You know you are looking at houses for sale if the presentation is impeccable, so much to the point that you can easily imagine yourself living in that particular space. That aspect about home selling is called home staging.
Home staging is one of many steps a homeowner takes in the process of selling a residential property. It is done to make the house look appealing to potential buyers. For instance, you are preparing a house for sale in Melbourne. With the tight competition in the real estate market in Melbourne or in any place in Victoria for that matter, you need to go the extra mile in preparing a property for home showing. You need to make it look good to appeal to your prospects’ senses.
What are some tips that can be valuable to you when you are staging your house for sale in Melbourne?
Try to get professional help
In the past years, it was always left to the homeowner’s discretion how to stage their home for home showing. A majority of these homeowners were clueless about the details of their home they need to work on. Usually, homeowners would ask their estate agent how to stage their home, but the truth is, many estate agents are just as clueless as they are about staging. Hence, get professional help. Professional home stagers would know what kind of visualisation is most effective and most likely to be bought by prospect buyers.
Start from the outside
As you create the stage for your home’s success, what you need to invest in next is how your house looks like from the outside. Boost your curb appeal by mowing your lawn, trimming the flowers, taking the weeds out of your flower bed and adding sod to your soil if necessary. Power wash your gate, your windows, your garage floor, sidewalks and walkways too. Pay attention to the tiny details too. If your mailbox is already rusted, repaint or replace it with a new one. Make sure that your house number is hung properly and easy to read as well.
Aim for a style that looks clean and organised indoors
It is easier to appreciate a home that looks clean and organised than if it were to have too many decorations and furniture. When not used in moderation, it may seem more like clutter than art. Houses for sale that are set up like this makes it seem like the staging was not well-thought out.
How can you aim for a clean and organised style? Go for midtone neutrals like beige, white and mocha. Interiors that are coloured this way will be easier for your potential buyer to visualise what it could feel like if he or she proceeds to buy this property you are selling. Limit the number of furniture in the living room, in the kitchen, in the bathroom and in the bedrooms. Declutter and depersonalise are the keys to a clean and organised style.
