Are you getting ready to put your house on the market?
Or maybe you’ve had it up for sale for a while now, but just aren’t getting as much interest as you’d hoped.
Whilst there are a lot of reasons this could be happening, such as the market not being on your side, the price being too high, or being in a very remote location, there are also a lot of other things that actually have a very simple fix and could, not only dramatically increase your chances of selling your house, but could even add to the value of it so you can walk away with as much profit as possible.
Tidy up the outside:
First impressions count, and this is even more true when it comes to selling your house. If you have a garden – specifically one at the front of the property, then this will be the first thing that any potential buyers are going to see, so it’s a good idea to ensure that it’s well presented. Although no one will be expecting a perfectly pristine garden, you’ll be amazed at the difference it could make, and how just even a few well-placed plants and neatly cut grass or a nice water feature can add to the value of your house. If you’ve never installed a water feature before, such as a pond, then it’s actually not as time consuming or expensive as you may think – you can find plenty of tips online for how to do this, and also where to find things like pond pumps and accessories.
Call in the professionals:
A second opinion is always a good idea, but is even more so when you want to increase the value of your house and get it ready for selling.
Of course, when you list your house for sale, a typical part of the process is getting it valued, but before you do that, you should consider calling in some professionals who can help you really highlight the best features of your home and get the best deal you can on your sale.
Whether you want to bring in a professional residential roofing company to give your house a structural evaluation and to advise on things like whether your roof needs replacing or fixed, or whether you just want someone who can help with things like furnishing and decoration, you’ll definitely see a big difference when you bring in the right professionals to keep you right.
Go as green as possible:
Ensuring that your home is as energy-efficient as possible is not only a good idea for the environment and to save you money, but can also be a huge selling point to potential buyers and will increase the value of your home when it comes time to sell up.
Add a lick or two of paint:
Never underestimate the power of some paint as a simple and affordable way to freshen up a room. Neutral and warming shades can do a lot to brighten a room, make it appear bigger, or even just make it more welcoming than it was before. This is such a simple way to add value before you sell up.
Hopefully this post has shown you that you don’t need to spend thousands or become a professional interior designer in order to add value to your house before you sell.
