Property prices around Australia have been anything but stable recently, but Brisbane’s property market is certainly looking stronger than most. While prices in the city are currently subdued with a year-on-year drop of -0.51% for all dwellings, modelling from Domain Group indicates that the house prices in Queensland’s capital could rise faster than any other capital city over the next two years. In fact, BIS Oxford Economics predicts 13% property price growth by 2021. The future looks bright for Queensland’s sunny capital, and developers are looking to make the most of their investments using home staging.
Why is home staging a given for Brisbane developers?
Brisbane has seen incredibly strong internal migration rates in recent years, with many people leaving Sydney and Melbourne for a more relaxed and affordable lifestyle in a warmer climate. If developers can create a sense of that dream Brisbane lifestyle in their new properties they may well increase the chance of selling those properties for a higher price. Buyers visiting new homes don’t want to see empty shells of properties – they want to see what a queen-sized bed would look like in the master bedroom, or how they could style the kitchen when they move in. Home staging, or property styling, creates an aspirational and clear vision for the property that is clear as soon as the prospective buyer steps through the door – no brochures or hard sales talk required. It creates a feeling that life will be great here.
What does property styling in Brisbane involve?
While professional property styling in Brisbane must be tailored to each individual property and its potential buyers, there are some common elements that set this city apart from other regions. The city’s subtropical weather sees a focus on air flow and openness, so furniture and artworks should be chosen to reflect these qualities. Cool whites, neutral tones and natural fibres are beautiful options that suit many Queensland home types. The Brisbane style is relaxed, airy and light, which can work well both with calming blues and greens as well as bright colours. Our stylists will often bring in lush palms and other plants to honour the balmy surroundings and add vitality to the space.
