It’s an exciting moment when you first see that ‘for sale’ sign go up on your property or appear online for the world to see. But in order for you to sell your property quickly, you want to dress it right to give it the best chance of being snatched up. Here is a handy guide on how to stage your home for selling.
Hire Your Own Photographer
The estate agent you use for selling your home may provide you with a photographer that they use but they are not always the best at showing off your home. If you have the funds available, try hiring your own photographer to capture more natural snaps of the home that you can include amongst the generic room layout photos.
You want to play on the emotions of the buyer, so if you have beautiful photographs of the home in use, it can help them see themselves living in the house.
Remove All The Clutter
The last thing a prospective buyer wants to see is a messy property. It shows your lack of care for it, and the buyer will not likely enjoy the process of looking around the house. So before every viewing, it’s important to do a deep clean of the property if you have time. Rid the rooms of any clutter and keep everything minimal so it gives the buyer a chance to visualize themselves in the space.
Touch Up Any Scuffs
You don’t want viewers to be walking around, opening cupboards that might be hanging off their hinges or looking at walls that have scuff marks from bumping furniture into it over the years. Before you have any buyers over to look at the property, make a checklist of things you need to fix so you can make the arrangements to sort them before having any viewings.
A lot of these can be done by yourself, so save money on the cost of hiring someone if you can do it. If you want to improve the design of your home, Est Est, Inc might be a suitable option if you’re not good at interior design.
Add A Bit Of Nature
Adding a bit of nature can only improve your chances when selling your home. Indoor plants and flowers are great for brightening up a space and giving it that lived in feel. If you don’t want to spend too much money on replacing flowers every week, some quality artificial flowers will work just as well.
Try and place a bit of nature in every room and not just in the main living areas.
It’s All About The Personal Touch
Don’t think that buyers want to see a plain space with very little personal character. Keep in everything that’s been given a personal touch by yourself. That includes photo frames of friends and family or your kid’s latest artwork displayed proudly on the fridge door. It’s this that will likely encourage a sale because they can relate to themselves living in the property.
You should take pride in your home right up until you’ve handed over the keys to the new owners. Pay attention to detail and make every viewing just as good as the last when it comes to presentation.
