The interior of a house is actually more like the beating heart of your home. Your family will celebrate many holidays, achievements, possibly struggle through hard times, and will bond and become one inside your home. It’s where your children can feel safe and loved, and where you and your spouse can build a family. The interior of a home shows who you are, and what’s important to you. Basically, the interior of your home is one of the most important places you’ll ever be. This is why selling a home boils down to the interior; and not just the potential of what it “could be,” but the beautiful blank slate that you are leaving to the new owner. This is why home staging is so important in selling a piece of real estate. Staging can go a long way in selling a home, and the best Aurora real estate agents will always recommend that a staging professional be brought in to either make some minor tweaks or to completely redesign your interior. Here are just a few small changes you can make to get your home ready to sell:

Cosmetics – It may seem like just a few walls worth of painting, or a nail needed here or there, but to a buyer, these can look like major fixes that they aren’t looking to add to their “To do” list. Buyers are under extreme stress from their home search; they are scheduling multiple showings a week, dealing with agents, lenders and inspectors and are dealing with getting out of their current living situation—whether it be selling their home or breaking their rental lease. So just the thought of adding a door to a jack and jill bathroom or painting the upstairs a more neutral color can be just enough to push them over the edge. Staging your home with neutral paint colors, modern accessories and a bit of added detail will help the house feel move-in ready and will be a pleasant surprise if the house is in a price range where it’s competition may not be as ready for resale. Added touches like crown molding, waynes coating, backsplash in wet areas and finished floors will help your home sell quickly and for more money. What may take you a few days and dollars’ worth of painting, adding backsplash and crown molding may get you an offer for $1,000 or more more!
