problem she has found with many homeowners was knowing where to start with preparing and presenting their home for sale.

Countless times she has seen Vendors take thousands of dollars less because problems weren't rectified before placing their home on the market, or the property wasn't presented to capture it's best attributes before showcasing it to potential buyers.

Even in a tough market Gail always found buyers were willing to pay more for a "move in ready" house and these homes often sold faster. If there was work to be done even small jobs, buyers wanted a reduction on the asking price.

Instead if Vendors made some initial outlay to attend to the issues before placing the property on the market they would have walked away with more money and a quicker sale.

Unfortunately, Mount Gambier sellers were missing out on obtaining services of an expert in the field so she enrolled and trained with the Australian Certified Staging Professionals and studied their intensive and comprehensive training program in Sydney with experienced home stager, Janne Petrie.

Now a qualified home stager, Gail is keen to assist home sellers in any price bracket present their home for sale & maximise their selling potential.
