Creating Ambiance When Showing Your Property

When you are selling a property, you are naturally going to want to impress potential buyers with a good first impression. First impressions are, of course, vitally important and can make a big difference when it comes to the final price of your home!

Creating an ambient atmosphere on the day of home inspection is one of the basic things you can do to increase interest in your property from potential buyers.

Here are some things you need to take into consideration when creating ambience when showing your property.

Brighten up your garden

Appealing to a potential buyer’s sense of sight before they even step into the property is a great way to boost the likeability and ambience of a property.

This can be done by placing some colourful and easy-grow pot planted flowers, like geraniums, marigolds, or pansies on your doorstep. It's also a good idea to mow your lawn, and maybe put out some lawn chairs to create a nice seating area.

Tidy and remove distractions

Although your home might be clean, it may not be tidy. Tidying is really important when it comes to creating a spacious feel and a minimal look. You may be overlooking things that create a distraction for someone seeing the place for the first time.

Tidying up the seemingly insignificant extras can go a long way. This includes

  • hiding cords and charging cables out of sight, or
  • binding multiple cables together where necessary.

Its also a good idea to purchase stackable storage containers and store any miscellaneous items that don’t have a place elsewhere- just so that they are out of eyesight. You want your home to be welcoming, but not to have personal items like photos, odd socks and post-it notes all over the place.

While you’re at it, spray some air freshener or light a scented candle to give your home a nice aroma and reinforce the cleanliness.

Home Branding

Finding a buyer who will pay top dollar for your property often comes down to finding the right buyer. Selling a home is somewhat like selling anything else- in that it comes down to finding the people who want what you have to offer and showcasing it to them in a way which seems enticing to them. To do this it is useful to get yourself inside the mind of the buyer.

A question that is beneficial to ask yourself before a home inspection is, “what does my ideal buyer look like?” When it comes to creating the right atmosphere for your home inspection, think about the area you’re living in and the people in the properties around you. What do they have in common? Are they young families looking for homely spaciousness? Are they older and looking for a home to retire into with a lush and tidy garden?

Thinking about what your buyers’ desires might be allows you to tweak your home styling to create an atmosphere that appeals to the person in a way so that they can picture themselves making your property their home- which is invaluable. A great guide to follow when thinking about home branding is “less is more”. Presenting a more minimal space generally can aid in creating a feeling of spaciousness.

If you follow these tips you are sure to create a feeling of welcoming ambience on inspection day and heighten your chances of getting a higher paying buyer for your property!
