If you are considering to put your property on the market this season, you definitely want it to look its absolute best to attract the potential buyers. As you may have guessed, reparation and presentation are the key to success to sell faster and get your asking price.
But don’t worry, staging your home for summer selling doesn't have to be complicated. We broke down some simple tips to get your home summer-ready.
1. Let There Be Light
With summer’s longer days and extended periods of sunshine, letting natural light streams into your home is one of the simplest and most effective ways to market it. Something as simple as washing your windows will not only brighten up your space, but will also give it the exterior of your home that extra sale-ready polish.
In fact, an outdated window treatment is definitely a huge turn off for buyers. Vertical blinds should be avoided at all cost. Pick a good quality set of curtains and make sure they look clean and fresh. For more tips and tricks, check out this article.
2. Keep It Fresh
Whether you’re selling a home with a yard or a teeny condo, incorporating live plants in and around your home is a great way to make it more appealing to buyers. If you’ve got a lawn to work with, keep it in the best possible shape.
Invest in fertilizer and make an effort to water it on dry days. No lawn? No problem. You’d be surprised at how a vase of fresh flowers from your local florist or grocer can transform a room.
Also, make sure you deal with moisture to avoid any household odors. Clean the surfaces and bring in the good! Open the window and find subtle ways to scent such as a fabric refresher spray or candles.
Remember, strong scents are not always the best as they might scare some buyers. Stick to natural scents like floral and citrus ones and stay away from the tropical and sugary ones.
3. Get Decked Out
When it comes to summer home staging, beauty is both inside and out. If your home has a balcony, patio or deck, take some time to set up some cute outdoor furniture, and subtle accents like colourful pillows to help buyers see themselves relaxing and enjoying their lives in this home.
Taking the time to spruce up your outdoor space will also make the square footage of your home appear greater. Clean your yard and upgrade it to attract the visitors.
4. Brighter Is Better
While dramatic colours on the walls can make a space appear more closed, adding small pops of colour around your home is a great way to make it look summery and chic. Try adding a few bright throw pillows onto beds or couches, or experimenting with brightly coloured hand towels in the bathroom.
5. Welcome Home
Investing in a welcome mat to place at the entrance of your home is a great way to make buyers feel excited and, you guessed it, welcomed into the home. It’s all in the details, people!
