Love at first sight, home edition: Grab buyers right away People wait their entire lives to experience love at first sight when they’ve met “the one.” When it comes to making a commitment, the natural human response tends to lean on emotions to guide decisions, and this is also thought to be true when choosing the right home to purchase. Your home is an extension of who you are and where you are in life, so naturally home buying becomes an emotional
Real Estate Matters Jerry White experience. A good Realtor should be sensitive to this, but should also counsel their client to make a smart investment. A study conducted by BMO titled The Psychology of House
Hunting found that 80 percent of prospective homebuyers know if a house is the right one for them the moment they step inside. With this in mind, sellers should make the entry point to their home set
the tone for the rest of the showing. Here are a few tips to sprucing up a foyer for the best possible first impression. ■ Create a focal point: Focus on one main display that will immediately catch the eye of your guests and then accessorize the rest of the foyer around it. Try a beautiful floral arrangement, an accent wall or a bright colored console table. ■ Do the unexpected: Most
entryways are home to a staircase, which are all pretty basic for the most part. By replacing the banister you can automatically transform your stair case in to a modern piece of art. Another way to make it pop is by painting the stair risers an enticing color. ■ It’s all an illusion: By strategically placing a large mirror in your foyer, you can achieve the illusion of a larger space. Potential buyers
will have this thought in the back of their mind as they tour the rest of the home. ■ Dazzle your guests: The entryway is the first impression of your home, so why not go big? This is the perfect spot for a grand chandelier to hang.
