5.Tone it down:
Our personal tastes in décor vary greatly however when photos are taken of a home and you have strong colors on the walls what you see is the colors and not the house or room. Highly recommended is choosing to repaint rooms that are richly or boldly colored (especially main rooms) to a more stylish neutral tone and that is not necessarily white.
Earthy tones and rich mid tone neutrals create a backdrop that makes the rooms look large and inviting without being stark. Even a deep earthy tone can be lovely as long as there is little else in the room to clash with the colour and a good piece of art work to set off the room.
6. Outdoor spaces:
Whether you have a yard or a small balcony you want to create an atmosphere that invites a buyer to enjoy the spaces. Decks should be cleaned and stained, Flower pots placed as accents on patios and decks, grass cut and gardens weeded (you don’t want it to look like it is high maintenance ). Play up small spaces with a café table and chairs ( even a place setting) so a buyer sees that it is a lovely place to have a coffee or a glass of wine”
Many times a garden extends the indoor space – if you are selling in the summer have the door open so it is easy to walk right out into the terrace or garden.
An easy fix to privacy issues or to disguise items that are not as visually appealing the use of potted cedars , grasses or trees works wonderfully with out spending a fortune.
