Preparing a home for viewers is important. It will ensure that the property is sold faster and can potentially increase its value. Here are 5 tips to make your home more valuable.
- Fresh paint
Give your wall a fresh coat of paint to make your home seem lighter and bigger. This will enable viewers to imagine more easily how they will adapt the rooms to their needs. It will also be easier for the buyer to move in and use the rooms immediately.
Make minor repairs where necessary (e.g. broken door knobs & cracked tiles), these will always pay off! The majority of buyers want to move in without having to make changes.
Tidy up the garden where necessary. Cut the bushes, cut the grass and clean the patio. Buyers that are eager to buy a home with a garden can more easily envision themselves using the garden if its clean.
- The kitchen
When you’re selling a home you’re basically selling the kitchen, that’s how important a kitchen is. If your kitchen has a dated look, a fast and inexpensive way to upgrade it, is by painting your cabinets or buying one fancy stainless steel appliance. You might ask why one, because it updates the kitchen and when buyers see one high-end appliance they think all the rest are expensive too.
If your home has personal stuff in it, it will be more difficult for potential buyers to imagine what the property would look like if they were living in it. Get rid of excess stuff or bulky furniture that makes the room feel small and stage your home by arranging your furniture in the best way to showcase the floorplan and maximize the use of space.
