Property Makeover

We Do Property Makeovers!

Grace Estate Agents are a full service real estate agent, covering all your property needs from property styling to renovations and of course preparing your house for sale on the Central Coast and Sydney’s Upper North Shore.

Our Makeover Division

Our team of professionals are well equipped to address any concerns you may have when bringing your home to the market:

  • When is it overcapitalising?
  • Does our home really need any improvement for a great sales result? (Sometimes not, but it pays to be informed. Our consultation is totally obligation free).
  • What type of person is likely to be purchasing your home and what would they be looking at?
  • Do I have to spend a lot to improve my home?

Please note we also have an experienced builder on team, with a background in carrying out pre-purchase inspections for purchasers, so he is well able to point out areas that are likely to slow or effect your selling price. It is so beneficial to address any areas of concern prior to listing in order to maximise your home’s value.

Property Makeovers

Maximising Your Property Investment

It’s not hard to understand that well-presented properties sell or rent for more.  So why don’t all vendors and landlords invest in improving their properties? Often they’re not sure what to target for the best returns, don’t have the DIY skills, find it difficult to engage contractors or are simply ‘time-poor’. That’s where we can help.

We understand that small investment in the right areas can make a big difference to the value of your investment.  

Our in-house team has the knowledge, experience and skills to carry out a makeover on your property, and, you’ll be surprised how quickly things can be achieved. Let us design a custom plan for your property and manage the process for you. 

    Sell for more – Present your property in its best light

    All improvements should be focused on things that will appeal to your potential buyers, with the money spent where it produces the greatest price uplift.

    • Clean up, declutter, paint or plant
    • Add natural light or update your light fixtures
    • Improve the ‘flow’ to make your home more liveable
    • Neutralise buyer’s objections, such as poor street appeal, obvious maintenance issues, lack of privacy or concerns with safety and security
    • Address problem areas so the buyer’s building report doesn’t hurt your bottom line just before the finish line
    • Styling that captures your buyer’s aspirations; adding our expert touches, accessories and artworks to your furniture and fixtures.

    Property Styling

    First Impressions Count!

    Show off your property in the most appealing light with our home staging service. Our property stylist can add valuable touches to maximise your home’s appeal and potential return. This includes:

    • Furniture hire
    • Artworks provided
    • Indoor plant hire
    • Stylish accessories 
    • Extra lighting to brighten rooms
