As the market continues to property boom you may feel like you don’t need to make as much effort when showcasing your home. We are starting to see more properties enter the market so right now, it’s even more important to make your house stand out from the rest. Improving the value of one’s property is a very broad concept and could very well involve a list that’s three pages long. A simple way would be to look at your property from three perspectives: it’s external value, internal value, and upgrades to existing infrastructure.
First impressions last. And how your property looks via the curb will determine the range of value long before people see what’s inside. For this, you should be conscious of your environment and work with it to boost the appeal of your property. There is a growing trend towards this mindset, and being able to see lush gardens, manicured lawns, gardens mulched etc will attract many buyers.
Once you step into the house, people will want to feel at home and comfortable. You can achieve this, primarily by making the most of your space via decluttering and organisation. Adding more storage and clearing more open space will provide the breathing room people are looking for. People like it when what they see is what they get, and that means everything is neatly in sight. Make sure things aren’t simply stacked or layered out everywhere, and that things like cables are properly organised.
Lastly, make sure everything is up to date. Prioritize any pending repairs, cracks or refurbishments, because no potential buyer wants these passed onto them. This includes paint, insulation, and utilities. Make sure there is enough lighting around the property, and in keeping with the trends mentioned above, aim for sustainability upgrades if you can. Most important of all, do a deep clean of everything. If they like what they see, they’re more likely to buy.
