First impressions matter, especially when it comes to real estate!
It only takes 26 seconds for a guest to form an opinion of your home when they walk through the front door (but others may not even make it to the front door if your curb appeal is less than inviting)! Below are 5 key areas prospective buyers notice about your home’s interiors. If you’re thinking about selling your home you’ll especially want to review this list and make changes, if necessary, to ensure your home is inviting for prospective buyers.
1️⃣ A styled entryway.
A clean and welcoming entryway is crucial in leaving a great first impression. Think bright, organized, and neutral. Updating your wall decor is a simple way to unify the space.
2️⃣ A welcoming scent.
The smell of your home sets the tone for how the rest of the tour will go, and it says a lot about how well-cared for the house is. Vanilla and fresh scents are the most popular among house hunters. Need to improve the aromas in your home? Light a vanilla candle near the entrance to infuse your home with a pleasant scent. You may also add flowers or bake cookies!
3️⃣ Managing clutter.
When it comes to first impressions, clutter definitely matters. Cleanliness is an important factor during a viewing, because too much clutter and unnecessary furniture can make a space feel small. Consider using decorative baskets to mask a mess, and hold an open house before listing your house to get rid of unwanted objects.
4️⃣ Paint choices.
The color you choose to paint your home can have a huge impact on its value. Neutral colors, such as white and ivory, are some appealing shades to create an inviting space.
5️⃣ Thoughtful touches.
Create a lasting impression with thoughtful personal touches and details, allowing buyers to envision how their belongings will look in the space.#knightonrealestateadvisors #knightonrealestate #realestate #firstimpressions #declutter #lovewhereyoulive
