How To Make Your House Sell Faster
If you’re thinking about selling your house, then naturally, you’re going to want to make the highest profit possible. To do so, it’s worth considering all the ways you can make your house more saleable. Some methods are more expensive and more time-consuming than others, so it’s completely up to you how much work you’re willing to do on your property before it gets listed.
These tips are particularly handy for if your house has been on the market for a long time and you’re not generating much interest. Is there anything more you could be doing to secure that sale? Take a look at the tips below to see:
Everyone loves a neutral house, because this colour scheme offers so many opportunities for you to put your own stamp on things. People like the idea of decorating their new space exactly how they want it, and a neutral house offers them the opportunity to do so.
As much of a blow as this may be to your ego, people have their own personal tastes- so they might not agree with your own. To be on the safe side, stick to white walls, grey carpets or wooden floors, and minimalist furniture. Even if you’re going to be taking your furniture with you, it’s best not to clutter up the space too much. Which leads onto our next point…
It’s impossible for anyone to see a property in its full potential if every room is full to the brim with furniture, ornaments, keep-sakes, stored items and your extensive nail polish collection. In fact, people might actually assume that a cluttered house is hiding something- like a poor structural maintenance.
If you’re planning on moving soon, then why not use this as an excuse to de-clutter? Any items you don’t wish to throw away will still look a whole lot more visually appealing once they are organised and neatly stored away.
Speak to a Buyer’s Agent
Although you’re selling and not buying, it’s still a good idea to speak to a buyer’s agent like Wendy Russell to get some ideas about how to make your house more saleable. Buyer’s agents communicate with potential house buyers on a daily basis, giving them the best knowledge when it comes to the current trends and what buyers right now are looking for. They can offer you valuable advice that is tailored specifically towards what buyers are looking for right now.
Focus on the Kitchen
If you have the budget to do so, a full kitchen renovation will drastically increase your property’s sales potential. Speaking in estate agent terms, the kitchen is the most valuable room in a house and is worth more per square foot than any other room.
If you don’t want to pay out for a full renovation, then there are still plenty of options available to transform your kitchen. Simply replacing cupboard doors or picking out new floor tiles can make your kitchen feel brand new. Other options include replacing countertops, buying new blinds, changing the taps and getting new fixtures and fittings.
