As a real estate agent, I am looking at houses on a daily basis and the ones that stick in my mind are the ones that have that homely “feel” to them. At least once a week I go home to report to my husband about this “gorgeous house I saw today, I should take you to have a look” – if he wasn’t so sensible we’d be moving A LOT!
So if you are selling your home, how do you create that “feel” that will make your house stand out from the competition, ensuring buyers fall in love with your house and visualise themselves as the proud new owners of it? Home Staging has become extremely popular over the last year with businesses dedicated to presenting your house for sale sprouting up all over the country. I refer a lot of my clients to Impress2Sell where Nikki and John offer services ranging from a full home stage using their furniture to styling of your home using your existing furniture (often this can mean de-cluttering, moving furniture and artwork to maximise space) . As they say, “when your house is on the market, you must think of it as a product on a shelf – in order for it to sell it must stand out.” Given the volume of houses currently on the market, my advise is to ensure your house is presented to its very best potential.
