About Lorna Farrell

Lorna graduated as a home stager in 2010 through Australian CSP, the training provided by CSP Staging Training Academy, the leading staging training company in North America. She works with successful professional real estate agents and home-owners, in Coffs Harbour and surrounding areas, who want to sell their homes quickly and at the best possible price. The home staging process, also known as property styling, is not only about decorating, it’s about getting your house sold. As a real estate staging professional, she has the same goal as you – to get the buyer to make the best offer, and quickly!

Today’s buyers are well-informed and have high expectations. They make a decision in the first few seconds of entering your property. They are ready to move on to the next one on their list if yours is just not up to scratch, or doesn’t look well-maintained, or has too many distractions, like clutter or overpowering wall colours or art.

Lorna sees her job as helping to relieve you of the stress of preparing your house for sale by performing this all-important aspect of marketing your property. Staging it to show it off in the best possible light to appeal directly to your target market is what gets the sale over the line. When you make that great first impression potential buyers can imagine themselves living in the house.

Even a well-loved house needs some staging. Sometimes all your property needs is depersonalizing or editing, and by removing some items and rearranging the space, it can make a huge difference. She tries to use your own things first and if your rooms could benefit from modern accessories to make it more appealing, she will advise you on which items to purchase e.g. cushions or new bed-linen, which you can then use in your new home, after the house has sold.

Lorna is a specialist in staging vacant houses and owns an extensive inventory of quality contemporary furniture, rugs, lamps, cushions, artwork, bed-linen and beautiful accessories, which is available for staging hire, at very affordable rates. She is constantly adding to and updating her stock and now has three warehouses of furniture, and is the largest staging furniture-hire company in Coffs Harbour and surrounds. This is great news for real estate agents and for home-owners who previously had to hire from Brisbane or Sydney.

Whether you are still living in your property, or whether it’s vacant, or a new-build spec home or a rental property, she can help you to get it looking its best so buyers, or tenants in respect of a rental property, can make an emotional connection, and get them closer to making that offer.

Statistics show that when a house is correctly priced, that the presentation i.e. staging and showcasing, vastly improves the chances of a good offer. It doesn’t matter whether your property is on the market for $300,000, $500,000, $700,000, $1 mil, $2 mil or higher, it has been proven that staging works and can make all the difference in shortening the time it takes to sell, and helping you achieve the best price.
