Today’s property buyers are savvier than ever, and many consumers already know what to look for when they are thinking of buying property. There are various home-buying guides almost everywhere, and those who are keen on making an excellent investment will have a good idea of what works – and what to avoid. But if you aim to sell a piece of property, you have to create a great show home. Show homes can showcase all that is to showcase in an abode, and it helps buyers imagine how the place would look like if they were to live in it. In other words, with the right show home, your buyers can visualise themselves there, enjoying all its creature comforts. But are you aiming to sell property? Here are some top secrets to creating an irresistible show home.
- Tell them a story
One of the best things you can do if you want to attract buyers and get their attention is to tell them a story. You are essentially creating and coming up with a lifestyle that your buyers can picture for themselves. Encourage buyers to think about what it would feel like to live there and show them that it’s not just a brick and mortar space – it could be theirs, and they could live a perfect life in it. Show homes should focus on the visual elements, and it’s good to go for generic décor and elements that everyone can relate to, but you can add a dash of personality and style with some well-chosen items.
- Make full use of props
The best show homes often feature small ‘sets,’ much like the set of a television show, where buyers can see themselves relaxing and living their daily lives. Your show home can look more natural and appealing with the use of props, which can include everything from hardbound books on the coffee table to bowls of fruit on the dining table. Even a loaf of bread strategically placed on the kitchen island or counter can work wonders, and more so if there is that distinctive freshly-baked smell emanating from it! As confirmed by showhome interior design experts, the careful use of props can make a home a lot cosier and more inviting, so you should utilise props whenever you can.
- Maximise reflection
Most of us would agree that mirrors can also make a considerable difference – literally and figuratively – because mirrors can make any space appear larger, and most buyers are attracted to the concept of a larger living area. Therefore, many interior designers and decorators will often utilise big mirrors for the walls in the bedroom, the living room, and even the dining room, for instance. You can also maximise reflection even more by going for chrome fittings and choose other elements and items that can easily reflect light, such as polished silver frames. When you maximise reflection this way, the entire home can look lighter and brighter, and it will appear larger than it really is.
There are indeed other things you can do to create the perfect show home – from making use of symmetry (visual order is a crowd-pleaser and helps establish calmness) and don’t forget to turn on all – and we mean all – the lights.
