When it comes to home viewings during the time you’re trying to sell your home, there are plenty of things to keep in mind. Chances are there are things you don’t know about homeownership but should, and one of them is trying to find ways to make your home more sellable. Home viewing experiences should be just an experience. You’re going to want to indulge the senses of the potential homebuyers. Indulging in the senses is one of the greatest ways and it’s a key role in emotional processing. You want home buyers to have a certain emotion when walking into your home.
All of these subtle little touches can and will add up to something big. These are some tips for achieving just that.
Begin by making your home into a spectacle
If you’re wanting to maximize your profits with a listing agent, then you’re also going to have to make your home into a show-stopping masterpiece. The goal is to make your home look beautiful, something that can be a piece of eye candy and more. Home staging is something that doesn’t need to be too hard. While you may have to remove some items from your home, those that are personal pieces like family portraits, it still doesn’t have to be too much work.
This can include adding some beautiful plants to the front of your house, hiding all the cords in sight of your house, removing your trash bins from sight, and putting away other personal belongings too.
Just like there is heavy importance of sight when going to a home viewing, you also want potential home buyers to indulge in scent as well. Scent can make a huge impact on a person’s mood and even their decision to make a purchase. If you’ve ever been to a fancy department store, then you may have noticed that they indulge scents everywhere. This is to make you feel happy and relaxed. It’s something that works. So why not try this for your home viewing as well? Maybe make some fresh bread, take out the trash, add some clean linens, and a sweet candle burning.
Don’t forget the outside either, aromatic flowers can truly help with letting the outside smell welcoming too.
Play soft music
Music is a great way to create some ambiance, but it’s also great for covering up any sounds from the outside world. You want to make the potential homebuyers feel safe in the home. So by having some music playing, you’ll be achieving that. You can play soft music from Spotify, or even play some music on vinyl. Jazz is very relaxing and enjoyable for many so why not play that?
Bring out the refreshments
You don’t have to have the home viewing to feel like a party but you should make the potential home buyers feel relaxed. Food is a great way to do that. You can provide bottles of water, glasses of wine or champagne, and don’t forget the snacks too. Some snacks you could provide could be something such as cookies or a veggie platter, but you could take it up a notch with some fancy tapas. Creating a nice little experience is certainly the best way to get your home sold in no time.
