How to style your property to sell
Have you ever fallen in love? Whether it’s with a person, a designer handbag, or a sports car, love can make you do crazy things. It’s for that very reason you want prospective buyers to fall head over heels in love with your property when it comes time to sell.
Creating that spark will not only help you to achieve a quick sale, it will also help you secure the best price possible. And if you can attract multiple suitors, it may even start a bidding war at auction that really benefits your hip pocket.
Here are our top tips for engaging prospective buyers:
Step one is always to de-clutter. Your personal clutter is going to make it more difficult for prospective buyers to clearly see the space and your home’s best features. Decluttering will make your home seem as spacious as possible, and will give buyers a blank canvas so they can start imagining where their own things will fit!
Give your home some TLC
To get the best price for your home, make sure the property is looking its absolute best which means ensuring everything is cleaned thoroughly. It’s also a good idea to take care of all the maintenance jobs, like filling cracks, retouching the paintwork and re-grouting the bathroom tiles. A little love goes a long way!
Consider giving your home a facelift
When it comes time to sell, it’s important to consider who your target audience is and what they might be looking for in a property. If you are selling the property as a ‘renovator’s dream’, you probably won’t need to do much to the property before you sell. But if you want to secure the maximum price and ensure it is snapped up quickly, consider renovating it yourself.
It’s a good idea to seek advice from local real estate agent about who would be most likely to buy your home and what you should spend your money on to impress them. If advise you to renovate, get the real estate agent to give you a property valuation first, then make a budget so you don’t over-capitalise. Consider updating the kitchen and bathrooms, and replace carpets or flooring that is dirty, scuffed or outdated, as these are the areas that tend to impress buyers the most.
Style your home for maximum appeal
For inspiration, start by checking out some of the latest décor and home magazines to find out what’s in vogue. Remember, you can take whatever accessories you buy to your new home. Alternatively, you can enquire into professionally styling your home, ask your local real estate agent who they recommend.
