This definitely applies to your home when it comes to attracting buyers.
Home staging is one of the key preparations you need to make before listing your property up for sale. Presenting your home the right way can easily affect your selling price.
As part of the WISEBERRY experience, we can provide you with advice on what will and what will not make a difference to your selling price. It’s always the smallest things that many tend to overlook that could cause a drop in their selling price. Little details make a big difference!
From inside out
We recommend attending to repairs and cleaning of your home. If you are purchasing a home but knowing that there might be additional repair costs, you wouldn’t appeal to it as you initially were. Put yourself in the shoes of a buyer and examine every room thoroughly. Imagine how your house will look to a buyer and how you can improve the buyer’s experience.
Create a welcoming experience
Keep in mind that most people buy something based on emotions. Utilise that and create a welcoming experience for your potential buyers. Both the inside and outside of your property are equally important; one cannot perform without the other when it comes to making that first impression. Give the exterior of your property a makeover so it could attract buyers as they drive past your property.
Flow and Space
Take into consideration that decluttering your home helps the process in creating the impression of space for your potential buyers as they navigate around your home during inspection. You’ll be surprised by how easily you can elevate the flow of your space by removing the unnecessary furniture, junk and items out of sight. You can store them in the storage or rent a storage out
Having good quality photos puts you on the top of the list. A listing with good quality photos creates better first impressions, especially when you are listing them on real estate portals. Your Wiseberry agent can help arrange professional photos and videos of your property.
