If your time and budget are limited, you need to prioritise. Shaynna Blaze shares her expert interior design advice!
Sometimes it can be overwhelming getting your home ready for sale, especially if it’s in need of updating. Follow these tips:
- The first thing you need to do is de-clutter. That way you can see the bones of your house. Sometimes just removing your “stuff” , including unnecessary items of furniture, can make a huge impact.
Assess what actually needs replacing and what can be spruced up with a good clean or a coat of paint. If your place is in reasonable condition, clever styling and accessorizing might be enough to get it over the line.
Buyers like to see new looking kitchens and bathrooms, it gives a house a ‘clean’ feel. Bedrooms are a private space, which they will want to personalize anyway, so simple dressing, to showcase the size of the room is could be enough.
Target a few areas - If your house is in dire need of renovations – the good news is you may not have to update everything. Target areas to show buyers what can be done… they can finish the rest when they move in.
Make sure the front entrance is looking its best - as well the main living area, as thats a big selling point for buyers. If your kitchen is in good shape, you can get away with a dated bathroom… if both are bad, spend money on the kitchen first.
The trick is to make people forget about the “just ok” parts of the house by making the key areas really stunning.
