Have you got the winter doldrums? Do you need to add new energy into the selling process of your home? Here are a few suggestions that might help to create renewed interest in your listing. Create a fresh new look. Get rid of the clutter by doing your spring cleaning early.
One way to start out fresh is to give your living room a boost by rearranging your furniture. Remove pieces that don’t seem to fit. Add a new piece, or bring in an older piece from another room.
Just as an artist would begin to work on a new canvas, you can create something of beauty and balance. Just a small seemingly insignificant change can capture a buyer’s interest. Perhaps a new wall treatment, or a vase of flowers from the local floral shop, could make all the difference in attracting buyers to investigate all that your home has to offer.
Many rooms feature a natural focal point such as a beautiful fireplace, a bank of windows exposing nice views of your surroundings. If the room does not have a focal point, perhaps you can find a way to create one. This could be accomplished with a number of creative ideas: art, window treatments, furniture arrangements, etc. Find ways to pull your furniture away from the walls. This will help to create a less static, more flowing arrangement.
The ideal room promotes harmony and balance. The use of light colors can create a mood of tranquility, and calm, while the use of dark colors may create a mood of security, closeness, even warmth. Overall, you’ll want to create an environment that invites your buyers to use their imaginations. They may have different tastes of furniture and art than you do, but what they see should encourage them to want to visualize their own furniture and belongings in this home that might become theirs.
Besides the web, there are many books, magazines, and other resource available to help. Professional designers are often worth their weight in gold. Many a sale has been made by repackaging the old product. Contact your friendly Realtor for other tips and suggestions in making your home more saleable. Until next week, keep smiling.
