When selling your home or business, it is essential that it looks its very best.
The moment potential buyers walk through the door, they should be awed by the cleanliness and organization as well as imagining themselves in the space. Staging your home or business doesn’t have to be costly and simply requires some time and dedication on your part.
Remove Personal Possessions
First, you should remove personal possessions from your home or business to depersonalize it. Your child’s drawings on the fridge or cork board may be endearing to you, but potential buyers will need to be able to visualize their own items in the space.
Take Advantage Of Natural Light
Natural lighting in your home or business makes the interior look brighter and much larger. This can be used to your advantage as would-be buyers prefer natural light; it can help reduce your electric bill and make offices more comfortable and safe for employees. It can also help boost performance!
Clean, Clean, Clean!
If there was any time to deep clean your home or business it is now!
Get the carpets professionally cleaned, dust, declutter, and remove mildew from the bathrooms. Buyers don’t want to walk onto a property and come face to face with a dirty interior, as it implies neglect. Be sure to remember to clean neglected areas such as behind the couch and the window treatments.
Boost The Property’s Curb Appeal
The outside of your home or business is a potential buyer’s first impression of the property, so be sure it impresses.
Good curb appeal can boost the value of your property, even with simple projects such as power washing the building’s face. Cleaning up the yard, fixing the roof, cleaning the gutters, and fixing sidewalks will all go a long way in boosting the curb appeal of your home or business.
Rearrange The Furniture
If you are able, rearrange the furniture in your home or business to give as much walkable space as possible to potential buyers. Not only will it make the space look more open but it will also help buyers visualize their own furniture in each room.
