5 Ways Interior Designers Help Sell Your Property
In many instances, properties deemed hard to sell on the open market have been transformed by a touch of interior magic and made attractive to new buyers once again. Here’s how!
Atmosphere. That’s one thing pre-owned properties possess in abundance. Whether it’s the lived-in feel of a semi-detached house or the well-worn digs of a three-room HDB flat, one thing is certain: these living spaces will never again possess the newly-launched property feel – that scent of possibilities floating in the air. Like a new-car smell, only made up of mortar, dust, hopes and dreams.
Or won’t they? Truth is, many tired-looking homes have been revived, spruced up, rejuvenated, revitalized, refreshed, restored – you get the picture – by interior designers.
In many instances, properties deemed hard to sell on the open market have been transformed by a touch of interior magic and made attractive to new buyers once again.
Here’s how interior designers help sell tired looking properties.
They dress it up like new again
Updating the look of a living room, bedroom or kitchen to reflect current trends, colours and uses turns them back into being contemporary and fashionable again.
Not only that, from new flooring, coats of paints and even new doors, to lighting fixtures, wall tiles and more, chances are there’s nothing old about your place by the time they are done with it.
They bring out its best features
Talented interior designers have the creative ability to look at any space using fresh eyes. That is why they can come up with unique angles and ideas with which to spruce up your home.
What that all boils down to is an unerring instinct for bringing out the best parts of your home - showing off features that probably didn’t even merit a second glance from you for decades.
They refresh your home with a deep cleanse
With every interior design project comes a crew of contractors whose jobs are to take apart every nook and cranny of your home, clean them up and install new versions of whatever the nooks and crannies contained in the first place.
And after they have completed their work comes the obligatory cleanup. Result: a spanking new home interior complete with the requisite new-home smell; yet very little of the dirt and dust that comes with it.
They find and fix hidden defects
It is not uncommon for defects in homes to surface after a few decades of wear and tear. With a renovation comes the chance to make your home whole again.
Home-hunters will definitely enjoy the additional reassurance that significant or hidden issues have been found and fixed during a home renovation, just before they bought the property.
They give the new owners peace of mind
All of the interior designer firms featured on The Interior Portal are CaseTrust-RCMA accredited, and that means a high level of after-sales service and guarantees on the quality of workmanship and materials used.
Compare a home that has been recently renovated by our interior design firms, to a home that has not been done up, and you can easily see why the former is vastly preferred by property agents and prospective home-buyers.
After all, buying a home – new or otherwise – is the single biggest purchase in anyone’s life. Who would want to worry about buying a money pit by accident?
