When selling your home, it’s vital that both the interior and exterior are immaculately presented, clean, bright and inviting. Nobody wants to enter a home that is dirty, dark or gloomy, evoking thoughts that bodies may be buried in the backyard or children locked in the basement (although, when your kids are annoying you, it is a tempting thought)!
Styling your home is vital in the selling process and, if it’s done effectively, can often be the difference as to whether the buyer signs on the dotted line, or not.
To assist you in styling your property for sale, here are 5 simple tips.
#1 Bright & Brilliant
Before putting your property on the market clean it thoroughly, especially doors and windows. This ensures the natural light filtering in will reflect off all surfaces, enhancing your home interior, and giving the impression of greater space.
# 2 Say No To Clutter
Before trying to sell, it’s time to de-clutter all of the rooms in your home. Not only will it make your home appear larger, it will also make it easier for a prospective buyer to visualise what their furniture will look like in your home.
#3 Prop It Up
Always prop up your home before selling, it’s amazing how a vase, flowers or a couple of strategically placed pieces of art or furniture can instantly turn a home interior from drab to fab! You don’t have to spend a fortune, and if it sells more quickly and helps ensure a higher return, consider the outlay an investment.
#4 Cut The Odour
The minute you enter a home, whether it’s a friend’s, a colleagues or a family member’s, you will generally notice a signature scent. Whether it’s a fresh aroma, like room deodoriser or cleaning products, or a more unsavoury scent, such as dirty washing or pets, it will unconsciously shape your perception of the living space.
When you’re preparing your property for sale, ensure the aroma is appealing, whether you place fresh cut flowers around your home, light candles or an oil burner, make sure your prospective buyer’s first impression of your home is positive!
#5 Paving The Way To Success
Ensuring the exterior of your home is well maintained is essential when styling your home for sale. This includes having your gardens beds weeded, lawns mowed and paved areas tidied. If you aren’t a fan of gardening, or don’t have the time, it’s well worth investing in a professional so that you have superior pavement appeal.
