If you’re planning to sell your property during the next few months, it makes sense to improve it. You need to ensure that all buyers are stunned when they first take a look at the house. I recently sold my home using some of the ideas I’ve mentioned below this paragraph. I’m letting you know about them today in the hope of pointing you in the right direction. When all’s said and done, you just have to use some common sense. Remove all those family photos, and try to make the property seem like a blank canvas. Buyers will find it easier to imagine themselves in the house if you do that.
Renovate the garden
No matter how big or small your garden might be, there is always room for improvement. Maybe you could add a pond or resin bound permeable paving? Some people like to plant lots of flowers too. There is no limit to what you can do if you use your imagination. Just don’t make the mistake of spending too much cash. It’s okay to invest heavily if the changes increase the value of your property. Otherwise, you need to be careful.
Paint interior walls
Anyone who’s watched TV design programs should know that neutral colours are preferable when selling a home. Considering that, you need to get your paintbrush out as soon as possible. Thankfully, white and cream solutions don’t tend to cost a lot of money. You don’t need to pay for premium brands to get good results. Check online to see if you can make savings, and visit your local DIY store to get all the tools. At the very least, you should give your living room, kitchen, and bathroom a new coat.
Jazz your bathroom up
Buyers will assess the size and state of the bathroom before making an offer. That is especially the case if they have children. We all know how long it can take to get out of the house in the morning when there is only one sink. So, you should try to jazz the bathroom up as much as possible. Again, just try not to spend too much cash. Adding a heated towel rail is not going to break the bank, but it will make the room more functional. Likewise, swapping the shower curtain for a glass surround will add an extra element of luxury.
There are lots of other ideas you might like to try. For instance, some homeowners choose to convert their loft before selling. On average the job can cost anywhere from £5000 to £15000. However, it could add more value to your property. You just need to get in touch with an architect to work out the financial side of things. Also, other people decide their home’s exterior needs some attention. So, they paint the outside of their property or plant some climbing shrubs. At the end of the day, all the final decisions are down to you. I’m just trying to inspire you a little.
