Prepare Your Home For A Quick Property Sale
Selling a home in today’s economic climate can be quite a challenging task; however, it is very possible as the amount of home buyers and tenants is growing on a regular basis. While the sale can be managed by estate agents and realty companies, it is up to you to make the property more presentable (and appealing) to the potential buyer. This article will act as a brief guide on how to prepare a house for potential buyers, also known as staging.
1. Remove Any Clutter
Clutter can be a real problem as it often contributes to reduce the amount of space in a room, which may already be spacious. However, clutter creates a feeling of claustrophobia. To eliminate this feeling and enhance the area space of the rooms, it is recommended that you remove the clutter. This can be done by removing all excess items from the area and placing it in storage. It is important that the potential buyer is able to envision what the residence would look like if they were living there. This is far more easily done when the rooms are neat and tidy. Of course, it is important that you do not depersonalize the property too much as people are more likely to buy a property with ‘personality’ instead of a generic style.
2. Fixing And Cleaning
Just as removing clutter is important for a quick property sale, so is the replacement and repairing of poorly maintained items or decorative accessories. It is imperative that you repair any holes in walls, cracked tiles, threadbare carpets, broken doorknobs, and broken windows. A poorly maintained property will generally give the impression of being a poor quality home. Furthermore, repairing and cleaning the residence will remind potential buyers that they will not be required to fix or clean any areas when moving in. The less the buyer feels they have to do to move in, the better.
3. Painting The Property
Not many people will consider this point, but repainting a property can be a highly beneficial factor when attempting to sell a property quickly. A new coat of paint will ‘lift’ the house and create a good first impression to viewing buyers. The color of the paint used is also very important. Darker colors make the property and/or rooms seem smaller than they actually are. A bright or neutral color will increase the good impression and will make it easier for buyers to imagine how they can adapt the room.
