De-Personalize Your Property

The average buyer wants to visualize themselves in your home. Regardless if the buyer is an individual with a family, or buying for themselves, it’s important for them to feel at home in your home. Remove any wedding photos or pictures of your children. This helps create a blank canvas that a potential buyer can recreate in their envisioning of your property.

Maximize the Space

Decluttering your home helps to maximize the innate space of a property. This creates a clean, sterile appearance, as well as makes a property appear more spacious. This is incredibly important regarding smaller homes or condominiums. A small floorplan appears ever smaller when cluttered and crowded. Don’t pack your clothes tightly into closets, making the closet appear jammed full. Additionally, utilize stacked boxed to store or hide unwanted clutter. If possible, a good idea is storing items temporarily in a storage unit or other location.

Ensure a Sanitized, Clean Environment

The easiest facet of staging a home for selling high end real estate in Miami Beach is cleaning. It is worthwhile to clean and sterilize baseboards, walls, floors, windows, and fans. In addition to these areas, clean the refrigerator, sink, oven, and especially draws and cabinets. A buyer will look inside your cabinets. How else is a prospective buyer going to know what the storage space of a unit is like?

Are there rugs in your kitchen? Remove them, as a result, the room will appear larger. In the bathrooms, clear off the countertops, clean the tile and toilets. Additionally, display any white bath or hand towels. These methods brighten the bathroom and make it appear sterile and clean. All of these factors are motivating factors for many buyers.

Modernize Your Home

Does your property come equipped with a plethora of built-in amenities? Not many do. It can be important for many buyers to be on the cutting-edge of modern technology. Many units and homes in South Florida fail to meet this criteria, falling behind the times. If this speaks to your home or unit, try to update if possible. Try replacing outdated gold fixtures with nickel or shiny chrome. A decorative headboard is also an elegant addition to motivate a sale.

Another important change is replacing linens and pillows with neutral colors. Always ensure that any colors of linens, curtains, etc., match with the aesthetic of the home, as well as with one another.

Neutralize Colors

A neutral, matching color scheme can boost interest in your property. On the contrary, clashing, unmatched colors can break the interest of the home as well. Bright colored walls do not often appeal to buyers. Gender neutral colors like beiges and whites make rooms look larger, and appeal to a diverse range of potential buyers.

Selling High End Real Estate in Miami Beach

When selling high end real estate in Miami Beach, making the aforementioned efforts can be key to maximizing your profits. It is important to focus on the rooms in a home that benefit most from the imposed improvements. An open and bright living room, dining room, or kitchen is a good place to start. These rooms have a massive amount of appeal, and often where a buyer will spend the majority of their time.

Additionally, ensure that curtains and shades are open and inviting before showing the property. This creates an elegant focal point for an often utilized area of the home. This will also ensure that visitors draw to this location, properly showing the area off to potential buyers. Add a lamp to darkened areas. In large rooms, this can add a touch of elegance.

In the dining room, set the table, add a case of fresh flowers etc. You want to stage the property to advertise living there. The benefit of the flowers is they create a focal point in the dining area, in addition to a lovely aroma.

Finally, remember to remove pet bowls and litter boxes throughout the home. Not everyone loves pets, and these pet faculties also produce a smell that will drive off some buyers. There potential buyers out there that will refuse to buy a pet lived in home.
