Expert advice

As your building manager, the dedicated team at Alliance City Living can offer help and advice for property staging to make sure your property is highly attractive to the right tenants. Because we know our buildings inside out, we understand what prospective tenants are looking for - and how best to present it to them.

We can offer you bespoke up-to-the-minute advice on how to effectively stage your home before we undertake any viewings on your behalf.

Fixtures and fittings

We work alongside industry leading providers who can, if required, supply you with some of the best fit design options with exclusive furniture packs and made to measure window coverings. We will support you at every step of the way with this – from the moment you purchase to the installation and maintenance of the items prior to, and during, a tenancy.

Make space

You should arrange the furniture in your apartment to make sure that the walking area is as expanded as possible. You should give those viewing the property the space to navigate through the property so that they can visualise how they will best use the room. Make sure that the whole space is as free from clutter as possible to make it look more spacious.

Clean air

If your property has been vacant for a while, there is chance that it could be suffering from a musty smell. This may well be off-putting for potential tenants, but can be easily dealt with to clear away the offending odour. Start by giving the property a good airing; you should also make sure any carpets are thoroughly cleaned. If the smells are stubborn you may need to repaint the walls. A scented candle can also help to leave a pleasant smell and ambience for any important viewings.

Stay neutral

You need to remember that one of the biggest goals of home staging is to let potential tenants visualise themselves living in the apartment. The simplest and most effective way to help that is to keep the colours as neutral as possible.  So, it is wise to avoid including too many statement pieces which may cloud potential tenants opinion of the space.
