Before proceeding with the sale of your home, the majority of property agents tend to take a good look at your property pointing out repairs necessary to make it look presentable. Since the first impression is lasting it is important to make certain when buyers come to tour your home, it is immaculate giving an impression of a home they can visualise themselves live in.
As a veteran property agent I am focusing on a few home improvement ideas which could help increase the value of your home, making it desirable to potential buyers.
Broken windows, leaky plumbing, faulty air conditioning and heating systems may spell disaster for the sale price of your home. Buyers keep in mind the cash they will have to spend on the renovation of a house and make adjustments in the home value accordingly. The greater the number of repairs the lower will be their final price offer.
Hence spending a few hundred dollars to upgrade the look of your home, and fix the basic necessities will gain you a lot more in the long run. Apart from the plumbing and wiring, it is a good idea to check the roofing and all other appliances in your home ensuring they are in a good working condition. These are small measures which will surprisingly give you amazing results when you set your home up for sale.
Space and Lightning Make a Difference:
Buyers prefer spacious and well aired homes. Doing away with non structural walls which add room to the living area and coming up with mobile kitchen islands can increase the space in your home. A house which is airy with ample lightning using dimmers to create an interesting effect is more sought after by buyers when compared to a cramped, dark home.
Pay Heed to the Flooring:
Flooring makes a world of difference and with a few amendments you can get rid of squeaky or damaged floor boards, broken tiles and if required removing the wall to wall carpeting could add to the look of your house. However, at times the floors are in such a shabby condition that it is better to get a new floor rather than try to renovate what you have.
It is crucial to keep in mind that badly damaged floors can result in a substantial decrease in the value of your home. New flooring will be expensive but you will be able to make up for your expenses with better offers for your property.
Property agents are adept at giving suggestions about creating spaces and renovating homes according to your budget. For further assistance ask your property agents when you interview them for their professional evaluation about the state of your home and make sure to carry out the essential maintenance to enhance the value of your property.
