You may have loved living in your home for a very long time. Our homes see so many of our memories over the years that we live in them. It can be sad to say goodbye to them and have to move out. But sometimes for any number of reasons, the time comes for us to move on. Whether you need to downsize your current home, or if you are looking to step up on the housing ladder, it makes sense that you try to maximize the amount of money that you will be able to earn.
There are many ways to increase the value of your home and to help you to sell it quickly. Here are a few tips that you may want to consider before you get your home listed on the market.
A busy looking home will make everything look crowded. If you own a lot of possessions, then your home may feel smaller. Before you get your photos taken for the estate agent, have a good declutter. Box up anything that you do not need at the moment and put it into storage. If you have any furniture that you can do without right now, put this into storage too. The more space you have to spare, the better. Our 3 Box Rule Dejunking : Key To Easy Clutter Removal!
Modernize Your Kitchen And Bathroom
Often, the areas that put potential buyers off are the kitchen and bathroom. These are important and practical rooms in the home, and they need to be visually appealing as well as meeting the demands of the homeowner. You may want to consider having new units in the kitchen, or at least replacement doors and worktops. These will give the room a better finish. A bathroom update may be required too, as bathroom suites can get worn or start to look dated after a few years. With many buyers looking for luxury rather than just the basics, a redesign could help you immensely. Check out our our budget Amazing Outdated Kitchen Transformation!
Paint Your Home Interiors White
You may have a whimsical room that suits your style, but when it comes to selling you need to create a blank canvas for potential buyers to imagine the home their own way. Painting your home white throughout will not only do this, but it will also help to create a better sense of light and an illusion of space throughout your home. Our Free Room Makeover Kit can help you plan your colors etc!
Creating A Great First Impression
The outside of your home is the thing that people will see first when they drive up. With this in mind, it is definitely worth investing some time, effort, and money into sprucing up the exterior of your property.
Starting with the roof, you should replace or repair any damaged or loose tiles and shingles. Clean your gutters out and make sure that all of your pipes are clean on the outside too. Walls can get weathered over time, and you may want to get your walls whitewashed or repainted. Painting window ledges will help to create a nicer finish.
We’re always amazed at how even a modest amount of effort with the right mindset towards your potential buyer can make all the difference in the world as to how quickly and profitably a home can sell. We hope these few practical suggestions will help to put you on the right path to make the most from the sale of your home.
