Description

Make the house feel welcoming when your visitors arrive. They should relax and smile as they come through the door and feel really at home as they walk around.

Things to do to make the house feel welcoming include:

  • Flowers in the garden and in vases around the home
  • Temperature and humidity that are just nice and comfortable
  • Warm lighting (slightly orange), arranged as pools of light.
  • Gentle oranges, reds and yellows around the place (flowers, cushions, etc.)

Also remove things that may frighten them, such as animals and strongly emotive paintings.

If you are doing the welcoming, do remember to smile, shake hands, pay attention to them, and generally act as if they are important friends coming to see you.

Discussion

'Welcoming' leads to an emotions of comfort and safety which you are trying to create. This is one of the most powerful things you can do when selling a house as it gets the buyer into the state of feeling like it is their house already as they imagine coming home to such warmth every day.

Warm colors are at the red end of the spectrum. Blues and greens are generally colder. Warmth relaxes. Coldness makes people tense. Warm and comfortable people make positive decisions. Cold or stuffy people just want to get out.
