The benefits of home staging
Have you always been waiting for this big moment? Make your apartment look the best to sell it!
Home staging is the action of bringing the most beautiful aspect of your property to light. Whether it is decoration or renovation, all means are good to improve the value of your property.
Thanks to the different techniques that improve your interior, your property could be sold in a short delay and at the best price. By making your property more attractive, more potential buyers will be interested and thus it is more likely a potential buyer will fall in love with your property!
Do not scare away, home staging does not mean the demolition of walls or installing new windows. On the contrary, we bring out the value of the already existing for less than 5% (maximum) of the overall price.
Mistakes to avoid:
- Some space is unused? Use this space to bring in beautiful plants and optimize the space of the property
- Is your room dark? Opt-in for transparent curtains to let in the light. Prioritize white light as yellow lights tarnish the interior, while white light helps brighten the room.
- Are your rooms crowded? Sort out and put away things that you do not need in the cave. You could also donate your furniture or sell items on specialized second-hand websites.
- You leave your property unfurnished as you believe that the next owners will want to choose their own decorations. This is wrong, many buyers only want to put their bags down, few are the ones that are not afraid of the potential renovations. For many, this criterion is what scares away buyers.
Our advice as beginners home stagers
- The client who visits your apartment must be able to feel at home to project themselves. So, remove your most visible personal belongings: frames, family photos, posters, magnets, collections on the shelves, etc.
- Repainting the walls with white paint can give a real boost to your property and sometimes even make it gain in value. A colored wall in an apartment or patterned wallpaper can be a real hindrance. As with a white, neutral paint, potential buyers will be able to project themselves more with their furniture or their decorating idea.
- Move your furniture in a way that makes your apartment look bigger, and make sure that the place is nice and clean.
