Estate agency Mr and Mrs Clarke offers up some interior styling tips for selling your home in a flash
When it comes to selling your home, attracting potential buyers is often a case of showcasing a lifestyle they will enjoy. At
Mr and Mrs Clarke, the philosophy is to start with style, and follow it up with substance – something you can implement in your own home with just a few pointers.
Paying attention to the five senses helps viewers feel at home, more relaxed, and more inclined to purchase. The team at
Mr and Mrs Clarke are perfectly placed to style your home, but try it for yourself too – here are a few tips:
The goal is to limit noise while creating a harmony of desirable sounds, such as conversation, music and natural ambience. We create a bespoke playlist for each home sold, and have it playing at a nice level during viewings.
Visual perception of space is on a conscious level, whereas audible perception is almost entirely subconscious, which is
why it’s such a strong tool.
Enhancing the tactile dimensions of your home really ups the ante of the viewing experience. We suggest incorporating
a range of textures into the home by adding some cushions, throws, rugs and flowers.
Replace any thick, bright, light-minimising curtains with soft, white linen ones, for example. It makes a huge difference.
The appearance of a space can either gently beckon a potential buyer in, or frighten them off. The first principle to crafting a space that soothes weary buyers’ eyes is to note that natural lighting is always better. Let in as much sunlight as possible – and position a few aptly-placed candles in the evenings.
Layout is vital when grooming the appearance of your home: decluttering is key. Minimise ‘stuff’ left out – put anything superfluous in a box under the stairs until your home is sold! Cleanliness and lack of clutter helps viewers focus on the space, and whether they see themselves living there.
Delicious food is not just for restaurants and bakeries. We incorporate a delicious touch into our repertoire to make people feel more at ease.
For Saturday morning viewings, it’s pastries from a local bakery and aromatic coffee. In the afternoons, it’s tea and cakes
– or whatever takes your fancy!
