Once you have attracted potential buyers to your house via the online listing, it is now important to keep their interest developed. The below-mentioned tips for upgrading and styling your home can set your stage for success.

  • Curb appeal:

 Making an impression on your potential buyers right as they step into your house is a crucial part of their house-hunting experience. Power washed sidewalks, easy to read house numbers and a well maintained front lawn will start their journey inside your home with a positive note. Taking into account the exterior look of your house with clean windows and a well-maintained porch will aid in making the first impression on your buyers.

  • Cleanliness is key: 

Ensuring each and every nook and cranny of your house is as clean as possible is an important step in the process. Having polished surfaces; floors, countertops and window sills; brings a sense of freshness to the space. If you have rugs and carpets in your home, make sure they are washed and looking fresh.  Fresh scents are also a deciding factor for many buyers as it impacts their mood right when they walk in your house until they leave. 

  •  Staging where it counts: 

When looking for house buyers are mainly interested in the main rooms of the house i.e. the living room, master bedroom and kitchen. Focusing the bulk of your staging budget helps ensure that this is a smooth and easy process for you. 

  • Depersonalize and de-clutter the space: 

It is crucial to identify and cater to the customer’s personal preferences when trying to sell your house. This can be achieved by depersonalizing the space  and removing any sentimental items that appeal to your family, for instance, family photographs, trophies. 

  • Neutral is the way to go:

When choosing bed sheets and cushion covers, try to go for gender-neutral colors as it pleases to all buyers. Remember, a pattern or color you love and adore might not be pleasing to another person. 

  • Some DIYs to give a lived-in look: 

After all the cleaning has been taken care of and the major furniture has been set up, few things that give your home a lived-in look can make the potential buyers feel cosy and welcomed. Having big mirrors in small rooms make them seem bigger and brighter. Clean and fresh smelling white towels in the washrooms give them a hotel vibe and upgrade the ambiance. Having a vase of fresh flowers on the living room centre table, a bowl of fresh-looking fruit on the kitchen island and a well-set dining table all provide a sense of home to the potential buyers. 

Following these simple tips can make selling your home a less stressful process and can land you in a suitable deal with a potential buyer in a short amount of time.
