Appeal to Your Target Demographic
Every city, neighborhood, building, and home has specific types of buyers that gravitate towards that place, the amenities it offers, and the style. Think about who those buyers would be and tailor your interior to be appealing to them. If young families are the target, consider family-friendly spaces. If tech bachelors are the target demographic, focus on work-from-home space and home entertainment spaces.
When people look at real estate listings, they often look at the tangible characteristics of the property. But when they come in to visit those spaces, they want to feel an emotional connection with the home. Remember to create spaces that are inviting by using warm, earthy color palettes, ample upholstery to make the space feel comfortable, and functional, and useful spaces that buyers can envision themselves spending time in.
Improvements that Add Value
Real estate will always continue to grow in value, but the value that a buyer is willing to pay is often tied to the amenities of the home and the convenience of having everything already done for them. Things like a beautiful kitchen renovation, modernizing bathrooms, lush landscaping, and basement conversions are all great additions you can invest in that will pay for themselves.
Lighting is Key
Both natural lighting and electrified lighting can have a dramatic effect on your property and how attractive it is to buyers. Make sure to amplify the light in each space by opening curtains, adding large mirrors, keeping spaces open, and installing high-quality lighting in every space. For interior residential lighting, look for 3000 Kelvin warmth and 90 CRI - which stands for Color Rendering Index and makes colors appear more vivid and true than low quality light
