Goodbye to sad photos
To advertise your home it is imperative that the photos you show are of quality and highlight your strengths. A good framing or adequate lighting work miracles. It is the first claim, which will give rise to a visit or not. That is why it is not understood that many times we see photographic disasters that stop perpetrated by the seller’s worst enemy. Rioted rooms, with lowered blinds, poorly made beds …. If you cannot get the services of a professional, look for someone with good hand for photography or strive a little, because you have to be aware that you are playing.
You have to “depersonalize”
When a potential buyer enters your home, you should see yourself living in it. This feeling, according to experts, usually occurs in the first seconds. For this reason, your collections of ‘Star Wars’ dolls, your honeymoon photo, your football trophies and the crafts of your children should disappear, however much you find them endearing. Your house is no longer your home: it is a commercial space.
Smells that kill … or sell
As it is that the first impression is good (if not, there is nothing to do), the smell is a fundamental issue. If you have a pet, you must eliminate its olfactory presence. Ventilate the house well so that it does not smell closed or food. If the buyer perceives any unwanted smell, it will be against. For the smell to be pleasant, some property agents recommend making coffee or baking something, so that the sensation upon entering is positive. Eye with strong air fresheners, can also produce rejection. It’s about creating a cozy atmosphere and playing with the senses.
You have to order. Many times the houses seem worse than they are for the profusion of things that have ended up accumulating here and there as if by magic. Maybe we have become accustomed and we no longer notice his presence, but the truth is that they take away space, give a sense of disorder and recharge the environment. You have to clear as much as possible. You do not have to trust that the buyer is going to make an effort of imagination to see the possibilities of space that you show him if he takes things away or changes something.
If necessary, get rid of those that are not worth it and make the whole thing look bad. And those that remain, place them so that there are large areas of passage. But do not leave the rooms empty, because they give the feeling of being small and that does not work either.
When entering a house, one of the first things that the possible buyer will look for is light. Therefore, we must try to enhance it as it is. If there is good natural light, take advantage of it (shutters above, open curtains if they are thick) and, if not, resort to the artificial one, with points of warm light distributed throughout the house. To gain luminosity, remove dark carpets and textiles-from the sofa, from the beds-and replace them with other clearings.
Fix the flaws
It is not about embarking on a major reform, but it is convenient to fix small damages – cracks, moisture stains, a broken plug … It does not cost much and prevents the buyer from trying to win by grabbing those mistakes. The bathroom and the kitchen are especially important. If the tiles are outdated or not in good condition, give them a coat of special paint. The change is brutal. In the end, people have to understand that it is an investment. And, for very little money, the results are very remarkable. It is sold before and at a better price, absolutely guaranteed. Some reports say that an investment of 1,000 dollars means a difference in the sale price of 5,000 to 6,000 dollars.
Those little taps, a plus
The house is already clean, tidy, repaired … How can we make it even more beautiful? Well with a few simple details that give the final touch. For example, a vase with flowers, a plant, some new towels in the bathroom or a small reading corner.
