Fixing Houses: Using Psychology for Profits

Real estate investors who specialize in fixing houses for profit gain new insights from Interior Design Psychology ideas. Increase your profit potential in the new buyer's market with these new transformation strategies.

Your satisfying and lucrative real estate business depends upon your correct assessment of profit potential, successful purchasing, and triumphant transformation of a fixer into a dollhouse. The renovation process includes the physical work and the choice of the best supplies to elicit maximum positive emotional effect from prospective buyer.

This article brings to light the psychological impact of design details which result in the desired transformation, promising the highest potential resale value. By incorporating the psychology of residential design, you intentionally choose how to transform your fixer by using colors, textures, building materials, and decorations that assure your future speedy and cost-effective sale.

The psychology of residential design joins the entire home, inside and out. Transformation Psychology differs in that you make use of residential Design Psychology with a different goal in mind. Using Design Psychology in your personal home is much more individualized. Renovating a doghouse for dollars integrates generalized design ideas appealing to a broader spectrum of buyers.

Using Transformation Psychology to increase your real estate profits means that you learn how our human senses, and thereby our emotions, are biased by different decorating details and choices of materials. Buyers view a prospective home with their eyes and yet their brain interprets what they see and feel according to subtle touches you purposefully put in. Design details additionally influence our senses of touch, smell, hearing, and even taste.

So, how does all this psychology stuff work? You choose colors and materials based on your prospective buyers' income level and the house style.

Here's a simplified Color Design Psychology Plan for Fall and Winter:

Selling Season: Fall and Winter

Target Market: First-time Buyers
House Style: Cottage
Exterior Colors: Pale yellow, Khaki Brown, Creamy White
Front Door: Dark Green
Interior Colors: Walls: Pale yellow, Sunny Yellow, Tan
Trim: Pure White
Flooring: Cream to Mocha wall-to-wall carpeting, white linoleum

Target Market: Upscale
House Style: Tuscan
Exterior Colors: Tuscany Gold, Chocolate Brown, Olive Green
Front Door: Terra Cotta Red
Interior Colors: Tuscany Gold, Mocha, Mixture of these colors
Trim: Ivory
Flooring: Ivory carpeting, hard wood, tile

Your goal of composing a glorious home that buyers can't live without begins with your planning of changes desired. Following a design plan, from inception to realization, bit by bit, simplifies and organizes your makeover. Taking the time to make a design plan assures you of a profitable and quick sale.
