Your Guide to Showcasing Your Home for Sale 

With its pristine beaches and laid-back lifestyle, Coolum Beach and its surrounds is a sought-after destination for homebuyers.

If you’re considering selling your property now is the perfect time to prepare your home to showcase its best features. Steve Lane has compiled a comprehensive guide to help you transform your property into an irresistible home for potential buyers this season.

Steve Lane top tips to get ready for market include:

Impressive Entry

1. Street Appeal Matters:

The first impression is often the most lasting, and with many buyers conducting ‘drive bys’ before inspecting a home, you need to make sure your property has street appeal. You can start by tidying up your garden, trimming bushes, and adding colourful flowers to create an inviting entrance. A fresh coat of paint on the front door and well-maintained entrance can enhance the overall appeal of your property.

2. Declutter and Depersonalise:

Buyers want to envision themselves in their potential new home. Removing personal items such as family photos and excessive decorations can allow them to see the space as a blank canvas. Clear countertops and surfaces create an illusion of more space, making your home feel open and inviting.

3. Let the Light In:

Coolum Beach is known for its abundant sunny weather, and you’ll want to showcase that in your home. Clean windows, open curtains, and strategically placed mirrors to reflect natural light throughout the space. Consider updating light fixtures to create a modern, bright and welcoming atmosphere.

4. Highlight Outdoor Living Spaces:

The outdoor lifestyle is a major draw for Coolum Beach residents. Showcase your outdoor living areas, whether it’s a cosy patio, a well-maintained garden, or a spacious deck. Add some outdoor furniture and accessories to help potential buyers envision themselves enjoying the Queensland sun in their new home.

5. Refresh the Interiors:

A fresh coat of paint can do wonders for your home’s interior. Consider minor upgrades like replacing outdated fixtures, repairing any visible wear and tear, and updating hardware. Clean your carpets or consider replacing them if necessary to ensure a clean and inviting indoor space.

6. Professional Photography and Staging:

In a digital age, first impressions are often made online. Invest in professional photography to showcase your home in its best light. Additionally, consider professional staging services to highlight the potential of each room and create an appealing narrative for potential buyers.
