Embark upon a mini remodelling project
Your home doesn’t need to undergo a complete overhaul to impress prospective buyers. Consider taking the value to the next level by creating a room that delivers a little something extra when compared with other properties in the same price bracket. This could be anything from a sauna or steam room to a sunroom or a home theatre space – anything that adds an exciting point of difference and that will allow viewers to really get a feel for how their lives could improve by living there. Undoubtedly, buyers will be more interested in a home with one or more of these extra perks and will also be willing to pay more.
Wow your buyers with splendid interior décor
Your living room is the perfect tool to grab the attention of prospective buyers. It is often the first room that buyers see when they enter the home, and therefore, it is important to ensure that that first encounter is a memorable one for all the right reasons. Inject some sophistication into your living room by making some changes to the decor and furnishings. You might like to consider purchasing a modern lounge set that complements the interior décor, looks comfortable and will become a focal point for the room. Of course, you can take it all with you when you go – but it will all add to the appeal of your home during viewings and ultimately, secure a faster sale.
Add some curb appeal
Win your buyers from the get-go with a stunning outdoor appearance. The front of your home – including the garden – is the first thing viewers will see before entering your property, so it is crucial that you make the right impression.
Keep your lawns well manicured and your garden immaculate, and upgrade the exterior of your home with a fresh lick of paint and an attractive and classy colour schemes. Don’t forget your front door and window frames – and consider adding some flattering outdoor lighting to illuminate your home for the benefit of prospective buyers who may be viewing after dark.
Upgrade the bathroom
Your bathroom is one of the most important rooms in your home to get right if you want to make a quick sale and could well encourage potential buyers to dig deeper into their pockets for a few extra luxuries. Upgrade yours by replacing worn fixtures and fittings, and if the space allows, consider installing a Jacuzzi, an elegantly designed oversized soaking tub or a standing glass shower with a spa-like theme. To top it all off, installing heated floors to make the room even more inviting and enjoyable can add an extra dose of appeal – after all, it’s the little touches like these that can make all the difference.
Upgrade the basement
If the home you are selling has a basement then you are already ahead of the game when it comes to securing a profitable sale. Why not extend your lead by making that basement irresistible? You can achieve this by converting it into a more appealing and usable space such as a home theatre or a glamorous entertainment space, complete with a bar and some additional features such as a ping pong or pool table.
A home that offers buyers perks that its competitors lack is in a better position to fetch a higher price and spend less time on the market – and with a few simple tweaks, you could soon find yourself popping the champagne open and celebrating a speedy and lucrative sale.
