When people are looking to buy a house, they tend to buy into a lifestyle so show your home life at its best. A lick of paint is always a great first idea, but don’t fall into the trap of painting everything white. Instead add a pop of colour to show personality or play it safe in the region of neutral colours which are known to best attract potential buyers. You might not want to hear it but you need to forget about your personal attachment as that quirky wallpaper you may love, may put others off. It’s all about balance!
Next consider your curb appeal. More than 68% of homeowners say curb appeal was important to them so make sure to focus on tidying the garden, repainting doors and windows and clearing the driveway. Buyers these days are looking for outdoor space so now more than ever it’s important to get rid of those weeds, fertilise to add life to tired grass and even add some outdoor decorations.
Have you thought about adding value to your home to increase the sale price? It’s been found that a 4-bedroom home with an ensuite to the master bedroom is worth £10,000 more than one without. And that houses with extensions or loft conversions can add 23% to its total value. A cheaper alternative to consider is by investing in double glazing. The benefits this brings is that they’re more energy efficient, keep noise out and are easier to maintain. However, be mindful that if you have a period property, original windows can increase the value so do your research!
