We’ve put together a list of tips to help make your home viewing an unforgettable experience!
When you’re selling your home, viewing is one of the most important stages in the process. Selling today means traditional showings, along with online viewings. Online viewings are increasingly becoming an important part of promoting your home and increasing interest. Today, most buyers will not buy a home unless they’ve first viewed it at least once.
The goal of a home viewing is to make your property as attractive as possible in-person and virtually. We’ve put together a list of tips to help make your home viewing an unforgettable experience!
The rooms that are usually the most important for a viewing are the living room and kitchen. These are the most often used, visible, and social spaces of any home. This is where many buyers make their final decision to buy the home or not. With this in mind, it’s important to showcase the best features of these spaces.
For instance, if your living room has a fireplace, this is usually the focal point of the room. And fireplaces are still popular with homebuyers. No matter what time of the year the viewing will be held, make sure the fireplace is clean. You may consider placing a basket of logs near the hearth and using attractive elements (such as candles and artwork) on the mantle. In addition, a large picture or mirror above the fireplace can bring more attention to this part of the room.
Small rooms and spaces are also important during a home viewing. So, try to make the space beautiful and inviting. For instance, you may want to consider turning a spare bedroom into a home office. Home offices are also high on the homebuyer’s list of wants! Other ideas are to create a guest room, hobby room, and more.
If you choose to turn that unused space into a home office, make sure to use furniture that’s size for adults, not children. The space should be usable and made to reflect how it could be used by a homebuyer.
Finally, remember not to stuff any small spaces or rooms with too much furniture. That’s a quick turn off for any homebuyer.
Bedrooms are also highly important to prospective buyers. These are personal spaces where we want to get away from the world and find rest. Think of beautiful hotel rooms and consider using some of their ideas to make your bedroom(s) more comfortable and feel like a boutique.
You can start with your bed’s headboard. Nothing creates a focal point in the bedroom more than a beautifully designed headboard. Depending on your home’s décor, you can keep the headboard simple by using a hardwood headboard or designing a fabulous creation that makes the space cosier.
Next, consider the bed. This is the place of rest, so make the bed look stunning and inviting. Consider adding plumped pillows, a beautiful bed cover such as a comforter or bedspread, and more. You can also bring more focus to the bed by creating an accent wall. This can be done by painting the wall behind the bed’s headboard a luscious tone that contrasts or complements your décor.
Now, consider adding beautiful nightstands, a chest of drawers, and more to your luxurious boutique bedroom. Don’t forget to add stunning window treatments, such as drapes, blinds, and more. In addition, the room won’t look finished unless you scatter some accessories around the room. These can include clocks, books, vases, photo frames, and more. Remember the rule of threes—keep accessories in groups of three to make the space look more interesting. Experiment until the arrangement looks its best.
Finally, add a throw or blanket to the foot of the bed to add a sense of cosiness, texture, warmth, and comfort to the space.
