One of the most infuriating problems that homeowners come across when they are trying sell is that you have to outlay money to get the property ready. This can cause a lot of people to delay selling their property and so miss out on the best price. Read on to find out how you can make your property as attractive as possible to potential buyers without spending your life’s savings.
Before you jump headlong into all that DIY and decoration, the first thing you need to do is give your home a really deep clean. I mean pull out all the furniture and clean behind it. Get the carpets and rugs professionally cleaned and send the curtain to the dry cleaners. “But that will cost a fortune,” I hear you say! We’ll i can tell you that it definitely won’t cost as much as repainting and carpeting the whole house, and you may well get a similar result! Don’t pay for upgrades when all your property really needs is clean.
If you have given the house a good once over in the cleaning department, and you still find it lacking then, it’s time to upgrade the decoration. I don’t know how many times this can be stressed, but white walls really do sell houses! White is neutral so they potential buyers can impose their own ideas on it. It also reflects the light beautifully, making any room seem bigger and airier
If you are concerned that a bright white will make the room look too cold, why not use a white with a hint of another color in like gray or oatmeal?
Along with any decorating updates that need doing, you should also focus on visible repairs. Things like faulty garage doors, leaking taps and damp, will have potential buyers running for the hills.
People do not, as a rule, want to pour all of their hard earned money into a home that needs a lot of work doing to it. Yes, you do get some people that are looking for a door upper. But they will expect a wasting reduced asking price for their trouble. To get the best price, your home need to be in tip-top condition.
Everyone knows this by now, but clutter can sound the death knell on a home sale. Put yourself in the buyer’s shoes. Would you be attracted to a house that is stuffed to the gunnels with knick knack, furniture, and other associated BRIC A BRAC? No? Then neither will they.
Have some Objet d’art and furniture that you just can’t bear to part with? Then rent some storage space and hire a moving company to transports your precious cargo. Then you can put it back in your new home when all the sales have gone through.
That’s because kitchen style matters to potential buyers and they are time-consuming and expensive to replace. Having the right kitchen can sway a deal. Get the best look you can for a reduced price by shopping in the sale or just replacing the cabinet doors instead of the entire kitchen.
