Selling your precious home can be daunting, especially if it’s your first time. It can bring lots of stress and negative energy that can affect your overall selling experience.
You can hire a real estate agent to make things easier, but most decisions will still be up to you. And that includes the selling price. You want to get the best rate of your property and earn a profit. There are proven ways you can do to ensure that your house will sell. One proven method is using some feng shui principles.
The ancient art of feng shui has plenty of tips that can help sell your house quickly at the best possible price. Here are some easy feng shui tips to get positive energy moving in a manner that will impress potential buyers.
View the Home from Outside
The key to attracting more positive energy or chi is by starting with the entrance of your home. Try stepping outside your property and look at it from a bit of a distance. You can also ask for a friend to do this feng shui exercise with you.
Jot down all the first impressions and thoughts that come to your mind when observing your property.
Let your friend express what they think and try to avoid censoring the information or get defensive. Be more open with any criticism, whether positive or negative, to have an honest and better evaluation of your house.
This way, you’ll have a different perspective when looking at your home. Use any information that you’ve gathered in this exercise to determine what areas you’ll need to improve with your property.
Good Energy by the Entrance
Stage your home with a specific emotion in mind. You may want to go with the feeling of welcoming, cozy, and clean. These emotions attract more potential buyers.
You should also be mindful of the quality of energy at your main entrance. Make sure that there’s good lighting and install beautiful art pieces. You can also create a feeling of spaciousness and expansion with the strategic placement of mirrors. Also, refresh the wall with a neutral paint color. Remove any sharp edges that may be pointing toward any visitors as they enter.
Also, use the main entrance when welcoming any buyer as positive chi enters the front door. The entryway will set the initial mood of the sale, so make it count.
Go Fresh and Go Green
A property’s curb appeal can indeed make a deal. Try to invest with excellent landscaping as it will increase the value of your property and attract better quality energy to your home.
If you lack the outside space, you can focus on the main entrance and add some lush plants that bring a vibrant energy to the main entryway. You can also add some fresh flowers on countertops and tables to even enhance the balance and flow of the space.
Remember That Less Is More
Set aside personal preferences and items when preparing a home, as possible buyers may not always appreciate your tastes, and it can make the home looking over-used.
Try your best to show the house’s potential, but don’t overdo it by adding personal touches.
To set up the kitchen, put some freshly baked cookies to make the room smell amazing. Avoid showing the garbage bins, washcloths, and used condiment containers.
You should also try to mimic a spa feel in the bathroom by adding scented candles and clean towels. Hide any personal products like toothbrushes or toothpaste as they will only create an eyesore.
Put some fresh sheets in the bedroom and clean the closet with any of your clothes. You should also add fresh flowers by the bedside tables. As for the living room, remove any private photos.
The key is to reduce any clutter and distractions in every room and focus on sustaining the positive energy throughout the house. Stage the property in a way that allows potential buyers to see themselves living in the space.
Fix and Repair
It is also essential to fix all glaring problems in the house and ensure that all the appliances are working. Keep in mind that you will have a difficult time selling a rundown home.
However, you don’t want to use all your profit in repairing a house. You’ll have to be smart with your investments. You can start with a reasonable estimate of how much money you’ll make from the home sale. Then determine the essential areas that need repair or renovation.
You should also determine how much of the proceeds from the sale of a house will go to expenses incurred during the sale process. Make the most profit by focusing on fixing areas that give a higher return on investment and will provide the home more appeal.
Some affordable ways to improve a house is painting the walls, updating the light fixtures, changing door knobs, and adding some greenery.
When setting up a home for sale, the key thing to remember is to maintain positive energy in every corner of the property. As a seller, you should also carry this positive energy by continuing a happy perspective. With the right kind of attitude, no mortgage sale is stressful.
