In this housing market, selling a home is extremely difficult. In many cases, you will have a hard time even getting what your home is worth. For this reason, it is essential that you raise the perceived value of your home as much as possible, so that you can command at least what the home is really worth. Believe it or not, you might be able to achieve this with some simple, affordable rugs.
They have the unique ability to raise perceived value of many things. They also have the ability to make rooms look homey, comforting, elegant, and stylish – or anything else you need those rooms to look like. When you dress up individual rooms throughout the home, you will find that the home appears to be more costly than it actually is. When this happens, potential buyers will feel that they are getting a deal on the price when they find out what your asking price is.
While they cannot, for the most part, be used to prevent future buyers from knowing about flaws in the floor underneath, or flaws on the walls where wall hangings are placed, they can hide these flaws for a brief time, giving the potential buyer time to fall in love with the house. When they do learn of the flaws – typically through a home inspection – they are already emotionally attached to the home, and the flaws don’t make much of a difference in their decision to buy, and depending on how costly the flaw will be to repair, it may not make a difference in the price that they are willing to pay either. Some can accomplish this.
Make sure that you check with your realtor or home staging expert to find out which ones you should purchase for the home that you are trying to sell, and remember the cardinal rule – avoid your own personal sense of style, and go with styles that are more neutral in nature in order to please everyone’s visual senses.
