DEPERSONALIZE YOUR HOME
Remember, when staging your home you want buyers to walk through and feel like it’s their home, not yours! Oftentimes people struggle with good visual imagination. Therefore, it is strongly recommended to remove such items as family photos and other personalized memorabilia to help buyers enhance their own vision of what could be their future home.
CLEAN YOUR HOUSE
Ultimately, cleaning is the single most cost effective way to make your property more attractive to potential buyers. Put yourself in the buyer’s shoes and ask yourself would you enjoy viewing a dirty house? Cleanliness sells!
REPAIR WITHIN REASON
Before listing your home take the time to fix the little things around your home that have deteriorated or broke due to normal wear and tear. For example, fixing a torn screen, replacing leaky faucets and burnt out lights are all easy tasks which can help with your home’s overall marketability.
UTILIZE THE POWER OF PAINT
Oftentimes, strong colours hinder a person’s ability to picture their furniture in your house. Consider repainting your home with brighter but neutral colours to help further enhance the buyer perception of your home.
ADD SOME BEAUTIFYING TOUCHES TO YOUR HOME
Replacing some tattered old curtains with some fresh draperies normally makes a world of difference when marketing your home. Even little touches such as adding a few new houseplants can make your home more appealing to the buyer. Just remember you don’t have to spend a fortune to make a big difference.
