A Guide to making your home more valuable

 

Do you want to increase the value of your home? Then keep in mind that the value of your property is frequently influenced by factors other than its location and size. Preparing your home for potential buyers is essential, as it will ensure a faster sale and a higher price.

Below, you will find the best ways to make your home more valuable and easy to sell in today's market. 

 

🧹Declutter 

Get rid of items you have accumulated. You can place them in storage, sell them or bin them. Consider removing any bulky furniture that makes the rooms feel small, 

People need to envisage what the property would look like if they lived there. People often find this difficult, so make it easy for them to see all the great living space you’re offering. 

Extra tip: Don’t make it look like a generic hotel; leave some of your personality there. This can give unimaginative buyers suggestions as to what they might do. 

 

🖼 Staging 

You can also consider having your property professionally staged. Staging transforms homes and makes them look brand new. It highlights the home’s best features and demonstrates the home’s potential. It has a big impact on how buyers see your home. Staging goals are to make the home appear ready and help buyers visualize themselves living in it. 



💡Lights 

Maximize the light in your home. Good light is the one thing every buyer cites that they want in a home. Make sure to clean the windows, change lampshades and increase the wattage of your light bulbs. 



🖌Fresh paint

Giving your walls a fresh layer of neutral paint will make your property seem lighter and bigger. It will enable the potential buyers to easily imagine how they would adapt the rooms to their needs. 



📷 Invest in good photographs 

We’re living in a digital world; ultimately, you’re selling a lifestyle, and the visual cues within a photograph can make all the difference. Professional real estate photography can earn more money on your final sales prices, and higher quality photos can also increase the number of people clicking on your listing, potentially doubling your home's attention. There is no doubt that professional photos will sell your home faster. 

 

🥘 Renovate your kitchen

You’re not selling your house; you’re selling your kitchen. The benefits of remodeling your kitchen are endless, and the best part of it is that you’ll probably get your money back. It may be a few thousand dollars to replace countertops, whereas a buyer may knock $10,000 off the asking price if your kitchen looks dated. The most inexpensive kitchen updates include painting and new cabinet hardware. 

 

🏡 First impressions

No matter how good the interior of your home looks, buyers have already judged your home before they walk through the door. It’s important to make your home’s exterior feel warm, welcoming, and safe as potential buyers approach the house. 

 

📄 Get your paperwork ready 

Before you put your house on the market, ensure you have everything you need admin-wise. The longer a transaction drags on, the more likely it is to fall through. More than a third of sales fall through after an offer has been accepted, and that’s usually because it’s taking too long.
