Home Enhancement Guide
At COLDWELL BANKER® Vietnam, our goal is not simply to sell your house, but to help you realize the best price obtainable for your property in the shortest period of time. COLDWELL BANKER Vietnam offers some practical ideas on how to successfully prepare your house for sale.
The Home Front
Make sure the street in front of your house, and walkway is free of litter and debris. If necessary, give it a fresh sweep.
Make sure the windows are sparkling clean, and apply touch-up paint where needed. A freshly painted fence gives a home a crisp look.
Appeal to the Senses
Light & Color
It is proven that people react more favorably to property shown under bright light than dark.
Use mirrors to magnify the feeling of light and space.
Open drapes and blinds and turn on lights prior to showing.
Shades of white, off-white and very light pastels are the safest choices for the interior.
Sound & Smell
Avoid barking dogs and noisy children, if possible.
Light classical or instrumental music can be effective in creating a pleasing atmosphere.
The smell of cleanliness is important to the selling environment of your house. Beyond actually cleaning, lemon oil re lemon wax can create a lasting scent of freshness. Fresh flowers can be effective.
Smells to avoid include strong pet orders, tobacco, cooking and oil or gas.
Packaging the Interior
Make sure the room is virtually spotless and smells fresh. If your cabinets look especially old, you can have a professional replace the doors or door fronts. Organize your kitchen cabinet to demonstrate how much room you have.
Remove small kitchen appliances and gadgets from countertops to create an uncluttered look.
Replace an old toilet seat with a new one, and replace an old towel rack with a new one.
Place a vase of fresh flowers on the vanity and place all personal care articles out of sight.
Add color and richness with new towels and a shower curtain.
Make sure the bedrooms are absolutely spotless. Organize closet to increase their perceived size. Mirrored closet doors can add dramatically to the feeling of size in any bedroom.
By showing attention to detail and understanding the buyer’s need to visualize your house against a neutral backdrop, you can dramatically increase the salability of your property.
