Are you preparing to sell your real estate? If you’ve been thinking of selling your home, you should make sure that you take full advantage of home staging trends. Here’s a few ideas of what you can do if you home has some of the latest features?
Nearly every buyer shopping in the City of Alexandria wants to live in a clutter-free space. However, for many sellers, the idea of sorting through and removing all that unused stuff can feel like a tiring and intimidating chore. Here are a few tips to make decluttering is easier than it seems, and help you sell your home quickly for the best price.
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.
Box up anything you don’t use on a daily basis. You’ll need to box it to move it anyway and small things take up an inordinate amount of space. This includes collectibles, kitchen gadgets, tools, jewelry, photos, toys and tech.
Are your blinds and curtains going to help your house sell?
Take down black-out shades and heavy curtains. Replace them with sheer curtains that cut down on glare but let the light in the home.
It’s about time to sell your property. Does that mean it’s time to think about your interior color scheme?
Paint is a pretty easy change to make. And, the wrong color inside or out can turn a buyer off from the entire house. On the other hand, the wrong color is relatively easy to correct.
If you want to sell your house with minimum hassle and at a maximum price, it’s critical that the home presents a good first impression. No decor or design choice is more important than your paint scheme.
Your home is your most personal space in your life. But when it’s on the market, it’s no longer a home. It’s a townhouse for sale and it will soon be someone else’s home.
When you decide to sell, it’s time to return the home to a less personal space.
What do stagers mean by depersonalizing to your home to sell it?
Consider these ideas:
- Paint a picture with outdoor furniture. A deck, porch, balcony or patio can come to really be enticing.
- Replace your light bulbs with higher wattage bulbs. Brighter light bulbs make a big difference when your selling a home.
- Do you need design ideas? Visit Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware, or Williams-Sonoma. You may already have what you need to look absolutely in style.
- Furniture can leave an imprint in the carpet. When this happens you can put medium-sized ice cubes in the tracks. When the ice melts, the compacted carpet will expand and erase those imprints.
