Home staging - perfect apartment for sale
Home staging, although it came to Poland recently, has been known on the real estate market for a very long time. When selling property in the US or Canada, it is almost a must. This English term means professional preparation of an apartment for sale. Home staging makes the premises more attractive to viewers, highlighting its advantages and hidden disadvantages. The rules of home staging are not complicated and everyone can implement them on their own, but you have to remember that it takes time and effort. What are the tricks of home staging?
The first and absolutely obligatory point of preparing a flat for sale is general cleaning. The entire premises should be thoroughly vacuumed, washed, and disposed of all unnecessary items. To make the apartment more attractive to viewers, it should contain as few private exhibits as possible, such as souvenirs, photos, decorations and gadgets. Such decorations make the buyer feel overwhelmed and, in addition, they reduce the flat.
Up to the second colors
Most buyers are looking for bright apartments with lots of sunlight. Such an effect can be created by washing the windows thoroughly, removing heavy and dark curtains and other accessories. In some cases it is also a good idea to do a minor renovation by repainting the walls. Daria Fiedeń from Wilsons Nieruchomości advises that when changing the color scheme, choose the colors most people associate with safety, i.e. warm and light shades of brown, beige, light gray, broken and pure whites.
A large amount of furniture and other items allows the apartment to optically shrink even by half. The potential buyer will surely notice this and will be disadvantaged. If you want to properly prepare an apartment for sale, you should take out all unnecessary things that are not practical and only take up space. You can hide them in a closet or basement - it's important not to scare away potential buyers.
All defects and shortcomings are to the detriment of the seller. Preparing an apartment for sale means that it is necessary to repair what is damaged. Home staging recommends taking care of removing nail holes, repairing drooping or broken cabinet doors, tightening shelves, etc. such minor changes can change the appearance of many apartments.
