If your home is well-presented, stylish and tidy, it will usually sell faster than a home that needs some work.
Here are The Guild’s top tips to make sure your home is perfectly staged to sell:
1. Less is more
Some comfy cushions on the sofa will make the living room look welcoming, but don’t over do it with too many throws and layers.
2. Remember the flowers
Don’t go wild for scents, like freshly baked bread or biscuits, but add some well-placed flowers for some colour and a subtle scent.
3. Sell the lifestyle
Your buyer needs to be able to imagine living there, so it’s a good idea to put some personal items in storage.
Decluttering is key; tidying away knick-knacks now will make it easier when you have to move.
4. Light, bright and clean
A bright, clean home will always be more welcoming, so make sure all curtains are wide open and turn on the lights as dusk approaches.
5. Bring in the experts
If you’re stuck, bring in the experts. Professional homestagers can get a small property ready to sell for £500. They can make your home much more welcoming, and buy new furniture and accessories if desired.
