Selling your home is usually a long process that involves a lot of viewing and paperwork, unless you happen to be lucky enough to meet prospective buyers from the start. You may know all the good things about your house but these viewers do not know and it’s up to you to help showcase your home in the best way.
1. Declutter Your House
Having a messy house will only give a bad impression to any prospective buyers and you definitely don’t want that to happen. Not only will a deep declutter make your house look neat and clean, it has the added benefit of making your eventual move to a new home easier as you don’t have so many things to pack.
2. Add Real Plants Everywhere
Fresh, green plants make the house look lively and well cared for, which is exactly the image that you want to project. Of course, one of the key things to remember is that you must make sure that the plants in your home are alive and look good for this to work.
3. Paint Your Walls
If you have peeling wallpaper or cracks in your paint then now is the best time to refresh the walls with a nice, new coat of paint. Although it may seem like a waste of money to paint the walls because you are moving out soon, you will find that doing this can fetch a higher price for your house.
4. Make Your Beds
You should already know that making your bed every morning when you wake up is one of the best habits you can cultivate but if you are expecting viewers and real estate agents anytime, then you should keep up with this habit. It makes your room look neat and cosy which is what you want buyers to see.
5. Create a Cohesive Look
You need to create balance and consistency in your home which can be done by taking into consideration the overall theme of your home. Consider the colours, contrast and general style of your accessories and decorate accordingly.
6. Keep Your Doors Open
Make your home feel more welcoming to any prospective buyer by keeping the doors open so that they can be impressed by their first glance. You also need to make sure that the doors themselves work well and are painted nicely too.
