How do you get the most you can for your most valuable asset?
When it comes to selling your home, you want to do everything in your power to get the highest selling price you can for it. It’s likely to be your most valuable asset, and you’ve worked for it.
This doesn’t mean you need to do a complete overhaul on your home – and you shouldn’t. Undertaking major work may end up costing more than the value it adds.
Spruce Up Your Yard
Your home’s curb appeal plays a major role in its value. Make sure your lawn is looking its best, trim your trees and plant a few flowers.
Don’t go too overboard, though; prospective buyers don’t want to think about all the yard work that will be involved. The plants you choose should look great but be easy to care for.
Apply a Fresh Coat of Paint
New paint is the quickest way to give your home a facelift and make it feel like new. You don’t need to do the entire house, but look out for any areas that are worn, peeling or stained.
Try to keep the overall look as consistent as possible so that no area looks significantly better than any others.
Upgrade Your Fixtures
New fixtures, like doorknobs, cabinet pulls and faucets can transform your kitchen and bathrooms.
Remember that you will no longer be living in the house, so there’s no need to go for the most expensive options. Choose something that looks nice and fresh but that doesn’t break the bank.
Clean Your Carpets
This is something that you should entrust to the professionals. The last thing you want your prospective buyers to see is the areas of wear and tear leading up and down every hallway.
Professional carpet cleaners can restore your carpets to their former glory so that they almost look like they have never been walked on.
