Why presentation is key

23 March 2024

When it comes to selling your home, presentation should be the number one priority if you want to attract supreme interest and the best possible sale price – even in Perth’s hot property market.

From tending to outstanding maintenance, to giving a thorough clean and declutter, and staging, how well you present your property will be key to achieving a top result.

Here are some suggestions if you want to showcase your home at its best:

Sparkling clean

A deep clean that pays attention to detail and includes minimising household clutter from sight, is paramount to helping your home to look its best.

If you don’t have the time or inclination to do it yourself, seek out a professional to conduct a deep clean and remove clutter to simplify spaces and get them looking clear and fresh.


Ensuring the general upkeep of your property is up-to-date will showcase it as a loved home and help put the minds of prospective buyers at ease that they won’t have to deal with unexpected maintenance costs.

If your paintwork or carpets are looking a bit tired, consider splashing around a fresh coat of paint or throwing down new flooring. If your eaves have peeling paint or need some attention, give them some TLC.

General maintenance should also extend to the gardens and lawn, particularly the front yard, because first impressions matter and buyers will form opinions on your home from the moment they set foot on the property.


Engaging an expert to stage and style your home will give buyers the opportunity to visualise themselves living in the property, rather than amongst your personal possessions.

Staging can create a homely feel without having the ‘lived-in clutter’, an will helps give buyers an idea of how they can style areas themselves to maximise the space and functionality of the floor plan.

You may also consider styling your home to suit the demographics of your neighbourhood. For example, if young families are looking for homes in your area, or if your penthouse apartment would appeal to a professional buyer, think about setting up rooms that would add value to these buyer cohorts, like a play room for children or a dedicated office space.

Professionally staging your home before listing it on the market has also shown to improve the stakes of a higher sales price, no matter the market conditions.
