Quick Makeovers That Will Help In Selling Homes

Quick Makeovers That Will Help In Selling Homes

Getting dressed for success is an adage that should apply to your home as well! Especially when you want to sell your house for a great price and in the shortest amount of time possible. Here are a few things that you can keep in mind for “sale success”:

  • Price it right.
  • Advertise effectively – use online and offline channels.
  • Invest in creating videos of your home so you can share it on social channels and
  • Do some quick makeovers as well.

Start outside

Run a critical and thorough eye on every portion of the exterior of your house. This is the starting point for all visitors and potential buyers. So your home should have:

  • Clean and freshly painted front door.
  • Clean and painted window frames.
  • Well-trimmed lawns and gardens and so on.

Include every other aspect and facet in this list of ‘to be cleaned’ things.

De-clutter

You have to remove every bit of clutter from your home. In fact, experts say that it is good to keep the house completely bare so that buyers can visualize themselves in the space. However, you can do a few things that will help:

  • Set out a floral arrangement on a table.
  • Lay out a plate of fresh cookies.
  • Keep the house smelling really fresh and clean as well.

You should not have too much of your personal stuff lying around.

Electrical fixtures

Here again, pay attention to all details. Every light, fan, air conditioning unit and wall socket should work. Have different kinds of lights switched on in different rooms so the buyers know that all fixtures are in working condition. No dirty or greasy bulbs anywhere! If you are selling home with appliances then every appliance should work. It is not enough to polish them and make them look good, they should be fully and flawlessly operational.

Highlights

Your home will have some unique points that differentiate it from the competition. It could be a lovely view from a window, or it could be an Italian stone counter top in the kitchen or it could even be a fireplace in the den – draw attention to these features. Here is an interesting tip for you – red is a color that draws attention and green takes it away. So put a bowl of red flowers on a counter that is sparkling and a green painting above a window that could be better looking!

Plants

Potted plants are the quickest possible makeovers to any space. Find them in different sizes, colors, planters etc and pepper them all over the house. This does not need any gardening knowledge from you. All you have to do is visit your local nursery and get the gardener to recommend indoor and outdoor plants that can spruce up the space in an instant. Create a green corner by clustering together complementary plants and you have a lovely oasis of Mother Nature to enjoy.

Cleaning your house is the best possible makeover, so, start there and then add little touches of decorations and you are done.
