Are you selling your Marlborough home? If you answered, yes, you probably know how important it is to have it looking its best for open homes. But nobody wants to spend a fortune! So in this article, we’re going to share some low-cost home staging tips and tricks.
Five ways to perfect home staging like a pro, and sell your Marlborough property!
Start packing before you have sold.
Clearing the clutter will make your property seem more spacious and therefore more desirable. If you have built-in wardrobes, consider packing some of your out of season clothes and storing the boxes in a garage or lock-up. Leaving your cupboards half-full will automatically convince your prospective purchasers that your home has copious amounts of space!
Investing in brand new towels for kitchens and bathrooms, and new linen in the bedrooms, will give those rooms a top-notch look. When it comes to home staging, nobody wants to spend money unnecessarily. The good news is that you can take all these items with you when you move.
Get a handle on things
Good looking kitchens and bathrooms help to sell a home. But if your units look a little outdated, you don’t need to go to the expense of replacing them. Wash them down, or repaint. Then replace the handles with something funky and modern for a brand new look. Check out the range on Etsy.
Set the scene…
… Or at least the table. A half layed table will allow your potential buyers to visualise how a dining and entertaining space will work for them. You don’t need to lay-up for a three course meal, but some place mats, and a fruit bowl centrepiece will work wonders.
All hail the hallway
A well-appointed entrance way offers your prospective purchasers a warm welcome. But it can do more! If you have a sizeable hall, think about adding an armchair or a small desk and chair. By dressing dead spots, like generous halls, landings or passages, you’ll be adding a sense of usable space. There’s a fine balance between conveniently usable and crazy cluttered, so take care not to overfill these spaces.
