Easy Home Maintenance Tips to Increase Your Home’s Value Before Selling
Wednesday May 23rd, 2018
When you are selling your home there are a variety of simple adjustments/ modifications that you can do in order to increase the value of your home and ultimately get the most out of your sale.
1. Add a Fresh Coat of Paint
Painting is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to make a difference when you’re selling your home. Not only does adding a fresh coat of paint help make your home more appealing, but it can also allow the interior to look better in promotional photos and during showings. You will also want to ensure that you choose the right colours - a great rule to follow is to stick with neutral shades. Using neutral colours and tones will not only give the home a more natural, fresh, and new look, but it will also encourage potential buyers to visualize themselves living within your home.
2. Landscape Your Outdoor Space
If you have outdoor space it is suggested that you consider investing some money into these areas. While hiring a professional is always a viable option, it is not always necessary. Instead, you yourself can perform some simple tasks such as mowing the lawn, trimming shrubs or trees, planting flowers, and removing any debris or clutter in order to enhance the overall appeal of your outdoor space. Because potential buyers are always looking for homes with great curb appeal, maintaining your space is a great way to add value to your home.
3. Remove Clutter
It is imperative that you remove items which make any room or area look cluttered and/or messy. Not only is it important to do this because potential buyers do not want to see your space filled with too many things, but also because clutter makes any room or area appear smaller than it actually is. Not ensuring to declutter spaces can directly impact the sale of your home because buyers may have a hard time seeing past the mess.
4. Create the Illusion of Space
You can make your space appear larger by using mirrors throughout your home. Not only does this allow spaces to look much bigger, but it is also especially useful for smaller rooms. Once you have cleaned up the clutter, adding mirrors will give any room added definition and depth.
5. Upgrade Smaller Rooms
Bathrooms are a great example of spaces that can be upgraded on a budget. Making modifications such as adding a fresh coat of paint or changing things such as fixtures, towel racks, drawer handles, shower rods, shower heads and curtains can certainly give a better impression to home buyers and really provide value to your home.
