1. DO YOUR RESEARCH
Whether you are looking at selling your property or simply giving it a bit of a facelift, first impressions count. You need to ensure that your home has great street appeal. Firstly, you need to assess what your current street appeal is. Stand across the road and have a good look at your home. Better still ask a neighbour or friend to give you unfiltered feedback too. What works? What needs improving? What looks scruffy and what catches your eye? Do your research by taking a drive around your neighbourhood and making notes on homes that are well presented and appealing. What is different about them. If you need extra inspiration, visit real estate sites to see how homes in your area are presented. If you are looking at selling, remember that the first image people look at is the exterior. This will motivate them to either click on your property or scroll past it.
1. MAKING THE RIGHT FURNITURE CHOICES
To give the illusion of more space, choose furniture pieces that have clean, simple lines. These will keep the space from feeling cluttered. Raise your key furniture pieces off the floor to keep your room airy and open and always ensure that these pieces have delicate legs to avoid them taking up precious space.
Take your time to plan your furniture layouts carefully. Arrange your key pieces around the outside of the room and always make sure that nothing is blocking the traffic flow. Allow some space between your wall and the back of your couches, to allow your room to feel more open.
Your aim is to show your home at its very best to potential buyers. This means getting rid of clutter and presenting a clean, spacious home that people can imagine happily living in. Always remember that you are selling the house, not the contents! Cut down on non-essential pieces of furniture and accessories to ensure that your eye moves easily from room to room. Professional home stagers will often put at least half of your furniture in storage to make your home look bigger.
