We have offered some tips on increasing your curb appeal and staging your home in the past, but there’s always more you can do to increase the appeal of your home in a competitive real estate market. Today, Colorado Professionals Title in Highlands Ranch would like to offer some further home staging tips to really make your property shine.
Appeal to both sexes
It’s important that your home appeal to both sexes if you’re to appeal to as many potential buyers as possible. This is especially true in the master bedroom, so make sure to choose a neutral color scheme and pick bedsheets and accessories that complement this color scheme.
Update your kitchen cabinets
It may well be out of your budget to replace your kitchen cabinets but luckily you probably don’t need to. Instead, sand them down and apply stain to give them a fresh, modern look.
Freshen up your flooring
Hardwood floors are a great feature and will undoubtedly appeal to many buyers. If your flooring is looking worse for wear, however, it could put them off. Fortunately, it’s simple to breathe new life into wood flooring. Simply hire a sander, sand your floor down, and apply stain and varnish. They’ll look as good as new in no time.
Keep it light
There’s no bigger turn off to potential buyers than a dark or dingy home. Make sure you throw open all your curtains and shades during any viewing or open house, and check around your home to see if there are any areas that don’t get much sunlight. If that’s the case, make sure they’re illuminated with a floor or table lamp; you can never have too much light!
Buyers certainly won’t appreciate pet odors or lingering smells from the kitchen during their viewings, so be vigilant when it comes to getting rid of these. Clean thoroughly to remove the source of any bad smells, and use air fresheners that neutralize odors rather than simply masking them. Ask a friend if your home smells fresh, as you may have simply gotten used to any long-term odors hanging around.
If you’re planning on buying a new home after completing your sale, it’s important that you protect this new investment.
