One of the great challenges to selling a home can be showing all of its space, decor and natural light potential. We’ll show you some tips on how to give your house face lift and sell it faster. Sellers should be aware that areas such as these are easy to spruce-up with a little elbow grease and good old-fashioned innovation.
Begin by evaluating your closet/storage space; determine which areas can cut-down in clutter. Go through old clothes, shoes, etc., and get rid
of anything that will not be used and in turn create more space. Consider organising shelves and other areas to make better use of your storage space.
Once you’ve eliminated the unwanted items and furniture, begin the ‘renovation’ process. For non-storage spaces that could use a little
more decor, consider adding a small bookshelf complemented with a cosy reading chair.
Always be sure you’re filtering as much light into your property as possible. Open or replace curtains. For example, light from a window
overlooking the back garden offers a room more colour, a great view and the illusion of more space.
Always maximise the potential of existing decor; wash old curtains, re-stain old wood casings, anything that refreshes and emphasises all the
potential of the space and decor of the home.
Prospective buyers are often more drawn to homes with features that they don’t have, those with clutter-free closets, open sunny rooms, and cosy
To ensure you’ve realised all of the above characteristics the last step should be to bring in a friend and observe their reaction. Make sure
it’s an honest friend, who will offer suggestions as well as notice the improvements. Seeing your own home through someone else’s eyes is a great
way to make a home optimally attractive and more sellable to prospective buyers.
Be diligent in your efforts and be sure this facelift improves the aesthetic appeal of the home. All the hard work will be worth the reward
of a successful sale.
