Staging an uncluttered home
Every property program in television will tell you: a 'staged' home attracts offers more quickly and more often than showing your house as you would normally live in. No offense, but clutter distracts your viewer from the true value of your home.
“Staging your home is vital when you are trying to sell it, you need to make sure the space is as clean and fresh as it can be, a fresh coat of paint is a great idea and make sure any unnecessary clutter is packed away and the space is de-personalised as much as possible, you need to allow potential buyers to visualise their belongings in your home, if there is too much clutter they won’t be able to do this.
When it comes to home improvements, there are certain ones that will add value or at the very least make sure you get the asking price for it. So if the improvements you are making are for the eventual re-sale value of your home, then it is important to plan wisely, for example a white bathroom suite is a must and a good quality, well laid wood floor enhances your homes beauty and would be a real selling point when you market the property.
It is a proven fact that 2 houses side by side, if the decorated, clean and tidy one is more expensive, it would still sell quicker!"
