Are you getting ready to list your detached home? One reason sellers like to stage their home is because staged properties usually sell faster and for more money. What do staging professionals recommend you do if your detached home isn't updated with the latest fixtures?
Home buyers make offers on homes where they can imagine living. It's easiest for a property seeker to imagine his belongings in the property when there are fewer of your belongings in the detached home.
Countertops, console tables, open-shelving , tabletops, bed side tables—because any flat surface—looks best with as little as possible on display. These items are personal in nature and might not be of any interest to a home shopper.
Every day fill a box with stuff. Not only will this make your home more presentable, but it will also make moving day less stressful and easier to manage.
What paint colors appeal to buyers in Alexandria?
It's a good idea to paint before you put a home on the market. This is one of the most cost-effective home improvements you can do.
We all know that neutral colors are not exciting, but you should also know that they are best when you're selling your home.
When you decide to sell, you have to think seriously about removing some of your personal indulgences.
Your home is a personal statement about who you are. But when you put your home on the market, it's no longer your home. It's a product for sale.
How can you make it easier for the buyer to envision your property as his or her home?
Have you thought about how the right window treatments can improve your home's overall appeal?
If your windows are hiding behind cumbersome drapes and other coverings, now's the time to take them down. Leave your windows bare, or hang sheer linen curtains.
Here's a couple of more inputs:
- Place fancy hand towels, perhaps with decorative ribbon around them, on towel racks in the bathroom or kitchen for a splash of interest.
- Buyers will be impressed if the laundry room is fresh, inviting, and organized. Make sure light bulbs are working, and hide soaps in a cupboard or line them neatly on a shelf.
- If your kitchen is a little drab you can add a lot of color by placing some candy in clear canisters. Jelly beans, coated candies, foil wrapped candies can all add interest to photo and a room.
- I often think that cinnamon and vanilla are the best smells when trying to sell a home. You can let these toast in the oven on the day of an open house.
