In this video we’re going to look at my top tips for styling your home for sale.
This video isn’t the full review there’s a lot more content in the article I’ve written.
Let’s get started,
Styling your home to make it ready for sale doesn’t need to be as daunting as it may seem. There are a lot of ways to make your home more attractive to potential buyers and the more buyers love with your property the higher the price you’ll achieve.
With the use of clever interior design tips you can turn your basic property into a stunning home.
if you decide to stage your home yourself, the following tips will help you:
- Before staging complete any DIY jobs in the home you’ve started and haven’t quite finished. Remember that you’ll find a buyer faster and the sales process will be much easier if all those pesky little jobs have been taken care of.
- One of the cheapest and easiest ways to present your home is to paint it, a fresh coat of paint makes a massive difference when styling your home, select very neutral colours, the potential purchaser will feel like the property is clean and fresh and ready to move in
- Flowers and plants can add greatly to a properties appeal, strategically placed flowers can bring colour, style and pleasing fragrances to internal rooms.
- As well as using plants, artwork can also be used to bring attention to unique selling points like fireplaces. Placing them individually, in groups of three or as groups of five are what experts advise as being the most effective.
- Mirrors can work magic in more cramped areas, giving the impression that the room is much larger than in reality it is.
- Make sure you remove unnecessary pieces of furniture and declutter, On your open home days you could have lots of buyers inspect your property so you must make sure they can move through rooms easily and there feels like there’s lots of space!
- By depersonalising your property, you can enable your potential purchaser to feel like they can live in the space if they can see all your personal photographs or all your personal belongings around the property makes it very difficult for them to imagine themselves living there.
- Making your kitchen look and feel inviting is critical. Having coffee brewing or bread baking can be a subtle way of making your house smell and feel like a home. Place fresh fruit in a bowl to liven up and bring colour to the space.
- Bathrooms are an area buyers linger in – Mimic the appeal of an expensive hotel by placing scented soaps, moisturisers, or bath products on the countertop. This will make your bathroom seem luxurious.
- Before showing the home, you’ll want to remove any pets and their accessories from the premises. Let the house air out to get rid of any lingering pet odours.
- Last, but in no means least, if any repair work is needed, make sure you have this taken care of before staging your property.
Although staging takes a bit of time and effort, it can make a significant difference in your ultimate selling price. You can either take on the job yourself or hire a professional stager to set the scene.
