If you're going to put your house on the market, it's because you want it to sell quickly and are hoping to get your asking price for it. The way you stage your home will do a lot to improve your results. The following are some tips and tricks that can help you sell your home fast.
1. Improve Curb Appeal
This is advice you hear frequently. People will typically do a drive-by of your home before touring the inside. Based on what they see on the outside will determine if it's worth their time to look inside.
You can improve the curb appeal by power washing the walkways and siding. Make sure the house numbers are visible and easy to read. Plant attractive flowers, mow the lawn, and wash the windows. Stain or repaint the porch.
2. Get Your Home Professionally Cleaned
Gleaming windows and shiny floors are attractive. Every surface in your home should shimmer. If you have a larger home, hire professionals. This will make it easier for you to put your best foot forward.
3. Get Rid of Clutter
If you really want to stage your home, throw away the clutter. If you don’t want to throw away the things that are causing clutter, then get a storage unit. Stash away the things that are cluttering your home to take them with you to your new place.
A potential home buyer will not be impressed by the fact that clutter is your style. Your goal is to sell the home and not showcase your style.
4. Give Your Home a Lived-in Feel
You don’t want your house to look and feel like a museum. You want to display family pictures and other elements that make your home appealing. Flowers, fresh fruit in a bowl on the table, and other small knickknacks can make the home feel warm and inviting. You want potential buyers to feel like they could live there.
5. Spruce up Your Dining Room Table
Most people overlook the dining room table. A large dining room table can present a bare and unattractive space. You can add a few elements to make the dining room table look more inviting. Avoid oversized arrangements. They have a stiff and formal appearance. Try decorating the table with smaller vessels to give it a welcoming look.
6. Rearrange your Furniture
You may have the furniture in your home laid out in a way that is comfortable for you. However, if you want your home to sell, you should lay out the living room symmetrically. Furniture should be pulled away from the walls and paired up. You want to create an inviting area for conversation and entertainment.
Selling your home requires work, planning, and staging. However, when it is done correctly, it can speed up the sale of your home.
