If you’re looking to sell your home or investment property, you’ll need to make sure your property looks better than the competition. Here’s our guide to getting the best price for your property:
1. Declutter your home
Remove old, tacky or old-fashioned furniture, clear the kitchen benches and pack away anything that makes the property looked cluttered. It’s also important to hide away family portraits and mementos, as a buyer wants to imagine themselves in your house not your family!
2. Freshen Up
One of the best ways to make things look and feel clean is by applying a fresh coat of paint, but try to stick to neutral colours that won’t turn off any buyers. Make sure you also complete any repairs that need to be done. Invest some time to get the lawns mowed, trim back trees, clear paths and water the garden regularly to keep everything lush. You can also look to plant coloured flowers in the garden beds to make the garden a stand out.
3. Get in the experts
A stylist can take your home to the next level. They will rearrange existing furniture to maximise space and improve the flow of the room. Essentially, they focus on the main areas that really sells properties such as the kitchen, family rooms, bathrooms and bedrooms. Another option which can make a huge difference to a property is to stage your home with new furniture. A staged home will ensure your pictures are perfect, and those perfect pictures will draw in larger crowds of potential buyers.
