How Does Your Yard Look?
Your yard is very important when it comes to selling a home. Don’t forget that a good yard is something that all families look for. Even if yours is small, you can make it look appealing by getting it landscaped. You could hire professionals to do this for you, but this might dent your wallet a bit too much. So, think about shaping your bushes, painting and polishing your patio up, installing a water fixture, and adding some new plant beds, by yourself.
Curb Appeal Is Key
While touching on your house’s outer appearance, think about its curb appeal. This is probably the most important thing you’ll have to keep in mind as if a buyer doesn’t like how your home looks, he won’t enter. And even if he does, he’ll have a negative impression of it, which could throw the whole sale off. The best thing to do to amp up curb appeal is painting your home’s exterior. You could also tend to your front yard, adding a couple of new plants.
Make Your Home Look Bigger
The bigger your home is, the more it’ll sell for. You can do this by getting rid of any clutter. If you have too many pieces, don’t be afraid to store them away. What’ll help the space look bigger is also cleaning it up. Sparkling clean, potential buyers would realize how great the space is, without anything throwing them off.
Does Your Home Look Inviting?
Buyers aren’t going to like a property that doesn’t feel like home. There are a couple of things you can do to achieve this, and the best would be adding some rustic pieces, like free standing hammocks, book shelves, plants and cushions here and there. To make the space look inviting, have something cooking in the oven, it’ll create the illusion of home.
How’s Your Furniture Placed?
You need to be careful about how your furniture is place. Remember that things like your sofa shouldn’t be away from buyers. With its back turned to the side, you’d bring about a sense of being uninvited. Obviously, you don’t want that as the buyers should feel like the home is theirs.
This isn’t the only thing you should do, as you need to have focal points in every room. They’ll draw a buyers’ attention, and should be something worth their while, like an accent wall with a range of ornate pictures.
How Bright Is It?
Buyers don’t want to live in a den. Be mindful of the type of curtains you have, getting something light. Be sure to draw them as this’ll help do the trick.
