When you’re getting ready to move into a new home, making sure your current home is staged perfectly to get the best sale possible can be difficult to manage. There are so many other things going on that it’s easy to leave your house in it’s current state instead. While staging your home might seem like a lot of work, it can help you sell your home faster and at the highest price possible. When you’re staging your current home for sale, Self Storage in Northcote from StoreLocal Northcote can help you.
Increase curb appeal
First impressions are important, and the front lawn of your home helps create the first impression potential buyers form about your home. Invest some time and effort into cleaning out your front lawn. Repair any aspects that are damaged, such as fencing or broken brickwork. Repaint the exterior of your home to a warm, inviting, and neutral colour. Make sure the lawn is mowed and any dead plants are revived or removed. Any equipment or lawn furniture that detracts from your home should be moved into your storage unit in Northcote.
Minimise and organise the interior
The outside of your home isn’t the only part that needs organisation. Creating a neat and organised home interior is just as important. Decluttering your home can make the internal spaces feel brighter, larger, and more inviting. Go through your belongings and throw away the items that are broken, donate or sell the items you no longer need or use, and move the items you want to keep but aren’t essential for daily functions into Northcote Self Storage. Removing some of your more personal items and decor can also help potential buyers better envision themselves in your home, making them more interested in putting in an offer.
Backyard living spaces
You’ll also need to spend some time in your backyard to make sure it looks neat when your buyers arrive. Clean up the yard by removing leaves, fallen debris, and old and worn-out decorations. Trim the plants and trees and make sure everything looks lively and attractive. If you have any concreted areas, use a pressure washer to deep clean these pathways and patios. Arrange any furniture in an inviting pattern, and move any excess items, such as children’s toys and garden tools, into your storage in Northcote.
