Styling your home for sale

August 14, 2013

Now that you have made the decision to sell your home and chosen an agent, it is time to dress your home for sale.  The aim is this is to make your property most desirable.

“Home buying is as much about emotion as it is sense”

It’s essential to put yourself in the place of a potential buyer entering your home. Think of your home as a product to be marketed, it must be presented to the appropriate target audience. Before you start, attend a few open homes and learn how other vendors have presented their homes as this will give you a few ideas.

Firstly, you must de-clutter to make the rooms feel larger and look organized. . Most people have extra furniture in rooms that isn’t really required.  Keep in mind when staging that buyers want to move around your house easily. Buyers always want to know there is space, light and plenty of storage as well as being able to envisage their own things filling their new home.

If you have strong colours you may like to tone them down with some more neutral tones to make the rooms more appealing to the conservative buyer.

Well selected items of furniture, such as a dining table and chairs and a sofa and coffee table make a huge difference to a homes’ appearance. Often, older furniture should be replaced with more stylish furniture that a new buyer would be expecting to furnish the home with.
