When you put your house on the market for sale, you depend on a fast transaction to make sure that you get the maximum profit and a faster liquidation of your asset. However, without putting in honest prep work in staging the house, you would actually be hampering the speed as well as the profit margin of your house for sale. To get the maximum out of the asset you need to plan your strategy in steps – prep the home, fix the flaws and stage a welcoming ambiance. If you are too confused on your first try, use the following instructions as a guide during the project.
Start with a thorough cleaning of the house. Use the spring-cleaning process this year to make your house friendlier towards client inspections. Running a vacuum is not enough, if you have not sorted through the clutter. In fact, you can take this time to box up some of your extraneous inventory and either put them away in storage, plan a yard sale or donate to goodwill.
Adding the flounce
You can just as well make do with your current décor, but adjust the rooms according to their best representation. If your room shows better in a particular light (morning or evening), arrange for the potential buyer visits during those times. Open up the drapes and freshen up the rooms before every buyer visits. This makes the ambiance more inviting and airy. You can also concentrate on the landscaping and remove any additional clutter from the yards – bushes, shrubs or tree branches blocking premium view from the rooms.
The final staging
Buyers want to see a house that they can imagine to be theirs in the future. So, remove all personal items from the region. You should put smaller furniture pieces in to storage. Lesser furniture gives the illusion of more space and allows the buyers to imagine the functionality of the rooms according to their lifestyle.
