With COVID-19 limiting movement and face-to-face meetings, award-winning homestaging consultancy, Dressed2Sell, has drawn on its previous experience of helping absent landlords wanting assistance with UK properties, to adapt its service for the current situation. It has created a unique remote home staging package.


According to Jane Cooper of Dressed2Sell, “People who wanted to sell before this crisis will still want to sell when it’s over. And unfortunately, some may have no choice but to sell. Currently, most of us are stuck at home, but Dressed2Sell can still help prospective home sellers to prepare their property for the market once normal business resumes and can provide expert advice and guidance, giving homeowners a sense of purpose and control.”


Co-founder, Sharon Johnston adds, “There are positive aspects about people being confined at home – they have time to focus on their property, do minor decorating, decluttering and home improvements, tidy their gardens and they are in to receive deliveries. So let’s change this problem into an opportunity!”


Dressed2Sell has experience in staging a mix of high-end apartments and houses in London and large country houses in Surrey, as well as helping landlords sell more modestly priced properties that were previously rented. Dressed2Sell’s remote staging formula has been successful in preparing properties outside of the M25 for selling as well as preparing second homes for the Airbnb holiday rental market.


The Dressed2Sell Remote Home Staging Package – How It Works

1. A mini-report with recommendations is prepared and presented to a client or agent via Skype or Zoom.

2. A detailed online shopping list of items with links to the furniture, soft furnishings and accessories required to ‘dress and stage’ the property is emailed ready for clients to purchase thirty-minute consultation by Skype/Zoom/Whatsapp either with the agent or client direct

3. Using the client’s floor plans (if available), property interior and exterior photos and ideally a video tour of the property, Dressed2Sell assesses weaknesses and strengths and recommends how it could be positioned against the local competition

4. A detailed, shopping list of all new staging items with links is provided to clients to order direct for delivery to their homes.

5. Assistance on how to best source a handyman to assemble any items or local trades can also be provided (if required and following latest government guidelines)

6. Further support is then provided once all items are delivered when Dressed2Sell helps to ‘stage-manage’ the final look by styling remotely to achieve the desired picture-perfect look

7. Finally, drawing on Sharon and Jane’s PR and marketing background, Dressed2Sell can provide added value tips on how to make the most of your online marketing by making your property stand out from the crowd in property search engine
