5 top tips for making your home look Instagram-worthy when selling and why it’s important.

5 top tips for making your home look Instagram-worthy when selling and why it’s important.

Make your home instagram worthy

It comes as no surprise that social media has reshaped our ideas on what is considered as the perfect home, and when our property is up for sale we all want it to look as good as possible in order to maximize its value and attract the right buyer. 

However, in the age of Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest, and their highly visual nature ‘looking good’ has taken on a whole new meaning.  It’s no longer just about decluttering the living room, baking fresh bread or putting on a pot of coffee.  Having a home that’s Instagram-worthy can significantly increase your chances of receiving a solid offer from a buyer.

The ‘buying state of mind.’

According to a recent study, 72% of users reported that they’ve made style-related purchases after seeing a product on Instagram.  Pinterest claim that users come to their platform in a “buying state of mind” and that Pinterest inspires them to shop even if they are not searching for something specific!

So by ensuring that your home is Instagram-worthy when your viewing takes place, buyers will arrive at your front door in a “buying state of mind”

Here are our 5 top tips

Stage your home

According to a large amount of studies, staging a home really can really help it sell faster and for more money.  Don’t forget to also spruce up your home’s curb appeal when staging the home.  After all, the outside of the home is the first thing potential buyers will see when they pull up for a viewing.  So make sure that the grass is cut and the garden is tidy.  Fortunately, staging your home’s interior can be easy and affordable with the right advice.  For more information we recommend speaking to our friends and Little Barn Door.    

Give your home a deep clean

First impressions are massively important.  So don’t let pet smells, dirty floors or dusty surfaces make a bad impression on a potential buyer.  Throughout the selling process, give your home a deep clean.  This means cleaning toilets, wiping down surfaces, mopping floors, cleaning rugs and scrubbing bathrooms.

Bring In More Colour

Generally you cant go wrong with a monochromatic or neutral look.  However it doesn’t hurt to bring in a little colour.  Swap out boring throws and pillows for some with bright patterns.  Create a feature wall in the room with a colour that makes you happy. Or embrace wallpaper that helps highlight other colourful details in the room.

Add Life to the Space

All properties look better with a bit of life in them. Plants and flowers inside are a great way of enhancing the look and feel of a home.  Just make sure you keep them watered and pruned throughout your time on the market.

Buy more light bulbs

When showing your home to potential buyers, all light fixtures and site lights will need to be turned on. This will create a warm homely feel. For this reason, it’s important that all lights in your home are properly working.  So go ahead and stock up on light bulbs.
