Presentation of your home is critical when trying to maximize your price. It is especially important as PEI has rough winters and our yards and homes show wear and tear in the spring.
Here are some tips that don’t involve trying to figure out the proper Feng Shui to refresh your home’s energy. Though if you’d like to learn more about that Coldwell Banker has you covered 😉
- Have your entrance area, inside and out, clean and clear of anything a buyer might trip over.
- Remove outdoor or indoor rugs that are stained from winter salt and dirt.
- Change dog or cat beds regularly as some buyers are sensitive to animal smells. Hide kitty litter boxes.
Ensuring your home is clean throughout will ensure the buyers get the best first impression of your home and the lifestyle of the neighbourhood and these are just a few really easy tips to help make a better impression on buyers.
Recently we uncovered a bit of a treasure at the office, and old home staging brochure from Coldwell Banker circa 1998! It was very interesting to see the different perspectives of the time but the basics have stayed the same:
- A fresh coat of paint can do wonders, and keeping the outside of the home tidy and well cared for also helps immensely.
- Small details count: bits of paint or mildew smells will definitely deter buyers.
- And it goes without saying but bedrooms are very important: keep them tidy when showing a home!
We’ll include a lot of photos from the brochure as it is informative and retro. Enjoy!
