5 New Ways to Make Your Listings Stand Out
For many people, their houses have evolved into more than just a place to live; they’ve also become offices, new favorite restaurants, gyms, and more. As a result, while listing a home, it’s critical to show how the space may be used in innovative ways. Here are five suggestions to help purchasers see your property’s full potential:
1. Take it outside to start:
Buyers seek a spot to get away from the house, whether it’s a porch, yard, or carport. To demonstrate to buyers a place to unwind and rest, stage outdoor areas with patio furniture or lawn games. Highlighting gardens and pet areas, as well as any areas where children might play, is always a smart idea.
Many people are left setting up business at the kitchen table or on the couch as more people shift to a work-from-home lifestyle. Consider what room in the house may be used as an office if you can stage it. It could be a spare bedroom, an upstairs nook, or a living room corner. Help consumers realize the value of a peaceful working environment by being creative.
3. Take a seat and unwind:
With everyone living under the same roof, finding a spot to get away might be difficult. However, you can create a peaceful, calm environment by adding minor details to spaces. A comfortable chair and reading table near a bedroom window, for example, will allow buyers to consider the area as more than simply a place to sleep but also as a place to recharge during the day.
4. Inspiring kitchens:
People are spending more time cooking and less time eating out. Assist buyers in visualizing themselves cooking a meal while conversing. For example, a mixer could go on the counter, a loaf of fresh bread could go on the stove, and a pitcher and glasses might go on the island. Make it welcoming and friendly, a place where everyone wants to hang out.
5. A living area in which you can actually live:
The living room is the heart of the home when no one is cooking or dining. Many living rooms have been transformed into movie theaters, yoga studios, and classrooms for families. The ability to pitch buyers on this high-traffic space requires versatility.
Remember: When it comes to showing a home, be comprehensive — additional space is no longer only for storage, so it’s critical to help buyers see the property’s full potential. In addition, of course, quality photography is essential, but if you truly want to give buyers the whole image, you’ll need to go above and above.
