Move Realty Wentworthville suggests Preparing Your Home for Sale
At Move Realty Wentworthville we work hard to ensure that our clients achieve the highest sale prices when selling their often most valuable and important asset. We understand the selling your house can be a stressful event and in order to help you we have prepared a few tips to maximise the value of your home.
Things to Consider
Before placing your house on the market, it is important to consider the other houses for sale in your locality, the overall condition of the housing market and needs and types of home buyers your home aims to satisfy. To gauge the condition of the market and the competition try visiting and viewing open houses and recently sold properties in your area. This will allow you to gauge the buyer interest and the different needs of buyers. Talking to Move Realty Sales Agent can significantly aid in your considerations. Our agents are highly trained in property sales and have extensive knowledge of the market and the needs of buyers. A chat with a Move Realty Sales Agent can significantly benefit you.
Improving Your Home
A simple way to increase the value of your property is to make a few minor repairs and upgrades to your house. Damaged paint or wall paper, carpet stains and leaky taps can leave a bad impression on buyers yet have simple and easy fixes.
Some major upgrades such as bathroom or kitchen upgrades can also raise the value of your property. Just make sure not to overspend and ensure that you are able to make your money back. A chat with a Move Realty Sales Agent can help prioritise important upgrades and can help ensure that the money spent can be made back during the sale, as Move Realty Sales Agents are highly trained to maximize the value of your property.
Consider First Impressions
A buyer’s first impression of your house can significantly impact their overall considerations of your property and consequently has a large effect on perceived value of your property. Buyers’ form their first impressions and opinions of your home based on what they have seen from the curb. Take a look at your own house from the curb and consider it appearance and your impression of it. Freshly cut lawns, a well-cared for garden or hedge, clean paintwork on the house exterior and water blasted concrete and fences make a huge difference and will make the buyer want to step inside.
Declutter and Clean
Many buyers think that a clean and tidy home is a well-cared for home. Considering the space you have in your home and how to make the most of it can help increase you properties appeal. Clutter and uncleanliness will only make the space you have feel small, whilst overshadowing the merits of your property.
• Consider hiring a storage unit to house all those objects that don’t have a place in your home
• Clean everything – from skirting boards to walls, taps and behind fridges
• Consider getting your carpet professionally cleaned
• Buyers will open your cupboards and closets too, so make sure you take time to look at these.
• Disassociate yourself from your house
Staging Your Home
Staging your home involves furnishing the home to appeal to a certain type of home buyer, such as families, first home buyers etc. This allows you to maximise the buyer interest and value for your property.
