If you’re getting ready to sell your home there are a few things that you need to do to get it ready for showings. Keeping your home clean is paramount, as it inspires buyers to see the space and not the mess. Keeping your home clear of clutter is another important thing. Some suggest moving out all extra furniture, so that buyers can see what the space is really like, and see it as more of an open space. There are other small things that you can do to your home to make it more attractive. Here’s a list of mini makeovers that will really grab their attention.
You make have collected lots of artwork over the years, and while it may mean a lot to you, it might detract from a potential buyers’ vision of the property. Try to keep your art to a minimum, keeping the walls clean and nearly bare with a few statement pieces here and there.
Whether it’s on a bed, chair or couch, grabbing some brightly colored or patterned pillows can make a space look completely updated and bright. Don’t go overboard on color, but try to find something that will give the room a little pop.
Mirrors can be a great way of making a smaller space feel much bigger. Find the perfect mirrors to hang in your space. Be strategic about where you hang them, at the end of a hallway, on a long wall. Hang them wherever the space feels a bit small, and it will make it feel more open.
Another great way to make a room feel bigger is adding the right rug. Black and white runs, typically in stripes, can make a room feel much larger. If you’re looking to add a little character to a room, try adding a fun colored patterned rug.
Indoor plants are a great way to add some freshness to the inside of your home. Plants in the kitchen, bathroom and living room add a great clean touch. Try some strategically placed plants on kitchen counters, or islands, near the sink in the bathroom, or on the coffee table in the living room.
You always want to make sure your entryway is inviting. It’s the first thing a potential homebuyer will see, and you want to make sure it sets the tone for the showing. You want your entry way, front door and walkway to be clean and well taken care of. It tells the buyer how well you take care of the house, and what condition they can expect that it will be in.
There are a lot of small things that can really make a buyer feel at home. By doing these small things your property could make quite an impression on buyers.
