Buyers want to be able to envision themselves living in a home. While you may love your orange wall, some buyers won’t be able to see past the paint color. Take some time to stage your home and get it sold fast!
Here are our 5 tips for making buyers buy your home:
Start packing before your home is on the market. Pack away knickknacks, books and last season’s clothes. Make sure your surfaces such as countertops, dining room tables and vanities are completely clear and your closets are well organized. Buyers are going to be opening closets and cabinets and you want them to like what they see.
Make it Flow
Pull your furniture away from the wall and create groupings in the middle of the room. This will make the traffic flow of the room more obvious and the space feel more user-friendly. When you open up the walls, the room will feel larger.
If your home has an extra room without a specific purpose, consider giving it a quick, and inexpensive, transformation. You can create a meditation room, reading room or even a basic office with just a few pieces. Show the buyers the full potential of your home by being creative.
Traditionally neutral has referred to mostly beige, but these days neutral can range from warm honey to soft blue-greens. If you have bold accent walls in your home, take a day to paint over them with a neutral color to help increase your offers. It may be hard to let the lime green wall go, but remember, covering it up will help make the selling process less painful.
Scrub it Down
You want to get your home up to a white-glove standard. Before your first showing, dust all your window sills, clean your blinds (here’s how) and give your bathroom an extra scrub. You want buyers looking at what your home has to offer and not focused on the ring in the toilet bowl. Before each showing, take a few minutes to go back through the house and get it up to standard.
With these few tips, your home will be ready to fly off the market! It’s important to put in some elbow grease to save headaches on the other side. If you have additional questions about staging your home, get in touch today!
