When selling a property we all want to reap maximum value from the sale. This post takes a look at ten low-cost changes you can make to your property to help it sell. So, let’s take a look…
1. Clean up the exterior of your property.
The exterior of your house is obviously the first thing potential buyers are going to notice when they approach your property. This presents you with the perfect opportunity to wow them from the minute they lay eyes on your home. Begin by trimming the bushes, mowing the lawn, and wiping down your garden furniture.
2. Update rooms with a slick of paint.
You will be surprised by how much of a difference fresh paint makes. Opt for on-trend colours or play it safe with neutrals. This will give the room in question and instant uplift.
3. Consider adding vinyl tiles to your bathroom.
If you are looking for an easy and effective way to spruce up your bathroom, vinyl tiles offer a great option to go for. Old and discoloured bathroom floors have a massively detrimental impact on the overall style of the room. However, vinyl tiles present an excellent solution, as often you don’t even need to take up the old floor to install them.
4. Step up your storage.
There are two reasons why you need to improve your property’s storage offerings. Firstly, clutter never appeals to a buyer! Secondly, a lot of properties (especially old ones) do not match up the storage requirements property hunters demand nowadays.
5. Fix bent draw tracks and slides.
A lopsided drawer is something a potential buyer is guaranteed to notice. However, replacing the item altogether can prove to be a costly expense. Instead, check the tracks and fix the damage.
6. Let there be light.
Getting your lighting right is essential. It creates the perfect atmosphere and gives the room in question greater appeal. For instance, dim lights are a poor choice for the kitchen area, you want this space to be lit up so it looks fresh and inviting.
7. Upgrade your front door.
A stylish front door can really impress a prospective buyer. After all, this is literally the entrance to your home and thus it sets the tone for what else is to come.
Finish off your room with a few key accessories to make it look more stylish and homely. You’d be surprised by the difference a piece of art and a table centrepiece can make.
9. Replace old carpets and rugs.
Nothing looks worse than a worn and discoloured rug or carpet. This is something you should get replaced if you want your property to sell. If you think your carpet or rug still has some life in it yet, get it professionally cleaned instead.
10. Add the perfect finishing touch with a beautiful scent.
You definitely don’t want to experience the moment someone walks into your property and says “what is that smell?”. There is nothing more embarrassing! Thus, pick a scent you love, and use it around the home!
