But in the same breath our home are an investment, so if we do have to sell, we want to achieve the highest sale price we can. So I thought it would be a good idea to share with you some of the ways your interior can help you do that.
The flooring in your home can have a big impact on the sale. It is one of the biggest things in your house and therefore can make a room look brighter. Some buyers want to be able to move into a home without the need to have a big expense; flooring can be one of those things to a new buyer. However replacing your floors with things like Laminate doesn’t have to cost that much. But could make a big difference to your overall sale cost.
We all have the right to decorate our houses how we want; they can be an extension of our personality. So if you wanted red walls in your bedroom and a lovely purple theme in your living room then that’s great. But your potential buyer may not have a thing for those colors. A great tip would be to paint the walls in your home a neutral shade, or try pastel colors instead. Again this will appeal to a buyer on two levels. The first being that the house will be livable straight away and the likelihood is that their furniture will match. The second being that they won’t have the expense themselves. For you, this means you can charge a higher price because your house is very saleable.
When selling your home, it’s a good idea to minimise the amount of furniture you have. Just keep each room with a functional amount in there. This will allow a new buyer to envision where their furniture may go and how they will use the rooms. They could be distracted if there is too much in a room.
A tidy and clean space
Another great tip would be to declutter your home and keep it tidy. Again this takes away any distraction from the buyer and allows them to see your home's potential. An untidy and unclean house can be off putting, but putting your best foot forward means you can demand the big bucks.
Think about things from a buyer's perspective
Finally, think about things from a buyer's point of view. Walk round your home and try and look at it as if you were buying it. You’d be surprised on the things you pick up on. This will allow you to make changes ready for your viewings to commence.
I hope this helps you sell your home easier and for the most amount of money.
