Are you getting your home ready to sell? Do you want to sell your property quickly at the best price? Then, you need to check out these affordable home staging techniques. These small changes can help your home attract buyers who are ready to offer top dollar for your home. The best part of these home staging techniques is you can do them whenever you want. After completing these staging tricks, many people have decided to keep their home rather than sell it and purchase a new home.
Paint is Your Friend
A fresh coat of paint is the best way to enhance your home’s marketability. Even if you have painted your home in the latest neutral colors, it can develop wear marks and scuffs over time. These marks can make your home feel unkempt. Furthermore, an unusual color can limit the appeal of your home to buyers. Grab a few gallons of warm white or sand colored paint and take your home to the next level.
Light It Up
If your home has any dated light fixtures, it is time to change them. If your home has light fixtures that are more than 15 years old, they should be replaced unless they are vintage or antique lighting fixtures. You do not need to spend a lot of money on new lighting fixtures. Just get simple, modern light fixtures that go with your home’s current decor.
Declutter Your Home
Before you list your home, remove all personal items, such as collectibles and photographs. If you have any mismatched furniture that seems to clutter an area, donate it or place it in storage. You will also want to pare down your closet so that you can showcase the size of the closets. If possible, rent a storage facility to store your “extras” or better yet, donate them to a local charity. Removing these extras will help your home appear much larger. Here are some good tips.
Update Your Bathroom
Realtor Kay Grant a seller of Old Town Scottsdale Condos suggest that bathrooms can sell a home. If your bathroom is out of date, you can update it without doing a total renovation. Paint our walls white, install a new bathroom light or install neutral colored tiles for an instant update. You can also purchase a new shower curtain and a new bath mat to refresh the area. Finally, place fresh flowers in your bathroom before any showing to add life to the area.
Remove Your Curtains
Are your window treatments older than 10 years old? If so, remove them at once! If you live in a location where privacy is not an issue, leave your windows bare to allow natural light to flood the room. This will make your room appear larger. If you do have privacy issues, opt for inexpensive linen or cotton drapes and tie the drapes back during a showing to maximize the room’s brightness without sacrificing privacy.
Mirrors are Great
You can make rooms appear larger and brighter with the aid of a wall mirror. For example, a square dining room can appear larger and more interesting by placing a leaning floor mirror on one wall. Brighten your entryway by using a console mirror.
