The first impression that potential buyers get from your Park City real estate is usually the most important. In fact, staged homes sell faster and can even fetch a higher price. By properly staging your home, you can make an impression that sells your home from the moment a buyer parks outside.
Take Yourself Out Of The Picture
You love your home and the many personal photographs, decor, and accents throughout the house. However, potential buyers won’t be interested in seeing memories of your adventures or the antique teapot collection. By depersonalizing your home, you leave a space where potential buyers can imagine themselves and their family and friends creating new and lasting memories. As a seller, you might not want to remove the pictures or stash away plaques and awards, but it can be essential for helping potential buyers to envision how they will use the space.
Keep Some Personality
While it is good to remove personal items that may interfere with a potential buyer seeing their own uses for a room, that does not mean you have to completely sterilize your home, nor should you. Artwork, small vases or similar universal touches can actually help a potential buyer feel at home.
Let The Light Shine In
Add Some Nature To The Space
This tip applies equally to the inside and outside of your home. Even if you do not have a lot of yard to show off, that does not mean it cannot leave a lasting impression on potential buyers. Park City real estate is particularly well-suited to natural landscaping touches, such as evergreen shrubs in planters near the front entrance or on a back patio. The exterior is the first impression potential buyers will have, so make sure that impression is a positive one.
Consider a Few Update Projects
Home renovations are not anything most people look forward to. When you are looking to sell your home, it is likely that the last thing you want to worry about is re-doing your kitchen or pulling up the floor in a bathroom, particularly if it is a kitchen or bathroom you thought about changing but never got around to while you lived there.
Find the Right Park City Real Estate Agent
You know a lot about your home and what looks good where. After all, you have lived in that space and passed through its rooms day-in and day-out. However, if you want to ensure that you receive the best ROI on your staging efforts, working with an agent knowledgeable in Park City real estate, such as Matthew Magnotta and the team at Berkshire Hathaway Utah Properties, can ensure you spend your time and energy wisely.
