Staging Your SWFL Home For a Quick Sale
You probably know that when you are selling your home, you want to make it look as attractive as possible to potential buyers. But what is it that makes people walk into a home and think, “Yes, I want to live here!” Some things are obvious, like making sure the house is tidied up before a showing, but there are other tricks that you might not think of. Here’s how to help your home show to its best advantage.
- Boost the Curb Appeal
Put your home’s best foot forward by making the exterior as attractive as possible. This doesn’t mean re-landscaping the whole property! Just pulling up weeds, reseeding the grass or laying down sod if necessary, and power-washing the front walk will make a big difference. You can also wash the windows at the front of the house and plant some brightly-colored annuals in the flower bed. To go the extra mile, make the front porch look more inviting with some seasonal decorations, a new welcome mat, and maybe a potted plant or two. While you’re at it, give the back yard some TLC as well, and make sure any patio furniture is arranged as attractively as possible.
- Make the House Sparkle
You know that things like kids’ toys and other clutter need to be put away, but that’s just the beginning. Start by clearing out everything that’s not essential, from toys to books to countertop appliances. You want your house to look as clean and uncluttered as possible, and that means clearing all of the surfaces! Once that’s done, it’s time for some good, old-fashioned elbow grease. Either pitch in yourself, or hire a housekeeping service to deep-clean the whole house from top to bottom.
- Make it Look Lived-In
Now that you’ve taken all the clutter out, it’s time to add some personal touches back in. After all, you want your house to look like a home, not a hotel room! Go for little things that both signal that people live there, and make the home more beautiful. A bowl of fresh fruit on the kitchen counter, a vase of brightly colored cut flowers in the living room, and some stylish decorations on the dining room table will all do the trick.
