4 Ways to Help Your Home Sell Faster
Staging your home for your upcoming house sale and move is essential. With excellent home staging, your home will likely be sold and off the market quickly. In addition, solid home staging can help your home sell for more money.
Here is a guide with some quick tips for staging your home to sell fast.
1. Increase Your Home’s Curb Appeal
It's common for people to drive by a house first and decide on the spot if it's worth looking at more closely. Therefore, you should do all you can to impress home-buyers driving by. Take a look at these simple steps:
Trim the yard and add fresh sod in bare areas.
Plant flowers, shrubs, and fresh greenery in pots to add color.
Place house numbers that are bold and easy to read.
Repaint or replace the mailbox.
Stain or repaint the porch or front door.
Make the windows sparkle.
Power wash the walkways and siding.
Ensure that the front step and porch areas are inviting to those checking out your home. Place a clean, new welcome rug and some minimal outdoor furniture. These will help bring a welcoming touch.
2. De-Personalize the Inside
Home staging is crucial in grabbing buyers' attention, but the trick is to present a cozy feel but a blank slate so that potential buyers can visualize themselves living there. As you prepare your home, try to depersonalize it as much as possible. For example, start by packing your personal items like family photos, certificates, trophies, religious items, and kids' toys first to make your home more neutral.
Make sure you remove any stained rugs or furniture. Then store away clothes and knick-knacks to minimize clutter. Finally, ensure that the kitchen and bathrooms are extra clean and you put away towels and accessories before a showing.
3. Create an Ambiance
Making minor changes to a room can significantly impact its ambiance. For instance, replace bed linens and towels with new crisp white ones. Candles and scented oil diffusers are also good ways to create a warm, friendly atmosphere.
4. Brighten Things Up
Generally, potential buyers appreciate the light, bright rooms. Avoid dark corners and spaces by removing heavy curtains and opening the blinds for your real estate showings. Turn on all the lights in your home to brighten it up—even if it’s a sunny day! This will give your home a bright, welcoming atmosphere.
Consider painting darker rooms with a light neutral color. A fresh coat of paint will also dramatically impact and show off your well-kept space. Certain wallpaper might also drag the area down. Consider removing it for a more significant, positive impact.
Use real houseplants when staging your home too. They provide positive energy and provide an at-home feeling.
