How To Get The Best Price For Your Home Without Breaking The Bank!
Selling your home isn’t as simple as posting an ad online and waiting for the buyers to come to you. There are several factors that need to come together so your home will sell quickly and you’ll get the best price for your home.
If your home presents well, the potential buyers will be able to easily picture themselves living there. Don’t worry if you don’t have a big budget available to increase the value of your home. These are the most inexpensive improvements you can make that will make a big impact.
Start with a basic clean of your home. Vacuum, sweep, mop, wipe down surfaces, windows, mirrors and windows. See how things are looking and note where you can make improvements.
Declutter your home. Pack or store away your knickknacks. Avoid having too many personal items on display. A clutter-free space without too many personal items allows potential buyers to visualize themselves living there.
Do a deep clean of the house. Wipe down the walls, baseboards, vents, blinds, clean the grout, clean behind and under appliances, steam clean carpets and rugs.
Paint the interior/exterior of the house. A fresh coat of a light, neutral colour indoors will make the rooms seem bright, more spacious and well cared for.
Replace old carpets or floors. Rip up any old, dated looking carpets and replace them with something more modern.
Paint/refinish old cupboards. No need to replace the whole kitchen when a fresh coat of paint will do the trick.
Replace old hardware. Update the hardware on your cupboards and drawers to give your kitchen a glow up.
Replace countertops. You may want to replace the countertops depending on their age and condition.
Update appliances. Stainless steel makes everything look better.
Replace old hardware/towel racks.
Redo the floors.
Tidy up the outside. Clean up any junk in the yard, pressure wash the outside of the house, the driveway and sidewalk for a sparkling first impression.
Refresh your porch or deck with a pressure wash and maybe a coat of paint or varnish.
Clean up the yard. Weed the yard and mow the lawn, trim the bushes/hedges and any stray branches growing from trees.
Add some nighttime ambiance. Add a light feature near walkways & landscaping for better nighttime curb appeal.
