Store your Items and Sell Your Home Faster
Are you having trouble selling your home? Maybe your house has been on the market for some time and you’re wondering why nobody sees your lovely home the way you do. Could it be possible that your home seems cluttered to the outside viewer?
Home staging is an important component to successfully selling a home – and according to a recent Royal LePage House Staging Poll, there is a common list of measures that can be taken to prepare a house for a successful sale.
Here’s a few ideas that are cost-effective and non-invasive to help you boost your buying criteria.
First Impressions Really Do Count
To freshen and de-clutter your home – put things away in storage or lose them entirely.
If you’re not ready to throw out certain items, put them into a storage unit! This is a great way to keep big furniture, electronics, and larger items that are weighing your home down.
Creating the illusion of space is key – the buyer wants to feel like they have options with the space in front of them. If your home is covered in items – how will they truly get to see the space of their new potential home?
Putting your items away in storage will also allow you to thoroughly clean areas of your home, giving it a fresh, uncluttered look.
You may even notice during the cleaning process that a wall that once had a shelf full of items was hiding a spot that could use a fresh coat of paint. This can add value when home buyers visit your home as they will have the impression that the property they are looking to buy is well-maintained.
Remove Personal Items
The wall of sports trophies, the hallway of photographs, the movie posters on the walls in your kids’ bedrooms… they need to go. Pack up a box of these collectibles and put them safely away in storage. It’ll do wonders for visits – show off your house, not the stuff in it!
This also includes items you keep in your backyard. Tools, toys, gardening supplies – put them all into storage so your home buyer can see your yard without any interferences.
