Every owner wants to acquire as much money as possible from the sale of their house. Therefore preparing your house and staging it for sale is an effortful process that requires proper planning if you want to attract big buyers. Let’s explore some of the major tips on how to setup your house well enough for a buyer to consider purchasing it.
On a macro level you will be wanting to see how a buyer will perceive your house in the first meeting. So go outside the front door and watch and observe patiently. Ask yourself if the house seems pleasant, welcoming, and neat from the outside. Stand in the doorway of every room and feel the room’s emotional pull and comfort. See how many different ways furniture can be arranged without eating up too much space.
If the buyer doesn’t like the exterior of your house by commenting at the first glance then you won’t be able to take them inside ever. So it all comes down to the curb appeal you have to create. Keep the exterior as attractive and tidy as possible by keeping the sidewalks cleared, mowing the lawn evenly, painting the windows’ faded trim, trimming the bushes, and planting yellow flowers as it create a buying emotion. Also, most importantly, see the house number plate is clear enough for visitors to read.
Make a list of faults and repairs required that falls under your responsibility before putting the house for sale. You have to replace cracked tiles, fill holes in walls, fix leaky faucets, fix doors and drawers that are noisy or don’t open and close properly, replace old and dim light bulbs, and see if the walls have lost their true color and need to be repainted.
Any house is easier to inspect in its true self with less furniture and other belongings inside. Remove such items which blocks walkways and put them in a storage unit. Just leave enough in a room to make it look bigger, lively and to showcase the room’s purpose.
If you want to take your favorite items like window coverings, built-in appliances, or other most prized possessions with you, then this is the time you remove them. If an ancient chandelier hung in your bedroom or dining hall belonged to your grandfather, take it down. If the buyer never comes across one, he will never buy it. However, if the buyer gets interested in purchasing such an item of yours, then refusing can be a potential blow to the deal.
