As I’ve discussed in previous blogs, prospective buyers often let their feelings & emotions guide their home purchasing decisions, as opposed to just relying on logic and reason. As a result, it’s important to create a warm & inviting environment while your home is being shown, as you want buyers to feel good as soon as they step into the living room.
As quick way to improve the lighting situation in your home might be to have your windows and curtains professionally cleaned. If you’re using shades or heavy drapes in certain areas, consider replacing them with light color or translucent curtains. On bright days, even when your home looks well lit by natural light, it still helps to turn on lights in the main rooms of the house. Some people find dark homes depressing and that can play into their purchasing decisions.
When selling your home, it’s always important to take the extra steps to make your house stand out in prospective buyers’ minds!
