Are you thinking about putting your house up for sale, but don’t know where to begin? Afraid that it’s going to take so long to deliver or that you’re not going to get the price you want? Think of staging your house, or in other words, setting the stage for your property’s immediate buyer attention.
You need to look at both the outside and the inside of your home to be very effective. Here are 3 tips to get you underway with your home’s interior:
1. De-cluttering. One of the most critical stuff you will do is this. Thought about de-cluttering like this could be quicker and you’re going anyway, so why not start preparing now?
Pick up anything you don’t use and keep the boxes in the garage out of reach (or consider temporarily placin your unused stuff in storage).
2. Organizing the closets – bringing together matching colours, trousers together, dresses together, tops together, etc. About why? And that is going to make the closets seem wider. (Really.) An arranged wardrobe looks wider, because you want to look as open as possible in your closets.
3. Have the house look like a blueprint to you. Such that prospective customers may picture themselves and their own possessions sharing the room in your home, you want to de-personalize as soon as possible. That means minimizing anything you don’t use or use and throwing it aside. Clear all the appliances you don’t use as much as possible from kitchen counters and place them in your store room.
And the biggest tip ever? For the very first time, look at the property as a potential buyer. And what impressions do you get? Will you purchase a house? Before you put an offer on your house, what would you like to see changed?
And don’t worry about spending several thousand dollars to get your house ready to sell, and when your house sells, you’ll get it all back. In a shorter time and at the price you want, proper staging helps you sell your house.
