As a home seller, you recognize that your house is one of many that is available to prospective homebuyers. However, unlike most home sellers, you're willing to go the extra mile to ensure that your residence represents an attractive choice to homebuyers. Although you may commit significant time and resources to get your house ready for a home showing, there are several factors to consider as you prep your residence. Some of the most common factors to consider include: 1. Appearance Of course, your home's interior and exterior should look pristine so they can help your home make a great first impression on homebuyers. Furthermore, you should clean and declutter your house as much as possible before a home showing. This will allow you to highlight how your house represents a spacious, immaculate oasis that a homeowner can enjoy for years to come. Don't forget to hide personal items like photographs before you show your home, too. Ideally, you'll want homebuyers to envision what it's like to live in your house as they walk through it. And by removing personal items, you'll make it easier for homebuyers to imagine a wonderful future in which they buy your home. 2. Smells Strong smells may linger, and ultimately, impact a homebuyer's impression of your residence. Thus, you'll want to pay close attention to any smells that may turn homebuyers off. Focus on using air fresheners and candles that deliver warm, inviting aromas throughout your house. Whether it's lighting a candle that fills your home with a rich natural scent or spraying an air freshener that brings an unparalleled citrus aroma to your residence, you can use odor eliminators to disguise unpleasant smells quickly and effortlessly. You also should consider smells that may develop on the day of a home showing. For instance, cooking bacon on your kitchen stove may be part of your morning routine but can leave a lingering smell. Conversely, home sellers who try to maintain pleasant aromas throughout their houses day after day should be able to minimize repugnant smells immediately. 3. Lighting Illuminate your residence's interior and exterior as best you can, and you'll likely find that homebuyers may be more attracted to your house over others that are available. From dazzling pendant lights in the kitchen to recessed lighting in the hallways, you can make a bold statement with the right types of lighting throughout your home. Also, you should open the windows prior to a home showing to let sunlight fill your residence. By doing so, you can use natural light to illuminate your house and allow fresh air to filter through your home simultaneously. For home sellers, it is essential to devote time and resources to prep your house for an upcoming showing. And if you need extra support along the way, working with an experienced real estate agent ensures that you can receive expert assistance as you add your home to the real estate market. Consider the aforementioned factors as you get your house ready for a home showing, and you should have no trouble generating interest in your house.

A small space can seem to be an unsolvable challenge. There are ways that you can work with your home and adapt to the space to suit your needs.

Arrange Furniture Wisely


If the furniture in a room isnít arranged properly, it can really put a damper on a small space. You donít want your furniture to be so far apart in a room, that people canít carry on a conversation, but you also donít want the room to appear cramped. 


In the living room, for example, youíre going to want to keep some open space but also have a strategy to arranging the furniture to set it up for company and space. This means that you need to pull furniture away from the walls. This will create more depth for the room, without adding anything. Also, donít fill any room with too much furniture. If a room feels stuffy, see what pieces of furniture aren't essential and take them out. 


Use Solid Colors For Your Base In A Room


If a small room has large pieces of solid color on the wall open, youíll have the freedom to add patterns if you want. This also gives the room the illusion that itís larger and has more open space available. 


Place Your Bed In Front Of A Window


It may seem strange to place a bed in front of a window, but in many small bedrooms, this is your only option to give you space for both furniture and a bed. The bed actually becomes the focal point of the room when you arrange it this way. 


Get Key Pieces To Help Maximize Space


 There are a few pieces that you may not even think belong in your living room that actually can help you to maximize the space. Instead of a sofa, for example, get a love seat. There are even pull-out versions of love seats that can accommodate overnight guests. Now, youíre saving space with a purpose. 


An armoire is typically thought of as being in the bedroom for clothing storage. You can use an armoire to hide things like games, liquor and bar tools, or even books. This can help you to hide things, reducing clutter, creating the illusion of more space in the room. There are dozens of other great pieces that save space and serve a purpose in a living room. These include sofa tables and side tables.


The Basics


In small rooms, the most important thing to remember is that simple is best. You donít want much beyond the essentials. If you get creative with the space, youíll be able to make the most of every inch that you have to work with.
