Despite these challenging times we’re in, according to Which?[i], the housing market has appeared to have experienced somewhat of a mini ‘boom’. Schemes such as the stamp duty holiday and the increased time spent indoors are encouraging us to assess whether our homes really are perfect for us, encouraging some people to sell up and seek somewhere more suited to them.
If you’ve recently decided to put your house on the market, you may be asking yourself “how can I get the most from selling?”
Today, we’ll be answering that for you and it’s quite simple really; it’s all about impressions.
How do you make the best impression? By staging your house.
In today’s post, we’ll be covering all aspects of home staging to ensure your house is snapped up in no time at all.
What is Home Staging?
Home staging is the fine art of presenting your home in it’s best light to sell it[ii]. When a person comes to view your property, they’re going to wonder if they can envisage themselves living there. This means you’ll need to create an environment that your potential buyer is eager to come home to, so now’s the time to do some spring cleaning and organising. Declutter and depersonalise your home the best you can, and, if necessary, seek the help of an interior stylist if you don’t feel you have the knack for it yourself.
But isn’t it good to just leave the home neutral with space to create?
