The most seasoned home staging professionals in the country agree in saying that it only takes about 6 minutes to engage a potential buyer and make him give his best offer for your home. This is not an unusual feat but it can be achieved easily with the help of the right kind of property styling furniture pieces.
Marketing homes for sale are not in any way different from other traditional marketing approaches used in selling consumer and industrial products to the market. It is the same drill we have, we appeal to a potential buyer’s sensibilities by making them believe they need what we have on offer so they’d decide on their own they need to buy it. We give them the reasons why it is good for them, and they think about whether they will buy it or not.
When you stage your home to sell it up in the property market, you are mobilized by your desire to sell your property at a premium price, in the shortest time possible. When you know exactly how to make your property look appealing to a greater number of prospective buyers, you are increasing your chances to receive higher, more attractive offers in a shorter span of time. It is also possible that you could receive multiple offers.
Declutter Your Home
Declutter your home — this is your first step in the series of steps in the home staging process. This signifies that you need to depersonalize every single room inside your house if you want it to look appealing to your potential buyers. In order to get this started, you need to use the 50% rule in decluttering your indoor space.
So, for every room in your house, you need to take away the clutter, including furniture and do this to at least 50% of the items you have indoors. Think about it this way, since you are trying to sell your home, it would be better that you start to pack everything up ahead of time.
Enhance The Aesthetic Appeal of Your Indoor Space
The second phase of the home staging process after decluttering is to make your indoor space more attractive, more appealing, more inviting. Create an ambiance suitable to call it a relaxing, comfy home.
Elevating the aesthetic appeal of your home can be achieved in a sundry of ways, from the use of blinds or curtains to the addition of more lighting fixtures in dimly lit areas. Curtains and blinds help you control the amount of light you will have in an area inside your house. Installing relevant lighting fixtures will help in brightening up a gray, dull room.
Accent features will also help spruce up a room, and this may be done in the form of lighting fixtures, indoor plants, tables and chairs with pillows. Sometimes, the use of mirror accents can do the trick here. So, you need to let your creative juices and imagination work its magic here.
Consider Repainting Your Room Walls
Never underestimate the power of a newly painted wall. This is one of the most effective ways you can improve the aesthetic appeal of your home and enhance its market value, by giving your walls a fresh coat of paint.
If you are going to repaint your indoor walls only, make sure that your color of choice for the paint will be appropriate to a particular space. The second thing to consider about repainting is that it should be complementing the interior design you have in mind. Neutral colors would be most appealing to the vast majority of potential buyers.
The last thing we want to point out here has something to do with your furniture. You may have them arranged in your most preferred fashion, but if you can see a better, more practical way to arrange them, then do so.
Doing so will benefit your indoor space most especially if you have something up, a piece of furniture in the midst of a room. If you have a couch in the midsection of your living room, having them alongside a wall would free up some valuable space. It will make the room look nicer and neat.
