Give Your Home A Timeless Feel
In the world of real estate, there is a huge difference between an old home, and a classic home. It's comparable to the idea of used clothing versus vintage clothing; only on a much grander scale.
If your home is about 40 years old, with 40-year old paint and wallpaper, 40-year-old appliances, and 40-year-old carpeting, then you have an "old" house, which is hard to sell.
On the other hand, if you've shown that you've maintained your home with an overall established look, but which has been kept fresh and up-to-date, this is a "classic" home, which is a very appealing style.
The major kinks of the new home have been worked out, the neighborhood is settled, and it has been maintained well enough that "falling apart" won't be a major issue.
Two major things that your potential buyers will be looking for in your home include light and space.
Sure, it's alright to have one room that is a bit on the darker side; however, if the entire home is dark, that should be considered to be a problem.
When people will be viewing your home, open drapes and blinds, turn on all of the lights, and add lights to darker rooms.
If Mother Nature doesn't feel like being helpful on the day that people will be viewing your home, use flowers and other similar things that will suggest sunlight.
Your goal is to make your space look crisp, sharp, and vibrant. Your home should be a happy space inside which the prospective buyer wants to spend more time.
It's true; color is very popular when it comes to walls. However, there is a problem; you and your buyer may not have the same taste in what colors are best on walls.
Paint is a relatively easy and inexpensive way to give your home a fresh new look, and if you're going to put in the effort, you may as well do it right. Before selling, you'll want to stick to neutrals.
White, beige, and cream may seem pretty boring, but despite this fact, they are the best for creating an easier sale.
Remember also that white reflects the most light out of any color, and therefore it will make the rooms appear the largest.
