Take stock and touch-up
It’s easy to overlook small repairs and other maintenance because, after all, it’s your home and it’s beautiful to you. A potential buyer will look carefully at the details and make assumptions so it’s in your best interest to take care of as many of the little things as possible. I’ll help you identify any equipment or fittings that may be simple and cost effective to replace. I may recommend replacing a few outdated fixtures with the latest ones found in new homes. Washing walls, windows, and a carpet steam cleaning are a wonderful first steps. You may want to employ a professional cleaning service, especially for areas you cannot reach. Here are a few more home staging tips by HGTV.
Professional staging tips
The kitchen is usually the first stop for the new homeowner. If it’s in showroom condition, it will make a good impression. Decluttering the countertops and removing photos and other memorabilia from the fridge will make the space seem larger and more efficient. Moving unnecessary pieces of furniture into storage will make rooms seem bigger than they really are; a bright airy room is more attractive compared to one that has furniture on every wall. Put away your valuables and personal effects so that the new owners can imagine their belongings in the home. And finally, make each room a little more homey with a plant or some fresh flowers.
Tip: There is a reason that developers have their own paint colour called “builder’s white”. It’s because a warm, neutral, and consistent paint colour throughout the home allows the new occupants the freedom of imagination to decorate the space in their own style. Benjamin Moore’s Cloud White is especially pleasant on both walls and ceilings and the play of light will make it look like two shades of neutral – so easy!
