Staging Your Home

Here are some top tips from our team of expert estate agents here at Dublin Homes

Selling your home quickly is sure the main aim of anyone seeking the services of an estate agent in Dublin. In order to achieve this goal, it is important to make sure your property appeals to as wide an audience as possible. So how does one go about doing this? Unfortunately we cannot do anything about where our property is located and what amenities are situated nearby. We can however have a massive influence over how our home appears. This is known as ‘staging your home’, and is a crucial factor in the process of selling your house or apartment quickly, for the best price possible. So to help you on your way, we’ve put together a few tips to help you sell your home.

Clean & Declutter

Clutter and unessential personal items take up space and from a home selling point of view, space sells. So before you invite potential buyers in for a viewing, be sure to remove things such as paper, board games, seasonal clothes, religious artefacts and trinkets and ornaments. Of course these items should be stored away and not thrown out, but it is important to ensure your home remains as open and clutter free as possible before you begin to allow property viewings.

Depersonalize

When potential buyers come to view your house, they typically come with the intention of visualize themselves and their family or loved ones sharing the space with them. As a result, try store away as many personal items as possible. These may include family photographs, fridge magnets and personal keepsakes. Various other online sources have also attested to the positive impact a depersonalized environment can have on selling your home quickly and stress free.

Lighting & Furniture

Try to make the most with what you have to work with in terms of natural light. In addition, make sure to replace all the lightbulbs, and improve the ambience of darker rooms such the bathroom with candles and dimmed lighting. As well as this, opening curtains throughout the home can help improve the overall lighting. In a nutshell, the brighter your home is the more welcoming and warm it will appear, leaving a positive impression in the mind of potential buyers. Also, from a more practical standpoint, you certainly do not want viewers struggling to find the correct lightswitch.
Similarly, rearranging your furniture to ensure there is as much free space as possible is often advisable. This not only helps viewers move freely throughout the house, but more importantly allows a blank canvas on which they can visualise their own furniture inhabiting the space.
