How To Maximise The Value Of Your House (Before You Sell)
Everyone wants to achieve the highest possible price when they sell their homes. Luckily, you can maximise the value of your house without having to pay for expensive renovations. Here are a few tips and tricks which can create a great first impression when selling your home.
Clean Up Your Garden
When potential buyers inspect your home, this is the first thing they will see. By putting in some new soil, plants, and ornaments, it won’t break the bank and can make a great first impression and boost street appeal. This often leads to your house selling quickly, instead of it being on the market for months.
Reduce Clutter In Your Home
Pack away extra furniture and belongings to make your home seem more spacious and create open living spaces. It will make your home appear larger, and also allow any potential buyers to picture and imagine their furniture and belongings inside your home.
Take Care Of Odd Jobs
Now’s the time to go through your to-do list of any odd jobs you’ve been putting off for months (or years!). Focus on any light bulbs or fixtures, as well as sinks, cabinets, and bathrooms. Repair any damaged areas which may be scratched or chipped.
Add A Fresh Coat Of Paint
Adding a new coat of paint is one of the easiest and cheapest ways to make your home look fresh. Stick to neutral colours, as they will make the space look larger. A freshly painted house also makes it easier for buyers to imagine their own decor and style in the home.
Check The Doors And Windows
Consider replacing the doors and windows of your home with energy-efficient options instead. Otherwise, make sure that every door and window fits properly and is easy to open and close. Also, repair any damage or cracks.
Give Your Kitchen a Modern Makeover
The kitchen is often the heart of any home. You should try to make it inviting, and a place which prospective homeowners can picture themselves spending hours in. To give it a modern makeover, you can do so with just a few minor changes rather than a full-scale renovation. Change the taps, and cupboards to help increase the asking price.
Make Sure Your Bathroom Is Sparkling Clean
While an older style bathroom is something which most buyers make an allowance for, a dirty one is often an instant deal-breaker. Make sure everything is sparkling clean, and do any small repairs if required. Adding a new sink or toilet can leave a great first impression, without a considerable expense.
Prepare Your Property To Move Straight Into
If your home is suited to first home buyers, make sure that it’s ready for them to move straight in. This should mean that there isn’t any major repair, renovation, or decoration required. Doing so can help your property stand out from others on the local market, and become the most memorable and attractive option.
