5 Home Selling Tips for a Hot Spring Market
Wednesday May 11th, 2016
You want buyers to walk through your house and feel like it's their home, and things like a cluttered wall of family portraits are guaranteed to prevent buyers from emotionally placing themselves in your home.
Strong colours on the walls or wild wallpaper make it hard for buyers to imagine their furniture in your house. Consider repainting your home in neutral colours that will enhance a room's size and look more inviting.
Next to painting your home, cleaning your home is the most cost-effective way to increase your home's appeal.
You don't need to spend a fortune to make a big difference. Replace old window coverings with new draperies, add mirrors on the wall to help rooms feel more spacious and don't forget the outside of your home because curb appeal is the best way to make a great first impression.
Cost of Improvements vs. Potential Return:
Don't get so carried away with prepping your home that you forget why you're doing this - to get more money! You need to consider two things before making any improvements. Will this make my home more desirable to buyers? Will this increase the value of my home more than it costs me to do it?
