One of the most important parts of the home selling process is altering your home and space to be less personalized. While it may not be as welcoming to you, it will be more welcoming to prospective buyers, which is the entire purpose of the selling process. It’s crucial you put yourself in the shoes of the potential buyers. What would you want to see if you were touring the home? Would you want to see someone else’s pictures and keepsakes, or would you like to envision seeing your own possessions in the space?
Additionally, you may want to consider leaving the home while you have people touring the property. As long as the real estate agent is there, it is more than fine to leave the property. You don’t want people to think you are hovering, or you could make them uncomfortable. You can also tell them to take all the time they need, which is a great way to make them feel at home while they are touring.
While your pictures, keepsakes, and other treasures may be important to you, the potential buyers touring your home will likely not care about these things. They’ll want to envision their own possessions in the space. Additionally, if there is too much furniture or small piles of things you deem important sitting around your home, it will make the space feel smaller, which may turn off buyers, as well. You want your space to seem large, open, and welcoming, so clearing personal items or things you don’t need is a great way to do this. Simply storing them in an unused room or renting a storage facility is an easy solution.
To make each room appear larger and more welcoming, you need to strategically light and decorate the room. By consulting with an expert, you can find the right lighting for your home easily. Finding the ideal lighting for each room in your home is crucial to attracting the most potential buyers. We also recommend you leave the outside lights on because it makes your home appear more friendly and welcoming. To learn more about how lighting can attract potential buyers to your home, contact us
