Tips for Making Your Home More Marketable
At one time or another in life you are probably going to have to relocate and sell your home, no matter how much you love it. When this happens, you will want to know what you can do before you list your house or property for sale to make it more appealing to buyers.
Aside from getting your home ready to sell, you’re going to need a good reputable moving company to help you pack your belongings and safely transport them to your new home. Now might be a good time to start getting organized for your move.
Real estate is a highly competitive industry and residential properties need to look their best inside and out if when that For Sale sign goes up. For starters, you’re going to want your home to be immaculately clean and clutter free. Aside from this, there are other hacks that will help your home be more marketable:
Upgrading your kitchen and bathrooms with new countertops will help sell your home faster. If you have old, worn, outdated countertops it will make a world of difference if they are replaced with new, stylish countertops. This will add value to your home and make it much more appealing to buyers.
Paint, Stain or Refinish Decks, Walkways & Concrete Surfaces
Wooden decks and/or stained surfaces should be refinished prior to listing your home for sale. Concrete surfaces, like your patio and garage floor should also be thoroughly cleaned and refinished so that they look inviting to buyers when they arrive on an Open House or with their agent for a private showing.
Upgrade Light Fixtures
Take a good look at your light fixtures, both interior and exterior. If they look old and are showing signs of wear and tear, they should be replaced. A well-lit room with beautiful light fixtures makes a huge difference. To give your home curb appeal, the exterior lights should be upgraded in a style that blends with your architecture, while enhancing the entire look.
Replace Window Blinds
Many older homes had aluminum semi blinds installed in them. These have gone out of date so if you upgrade your blinds to something more modern and attractive like shutters, either faux wood or plantation, it can make a big difference.
Enhance Storage Space with Shelving
Homebuyers are always interested in having plenty of places to store things. By adding shelving to your basement, attic, garage and closets, you are enhancing your home. Take it up a notch by staining or painting the shelves so they look more attractive to prospective buyers.
Call Your Movers
With these tips you are bound to sell your home quickly, and once it’s in escrow you’ll need to call your moving company. They can come out and give you an estimate on taking care of your entire move, including packing up all your belongings.
