Getting your Luxury Home ready for resale
You have decided that now is the right time to sell your home – but what next? Selling your house is a big decision, and your main objective would be to sell your property as quickly and as smoothly as possible by gaining the maximum financial return.
It does, however, take more than a bit of luck to sell your home, especially in a buyer’s market and that’s why it is important to choose to correct time to sell your home. Prepare your home for selling and make sure to price it correctly!
When putting your house on show clutter can make the difference between not selling and actually make that sale and that’s why first impressions count! Storage is an obvious solution here.
While you may still have to live in your home while you are trying to sell it, there are a number of ways to increase the appeal of your property. Use the following tips to prepare your home and get it ready for resale.
Too much furniture in any space will make a room look very overcrowded and small. Also, get rid of any unnecessary clutter that is just lying around. An easy solution is to remove one of the larger items of furniture from every room and place it into a self-storage unit at a reliable and trusted facility.
Make repairs around the home
It’s important to improve all areas in and around the home. Your home needs to be in the best condition possible so take the time to fix and repair any damages. Focus on key areas that can contribute to a successful sale, but don’t forget about the other areas of the home.
The master bedroom, kitchen, living room, garden and patios should be neat and tidy. A fresh coat of paint and a mowed lawn are essential here. Common defects may include broken windows, a leaking roof, unfinished paint jobs or any electrical faults.
Any potential buyer would want to visualise the space as their own by envisioning their contents in your home. This can be easily done by removing all personal features of the home such as photographs, trophies and other personal items.
Make every surface shine both inside and out to give the impression that your home has been well-maintained. Clean from your ceiling down to the floors and everything in between with a deep clean. Have carpets, couches and curtains steam-cleaned.
Reposition the furniture you haven’t put into storage. This should be some of your best furniture on a show! By rearranging your furniture, you’ll open up floor space and will give buyers an idea of how and where they can position their own furniture.
Make use of self-storage
Every home shows better with less furniture. Renting a self-storage unit to store household contents has become increasingly popular for people wanting to sell their home. This gives people to opportunity to showcase their home like they’ve seen it before.
Self-storage facilities offer flexibility, convenience and security. Most of these facilities are accessible 24/7 and offer a variety of different unit sizes. Make sure you find a reputable self-storage facility near you that offers flexible leases and affordable rates.
These are just a few tips to get your house ready for resale and help you get the financial returns to want.
