Whether you own a modest Victorian in Denver’s Uptown or a hip loft on Lower Downtown or LoDo, you can borrow tips for selling your home from luxury homeowners. Some of the secrets used by luxury homeowners include showing buyers the unique features of their home they can’t find down the street or a few units over. Also, upscale sellers figure out the “story” of their home, which often attracts buyers who want a home that has a history or can serve as a conversation piece when entertaining. According to an article by RealEstate.com, high-end home sellers have extra challenges because they are dealing with a smaller pool of potential buyers. Luxury home sellers in Colorado and their Realtors have to think outside the box.
- Selling the sizzle
When marketing million dollar homes, experienced Denver-area Realtors sell a lifestyle or “sizzle” as well as the home or “steak.” Whether a person is an affluent buyer or just aspires to have a luxurious lifestyle, it’s important to show the buyer amenities and perks that come with your home. Tips for selling your home include setting up a stylish and sophisticated interior with all the high-tech toys. For staging, you don’t have to spend a fortune to put out a few gourmet treats.
- Focusing on the art
If your home has art niches, take advantage of the architectural details and special lighting to showcase a fine art collection. High-end buyers often pride themselves as having a sense of culture. Shop the art galleries in Larimer Square in LoDo to find local artwork you can display when staging your Denver home or loft.
- Giving your home a story
When buying local art, make sure to find out the story behind the art so you can share it with your Realtor who will tell prospective buyers. Other ways to give your home an added dimension or character includes using imported materials. If you are on a budget, consider imported tile for a kitchen or bathroom backsplash. Prospective buyers may also inquire as to why you are moving. Only share information that won’t come across as negative such as wanting to move because the space is too cramped, needing a home with more storage or a home that feels “safer.”
