Often clients ask me for some simple tips on what they can do to increase the value of their property especially if they are selling.
I have asked Vik from Vas Global Real Estate to answer the above question.
Here are Viks 3 tips
Buyers are looking for space when they buy.
Buyers want to see space when looking for a home. So if you are selling you want to show space. Some practical tips to increase space are get rid of unnecessary furniture, clean the house, declutter. If you have to hire a storage unit for a couple of weeks then do so as this will increase the price a buyer is willing to pay. The key is to show more space!
Lighting is one of the most underestimated aspect when selling. Buyers love lighting. Try and increase the lighting in your home. If you have natural light coming in ensure that nothing is in the way to stop it. Clean up any large windows, if you have a big tree that is blocking the light, trim it. If you don’t have a lot of natural light coming in, put some downlights/LED lights. This small cost to do will return a lot more when selling.
First impressions are so important when selling. When buyers come to see your house, the first thing they see is the front yard. So make it look impeccable. Clean the front yard, mow the lawns, pull the weeds out, prune the plants. First impressions last!
The above 3 will help you increase the value of your home if you are planning on selling regardless of the market.
