Are you planning to sell your house in the near future? Hoping to get the best deal for your property? There’s a lot you can do to add value to your house and sell it faster. Here are some tips that’ll come in handy as you prepare your house for home staging and showings. Keep in mind that the key to the buyer’s heart lies in connecting with all his/her five senses. Here’s what you can do to achieve this objective.
Clutter never makes an appealing sight! It makes the space look smaller, cramped, suffocating and unpleasant in every possible way. Make sure you get rid of unnecessary objects in the house before you move ahead with home staging. Give them away or store them behind locked doors and out of sight. You need to give the right impression about what it feels like to be living at your house. Organise things neatly and appropriately. It helps the buyers connect with the lifestyle they are most likely to have if they choose to purchase your property.
Freshen Up the Walls
Home staging is the perfect time to flaunt your walls with a fresh layer of likeable paint. Choose neutral and soft colours to make your house look bigger. It does not only make a good first impression on the prospective buyers, it also allows them to move in and start using the rooms immediately. It cuts their hassle of getting the house redecorated soon after moving in, making your property more desirable to prospective buyers.
And while you are at it, also rub down and apply a fresh layer of paint to any flaking timbers throughout your home. Offer a complete packaged deal for your buyers and increase the chances of them placing bids!
Fix the Scent
You don’t want your house to smell like old socks and rotten food when it is up for home staging. Freshen up the ambience using strategically placed floral arrangements or air fresheners. Don’t forget to air out your rooms to clear out any foul smells that may be lurking around. The smell plays a pivotal role in making your buyers feel welcomed!
Repair and Clean
Every property demands maintenance, and as the owner of your home, you’re most likely to have a list of small (irritating) jobs that need to be done. Well, this is the perfect time to get them out of your way! Fix those leaky faucets, replace those fused bulbs, repair the damaged door knobs, and clean out the house inside out! Don’t forget to scrub your washroom and oil your door hinges. You can use some floor polish to add life to your rooms. The idea is to make your house look attractive and perfectly livable!
It is the first thing that catches the eye when the buyers draw near your home. Make sure you invest in revamping the house exteriors intelligently. Clean the windows, uPVC conservatories, doors, window frames and exterior walls. Don’t forget to pressure-wash driveways, patios and decking. Tidy and de-clutter the garden. Make sure the exterior of your house looks just as appealing as the interior!
These tips will make your property look well-kept and well-managed. It will therefore attract more buyers and allow you to sell it off faster. It will also automatically add value to your home, enabling you to receive a higher price for your property. What more could you ask for?!
