Staging your Townhouse for Sale

March 9, 2023

When it comes to selling your new build townhouse (or any property), proper home staging can make all the difference in attracting potential buyers. The way you present your property can have a significant impact on how quickly it sells and the price it sells for. In this article, we will discuss some essential tips on how to prepare your townhouse for sale.

Declutter and Depersonalise

The first step in preparing your townhouse for sale is to declutter and depersonalise it. Remove any unnecessary items from your property, such as excess furniture or personal belongings. The goal is to create a clean and neutral canvas that allows potential buyers to envision themselves living in the space.

Clean and Repair

A clean and well-maintained property is more likely to sell quickly than one that is dirty and in disrepair. Clean your townhouse from top to bottom, and make any necessary repairs. Replace any broken fixtures, such as doorknobs, light switches, or faucets, and ensure that your walls are in good condition.

Consider Professional Staging

Professional staging is an excellent investment when it comes to preparing your townhouse for sale. A professional stager can help you make the most of your space, maximize its potential, and create an inviting and welcoming atmosphere that appeals to potential buyers. We’ve got some great suggestions for professional stagers if you’re looking for recommendations.

Get a Good Agent

Getting a good agent is an essential part of selling your home for several reasons. A good agent will be able to give you recommendations of how to stage your home and professionals they would recommend to help, as well as guiding you through the whole selling process. Most importantly, a good agent will usually have a database of potential buyers, meaning they’ll be able to get underway with private viewings and open homes straight away. If you’re selling a townhouse, getting an agent that specialises in newbuild townhouses is a great idea as they’re typically more educated and specialised in the townhouse area, and their customer database will be the same.

Highlight Key Features

Identify any key or attractive features that may set your townhouse apart from the competition or other comparable homes in the area. Highlight these features by arranging your furniture and décor in a way that showcases them. For example, if your townhouse has a stunning view, make sure your furniture is arranged to maximise the view. These could also include outdoor features like EV Chargers or low maintenance landscaping, which can set a point of difference from many existing properties in the area.

Add Some Personal Touches

While it’s essential to keep your property neutral, adding some personal touches can make it feel more inviting and welcoming. Add some fresh flowers or plants, or hang some tasteful artwork on the walls. The goal is to create a space that feels lived-in and loved, without making it too personal. As mentioned earlier, a professional stager will know how to do this to create a welcoming effect.

In conclusion, preparing your new build townhouse for sale requires attention to detail and a focus on creating an inviting and welcoming atmosphere that appeals to potential buyers. By following the tips discussed above, you can maximize your property’s potential, and increase your chances of a quick and successful sale.
