Because home showings don’t last very long, we have a short time to catch the Knoxville home buyer’s attention.
Anything that can be seen is taking up visual space and ultimately shrinking your room. If you wouldn’t find an item in a fancy hotel or resort, get rid of it (not for good, just while you are selling your home). This includes family photos and all of the stuff on the refrigerator. Paperwork and boxes have got to be out of sight as well.
Remove big bulky furniture. Less is more in a buyer’s mind except when it comes to nicks and dings in walls and other places. Those will ultimately add up to dollars off your sale price, so fix them now.
Take a look at the color and style of your home. The best way to give a home or room a fresh look is a new coat of paint. Remember to keep the focus on the room, not the paint color. Furniture should complement your home’s style and be uniform throughout.
Every space matters! Don’t throw your stuff in the basement or cram it into a closet. The buyers will look in those places and when they looked stuffed or cramped they may perceive that as the home lacking storage space.
If you are stuck or can’t see past your own personal taste, hire a professional home stager.
Home staging can definitely give your home an edge over other comparable homes in the Knoxville home market. Now get to work!
