Getting your home ready to sell quickly takes a little thought and planning. You want to get the best price for your property but you also want it to move fast. However, no one likes it when they have to spend a lot of money when it comes to getting their house looking good enough so it tempts potential buyers to snap it up. Below are 7 interior design tips to sell your house quickly which won’t cost you a fortune.
A newly painted front door works wonders
1 A Coat of Paint Works Wonders
A fresh coat of paint on the front door and elsewhere round the home works wonders, it gives people the impression of a well cared for property. All scuffs and worn patches that over time have appeared on the old paint work may just put off potential buyers, remember first impressions really do count when people view properties. Choose a neutral colour for the interior but a nice warm welcoming one for the front door so that you make a good first impression.
2 Improve the Lighting Around Your Home
Lighting is really important when it comes to giving each room in your home a nice warm appeal. If the fittings in your home are old and dated, then think about replacing them with trendy new ones. You might want to look at the light switches too and replace these with some smart eye catching new ones.
3 Give the Bathroom a Facelift
The bathroom (and the kitchen) are two of the most important rooms in a property that will sell it fast if they have a great appeal and look to them. You need to revamp your bathroom by making sure everything is spotlessly clean. If you need to replace old taps, think about investing in some really smart eye catching fittings that get noticed as soon as anyone walks in the room. The other thing to invest in which will not break the bank, are new bathmats and a nice ornate mirror that has a definite “look” to it.
4 Get the Curtains Cleaned
If your curtains are looking a little sad, then think about taking them down and giving them a good clean. This gives you the chance to look at window sills and give them a coat of paint if needed. If your curtains are beyond saving, think about investing is some smart, inexpensive ones that will enhance the look of the rooms in a smart, appealing way.
5 Put Up Some Mirrors in Strategic Places
If you put mirrors up to make different areas of your home seem brighter, this will add a lot of appeal to the property. People like to see brightness and if a room is darkish, a well-placed mirror will help lighten it up. Mirrors are great in hallways too, especially if the space is on the narrow side.
6 Invest in a Smart Entrance Light Fitting
It’s a good idea to invest in a really smart light fitting to go over the entrance of your property. If people come to view your house in the late afternoon or early evening, they will be impressed when they see a smart light over the door which is inviting and welcoming.
7 Liven Up the Kitchen
The kitchen is the hub of a home these days, so you need to make it a warm and welcoming space that people would like to spend time in. The trick is to do this without the kitchen appearing too cluttered. All the work surfaces have to be clear of any appliances because you need potential buyers to see exactly what they get in the way of work tops.
Selling a property can be a stressful time, but if well planned it does not have to turn into an ordeal. A little planning and careful thought about how you present your home to potential buyers will go a long way in them wanting to snap it up at the right price. If you implement the 7 interior design tips then the ability to “sell my house quick” should become a reality.
