Sell your Home Faster with Feng Shui
All home sellers today are looking for more effective methods they can use in
order to sell their homes faster, especially as the inventory of homes
for sale increases. Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese practice that has
been used for hundreds of years in order to make a home more welcoming
and peaceful. Now, many homeowners are turning to this ancient practice
in order to inspire a quick sale. If your home has been sitting on the
market for awhile now, you might consider reviewing the following feng
shui tips in order to give your home a competitive edge.
Everyone knows the importance of curb appeal. There is no denying the
fact that most people receive an impression of your home before they
even reach the front door. Toward that end, why not use a few tips from
Feng Shui in order to energize your home's curb appeal? Begin by making
sure that all entrances to your home are easy to access by trimming away
any shrubbery that could be blocking the entrance. Also, make sure that
all numbers that identify your home are clearly visible from the street.
In addition, ensure that your front door really stands out. Go from
blah to exciting by painting your front door a color that will grab
attention. Now could be the right time to install some new hardware as
well. While you're at it, make sure everything is welcoming by providing
a large welcome mat and some matching planters filled with bright
flowers on either side of the door.
Carry Over the First Impression
In general, the first impression carries over into the first room that the
buyer will enter. Remember that this is the room that will set the tone
for the rest of the home. Clear out any furnishings that may crowd the
area to make it look as spacious as possible. Do take care; however, not
to over-stage this area. The key is to make sure that the space is not
overwhelming. You want the buyer to be able to see and appreciate the
space. Take care to ensure that all of the window coverings are pulled
back. This will help windows to appear as spacious as possible.
The Majestic Master Bedroom
The master bedroom is one of the most important rooms in the home. This
room should not be confused with any other space, such as a home office
or home gym. Take the time to clear out any items that might overcrowd
the master bedroom or be confusing. All furniture should be
proportionate to the space.
The only furniture that is against the wall is the head of
the bed. You might also think about painting the wall which the bed
rests against as an accent wall. Keep everything neutral and remove any
items that have sports images, words or faces.
When it comes to home selling today, staging is all the rage. While it
can certainly be beneficial, you want to use it
carefully in order to receive the most benefits. Staging should always
welcome buyers to your home not turn them away. Take the time to
de-clutter your home and all of your personal items have
been packed away. The idea is for your home to feel light and airy.
Boost Buyer Energy
Keep in mind that the near right corner of the home
will hold the energy of the buyer, according to Feng Shui. The same is
also true for the inside of rooms. It is possible to enhance this energy
by placing the correct objects. A wind chime hung beneath the eaves of
the front right corner of the home can attract the buyer, for example.
If the area in which you live is very windy; however, it is a good idea
to use a flag or windsock instead.
You can also increase the flow of energy by placing a fountain so that
the flow is directed into the home rather than out of the home. You can
place the fountain in the entry or you might also thinking about placing
it in a room that is situated on the front right of the home.
When it comes to placing the For Sale sign, make sure that it is placed
at the front right of the home. Ideally, it should be placed at a right
angle to the street.
