Are you having a hard time selling your home? Don’t worry; you’re not alone. It is common for homeowners not to find the right buyer for their property straight away, especially when there are many similar properties on the market. Fortunately, there are a few strategies that you can use to find potential buyers for your home. One of them is investigating storage solutions and staging your property.
According to home staging and styling expert Debbie Curnow, having clutter and too much furniture is one of the most common reasons for a property to take longer than usual to sell because it can make a house look cramped and feel smaller. However, when you temporarily put some of your valuables in storage, you can make your home look more spacious.
If you want to sell your home faster, here are some house staging tips you should consider.
It goes without saying that when you put your house up for sale, you are deciding to move. As such, start packing your belongings and use this opportunity to declutter your home. Go through each room in your house and remove all the items you don’t use anymore. You can store them in a storage unit, donate them to charity, or sell them online or through a garage sale. Either way, the goal is to reduce the number of furnishings in your home by half to make your property more appealing to buyers.
2. Go Through Cupboards & Drawers
If your home is on the market, you need to be aware that some home buyers do look inside cupboards and drawers! Unpleasant items or closets overflowing with clothes and shoes can be a turn-off. The best solution: use a self-storage unit for storing your belongings instead of overcrowding your cupboards and drawers.
3. Make The Kitchen Presentable
The kitchen is the heart of the home, and potential homebuyers need to be able to picture themselves in it. Make sure that you go over your kitchen with a razor-sharp focus and ensure that the countertops are free from clutter. Don’t forget to remove magnets, drawings, bills, and anything else from the fridge door. Pack all the kitchen tools and appliances you don’t use anymore and place them in storage to give your kitchen a clean and an organised look.
4. Stage The Laundry Area
If you’re having an open house, be sure to give your laundry area some staging touches too. Start by putting away laundry baskets, ironing boards, and cleaning products. Then, stage the laundry area by placing decorative items or a small plant.
