The Aucoot Styling Service

As experts in selling design-led homes, at Aucoot, we understand the importance of first impressions; especially when you’re appealing to buyers who are driven by aesthetics and attention to detail. The photos that feature on our website and social channels are an ideal first opportunity to make your property stand out and encourage buyers to book a viewing.

If you’re selling a property with interiors that aren’t quite ready for an Architectural Digest cover, you don’t need to see it as a barrier to achieving a sale at a price you’d hoped for. Sell your home with Aucoot and we can offer a variety of creative solutions to improve the look and saleability of your home – capturing attention for all the right reasons.

 

We can arrange for a professional stylist to stage and re-work your interiors ready for our photographer, so if your property’s filled with a tenant’s furniture or your kids have gone full-scale Jackson Pollock on the dining table, don’t let that stop you from putting your property on the market. It’s also far easier and more cost effective than shopping for new furnishings or props yourself.

A styling service can be especially useful if your house isn’t occupied. A half-empty,  home with one dining chair and a dead rubber plant doesn’t lend itself well to a buyer’s visions of kitchen discos or cosy nights by the fire. A stylist will work their magic with tasteful furniture, soft furnishings and greenery to create the vision of a carefully curated, welcoming home. It could be just the thing you need to stop buyers from scrolling straight past and start to see the space’s full potential.

 

The choice to work with an interior stylist was integral in the recent sale of an apartment in London Fields’ innovative Arthaus building. The seller came to Aucoot having unsuccessfully tried to sell with another agent. The apartment was tenanted and didn’t look as good as it could have. We saw its potential and arranged for stylist and art director Katie Phillips to spruce up the space in advance of shooting the photos. “Styling a home is not simply about filling a space with things. It’s about celebrating individuality, harnessing the homeowners energy and curating an environment that feels considered and well lived in.”  The results were transformative and led to a speedy sale at the full asking price.

“A lovingly put together home can make you feel as though you never want to leave and has the capacity to inspire creativity in others.”

If you’re thinking of selling your home with Aucoot but you’re worried about lack-lustre (or lack-of) furnishings affecting its saleability, contact us to find out how our styling service could benefit you.
