Do you want to increase your chances of selling your home for top dollar this spring? You may be worried that this can prove difficult to pull off because spring is usually when the real estate market is flooded with other people wanting to sell their homes. Fret not. Spring brings with it a flood of home shoppers as well! If you can make your home stand out by using sensible home staging tips, you’ll be on your way to make a sale! Here are some of them!
ACCESSORIZE LIKE A BOSS!
You’ll want to use home accessories that make the home feel inviting and fresh. You can do this by swapping dark hues with lighter ones or even placing some of your personal home accessories in storage. Less is more so be sure to only keep the ones that really give character to a room or accentuate features that you want to stand out. Be sure to have some fresh flowers to truly give your home a spring vibe!
GET FLOORS PROFESSIONALLY CLEANED
Dust and dirt can build up over winter and the years you lived in your home. By having your floors professionally cleaned, you can give them back their former glory and maybe even get better offers for your home.
LET YOUR HOME BREATHE
Do you know that by simply letting air circulate in your home for a few hours before showing, you can improve the feel of your place? There is no exact science to explain this, but homes really benefit from airing. There’s a sense of renewed energy that carries over after airing. If it is still cold where you live, simply close the windows before the scheduled viewing.
SAY NO TO CLUTTER
Try to pack most of your things and keep them in closets or storage before scheduling viewings for your home. A clutter-free look without your personal belongings helps potential buyers to visualize themselves living in your space. This doesn’t mean to take off all your things but be sure to keep photographs, toiletries, and toys away. This will have the added bonus of making your rooms appear larger as well.
MAKE FIRST IMPRESSIONS COUNT
Curb appeal is real. A lot of homebuyers pay attention to how a home makes them feel upon first glance so make sure that your home is as attractive outside as it is on the inside. Hire a landscaper if you have a sizable garden. If you only have a small area, then bring in some potted plants, preferably those with blooms. You may need to trim existing trees and shrubs that are blocking windows and views too.
LET SPRING IN
Open your windows if possible and draw back your curtains. You want your home to feel light and warm. The best way to do that is by making natural light your friend.
