Selling Your Property? Make Your House More Like A Home With These Helpful Tips

property investment

When you’re selling a well-loved family home, you’re not just selling a blank canvas. It’s impossible to clear out your property at the will of prospective buyers so they can imagine their own furniture and style in every room.

Selling a family home isn’t just the prospective sale of bricks and mortar, but also a lifestyle, the happy memories you had there and the idea that any prospective buyer could also be just as content within those four walls as you are. Highlighting and intensifying the look and feel of your family home doesn’t mean leaving your washing piled high in the corner, or the kids’ toys all over the floor. There are plenty of subtle ways you can sell a happy and loving family home – check out these helpful tips!

Add Some Memories

When was the last time you updated the pictures on your walls? When you’re selling a home, you’re not just selling a building but also the lifestyle and positive energies that go with it. Therefore, updating your photos and wall art with these canvas prints can help you emphasize this imagery. Happy moments in the garden, or the kitchen – or even photos of your family enjoy local areas and places of interest. It’s a subtle detail that really strikes a chord with people looking to raise a family in a safe and homely environment.  

Fix All Those Little Things

That leaky tap, wobbly door handle and scuffed gloss on the bannister might not even cross your mind these days, but to a prospective buyer looking for a family home, they’re going to be major red flags. If you want to sell your home successfully, you need to have an eye for detail which means fixing all those little things you’ve been putting off the last year or so.

Give Your Garden Some TLC

A family home usually means a garden or outdoor space that the family can enjoy together. If you want to sell your home quickly, then highlighting this space as a valuable part of the property is essential. The outdoor space should never be an afterthought, so tidy up your borders, replenish your gravel, remove any old and weather-damaged garden toys and keep them out of sight. If possible, update your seating area by bringing the indoors – outside. Add a rug, some new loungers and create an enjoyable space the whole family will love.

Clear Away Clutter

Family homes mean clutter on clutter. And even though you’re selling a family home, prospective buyers mustn’t be put off by mountains of junk and dusty objects on cluttered surfaces. Where possible, keep clutter to a minimum and ensure your home is clear, clean and inviting.

Final Thoughts…

As a seller, your job is to sell not just the property itself, but the potential years of happiness it could bring. Follow these steps above to help prospective buyers see themselves in your home!
