When you are ready to sell your house, you want to make sure that it sells quickly and for the best possible price too. To get the quickest sale and to get the best price, you have to think carefully about how you present and stage your home.
A well-staged property will be appealing and enticing to all sorts of buyers, and ultimately this will help you achieve a sale in a quicker time frame. You don’t need to have all of the ideas to hand, and often you can get ideas and themes from looking at show homes and new builds in your local area.
What You Need to Think About
Before changing every aspect of your house, it is important to stop and take a step back. Think about what you want to achieve and think about what you need to do to get your home looking at its best. For example, do your walls need a fresh coat of paint, or does the master suite bathroom need new grout? Taking a look at your home with a fresh pair of eyes and from a new perspective will allow you to see what needs to be done, where, and why.
Picking Color Schemes
When staging rooms within your home, schemes must be maintained. Bland or neutral colors work well, but not always in every room. When color schemes and styles for staging are used, they give a space personality and purpose, and ultimately this is what buyers are looking for. They don’t want to have to start painting walls the minute they walk in; most people want everything done and ready.
Decluttering and Storage
A cluttered home (or well lived in a family home) can put off a lot of buyers. If they see more of your stuff than they do the physical home, they may well struggle to visualize themselves living in your home. Decluttering spaces and rooms within your home and then putting items you don’t need or want into a Jacksonville storage unit will help you get spaces within your home looking clean, tidy, and well dressed. Decluttered spaces often tend to look bigger and brighter, so make decluttering a top priority.
Don’t Forget the Exterior
When you are getting your house ready to sell and you are staging the rooms and setting them up, it can be easy to forget about the exterior. However, the exterior of your home matters just as much as the interior. The curb appeal that your home has matters because this is what will draw potential buyers in.
When it comes to brushing up the exterior of your property, you need to focus on paintwork and exterior spaces. A new coat of paint will bring a frontage to life, and so too will some freshly planted pots or borders (depending on the size and style of your front area). If the front of your property does not look appealing or inviting, then you will struggle to entice buyers in.
