5 Small Touches You Can Add to Your House for a Quicker Sale

Interior Design & Decor

(Guest Writer: Bethany Seton)

You’ve decided to sell your home and of course, you’re hoping for the best possible outcome. Not only do you want to get your investment back, but you need some additional cash as well.

When it comes to sprucing up your residence in order to leave a good impression on potential buyers, it all boils down to strategy.

Even if you feel everything is up to code (your floors are new, your roof is fixed, your bathroom is stylish and functional), there are still some elegant touches you can add to leave those interested in purchasing enticed and ready to sign. And here’s five ways how.

Declutter

Whatever you had in mind for the ‘staging’ process, getting rid of all the excess clutter is definitely the first step. Take some time to clear the space so that the visitors to your home can get a clear idea of how much room they actually have available for their own interior design ideas and preferences.

However, you shouldn’t put away too much – leave enough to reflect that personal touch of yours and give ideas to some more unimaginative buyers. People are impressed by lifestyle as much as the brick and mortar, so take advantage of that fact.

Replace all the bulky furniture with smaller pieces and move the rest in storage or to your new abode.

Plants as a Secret Weapon

Homes with plants are happier, healthier and more welcoming places, which is, of course, the impression you want to leave. These green details will help avoid a sterile, staged look. Furthermore, they are more than convenient if you need to cover up an unappealing wall or floor section, and they add a splash of colour as well.

Feel free to mention them to your prospective buyers, and emphasize how your home has been suitable for many impressive and pet-friendly plants – safe for your curious felines and a great addition to the overall interior design.

Upgrade Your Kitchen

The kitchen has the power to make or break the deal when selling a property. It’s a place of comfort and creativity where the whole family comes together several times a day. It is the most valuable room in the house since it is worth most per square foot.

Installing new cabinetry might be a bit pricey at this point, but refacing it will give you that much-needed appeal at a reasonable price. Declutter your kitchen surfaces, position a bowl of fruit and even some fresh flowers, and take out the bulky appliances. The prospective gain is well worth the effort.

Let There Be Light

The sense of space is crucial when selling a home. Utilizing wall mirrors will help create that irresistible sensation of rooms being airy and spacious. Smaller rooms and hallways are ideal candidates for this kind of décor.

And of course, speaking of glass, you need your windows clean, both inside and out, so you can let in as much natural light as possible. A well-lit space makes the whole property seem more attractive. If there are any dark corners, some attractive lamps that complement the overall design will make a world of difference.

Smells That Sell

Visual aspects are important, but we must not disregard the overall fragrance of your home. An unpleasant smell will set the tone the moment a buyer walks through the door, and not a favorable one. If you are aware of such an issue, don’t just cover the unwanted odor – find its source.

Take some time to air out all the rooms, especially the kitchen in order to get rid of all of those old cooking smells. Clean your drains and wash all of your bins. Old furniture and curtains tend to soak up a lot of cigarette smoke, so it would be best to thoroughly clean or get rid of them altogether. There are numerous ways to help you get all the foul smells out of the house, so don’t hesitate to do a bit of research.

Once you clean the air, choose some enticing fragrances to seal the deal. While you can never go wrong with the smell of freshly baked bread or cookies, there might not be time for such an endeavor every time you have a prospective buyer coming. Instead, prepare some fresh coffee, or light a scented candle or two. Pleasant ambient scents will certainly make your visitors feel more at home.

Conclusion

The point when staging a home for sale is to make it look both appealing and practical. The challenge lies in the fact that your residence should look homey and cozy, but clean and free of clutter at the same time.

Potential buyers should be able to envisage their own life there once they enter and get that warm fuzzy feeling inside that’ll make them sign on the dotted line.

By implementing some of these interior tips and tricks, you are bound to get at least one step closer to your final goal.
