If you feel that the time has arrive to sell your home, you will no doubt want to ensure not only that you can in fact sell your home, but also that you can do so for the most amount of money possible. Whist it is never guaranteed that you will be able to sell your home quickly, or for maximum value, there are some things, which you should think about doing, in order to increase your chances of getting the most money possible for your property. To make your house sale as easy as it possibly can be, check out companies such as Listingspark, who make the whole process very easy, if you plan to do it alone, here are some tips on what you can be doing to get more value for your home.
Prior to Listing
Before you list your home for sale, it is worth spending some time reviewing the home with a surveyor, to see if there are any investments which you can make to boost the value and the attractiveness of your home. For example having new windows installed to replace traditional windows, will boost the energy efficiency of the home and give it a better overall look. The money that you will spend on having the new windows put in will come back to you directly through increased revenue on the sale of the property.
Once you have listed the property and you are going to be showing people around it, you need to ensure that you have made an effort in the home to win the viewers over. For example, many people declutter their homes for viewers, but they often go too far, and take the character out of the home. Make sure that you do not leave a mess, but the ‘lived in’ look is what you are showing the viewers that they could have. Other tasks that you could look to take on in the home is to add a fresh lick of paint, replace switch covers and make any minor repairs that are needed. We know that any potential buyer would be looking at changing almost everything about the home once they buy, but it is your job to show them how great this property looks as a home.
The kitchen has become the most important room in the home for many buyers, so you need to ensure that you have given it proper attention. This is not to say that you should install a new kitchen, but you could look to replace counter tops, deep clean and ensure that it looks and smells great.
Start to Finish
Finally, you ought to look at adding some decorative details, which entice your potential buyers that little bit more, adding something from start to finish. A freshly painted front door and flowers in the window for when they arrive for example, plus plenty of details in the home to make the property look more attractive, these small touches will go a long way.
Invest a little time and a little money, and you will be able to count on a boost in how much money you can make from your property.
