Renovations, styling and return on investment

If you’ve ever stayed in a holiday rental property, you’ll know how important great styling and imagery is for bookings.  We hear it (and see it) again and again – how holiday homes and apartment reservations are affected by the images shown on the booking sites.  

Those that are styled well and have had professional photos taken are booked far more often than those that look tired and dated, with photos that are less than, well, beautiful!  

You’d also be amazed to hear how room rates and guest satisfaction are affected as well. All in all, these greatly impact the property’s success as an investment – a point not to be taken lightly.

Updating your holiday rental, whether it’s a full or partial refurbishment or simply new furniture and furnishings, will in turn keep your investment healthy.  We have renovated and styled many properties over the years, both owner occupied and rentals, and it’s a task we truly enjoy. If you own an investment property that needs some attention, allow us to bring some joy back into it. 

We recently re-visited a holiday apartment we renovated with a fabulous local builder 1 year ago for interstate clients at a prominent holiday destination on Hastings Street - it was amazing to see how well everything looked 12 months later. This apartment is heavily booked (and re-booked), which is fabulous news for our clients and their investment and it was great to see that the furniture and furnishings were holding up so well to holiday use (and abuse!).

This apartment went from being a dark 2 bed, 1 bath to a 2 bed, 2 bath apartment, now light filled and stylish.  The Property Managers frequently show the apartment (when it's available) to potential investors and property owners considering their own renovations and report back with only positive feedback. This apartment was a win-win for all involved and the refurbishment & furnishings have given a great return on investment for our clients.

"The feedback we have received from guests and other owners that have viewed the apartment has been fantastic. This apartment is now the most requested apartment in Fairshore. The renovation has also increased the nightly rental amount and property value substantially."
