Boost Your Home’s Sales Appeal in Five Steps

News at Johnsons Property Consultants | 02/04/2024

Are you planning to sell your home this year?

Or just curious about what your property may be worth in the current market?

Good news – this article will give you five easy-to-follow tips highlighting how effectively staging your home can boost its appeal to potential buyers.

Styling your home can also potentially speed up the sale and even increase the value of offers you receive. Let’s dive into the tips.

1)      Declutter and depersonalise

Start by decluttering each room to make your home appear more spacious and inviting. Remove personal items such as family photos, memorabilia and anything else that might distract buyers from imagining themselves living there. A minimalist approach helps highlight the property’s features rather than its contents.

2)      A fresh coat of paint

Refresh your walls with a lick of paint in neutral colours. Light, airy shades like off-white, beige or light grey can make spaces appear larger and brighter, appealing to a broader range of buyers. This simple update can add value to your home without breaking the bank.

3)      Maximise natural light

Make sure your home is well-lit to make it feel warm and welcoming. Keep windows clean and curtains drawn back to let natural light in. If any area of your home feels a little dark, consider adding mirrors to reflect light and make the space feel larger.

4)      Tidy up outdoor spaces

First impressions count. Tidy up your garden, mow the lawn and ensure bins are out of sight. A welcoming entrance and a neat and tidy garden can make a strong initial impression on potential buyers, making them more eager to see what’s inside.

5)      Address little niggles

Take care of any small repairs around the house – fix leaky taps, squeaky doors or chipped paint. These details might seem minor, but they can suggest a well-maintained home to interested buyers.
