Gay Realtor Salt Lake City | Selling Vacant Homes

Gay Realtor Salt Lake City has some tips on how to furnish a property so that people’s footsteps do not echo as they walk through the place ~ it is well known among real estate agents that a house that looks like an empty cave may not sell as fast as one that is well furnished and looks like home. That is why it is a very good idea to leave some furniture in the home if you are planning to sell it. However, we also advise you that it is not a great idea to leave furniture behind if it looks ratty or too worn. That can actually lower the apparent visible worth of the home.

Gay realtor Salt Lake City recommends leaving the walls neutral and keeping the furniture simple and neutral as well. Loud colors can sway an opinion and discourage a buy, especially if the buyer has some kind aversion to the color scheme at first sight.  For instance if you paint the dining room bright orange the buyer might be dissuaded if they have unpleasant associations with the color. It seems irrational for a buyer to act this way but it is human nature to have a reaction to something like a color. This is why it is a good idea to keep the walls in taupes, whites, creams and other neutral colors.

Make sure that there is a dining room table that has matching chairs in the dining room. A dining room table with mismatched chairs makes the place look tacky.  The smaller the dining room table is, the larger the space will look as well.

It is also a good idea to make sure that the dining room table, kitchen counter and other surfaces are clear of knick-knacks and clutter.  Throw out used coffee cups from visiting real estate professionals and make sure there are no papers lying around.  These surfaces can be adorned with flowers and other touches such as bowls of fruit.

In the living room a couch a chair and an end table is a nice touch.   Keep furniture small so that the place looks more spacious. You also need to put a bed in the bedroom because it can look cold without some kind of homey touch.  However, you do not want to let the home look too much like a showroom. Hang towels in the bathroom and put a table and chairs on the front porch. 

You don’t need a lot of furniture. You only need to have enough to give the buyer some idea of how the space is workable. If you do not know where to get this type of furniture gay realtor Salt Lake City recommends renting it from professional staging companies, or a used furniture store. Staging companies specialize in renting out smaller scale designer furniture to people who are attempting to stage their homes for sale. You can also hire a professional stager with one of these companies to come in and help you with these matters.
