5 simple tips for styling your home for sale

5 simple tips for styling your home for sale

14 Jun 2017 prosmarketing 0 Comment

Homeowners can add thousands of dollars to their sale price by taking the time to style their home before it hits the market.

Styling can make a dramatic difference to the way a property presents itself to buyers, and when done right it can have buyers lining up at the front door.

While a professional stylist can provide a home with any style it might be lacking, those on a budget can still improve the look of their home by following the below tips:

  1. De-clutter – Sometimes less is more. De-cluttering makes a major difference so start clearing those countertops and finding a new home for all of those odds and ends around the house. It might be a good idea to put away those personal photos too.
  2. Focus on kitchen and living areas – Buyers tend to pay a lot of attention to kitchen and living areas, as this is where most people spend the majority of their time. Make these areas shine by cleaning thoroughly and by setting the scene in each room. For example you could add a cookbook or basket of fruit in the kitchen.
  3. Consider furniture placements – Furniture can make or break a room. Consider furniture proportions and make sure that items aren’t too big or small for the rooms they’re in. Have easy traffic flow throughout your living and dining areas by removing excess furniture and any obtrusive edges.
  4. Make it light and bright – Make rooms feel bigger by adding a lick of paint in a light and neutral colour. Before open homes make sure there is enough natural light in a room by opening curtains and turning on all lights.
  5. Tidy up outside – Don’t forget the outside! Neaten up the lawn and gardens and take the time to style outside by adding an appealing outdoor setting and some new pot plants.
