Selling their property fast and for top dollar is a dream most sellers share. In order to achieve that goal, you need to create a warm, attractive house that potential buyers can call their home.
Here are 4 home staging secrets you can use to draw buyers in and sell your house fast.
Less is more
When staging your home for sale, less is more. As you prepare to put your house on the market, we suggest that you pack up your things and get rid of all the things you no longer use or need. The same goes with your furniture.
You don’t need a lot of furniture to make your home attractive. In fact, it does the opposite. Too much stuff will make your house look smaller and cramped. Whisk away some of your furniture and just leave a few core pieces behind. The house will look more spacious and organized this way.
Make it bigger
Let’s face it. Not all of us live in a big house. Some are having a hard time fitting all their belongings in a small space. The good news is that there are plenty of ways to make a room appear bigger.
To create the illusion of spaciousness, opt for a lighter colored wall and flooring. Another option is to put some shelves near the ceiling. Not only will it provide additional storage space, it also draws the eyes upward; thus, making the room look bigger than it really is.
Proper lighting plays a huge role in the comfort and liveability of your interior space. Lighting also has an effect on the perceived size of the room. In fact, rooms that aren’t well lit feel smaller and cramped. No one wants to live in a house with dark and cramped rooms.
Find ways to bring in full-spectrum lighting to your interior space. Clean the windows and pull back the curtains. Let as much natural light in. Also, increase the wattage in your lamps and light fixtures. Remember, great lighting makes a staged home look warm and welcoming.
Use color creatively
Colors, when used correctly, can liven up your house. So don’t be afraid to incorporate colors into your interiors. You can paint an accent wall to breathe life into your living room. Another option is to add some accessories for a pop of color. From decorative pillows to art pieces, accessorizing will make your house look more attractive. Make sure, though, that you paint the walls a neutral color.
