Selling your home this spring? Read this first

The spring season is a big time for the real estate world. It’s a typical time for homeowners to put up their homes for sale. Television shows makes this process look so easy, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be the same for you.

When selling your home, there are certain things homeowners must do in order to entice future home buyers. After all, they’re not just buying your home. They’re purchasing a home for themselves and will need to picture their family in the same quarters you’ve inhabited for years.

Here’s what you need to do before selling your home:

Depersonalize

Remember, your personal touches are suitable to you and your family. In order to allow future home buyers to see themselves in your home, you’ll want to remove personal items and make common areas a neutral space.

Declutter

Open houses are a first impression. That’s why you’ll want to clean up and make sure your home is organized. Put away any knick knacks that might be distracting and put unnecessary items in storage for the time being. Replace the clutter with one or two statement pieces that will draw the eye in.

Swap out large pieces of furniture

Big pieces of furniture can overwhelm a space and make it feel small. Make home buyers look like they’re walking into large spaces by scaling back on the big pieces of furniture and adding smaller pieces. This is where a home stagers’ expertise comes in. They’ll have access to the right pieces of furniture to make your space visually appealing, while allowing the space to make a great impression.

Add lighting for visual effect

Adding a large accent piece can spruce up any neutral space. So can a cool light fixture. It’ll draw the eye to areas you want people to see, ultimately selling them on your home. Not only that, but lighting produces a warm and inviting space. Lighting is what people want to see.

Add aroma

To a future home buyer, your home is simply a house. Make it feel like a home they can live in by invoking their senses. Light a few candles to freshen the environment. It’ll also eliminate odours – two for one!

When selling your home, home staging is an important necessity. It lets home buyers see themselves in your space. That’s why it’s important to keep your space organized, decluttered and well-lit.
