If you are putting your house on the market, then you will want to achieve the best price for your home in a timeframe that suits your plans. To enjoy the best chance of success, take some time to look at your home through a buyer’s eyes and implement some of the tweaks we suggest to help you achieve your property goals.
Home Staging Helps You Prepare
House staging is becoming more popular as sellers realise that the key to selling their house is creating a space that a buyer can imagine themselves in; and when you consider that most people form an opinion about a property within just ten seconds of arriving, staging your house is sure to help.
We’ve listed some of the key considerations when you are home staging so that you can get your house up to buyer’s expectations in no time at all.
Start By Decluttering
A cluttered house is always going to put buyers off because all they will see is a mess, and this will stop them from imagining life in your house. Clear all the sides, organise your cupboards and do away with old items that you do not want to take to your new property. According to Professional Staging a delcluttered house will give your buyers confidence that the house has been well maintained and looked after.
Check the Floors
Squeaky floorboards or stains on the carpets can be off-putting so take a moment to check all your floors are clean and quiet. If you have exposed wood, then check out if the lacquer is still in good shape and get them cleaned, buffed and looking good.
Think About Throws
Luxury throws and other soft furnishings are an asset when you want to create an extra special look or feel. Carefully drape them over items of furniture like sofas and beds to give a look of comfort and style combined. Luxury cashmere blankets can take your bedding to the next level and really promote an air of elegance. Just make sure you pick a reputable supplier such as Atkinson Blankets.
Add a Rug
If a room is large and feels impersonal, then putting a rug down could add that bit of warmth you are looking for. The great thing about rugs is that they come in all different shapes, sizes, colours and materials so that you can find one to fit any space you need to cover.
Consider a Fresh Coat of Paint
If your walls have seen better days or you have a loud and creative style, then it may be a good idea to repaint using muted tones. Doing this will give the prospective buyer a blank canvas from which they can create a space that suits their needs.
Create an Airy Feel
The vast majority of buyers want to find a space that is as big as their budget can cover and one way to make your home feel large and airy is to have all the doors propped open and the windows clear and clean. Install tiebacks for curtains and if the weather is nice, crack open some well-chosen windows for some fresh air too.
Make Your Bed Look Amazing
Everyone loves the look of a perfectly staged hotel bed, and converting this look to your bedrooms will help buyers feel drawn to your property. Start by making the bed with freshly ironed linens, prop pillows up and add luxury throws and cushions to finish off the look. Try to keep everything in the same colour family so that you create a streamlined and inviting look.
Show Them it is Home
Finally, no matter how clean and tidy the space looks, it will never sell if a buyer can’t imagine living there. Things like fresh flowers, fruit and coffee all help to create the at-home feel that you want to create and show potential buyers that you have loved living there are much as they are going to.
