Beauty Sells and You Can’t Undo A First Impression. It’s a fact. Beauty brings emotional attachment and buyers will pay more for that. Never allow potential buyers to see a property until it is as beautiful as possible and ready to be seen. As much as reasonably possible, potential buyers should be impressed before they get out of their car, as soon as the enter the home, as they move through the home and if there is a yard, as they enter the yard. Offer less than that and you’re cheating yourself by hurting the sale.
De-clutter then de-clutter again. Clean then clean again. There’s no such thing as too little clutter or too clean.
There’s also no such thing as too much light so use the highest CRI, brightest bulbs you can safely put in all the fixtures. I recommend the new LEDs.
Focus on beauty not practicality. Use flat or low sheen wall paint, not semi gloss. It looks better. Use colors that compliment the home. If it’s a classic home, use classic colors, modern home, use modern colors and so on.
Use landscaping. Abhors, potted plants, bark, pavers, anything that works in visual harmony with the home to start or continue the beauty on the outside.
If you have an eye for color and a flair for style, perfect. If not or your taste leans towards the practical, get someone else to do this. It’s all about the beauty.
