Here are some tips to help you make your home more appealing to buyers:
Hide your photos
While it may be a good idea to display your photos to your potential buyers, realtors advise against it. This is because you will want your buyers to imagine putting up their own photos on your shelves. If your photos are there, it will make it hard for them to be able to do this.
De-clutter the mess and minimize the decoration
Try to make your home a blank canvas for your potential buyers. You can opt to store your items away instead of displaying them. This way, you can minimize the clutter in your home and promote open space and cleanliness. This also applies to the first tip where we want the buyers to imagine their stuff, and their style, in your home. Showcasing a blank canvas helps potential buyers imagine living in your home and thus, allows them to place more consideration in buying your home.
Tantalize their senses
Lastly, try to appeal to their other senses. Do all you can to make the home appealing, but not just to the eyes; make it appealing to their ears, nose and sense of touch. For sound, you can play some soothing music in the background to make your home a relaxing place. Also, you can make your home smell good with the use of incense or a gently scented candle. As for the sense of touch, you can stage your home with lovely and textured fabrics and furniture. If you would like to appeal to the sense of taste, you can always offer neat snacks and beverages as well, which will promote a homey ambiance in the house.
