When you are trying to sell your property, you need all the help you can get. Many people employ a technique called home staging to the ease the process along. In simple terms, home staging involves presenting your house in a way that gives the best possible impression to potential buyers.
The goal of staging is to sell a home as quick as possible and for the most money possible by attracting the highest amount of potential buyers. Staging focuses on improving a property to make it appeal to the largest number of buyers by transforming it into an attractive product for sale. Part of the focus is placed on reducing the home’s flaws, which is why home staging experts are often employed, as it can be hard for the current homeowners to be objective about the strengths and weaknesses of their property.
Staging doesn’t always involve decorating, according to real-estate professionals. It’s more like presenting a home in such a way that prospective buyers can imagine themselves living in it. This can mean removing family photos, tidying up newspapers and buying new appliances.
Thoughtful room layouts
One of the most important things to focus on when home staging is making sure you are showing how functional each room is. If large rooms contain well placed items of furniture that show how the space can be utilised, it is likely to register on some level with prospective buyers. Don’t leave them wondering whether their furniture will fit into the room or what the function of a room could be- show them just how they can use one corner as a study, and another room as a dining area. An unfurnished house with empty rooms might leave prospective buyers unsure as to how they would utilise the space and unable to picture themselves living there. As you draw attention to your home’s best features, you can also pull focus away from its less desirable aspects; a poor paint job can be hidden by some tactical lighting, for example.
Carpets & Upholstery
When trying to sell your home, the state your carpets and upholstery are in is of crucial importance. You can arrange pieces of furniture over the odd stain, but carpets that have seen better days can completely detract from any attempt at home staging. At ABClean we use powerful Hot Water Extraction (HWE) machines to get the deepest clean possible, and we are experts at treating stains- as you can see from testimonials of our previous work. Odours can easily become trapped in carpets and upholstery, and achieving a clean, inviting environment simply won’t be possible if dirt is trapped in these areas. Pet odours in particular can cling to your upholstery and greet your guests with a pungent smell that you won’t get rid of without a professional and experienced cleaning service.
Renovations and refurbishments
If part of your home staging process involves renovations or refurbishments, ABClean also offers an excellent after builders cleaning service.
