STAGING/DECORATOR TIPS FOR A SMART SALE!!

STAGING/DECORATOR TIPS FOR A SMART SALE!!

 

HOW TO ADD SOME DEOCRATOR FLAIR TO YOUR HOME

One of the easiet ways is to change the cushions on your chairs or couches in your living room.  Find a cushion that combines your basic colour palette, with one or two new colours - step out of the box. Lime green, turquoise, orange or red, are colours that can add punch to many rooms, if paired with your basic colour, whether it's tan, black, white, cream, even green or blue.  And they offer some instant pizzazz to your room.  Then look for other accessories

orhcid int

that mirror that colour, such as vases, candles, rugs, flowers etc.  Add at least 3-4 other items to highlight your 'new' colour and voila - instant decorating! Even adding textured pillows or throws can also give new sparkle to a tired decor.

Arrange your new accessories in interesting and creative ways - raid your china cabinet or cupboards to find intersting pieces that you can use in new ways. Perhaps that silver vase or wine decanter would hold an attractive fern frond. Perhaps bring in some sea shells or stacked books to add to your coffee table. It also means putting away many of your previously enjoyed items, recycle or perhaps use in other rooms.  You might also consider having seasonal decorating accessories, that you change once or twice a year.  It is an inexpensive way to change up your home without breaking the bank.

I use many items already in a home owner's living room when I stage a home For Sale but then add several new items too.  Often simply rearranging items can give a tired room a new life, as well as decluttering unnecessary or outdated accessories, like that dried flower arrangement. Less is more!!

Before you put your home on the market, take the time to go through your home with an objective eye, to turn your HOME SWEET HOME into HOME DREAM HOME.  Here are some     fireplaceTOP SELLING TIPS

1. DECLUTTER DECLUTTER DECLUTTER - You're moving anyway, so get a jump start.  Pack away those extra toys, books, clothes, tools, shoes or boots, exercise equipment

2. CHECK THE PAINT JOB - touch up any chipped paint in hallways or rooms and repaint those rooms or ceilings that are showing any wear and tear.  DE-WALLPAPER  - you may not want to but a new buyer doesn't want to either.

3. CHECK OUT YOUR KITCHEN & BATHROOMS - Since these two rooms are the two most important selling rooms in your home. go ahead and 'glam them up'. New linens i.e. towels, shower curtain, possibly curtains or blinds + accessories too, that co-ordinate with your rooms - all things that you can take with you when you leave.

4. LIGHTING 'UNLIMITED' -  make sure all your lamps, lights, sconces, fans are sparkling clean and have working light bulbs.  Up the wattage in darker rooms, like rec room or basement.  Check for cobwebs too.

5. THE FLOOR'S THE THING - dated or dirty broadloom is a sure buyer turnoff - spend the money to get the carpets clean, replace broken ceramic floor tiles, or replace broadloom that's had it's day.  If you have hardwood underneath old carpet, take it up and reshine - everyone loves hardwood.

HOW REAL ESTATE MARKET CONDITIONS AFFECT YOUR OFFER PRICE
A hot market is a "seller’s market". During a seller’s market, properties can sell within a few days of being listed and there are often multiple offers. Sometimes homes even sell above the asking price. Though most buyers want to get a "deal" on a home, reducing your offer by even a few thousand dollars could mean that someone else will get the home you desire.

STAGING… FOR A FASTER SALE AND HIGHER PRICE
There are many television shows today that focus on home staging. If you have not watched any, do yourself a favor and tune in. They all say the same thing: do not even consider putting your house on the market until you have taken a close look at its condition. Experienced sales people know that you only have one shot at impressing potential buyers, so take some time to prepare your home for showings. You will be rewarded with a faster sale and a higher offer.

DOWNSIZING YOUR RESIDENCE
A great many moves in our lives are to larger residences to accommodate growing families. Or, perhaps our financial development allows us to move up to a larger home with more features and amenities. There is no stress involved in trying to reduce our life’s stuff to fit into a smaller place. If anything, we just need to shop for some more furniture for the new larger place.

LOCATION, LOCATION.... MARKETING!
You may have lived in your home for many years. The location factors that you considered when making your purchase decision may not apply to today’s buyers. The task is to identify the current positive aspects of your home’s location and market them aggressively. When it comes to positive locations, people’s different attitudes and preferences will determine if a location is a “good” one.
