When you put your house on the market, you want to make it as welcoming and appealing as possible. Fortunately, there are several cosmetic changes you can make to do just that. Use this guide as inspiration when you get your home ready for sale.
Upgrade Your Porch
Your porch is one of the first things potential buyers will see when they visit your home, so take some time to make it more inviting. If you don't have any patio furniture set up, consider adding a few pieces. A small bistro table and chairs complete with throw pillows can create a cozy look. Consider other small touches you can make, such as a wreath on the front door or a few potted plants, to create a cozy feel for your home's front entrance. Don't forget to add a clean, new welcome mat as a final finishing touch.
Adorn Your Tables
Give your dining room and eat-in kitchen the model home treatment by adorning them before any open houses or potential buyer visits. Consider investing in an affordable, but still stylish, set of plates and cups for each table. Select coordinating place mats and linen napkins so you can artfully decorate each table setting, and place a vase filled with fresh flowers at the center. You can take a similar approach to coffee tables by adding a vase or bowl filled with wax fruit for a finishing touch.
Make The Beds
The bed is the focal point of every bedroom in your home, so take some time to dress them up a bit to make each room look more inviting. Consider investing in new linens, or at least a new comforter and throw pillows, to adorn each bed. If you don't have bed skirts, be sure to add them. They can discreetly conceal boxes and other under-bed storage items. Clear your nightstands so they have no personal items, and instead invest in a new pair of matching lamps for each bed.
Bring It Back To Neutral
If you've painted your rooms in bold colors, consider adding a new coat of primer and paint to get the shades back to neutral. Bright or unique colors might make it hard for potential buyers to envision themselves in your home. Of course, this doesn't mean you have to paint the walls white. You can make your home stand out by choosing neutral shades of beige or blue to create a modern look without detracting from the beauty of your home.
Ask a real estate agent at companies like RE/MAX Associates San Antonio for any other suggestions he or she might have to help get your home sold. With the right cosmetic changes, you can create a warm, welcoming look for your home.
