Sell my property but need a TV room makeover

TV room makeover

Sell my property, but I need to do up my TV room first.  There is only 1 chance to make a good first impression and that comes when you home stage your TV room.  And rest assured when you are thinking of selling your home, the TV room is normally where the family gravitates to before and after a meal, making the TV room a very well-used room in your home.

Why home stage your TV room?

Remember that home staging in a way will help you get your home ready for the sales process.  Ideally, this will mean that you should stage the room before you get the agents in to take the most gorgeous photos of your home.  This also means that you can already start to see which demographic is buying homes in your suburb.  In fact, P24 has repeatedly confirmed that generally, the folk that are selling are in the 49+ age group.  The younger folk are buying properties in the more established suburbs.

Easy tips to home stage your TV room

Planning to home stage your TV room, especially in a buyer’s market?  Here are some handy tips if you are planning on a bit of home staging of your very own.  These tips are practical and you can get by on a shoestring budget if you stick to the basics.

  • Declutter – put everything away that you possibly can. Pack a box if need be, you will have less to move.
  • Clean then clean again – a clean home always looks its best. Wash and wipe everything.
  • Paint – you will know if you need it and trust us a fresh coat that covers up a gaudy colour with something a little more muted.  You want your TV room to appeal to more buyers.
  • Update the look – clean the carpet, add some new colourful cushions and update the look at the same time.
  • Depersonalise – remove as many personal effects and especially family photos.
  • Organise and pack away – Display items in odd groupings of 3, 5 or 7.
  • Move your furniture around – ensure furniture is arranged to promote conversation?
  • Re-purpose furniture – you are going for the minimalist look.  Move furniture out that you don’t need.
  • Lights – do you finally need to invest in a modern standing lamp that sheds more light in the room?  Remember you will take the lamp with you when you move so think of it as an investment.
  • Freshen up – clean the curtains as well they will look and smell clean too.
  • Liven things up – a nice, healthy indoor plant will liven the room up a bit as well.  Another reason to shop.

Help prospective buyers to fall in love with your home

You don’t have to do a great deal to help prospective buyers to fall in love with your home. It’s easier than you think.  And, a common misconception that homeowners have is that every room should be home staged.  Not at all.  If you know that you should home stage your TV room as a priority, then focus on that.  Remember the goal you are going for is to show off your home and to make sure that your home looks at its best.  It’s about the home, not the home décor.

Finally, remember that when you home stage your TV room this is but one room that can go a long way to selling your home faster and for a better price.  All the effort and potentially the small investment you will make will be far less expensive than reducing your asking price.
