When it comes to selling your home, it can be stressful. You’re trying to pack, keep your kids happy, and ensure that your home is viewing-ready, all while searching for your new family home.
To save you time, reduce stress and help your home sell faster, here are the areas to focus on when selling.
Hide the Clutter
When a potential buyer comes to see your home, you want them to focus on the beautiful space, not what’s in it. This means clearing away your clutter.
Put away dishes, hide your children’s toys, hang clean washing, and take down some of the personal items on display. This will make your home feel more neutral and pleasing to the eye.
Set the Dining Table
One of the best ways to sell your home is by providing viewers with a lifestyle. Sure, the living room floor may be constantly covered in toys and most nights you might eat dinner on a tray, but they don’t need to know that!
Perhaps the simplest way to do this is by dressing your dining table. Add place settings, fresh flowers and inject a pop of colour with place mats or a runner, to create a stylish, usable area.
Carry Out Repairs
Every home has jobs that need doing. Maybe you’ve been meaning to repair the curtain rail in your bedroom, sort out the dripping shower head, fix that creaking floor board, or finally repaint the area where your kid went rogue with a crayon.
Although these are little jobs, buyers will notice, and it could put them off. Take a few hours to sort these out and it could help sell your home.
Keep it Smelling Fresh
You might have been in a rush last night and brought in a takeaway, or perhaps you enjoyed a Sunday morning bacon sandwich, but viewers don’t want to smell this.
Before viewings, make sure your home smells warm and inviting. Plug in a diffuser, create your own nature-inspired air freshener, or if you really want to wow, do some baking.
Add Extra Light
The amount of light in your home can affect the ambience, making it feel warm and cosy, or cold and small. To showcase your home, make sure your lighting is up to scratch.
Open curtains to increase natural light, place mirrors opposite windows to reflect, and add lamps to dark corners or draw the eye to focal features.
Selling your home can be difficult, but it doesn’t need to be. Hopefully these tips will help you!
