If you’re trying to sell your home in a slow market, you will find that it’s incredibly challenging to stand out with so many beautiful homes just like yours. To help your home sell faster, you need to go the extra mile and update your home by tweaking its décor. In this article, we go over great tips and tricks that will help you do just that.
Consider repainting your walls
Redoing the paint of every single room in your home is not a simple undertaking, but not a large one either. A fresh coat of paint that lop of decades worth of age and abuse. A fresh coat of paint also changes the look and feel of the home. You can swap between different color profiles to match the market or buyers you are trying to appeal to.
Warmer colors could catch the eyes of buyers looking for a family home, and bolder colors to people who typically live alone.
It is a rather small and often overlooked feature in a home. Make attempts to replace or improve the lighting of rooms in the house that needs it. The kitchen or study, for example, are great places to start. They both require proper lighting, as they will be used frequently. Proper lighting also highlights some of the best features of a home.
Give the entryway some love
Fixing up the entryway and making it look and feel homier is an inexpensive, quick fix that can legitimately help you sell your home faster. First impressions matter a lot. If your home’s entryway is cluttered, or some damaged furniture in view, remove it. The overall package and price you offer your potential buyers will influence their buying decision, but great pricing might sometimes not be enough. A good first impression ensures that you won’t spend the entire tour trying to convince your potential buyers that your home is worth it. A good reception will make sure you hit the ground running.
Get rid of anything visually upsetting
As we covered in the previous points, first impression matters. This rule extends to your entire home during the open house or tour you are hosting. You want your potential buyers turning you down because your home is not right for them, and not because of your ugly chair.
Remove all visually upsetting furniture from your home before entertaining buyers. You can find something to sit in its place during the showing or leave it bare.
Hire professional cleaners and leave no rugs unclean
When you show our home to potential buyers, you want every inch spick and span. Don’t leave any cabinet or appliance dusty.
While it’s doubtful that they will search your cupboards, it’s better to be prepared than not to be. Leave no corner dirty while you prepare for a showing. We also advise that you hire professional cleaners to get the job done. This way, you won’t miss anything and hurt your chances
Repair any visible damage
Cracked walls, broken tile, or faulty door handles should all be replaced before you show your homes to buyers. It helps your chances if they see that your home is as perfect as it can be before the think about purchasing it.
