Homeowners, when putting their house on the market, will always be searching for ways to improve their property value in a way that is quick, easy and beneficial to them.
In doing this, many sellers try to make their home more attractive and appealing to the potential buyer, sometimes without having to spend any hard-earned money on it at all! Making small changes to your home before you put it up for sale is an easy and effective way of not only increasing the overall value, but to also ensure a quick sale.
The best way to get a tidy, neat and clean house is to hire a professional moving company. Not only will it ensure the walls and fixtures are not damaged, it is more desirable to prospective buyers as it demonstrates a loved and well maintained home.
While it may not increase the value of your house by a lot, it will ensure more attention and can result in a quick sale, while also being a quick and cost-free technique! Cleanliness is an important factor in selling a house that is often noticed by buyers if not apparent.
Other cost-free methods are: making sure all appliances and clean and working, ensuring that all areas are free of clutter, packing bills and personal papers away and out of sight, keeping children’s toys organized and in one area and cleaning all light fixtures.
While cleaning is of vital importance in a resale, some homes need a few inexpensive repairs or improvements to edge forwards in increasing value. Repainting walls is an easy way to add value to your home, especially if this is done in neutral and fresh tones.
If painting isn’t your thing, maybe consider hiring a professional decorator to ensure that this is done to a high quality. Replacing broken and outdated blinds and/or curtains is another effective way of gaining an increase of interest and monetary value.
You should also consider replacing loose or broken cabinets in your home, for example in the kitchen or bathroom, as important hardware like this (if broken) can take away from an otherwise great room. To save money, try repairing such hardware where possible.
In some cases, making larger home improvements can often increase property value when putting your home on the market. If you are thinking of carrying out a dramatic improvement to your home, the area that you live in can also add to this value in a big way!
Having carpets professionally cleaned or replacing with wooden floors or neutral carpet will draw more attention from prospective buyers, whilst also helping to gain a quick sale or even increasing the resale price. Replacing outdated or worn kitchen units and worktops is another improvement worth considering, as the kitchen is often the most popular room in a house.
We encourage you to look for professional movers whether you decide to move across town or across country. This will be the fastest, and easiest way to get out of your old home and into your new, while maximizing the value of both.
