How can I show my property to its best advantage in order to sell it?

Selling a property is a process that requires proper preparation. There are many tips to help you prepare properly. Here are some simple solutions to help you enhance your property before and during visits.

Focus on home-staging

You’ve probably already heard of home staging which refers to the process of preparing a property for sale. This method consists of investing in the property that you want to sell by depersonalizing it and restoring it to its former glory. This technique can help you sell more quickly as a property that is in good condition is more likely to appeal to buyers.

Home staging involves all rooms that need maintenance or renovation. However, the idea isn’t to redo every room but to focus on strategic rooms such as the kitchen, bathroom or sitting room.

Repainting a tired corridor, tightening your kitchen cabinet doors, changing handles or switches etc... these are the sort of details that buyers notice. When selling a property, every detail counts. And when it’s a high-end property, the slightest defect can put off a buyer. If a lot of work is needed, you can get some quotations and present them to your potential purchasers.

Our advisers will support you during this process and help you determine a good sales price depending on the state of the property and market conditions.

Depersonalizing your home décor

Another technique for selling a property more quickly is to depersonalize your home. Once you’ve carried out a few repairs, there’s another stage you need to consider if you want to make your home look its best. This involves depersonalising your rooms.

It’s better to tone down your décor and present a neutral property so potential purchasers feel at ease when they step inside and can imagine themselves in your home. Removing some of your artwork, family photos or ornaments will help them invest in the place and imagine their own decorations. What’s more, it will help you gradually vacate the property you’re selling.

You can also begin to remove some of your furniture which may be cluttering up the space. Presenting perfectly arranged rooms, a clean environment and neutral décor are key to a successful visit and making a buyer love your home. Home staging and décor can be instrumental in helping buyers feel at home within the first minutes of their visit or making them fall in love with your property.

Finally, ensuring your property is in good condition and the right price is essential if you want to sell it as soon as possible. Our real estate agents will guide you every step of the way, from price valuation to signing the contact, and will be able to advise you on the best way to showcase your property’s assets before putting it on the market and during visits.
