Staging your home when selling
Your property needs to shine to stand out from the crowd when you’re selling your home.
A well-staged home not only looks great, but it attracts more buyers. When you’re applying for a new job and preparing for your first interview, chances are you are considering your wardrobe and your appearance for the big day. You are going to want to look the part and put your best foot forward. The same logic applies when selling your home. House hunters will most likely be checking out a few properties that fit their criteria. And yours will need to shine and stand out from the crowd. When listing your home for sale, ensure that it is looking its best and has that ‘I can see myself living here’ vibe.
Top tips to make your home stand out
Here is our list of 8 things you can do to help your home stand out before presenting it to buyers:
1) Put as many of your personal items away.
2) It’s essential to look at your property from the road and make sure it has curbside appeal.
3) Review your property with a handyman and list all the defects that need to be rectified, e.g. patching cracks in the walls, leaking taps, loose fittings and creaky doors.
4) Check your property inside and out to see if it needs a fresh coat of paint. If it does, keep the colours neutral, which appeals to more buyers.
5) Clean your property from top to bottom, including windows and window coverings.
6) Tired and worn floor coverings will not sell a house, and it is money well spent to update them before putting your home on the market.
7) Consider a qualified interior designer/property stylist who can give you valuable advice on presenting your home for the maximum price.
8) Have fresh flowers or greenery on display during open for inspections.
