A Guide To Improving Your Home Before Putting It Up For Sale

Selling a home is not as simple as it sounds. If you plan on selling your home, our guide on improving your home as well as other tips on what to do on the day of your potential buyer’s visit will be very useful.

Tidy Up Your Garden

Most buyers are asked to listen to their first impression and how they feel when they first saw a potential house, whether they plan on buying a house or renting it. This means your house’s first impression needs to absolutely wow your potential buyers. One of the easiest ways to do so is by tidying up the garden space and allowing them to “see” the splendor it has to offer. Not much of a gardener? Simply mow the lawn and tidy up the bushes.

See To All The Small Repairs

Leaking taps, loose floorboards and cracked windows can lower your home’s value significantly. Even if you’ve gotten used to living around them, your potential buyers will see it as extra work and extra expenses, making them reluctant to pay a high price for your home.

Give Your Home A Fresh Coat Of Paint

You may feel that since you are planning on selling your house, home painting Ipswich may be a waste of money. On the contrary, a simple coat of paint can not only make your home appear more presentable and appealing to your potential buyers, but it can also add to the value of your home. Wet walls especially need to be taken care of before your potential buyers arrive. 

Replace Bathroom Fixtures

Even if the rest of your home is not in the best of shape, try your best to make your bathrooms, especially those attached to the master rooms, more appealing to your buyers. The simplest way to do so is by replacing the bathroom fixtures. The shower, the tap in the bathroom vanity, and even the bathroom flush can be easily replaced.

Replace Light Fixtures

Like the bathroom fixtures, the light fixtures around the house too can be replaced if you want to give your home a less expensive updo. Make sure these are energy saving lights and fixtures that support them; making it more appealing to your buyers.

Wash The Windows And Throw Them Open

Sunlight plays a large part in making any space appear welcoming and spacious. Most potential buyers are looking for a well lit up home to avoid unnecessary energy consumption, or even simply because they prefer their homes this way. So wash those windows and make them shine! Even if you’re not a fan of open windows, throw them open when you are expecting potential buyers to drop in, encouraging air flow in your home.

Make Your Floors Shine Like Never Before!

Likewise, take the time to make your floors shine as well. Bring out that floor polishing machine, or at the very least, give it a good mopping to make it feel clean to the feet. It doesn’t matter at all if your potential buyers won’t is barefoot, they’ll definitely notice the floors.

Enhance The Smell Of Your Home

And last, enhance the aroma of your home. Apart from opening windows and allowing the air to flow through, consider spritzing a little air freshener around your home. If you’re a baker, consider baking buns or cookies in the oven just before they arrive, giving your entire home a delicious smell. If you’re not, then simply put a pan of water to boil, and add in a few drops of vanilla essence to it.
