When you want to create an ambient mood, there is no need to go overboard. A simple rule of thumb is to prepare your home as if friends were about to arrive – neat, clean and casual.
1. OPTIMISE YOUR STREET APPEAL
Ensure your front garden is tidy. Remove weeds and trim garden edges. Fresh mulch on your garden creates a healthy visage. Be sure your front fence is in pristine condition and that gates open easily. Ensure any paving and driveways are free of stains and trim any overhanging branches or limbs from trees.
2. MAKE AN ENTRANCE
A welcoming entrance to your home is a great starting point. A personal touch here or there should help to make that first impression a positive and accommodating experience. If your home appears well loved, your potential buyers will find it easier too.
3. REMOVE ALL CLUTTER
By removing appliances from benches and putting some items of furniture in storage, it helps make your home look lighter, larger and more spacious. If you have old and tired furniture, it may be prudent to consider hiring a few stylish pieces to compliment your home.
4. ENHANCE THE SPACE
Light and airy is always the preference for would be buyers. If weather conditions allow, why not open up some windows and doors to create a light and spacious feel. Light darker areas with lamps, but most importantly, let as much light into your home as possible.
5. GET IN THE MOOD
Most of us are seduced by sights, smells, and sounds that are calming and engaging. Freshly brewed coffee, freshly baked bread, a display of fresh flowers, fresh fruit in an attractive bowl on the kitchen bench, or light classical music playing softly in the background are all things to consider.
6. CLEAN UP YOUR ACT
Bedrooms and bathrooms can provide persuasive evidence of a home’s desirability and it is here that you need to be sure that presentation is spot on. A new set of quality towels neatly arranged in your bathroom, together with attractive soaps and bath oils can go a long way to ticking all the right boxes.
7. RIGHT PLACE, RIGHT TIME
Be sure to organise inspections at times when your home presents best. If you are close to a school, for instance, make sure your inspections are held at quiet times of the day. If your home is not appealing in the morning light, then select an afternoon inspection time. These all seem like small matters, and yes, some are quite obvious, but it pays to take that little extra care and time to present your home to its best advantage.
