Short sharp ‘must do’s’ when preparing for your real estate sale. If you wish to increase your property value, you need to leave a good impression on your potential customers. You can sell your property’s worth for a better price with the help of property styling. Let’s see tricks for styling your home for sale:
CLEAN: Paths, windows, soft furnishings, carpets, light fittings.
STORE: Excess furniture, ornaments, kitchen accessories, linen, clothes. Less is More!
ORGANISE: All cupboards and wardrobes.
PAINT: Refresh tired flaky areas. Lighten up paintwork and be quite neutral with feature walls.
FURNITURE: Position furnishings to maximise the room size. Don’t block walkways. Remove the feeling of overcrowded and cluttering.
LIGHT: Window coverings open fully. Use high wattage globes in all light fittings.
MAINTENANCE: Make sure ‘everything is in working order’. Be aware of what you’ve put up with. Complete all essential repairs, squeaky doors, dripping taps, broken tiles.
PEST CONTROL: Delete any signs of household pests.
AMBIENCE: Create the mood with music, fresh air, positive smells, perfect temperature.
