There comes a time in your life where you need to make the decision to sell your house. You might wish to move to a bigger property, for example. Or you could be emigrating to sunnier climes and have no wish to own any property here.
Whatever your reason for selling, it’s obvious you will wish to seek the greatest amount of money possible for your house. Even if two identical houses are for sale, one might fetch a higher price because of some subtle differences.
And, sometimes, it’s those little changes to a home that can increase the sale price! So, if you want to get as much money as possible for your house sale, the following tips will show you how.
Sell any unwanted furniture and other items
Before you put your home on the market, it’s important you de-clutter every room. Everyone has junk in their properties to some degree.
Selling off your unwanted furniture and other items will benefit you in two ways. First, it means there are fewer things to take with you when you move to your new home. And that means you’ll pay less for moving costs. Second, you’ll earn some extra cash so that you can pay for those moving fees!
There is also a third benefit. Let’s say you have got some prospective buyers viewing your home soon. They are more likely to visualise it with their furniture inside if there are few items of furniture and “stuff” in each room.
Give your rooms a mini makeover
After a few years, the interior decor of each room in your home will look tired and tatty. One way to boost interest in your house is to give each room a mini makeover! In other words, doing things like painting the walls and ceilings, and replacing any worn carpets.
I also suggest reviving your bathroom too. It’s likely there is some mould in yours, so you should treat it and then paint the mouldy ceiling and walls. You should also use some tile grout reviver too for the same reason (i.e. mould).
Of course, creating a nice bathroom is one thing but why not have some fun with these 100 things other people do in the bathroom! After all; preparing a house for sale doesn’t have to be a boring exercise!
Line up a new property before you advertise your house for sale
One of the biggest downers of any house sale is when there is a “chain.” You can make your property more marketable by moving out of it before it goes up for sale. That way, there is less hassle for your potential buyers. And, you’ll both be able to exchange contracts sooner rather than later.
Of course, not everyone can buy their new home without selling their existing one first. However, if you can make it happen, I recommend you doing so if you want a quicker sale!
Well, I hope those tips will help you sell your home sooner. Good luck!
