If you are thinking about selling your home or renting it out during this difficult climate, you need to present it effectively. You may have even posted a listing already, yet had little success. One of the reasons for this could be because your photographs are not of a good quality or they do not show your room off in the best light.
The first thing you need to do if you want to rent a room out is to make sure you de-clutter. Storage units can be the best choice for storage while you’re trying to market your home. Nothing looks worse than seeing boxes, magazines, or clothing in photographs. Make sure you remove all dishes from the benchtops and kitchen sink, remove any fridge magnets from your fridge, pack up small things and put them into a box, remove magazines and remotes from all tables and benchtops, and remove all bath towels and tea towels.
You also need to show your house in the best possible light. There are numerous ways you can make your photographs appear brighter. Firstly, turn on all lights, even the range hood in your kitchen. You also need to take photographs during the day so that you can take advantage of the best light. Use the flash on your camera, open all of the doors in your home, as well as all curtains and blinds.
What else should I do to rent my spare room out or put my property on the market? Finally, play around with different angles. Stand in various corners of a room when taking photos to see what works the best.
Decorate Your Home With Silk Flowers Before Viewings
Are you hoping to sell your home and move house? Any expert will tell you that there are many different things you can do to improve the chances of a sale; from costly changes, such as building an extension, to little changes, like getting rid of clutter. One suggestion that falls into the latter category is silk flowers.
Silk flowers can provide a warm and welcoming setting. They add a touch of beauty and personality to any home, and something so simple can make a massive difference. Of course, there is no need to go overboard by incorporating flowers at every corner, but a few carefully placed arrangements can make a big impact.
You may be tempted to go for fresh flower arrangements instead, but this is something that is not advised for numerous reasons. Firstly, the person viewing your house could have hay fever, be allergic to pollen, or simply be sensitive to flowers. The last thing you want to do is cause them to become irritated by sneezing and having watery eyes. Moreover, your money won’t be wasted when you buy silk flowers, as you will be able to take them with you when you move home. Unlike fresh blooms, silk flowers will never lose their beauty. Thus, this investment will not only help you to sell your current property, but it can help you to beautifully adorn your new home too.
