When it’s time to sell your home you’ll want to do as much as possible to ensure you get the maximum price. After all, in a market where prices keep rising those few extra dollars will make a difference.
Of course, the home improvements you do need to add more value to your home than they cost you. This is why it is essential to choose the right ways to boost your home’s resale value:
You might take the exterior of your home for granted. After all, you pull up every day and go straight in the front door.
But, a tired looking house will put off buyers. It suggests the inside is not well maintained. This is one issue that can be easily rectified. All you need is a curtain wall, also known as a façade.
You can use uPVC, wood, concrete stone or even metal. The effect will be instant. As well as transforming the outside it will improve your insulation and keep your home warmer in the winter and cooling in the summer.
Remove The Clutter
When people visit to view a house they want it to feel like a family home. This means that you need to have some personal belongings out.
However, they also want to be able to see themselves living in the house.
Simply removing obvious clutter will cost you nothing and yet will make your home more appealing. In fact, it will add value as it appears bigger!
A coat of paint can make a huge difference to how perspective buyers see your home. It doesn’t need to cost a fortune to repaint your home.
All you need to do is keep the colors neutral and the buyers will be able to visualize themselves in your home. A fresh coat of paint will show a house that is loved; adding value and appeal to any potential buyer.
If your budget will stretch to it then it can be a good investment to replace the flooring in the main rooms.
You will hardly notice the marks which have appeared over time but a buyer will see them. By adding fresh carpet or vinyl flooring you’ll transform the look of each room.
This is especially true if you’ve repainted as well. The house will look like new for very little expense and you can expect to charge maximum resale price.
It is also important to consider how light your home is. Remove heavy and dark curtains to maximize the light in each room. This creates the feeling of space and encourages positive moods.
Again, this will help to ensure you can charge the highest possible price for your home; and get it!
The most important thing to remember when renovating to resale is that the colors must be kept neutral. You’re appealing to someone else’s tastes, not your own. Neutral colors allow them to place their own stamp on the property and encourages them to buy it!
