STAGING – Simple Mistakes That Lead Potential Buyers to Believe There is Not Enough Space in Your Home
Everyone wants a home that feels spacious; this is one of the top requirements that surveyed potential buyers are looking for.
Often our homes have a lot of space but it does not appear that way. The way we live in our homes, our accumulation of possessions and inadequate preparation will tell buyers that your home is smaller than it actually is.
Here are some things that will prevent the buyer from seeing the amount of space you actually have.
1. Closets that are overflowing with clothing and jammed too tightly
2. Plastic storage containers that fall on the floor when the cupboard door opens
3. Counter drawers that don’t flow open easily because they are crammed with too much stuff or don’t work properly
4. Kitchen and bathroom counter tops piled with household items with no free space remaining
5. Heavy and closed draperies or dirty windows that make the room dark
6. Dark, harsh paint colors and certain wallpapers
7. Too much furniture or too many accessories that make the room look small and crammed
8. Too few or inadequate lamps and lighting sources
9. Walkways within each room too shallow
10. Too many small knickknacks and pictures
Space may not be the final frontier when selling a home, but it is an important one. Make sure you eliminate these mistakes and the length of time your home will stay unsold on the market.
