A property that isn’t staged may sell if properly prices. On the other hand, a staged home will sell faster and for more money.
It's no secret that a home that is stuffed with personal chattels is a home that will be harder to sell.
You can hide a lot of clutter using organization solutions, but in the end boxes, containers and racks are tools that can guide, but they aren't magic. Some stuff will just have to go into storage.
Does decluttering seem a little overwhelming? That's probably because you need a system. I suggest you try the “category method”. Go into each room with these four categories: trash, give away, keep, or relocate. Each and every item should go into one of these categories. You'll thank yourself on moving day and on the day we ratify your contract to sell.
In addition to removing your clutter, it's almost always a good idea to depersonalize.
It's time to sell. That means it's time to erase your personal touches.
When someone looks at your detached home, they're trying to decide if this will be their home.
Are your blinds and curtains going to help your place of residence sell?
The only thing worse than a non-functional blind, is a partially functional blind. Blinds that don't work obscure your views, impede light and frustrate home shoppers.
What are the best paint colors for selling a property in Alexandria?
Have you ever noticed that builders go with a simple color scheme? Unlike most property owners, builders sell a lot of houses and they have learned, as my experience has taught me, that a simple color scheme is best.
Because we also do a lot of property management, I can recommend several painters in Fairfax County for you to price out a paint job.
Here's curated more suggestions:
- A little potpourri in the bathrooms can help the room's appeal.
- Arrange furniture to maximize floor space but to create conversation zones where a buyer can imagine chatting with friends or family.
- Flowers can brighten a room. A strategically placed plant can be an outstanding focal point.
- Dried flowers and candles in complementary colors are an inexpensive way to add interest in a nondescript bathroom.
