Did you know that only 10% of potential home buyers can see past the personal tastes of home owners, whether it’s paint colour, window treatments or clutter? That’s why home staging might be a good option if you’re looking to sell your home. Home staging is the art of professionally preparing homes for sale by creating inviting and warm interiors that appeal to a wide variety of buyers. With so many homes on the market, it’s important to make yours the one that buyers remember by showing off your home’s potential. The first impression is a lasting one, and if your home is messy or badly furnished you could lose a buyer.
Sara Saunders, of Homestaging Bahamas says not many people can see the potential of a home. “Many buyers don’t realize how easy it is to change a wall colour or switch around the furniture,” Sara tells Island Living Real Estate. “You don’t want the advantages of your home overlooked and left to the buyer’s imagination.” The concept of home staging is not yet used widely in The Bahamas, says Sara, but a lot of homes on the market could benefit greatly from the service, especially given the high inventory. Staging your home doesn’t have to be costly, and there are simple things you can do that could lead to selling your home faster and for more money. Sara says that when it comes to staging your home remember that “less is more”, and follow these simple tips to get started.
- Keep a clean house
- Pack up everything except the essentials
- Rearrange furniture
- Neutralize colours
- Clear kitchen countertops of clutter and refrigerators of magnets
