For those that are trying to put their home on the market for sale, there are several necessary things that homeowners ought to concentrate on to make their home more sellable. One of the key components to assist make sure the marketability of a house is to maximize the home's curb appeal.
When it comes to the inside of a home, homeowners are aware of the concept that homes that are pleasing on the inside and show well can sell faster. Statistics show that “staged” homes and houses with a well taken care of interior and exterior sell faster than those homes that are average. This is where “staging” comes into play.
Staging an interior of a home involves making the inside of the house look enhanced and polished, like it belongs in an indoor style magazine or on an HGTV show. In most cases, this requires removing certain personal things from the house, together with some furnishings and decluttering it. The house is then accented with style accessories to make it look polished. This can be done regardless of if the home is occupied or not.
When it comes to the outside of a home, “staging” is a method of creating transforming the yard, and therefore the exterior of the house, to look more beautiful and inviting. Most people may think that staging the yard would be expensive, but just like the inside of a home, it can be accomplished by cleaning, de-cluttering and putting some new plants in.
While many homeowners judge the inside of the house to be the most important, the front of the house can actually make or break a sale. Many buyers will not go and look inside a house if the house has a very bad curb appeal. Additionally, the more well-kept a home is on the outside, the more likely it is to be well maintained on the inside.
In most cases, a front yard can be improved by simple and basic landscaping. Adding some outside furnishings, especially if you have a porch or similar area, will convey a more welcoming and "home" vibe. When it comes to back yards, extending the interior of the house to the outside with a BBQ area or outdoor eating area gives the feeling of being connected with the outside world, which is very popular.
