Some of the newest trends on the market is the antique furnishings and interior decor to make a house look majestic and roomy. The old Victorian, Edwardian and Georgian landscapes and interior decorations are selling faster than iron man figurines in a comic con. Although the major reason for this is the newest look of amalgamating the modern house with the antique look to make the house grab onto that old majesticity that once encompassed old England, another reason is the ease of grabbing antiques in markets for low pricings and refurbishing them. So if you would like to integrate this new trend to ensure that your old house would sell quickly, the here are some ideas to consider.
Repairs are a must
If your house is dilapidated to the point that one side of the roof hanging onto the ground, then you are not required to do any repairs as it will cost you just as much just to buy a new house. Repairs are required if your house is in workable conditions and somewhat normal with little issues here and there. These issues will need to be resolved and properly as some new owners would like to try out the house before buying (another new trend) and you do not want a reputation as someone who sold a broken down house. The regular patch ups of the walls, repainting and recoating, updating your property management system, getting rid of pests and leaks are necessities and should not be skimped out on. These are the major items that new house owner (even someone completely new to the whole buying business) will look for in a residence.
You will be required to dress up your house and if you have a large estate that you call home then you will need a proper property management system installed as well. The exterior will be where the first impressions will be created at so your yard or lawn will need to look crispy and clean (no trash hanging about) with some scented or unscented (depending on your preference) flowering pots and plants planted in the garden in an organized manner. If you would like to appeal the eyes of those who are looking for an old style house, then going for coated lamp posts or copper fixtures will attract the category of people you are hoping to sell to.
When you have a potential buyer coming to visit the house, then you will need to make sure the house looks exactly the same way you would leave it; family photographs, clutter, proper arrangement of furniture and appliances are some things that you will need to look out for in this phase.
