How to find the right property stylist for your home


From record-breaking temperatures to all time high rainfalls, the shift from summer to autumn has certainly been quick! With a new season brings a change in the property market as well as an opportunity to maximise the cooler weather and end of day light savings.

Cameron Nicholls, Founder and Principal of Nicholls & Co Estate Agents, says, “I love this time of year. Traditionally we have seen stock levels increase and cashed up buyers now ready to take the plunge.

“In Abbotsford and the surrounding areas we are already seeing an increase in numbers through our properties as well as online enquiries. An upward trend we expect to continue through to the start of June,” said Cameron.

In order to make the most of what autumn has to offer, Cameron suggests:

  1. Clean your windows: With the recent downfalls Sydney has experienced this is even more important. You’ll be amazed at the difference it will make!
  2. Introduce autumn colours and hues: Throws, cushions and even lightweight curtains are a great way to give a home an instant lift and won’t break the budget.
  3. Twilight opens: The autumn sky sets the scene for ambient twilight property showings. Turn the end of daylight savings into a positive.
  4. Update the exterior: Trim all trees back, clear the leaves out of the gutters and make sure your property looks low maintenance, even if that isn’t the case!
  5. Create an outdoor dinning room: Use pavers to create a dedicated outdoor dining space, this time of year it’s slightly cooler and there are less insects to battle. Present an outdoor room to potential buyers before winter hits.
