Interior Designing Geared Towards Selling Homes In today’s competitive real estate market, home sellers are making more profit due to the newer concepts in interior design psychology. This means it is well worth your time planning the changes you will make in order to sell your home for the highest price. Come up with a basic design plan, but make sure to keep your target market and budget in mind. Supply and demand will be the biggest factor in your overall design plan. How many houses are up for sale in your area currently? How many of those houses up for sale sell each week? Is the weather of the selling season cold, warm, or hot? Does the market belong to buyers or sellers? If the market is quick moving and buyers are lining up to put offers for homes in your area, you can do less. To stand out from the competitors, you will still need to do a few things to your home regardless of your answers to the above questions. It is necessary to know your target buyers. Make sure to keep in mind your neighborhood and the buyers who are buying homes near yours. Are these buyers purchasing their first home, or are they moving up? This factor will make quite a difference in your marketing and design plan, since the psychological needs of these buyers are rather different. First time homebuyers usually wish to control their own environment by owning, rather than renting. Their psychological needs often include such things as safety and security, a sense of connection, comfort, and self-control. Buyers who are upgrading also enjoy these benefits, but they are usually more interested in finding a larger home with more amenities for their comfort, self-esteem, and feelings of prestige. You want to make a difference in your sales price, so only purchase items that will make a difference. Of all the repairs that you will be making, fresh paint will be your best investment. Spending money on new kitchen appliances, updated lighting fixtures, and upgraded bathroom features will also give you a great return on your investment. Hiring professional help can sometimes be worth the extra expense. Professional painters are very quick, and are usually much less expensive to hire than day laborers. Tile installers, carpet layers, and electricians will also do a better job than day laborers because they know their trades very well. Picking the perfect colors to paint your home will also make a huge difference in your paycheck at closing. Take a peek at houses near yours and choose your colors accordingly. Make sure you keep in mind that colors look darker on large exterior expanses than they do on the little paint chips at the store. Best wishes on the sale of your home.
