When it comes to selling your home, it’s important to ensure that it is looking its best and that people will not be put off by obvious problems in three most important areas are the kitchen, bathroom and the floors. If the floor looks untidy, has old carpet or cracked and worn tiles consider something like having a polished concrete floor in Brisbane as this is now very popular and a cost effective selling point.
1. Paint Work
Refreshing the paintwork is one way to greatly improve a house’s value. If the paintwork is still sound, then washing with sugar soap can revitalize it so it looks new.
If you decide to repaint, then often it is not necessary to do every room, just stick to the main areas, entrance, living room, kitchen and bathroom. Neutral colours are always best as they help people visualize the space better and fit with.
2. Curb appeal
Often the first thing people do when looking for a new home is to drive around and look first, so what they see from the curb is very important. Having good curb appeal will improve a buyer’s perception of a house’s value.
Ensure that lawns, trees and shrubs are tidy and pruned with tidy paths and edges.
Buying a few brightly coloured potted annuals to place near the entrances, on decks and in the garden can improve the visual appeal.
Look at the floors, if you have carpets get them properly cleaned or if old remove or replace them. Regrouting old tiles can restore them or get a quote from one of the companies who specialize in polished concrete in Brisbane to make your floors a special feature which many buyers look for when considering buying a home so this can greatly increase your home’s value.
4. Get Organized
If your home is cluttered and disorganised it can help produce feelings of stress and anxiety while inhibiting creativity and productivity. It also makes the home seem smaller and even unclean. When the first prospective buyer first enters your home, it should be seen to be spotlessly clean and tidy. All papers should be removed from kitchen areas and the linen in cupboards should be neat and well folded. Closets tidy and beds in bedrooms made without children’s toys looking messy. Just get rid of everything you do not need and do not plan on taking with you when you sell your home.
5. A Real Eye For Detail
Sometimes it is not practical for a homeowner to be objective, especially with the smaller details that buyer notice, so ask a professional Real estate agent to look over your place and suggest the things they consider will improve its salability and value.
Small things like replacing old light fittings and worn taps, resealing around the bath or shower and replacing the shower curtain can make a huge difference.
First impressions for prospective buyers are often the most important as they often asses your property based on their emotional response to what they see. So having your property looking its best is paramount, details like the floor, the kitchen and bathrooms are important for getting the best price.
