Another advantage compared to winter is that you can also present your property in the best possible light. While snow and mud in winter could make your property appear somewhat gloomy, a flowering garden in spring is a great selling point. The fact that the days are getting longer is also an advantage: It means that property viewings can last longer and be more flexible.
2. Home staging in spring – setting the scene for your home
A decisive step in marketing your property is so-called home staging, in other words presenting your property in the best possible light. This is because an attractive interior and outdoor design have a decisive impact on the purchasing decision. That is why home staging at the beginning of the year goes beyond a mere spring clean. When sprucing up your property, take the season particulars into account: Use discreet tones and pastel colours in your interior design. Suitable lighting also plays an important role. The more natural light you let into your home, the better. Furthermore, optimally positioned lamps can accentuate areas with little or no daylight exposure.
Outdoor areas should also be prepared accordingly. For this reason, remove all plants that did not make it through winter. It’s also possible that garden decorations such as water features, stone statues and flower boxes have suffered from frost. So ensure that these outdoor decorations are repaired, if necessary. More practical tips on how to present your property in the best possible way can be found in our article Home staging in spring.
