Owning a home can be one of the most exciting times of your life. On the other hand, if you inherited the home it can quiet the burden. Selling an inherited property poses the same challenges that selling a house under any other circumstances does. Decorating a house for the market is your best bet to sell the property quickly.
Try These 5 Simple Tips to Sell Your Home Quickly.
- Who are you selling to?
If the area you are selling in is ultra-hip, then your décor should match that. Less is more. The décor for this demographic should be light and minimalistic. Add a vintage table or chair for a swanky feel.
Older audience? This demographic will prefer a “homey” environment. Warmer colors will make the house feel a bit cozier. Classic furniture pieces that are arranged symmetrically are best for this traditional style.
- Decorate for both genders.
The décor you choose should be neutral. Decorating a house based on a male or female preference could kill a sale. Not everyone has a creative mind, so if the décor of the house is geared towards a guy, the potential woman buyer may not be able to visualize the house to fit her preference. Also, kid’s bedrooms should be made neutral. Not everyone wants to see a pink or blue nursery.
- Update the hardware.
This is such an easy, but sometimes overlooked detail that can completely change the room. Have you ever walked into a kitchen and thought “This looks so old.”? Sure, you have. Replace the old kitchen knobs with brushed nickel, bronze, or copper. Hardware isn’t just for the kitchen. You can quickly change the look of a dresser by switching the handles with glass knobs or by even changing the shape all together.
- Window Treatment
Light colors like white or pastels will give the room a larger, more open feel. To make windows appear larger, hang your rod above your window so that the top treatment does not cover the window. This trick will make your windows seem much taller. Your rod she stretches beyond the actual window, so that when your treatments are hung they do not block the window either, allowing full sunlight in. Buyers love large windows.
- A breath of Fresh Air
Add some floral pieces to your rooms. Not very arrangement has to be a huge statement. For the minimalist look take a slick vase and add one flower to it. That will make a simple, yet beautiful statement. If you have a large room with high ceilings, go for a drastic look. Pair a tall, large vase with an extravagant arrangement. You can get a little creative with this by using only white flowers that give the room a chic vibe or you can add color to the room by using vibrant flowers. Tulips, Roses, Peonies, Calla Lilies, and Orchids are always great choices.
Hopefully, these simple tips help you to create beautiful rooms that buyers love.
