When selling your home, there are some simple tips and tricks that can help improve the value of your home without spending a lot of cash in the process. The reason for this is because a lot of purchasers will pay extra for a home that is finished and maintenance free if it means they do not have to spend time and effort improving this upon moving into your property.
So the question then becomes where are the best areas to invest money in and how much should I spend to make the selling process more comfortable.
In our opinion the first area to look at is the homes street appeal, walk out across the home and take a look back at your property, what you see is a purchaser’s first impression of your property. With this in mind, any improvements you can make to ensure a wow factor is achieved will go along way in improving the sales value of your home. Think about making the gardens feel easy and maintenance free, and this could be as simple as trimming back hedges, mowing lawns and putting out some fresh pine bark to give the home a welcoming appearance.
Upon moving inside the home the second area we would recommend improvement is potentially giving the house a fresh coat of paint, this will remove any marks off the wall and make the home feel clean and inviting.
Other simple improvements that can help you improve the value of the property are new tapware in both the kitchen and bathrooms, this simple idea alone can make those areas feel more modern without going to the expense of completing removing those areas.
Finally, our last idea for improving the overall appeal of the home is updating any pendant lights with a modern version as light draws the attention of buyers and this simple task can have an overwhelmingly positive outcome to the average home.
Once you have completed the necessary updates, we recommend that you de-clutter your home and pack away as many personal items as possible and give it a full spring clean to finish the transformation.
By implementing these simple tasks, you can genuinely add thousands to the end sale price and make the selling process a lot more simple and easy going for everyone involved.
