We are almost to the conclusion of our 10 week, 10 tip challenge. This week we will take a look at another fairly simple weekend project that can make potential buyers fall in love with your Greenville Real Estate, dressing you home. Although this may sound strange, dressing and staging your home are relatively one in the same.
Of course we have talked about the importance of cleaning, patching and painting the interior and exterior of the home, but how are you going to make the home stand out even more on the inside? Staging your property is the best way to make the buyer envision themselves in your home. Creating a model home type feel will allow any person that takes a tour of your property to really fall in love with everything that you have done. On a positive note, those that do put in the extra time on their home tend to receive a higher priced value on their Greenville real estate as the buyers will believe that the property has been taken care of. This may or may not be completely true, but perception is key to getting the home sold.
When you are in the bathroom, most importantly, it is time to get a shower curtain that is lined in elegant and luxurious fabric. A new bath mat will also allow for you to stand out, especially if you are looking to purchase one that many hotels would buy. Do remember, these are your items as well. Once the Greenville home is sold you will get to keep these particular staging materials so buy something that will stand out and look perfect in your new property as well. A new roll of toilet paper is always a nice touch as well. Think upscale hotel bathroom or model home when you are staging.
Clear out all of the counters and make them shine like new. If you happen to be one of the millions of home owners that uses a toothbrush holder or soap dish, be sure to clean them out completely. You never want to leave a trail of dirty soap out, yet want the new owners to imagine themselves wanting to buy the Greenville real estate as is since they love the decor so much.
As far as the bedroom goes, look to the comforter to change. If it is torn, stained, ripped or just all around dated, it may be time for you to throw it out. Keep the focus on the room entirely and add a little extra flare with a duvet cover. Once again the whole idea is to make the buyers love what can be done with the room.
Never let windows pass as well. Curtains are a necessity to add that luxurious touch, but do not over do it. Windex every possible window and make them sparkle like they were just installed. Although you will be leaving this Greenville home soon, you still want to leave it as presentable as the day you purchased it.
