Selling your home is a process that requires planning if you want to get it right! As a former real estate investor and realtor I have seen many homeowners make several mistakes that cost them time and a lot of money! Having always had a love for design I would always advise my clients on the ways in which small improvements would go a long way in getting them big dollars! Now as an interior designer I can share that knowledge with all of you! Here are 5 interior design tips to help sell your home quickly.


NO. 1 REMOVE ANY PERSONAL ITEMS

This is a straight forward process. You want the family coming in to be able to envision themselves in the home, so remove all personal photos, trinkets, pictures and magnets -basically everything - from the refrigerator. Do this throughout the home to ensure that the potential new homeowners can see themselves living in every inch of your home.


NO. 2 DE-CLUTTER

There is no better time to get rid of things that you have held on to for a bit too long, than when you are getting ready to move! Putting your home on the market provides the perfect excuse to throw out, sell, repurpose, or store all of the things that are not essential. Think Marie Kondo!


NO. 3 BRING IN PLANTS

Removing clutter and personal items can leave a home looking a bit bare or un-lived in, brining in plants provides an airiness and make the space feel inviting and lived in.


NO.4 IMPROVE THE LIGHTING

Go through your home and change out the bulbs to make sure there is plenty of light in the home. Your base lighting should be your overhead light, and should provide most fo the lighting in your space. Be sure to add accent lighting for a layered feel and avoid fluorescent lighting opting instead for warm light for cozy areas and cool light to imitate sunlight in lower lit areas of your home.


NO. 5 CLEAN THOROUGHLY

Once everything has been cleared out and the stage is set, be sure to clean and organize every nook and cranny of your home thoroughly. You don't want the potential buyers remembering a dingy home, or that messy closet... you want them to focus on the home itself!
