The number one reason homebuyers purchase a home is to get more space. So if you’re looking to sell a smaller home, use these tips to attract buyers.
Bring in more light. Reflective surfaces like mirrors or polished wood floors can bounce more light into any room and make it brighter. When it comes to furniture, glass-topped tables look light and show more of the floor, which makes any space look larger.
Move curtain rods up to the ceiling and replace heavy drapes with lighter fabric, blinds, or shutters. Don’t let drapes fall across the floor. You want every inch of floor space to show.
Reduce the number of pieces of furniture in the house, especially bulky furniture, oversized pillows and furniture with skirts. Stage your home with sleek low-slung furniture with simple lines. Your home will look on-trend and appealing.
Take advantage of built-in bookcases, cabinets and entertainment areas to help you save space. The less that’s on the floor, countertops and tables, the bigger your home will look.
The less stuff you have, the better your home will show. Pack up out-of-season clothes, and pack up collectibles and trinkets that create clutter.
With a small home, less is more. By showing your home at its best, the right buyer will see the beauty of a small space.
