Getting your home ready to sell is a huge undertaking, and it can be hard to keep it ready for viewing all the time. If you do it right, your house will be on the market a relatively short amount of time and you will be able to focus on getting packed so that you can move on to your next home instead of keeping it ready for the next showing.
Home Decor Ideas to Get Your House Ready to Sell
Make Sure Your Entrance Looks Welcoming
Your front door and porch area will be the first thing that a prospective buyer will see when approaching your home. Start by making sure that it is as inviting as possible by giving the door and the front windows a good cleaning. Repaint it and replace the handle, if necessary. Place a wreath on it and add a planter if you have room. Check your entryway from the front door to ensure that it looks clean and clutter-free.
Freshen up Your Home with Paint
You can give your home a clean, fresh look by painting the interior walls. If it’s been a few years since you’ve painted, the paint colour tends to become dull over time. You don’t necessarily have to change the colours you have in place if they are neutral; just go over the walls in a similar tone. However, if you have distinctly bright or dark colours in your home, you may want to repaint in a shade that will appeal to a larger number of buyers.
Remove Personal Items as Accessories
Keep in mind that show homes have accessories, but that nothing is especially personal? When selling your home, you are going to have to focus on this type of look. Go through your rooms and be ruthless about removing family pictures, diplomas, or anything that is personal. You want potential buyers to be able to see a more generic home that could appeal to anyone, rather than “your” house.
Create a Table Setting in Your Dining Area
To make your dining area look inviting, get out your good china and cutlery and make an attractive table setting. It will make anyone who views your home picture being able to sit down with family and friends for special occasions.
