Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is Property Styling?
    Property styling, also known as home staging or real estate styling, is the practice of preparing a residential property for sale by enhancing its visual appeal and functionality to attract potential buyers and maximize its market value. Property styling involves a combination of interior design and decoration techniques to create an inviting and appealing environment that helps potential buyers envision themselves living in the space. This can include arranging furniture, selecting appropriate decor, and making minor cosmetic improvements to create an aesthetically pleasing and marketable home.
  • How does property styling with Upstyle Home Staging work?
    Upstyle Home Staging boasts a dedicated team of proficient interior designers and stylists, well-versed in unlocking a property's complete sales potential. When you enlist our team, you can rely on their expertise in crafting unique and personalized interior styling to set your home apart. We handle all aspects of styling and furnish your property to expedite the sales process and secure the best possible price.
  • How long is your standard hire period?
    Our typical rental duration spans six weeks, including a dedicated week for photography and the initiation of the campaign. If you require an extended rental period, we can accommodate such requests upon inquiry.
  • If my property sells before the standard hire period is complete, do I get a refund on my styling?
    Regrettably, that is not possible. After a property has been introduced to the market, our role effectively concludes. In this context, we will promptly retrieve the furniture from your property, allowing you to mark a successful sale and move forward.
  • How much does property styling cost?
    Property styling costs can fluctuate based on factors such as property size, the number of living spaces, and whether it's a partial or full styling job. It's important to emphasise that the key consideration in property styling is the return on investment. Styling a home for sale can make a significant impact on the outcome, potentially leading to a quicker sale and an increased final sale price, often ranging from 5% to 10% or even more. At Upstyle Home Staging, our pricing is flexible and can range from $2,000 to $6,000 or more, depending on the specific requirements of your property. This pricing encompasses selections, packing, installation, styling, hire, and removalist services. We provide a free quote for home styling, during which we assess your property and customise the pricing accordingly.
  • How are selections for property styling made?
    Our team of interior stylists and designers takes great care in selecting items for each property, ensuring a one-of-a-kind and personalised look for each client. Our inventory is continually refreshed within our warehouse, assuring that every property we style retains its distinct character. We have a strong dedication to sourcing our inventory from local suppliers in South Australia and across Australia, and we're proud to possess the most extensive collection of high-quality furniture and accessories in South Australia. The process of selecting items is a gratifying aspect of our work, as our team diligently matches the style to suit the property, the market, and the potential buyer.
  • Who will actually style my home?
    At Upstyle Home Staging, the person you meet during your initial consultation will be your dedicated partner throughout the entire process. They will oversee and execute your service, ensuring a seamless experience from beginning to end.
  • Can I use some of my own furniture for styling?
    Certainly, we offer partial styling packages that enable the inclusion of a client's preexisting furniture into the overall design scheme.
  • Is partial styling cheaper than full styling?
    It's not always the case. Prices for partial stylings can differ based on the specific work needed, the size of the property, and the number of living spaces. A partial styling may sometimes involve more intricate work, but the final outcome is consistently unique.
  • Do I need to vacate my property while it's being styled for the campaign?
    We recognise that the process of selling your home can be quite demanding, and we're here to simplify it for you. Our intention is not to inconvenience you by requiring you to vacate your property during the campaign. Instead, we kindly request that you adhere to our terms and conditions at the time of booking to ensure the preservation of our furniture's quality.
  • Do you offer furniture storage throughout the entire campaign duration?
    At the moment, we do not provide furniture storage services, but our team is always ready to suggest suitable storage options based on your specific needs.
  • Is it possible for me to select particular furniture and accessories for my property styling project?
    When our team is tasked with styling your property, you can have confidence in our professionalism, market expertise, and awareness of current trends to guide us in making the right furniture and styling choices for your home. Nevertheless, should you have any specific preferences or requests, please do inform your stylists, and we will explore how best to accommodate them.
  • How long before selling my property, should I reserve a booking with Upstyle Home Staging?
    We advise allowing a minimum of 1-2 weeks between the quoting and installation phases.
  • Is it possible to buy furniture or accessories from Upstyle Home Staging?
    Regrettably, because of the nature of our operations, we cannot sell items from our rotating warehouse stock, which is continually in use for our stylings. Nonetheless, we are more than willing to assist in locating specific pieces upon your request. Additionally, we will be offering a 'Shop Our Look' feature on our website in the near future, where our interior designers and stylists put together various styles that can be purchased directly from our website. You will have the option to purchase individual products or an entire set.
  • Does Upstyle Home Staging have any specific affiliations with real estate agents or agencies?
    We are fortunate to collaborate with several real estate agents and agencies across Adelaide and take great pride in the lasting relationships we've nurtured. It's important to note that we do not have exclusive affiliations with specific agents or agencies. The decision to choose your preferred agent and stylists for your home sale is entirely at your discretion.
  • In which areas do you offer your services?
    We cater to a wide range of Adelaide suburbs as well as surrounding areas within a 100km radius of the CBD. Kindly specify your location when requesting a quote.
