Most people that put their homes on the market are hoping for a quick sale. In addition to hiring a good real estate agent and setting the right price on your home, you should also work on turning up your home’s visual appeal. A Calgary house that looks great inside and out will attract buyers and help you sell your home faster.
The first thing people will notice is the home’s exterior. If necessary, invest in boosting your home’s curb appeal. The lawn should be perfectly manicured at all times and it is a good idea to strategically plant flowers or shrubbery to give the house a picturesque quality. Putting up a privacy fence is an excellent way to ease potential buyer’s worries about nosy neighbors.
Homebuyers must be able to visualize living in the house. They won’t be able to do that easily if it is still filled with your personal belongings. Remove personal items like family photos and any artwork that is not being sold with the house. Paint the walls in a neutral color like white or cream. Spend time arranging the furniture in ways that emphasize your home’s best features.
Your house should feel welcoming and adding a few decorative touches can go a long way towards making buyers feel right at home. If you have a fireplace, put a vase with real or silk flowers on the mantelpiece. Surround the base with unlit candles in a variety of sizes. Fill bare walls with black and white photographs of neutral subjects like animals or buildings.
The Internet is an excellent resource for more ideas on how to decorate your house for a quick sale. A little creativity and hard work can have buyers falling over themselves to place an offer on your property.
