Boost curb appeal
Something you always hear when you’re about to sell a house to pay attention to the curb appeal, and rightfully so. Did you know that many buyers won’t even get out of the car to look at a house if the house lacks curb appeal? However, fear not! This is easily managable by mowing your lawn, washing the walkway and front windows, repaint the porch and hang easy-to-read house numbers. A little bit of hard work is sure to pay off in the end!
Get to cleaning!
The next stage is cleaning the inside of your house, making it sparkling clean so the potential buyers can truly see every detail of the house, all the space and what they can get for that price. Don’t forget that buying a house is an investment so you should take in consideration the caution behind each buyer. Make your house welcoming and clean and they won’t have a doubt when it comes down to their decision.
Clear away all clutter
If you really want to sell your house, clearing away all clutter and leaving as much room as possible is simply a must. Buyers get the chance to really realize the size of the rooms, and, of course, clutter is just unattractive overall. Clean and clear surfaces, floors, cupboards and closets mean more space in the house so clear or throw away anything that is unnecessary. It will be way worth the trouble!
Careful furniture arrangement gives you the opportunity to create a spacious environment while also showing a buyer how to use awkward spaces We suggest pulling most furniture away from the wall and placing it in ways that facilitate conversation, giving it that inviting look that we all want to see in our future house. All unnecessary furniture should go into storage while your house is on the market.
Choose sophisticated neutral colors
Now is not the time to experiment. Create a sophisticated space with neutral colors that will be appealing to everyone. We don’t mean you should go all white, but neutral colors such as beige or mocha are always a good choice, and you can easily pair it up with one or two accessories that stand out a bit more and complete the look.
Open the closets!
Closet space can make it or break it to someone that is looking for a house, so show off your closet space like never before! Of course, aim to have some open space on your close to give it a feeling of more spaciousness, but don’t forget to show off just what your closet can handle. Even if there will be clothes you need to store away in boxes somewhere, it’s worth it when visitors will open your closet and be wildly surprised by how spacious it is. This might be a key selling point when they make the ultimate decision.
Create a lifestyle people will be excited for!
Be smart and creative! If your house visitors and potential buyers are searching for a house in your area is because there is some appeal to it. Search for that appeal and incorporate it in your home. If you live in a quite and grassy suburb, a hammock in your backyard and even setting up a few blankets to showcase the possibility of making picnics or other activities, is a perfect choice.
Don’t forget the lighting!
If you have a lot of natural light in your home, let that light shine into the interior! When buyers visit your house, they want to see every corner and every detail. Keeping your house well-lit is a must when you have it on the market so take advantage of natural light. Take down heavy drapes and replace them with lighter ones, open all of the window coverings before a house showing, think about using lamps to create a mood in a room… All of these will make it easier for the potential buyers to make a decision in the end.
