So you are ready to list your home for sale with Next Address ...
You're ready to have your photos done and you're getting excited by the possibility of multiple offers and
moving on to your next adventure. Before you get overly excited and start imagining yourself in a new home, it
is crucial you focus on selling your current home first.
You can make simple and budget savvy changes to stage your home for potential inspections, which will
improve the odds buyers will find your home appealing. Consider trying the following tips before your perfect
match knocks on your door:
Bathrooms need to be free of clutter. Hair products, shaving accessories and moisturisers need to be
neatly tucked away when potential buyers are viewing your home. Just like removing family photos from
the living room helps to depersonalise your space, getting rid of bathroom clutter helps buyers imagine
themselves in your home.
Show off the extra room in cupboards by removing everything except the essentials. Use matching
hangers and stacked decorative storage boxes to make your cupboards look neat and tidy. Buyers want
cupboards with plenty of room; ensure all cupboards in your home give an instant impression of
Bedrooms also need to appear roomy to buyers. Opt for a single dresser and two bedside tables. A
headboard for your bed helps to 'anchor' the room. Choose bed linens that appeal to both male and
female buyers. You want buyers to be able to visualise their furniture in the room without wondering
whether everything will fit.
Updating your kitchen cupboard handles is an excellent home staging tip. This small expenditure can
offer a substantial return on investment by giving buyers the impression of a modern kitchen. Remove
everything but the essentials from kitchen benches and make sure every surface is spotless.
Staging your home to encourage a quick sale doesn't have to cost you hundreds of dollars. You can improve
the look of your home and increase the odds buyers will find your place inviting and warm.
