If you have lived in your home for some time, you might be thinking about a future sale. You’ll need to consider what you need to do to get your home sale-ready. You can increase the value, make necessary repairs and make your house look more presentable. There are a couple different ways you can do this, but you should always start with repairs.
Some problems a homeowner will just live with. For instance, a small hole in your roof leading to the attic might not bother you if you don’t go up there at all. Or, you might not worry about your garden flooding due to poor drainage, in heavy rain. But these things are going to put a potential buyer off making an offer on your home. At the very least these issues are going to reduce what they are willing to pay.
For that reason, you might want to consider making changes. Poor drainage in the garden is caused by high water table near your home, usually under your garden. This can be above the level of your basement, and this could easily cause indoor flooding. But any good landscaper can recommend a few different high water table solutions. One of them is certain to match your needs. Remember, that perception when selling a home is everything. You can’t sell your home as the perfect place to raise the kids with a flooded garden.
Thinking about improving the perception people have of your home? You’ll be pleased to know there are lots of little things that you can do that won’t cost anything. When thinking about improving the interior, remember to decrease the clutter. This will make rooms look grander and less cramped. As well as this you can consider repainting the walls brighter colours. Cream is the perfect shade because it allows buyers to imagine how they might choose to repaint the home once they buy it. Remember, a homebuyer is looking for a space but they might be encouraged by your stylistic choices.
It’s not just about the inside of the home, though. You also want to work on improving the exterior. For instance a couple years ago a reviewed some beautiful home address plaques. These are sure to give your house a touch more character and make it stand out from the rest on sale in the area. You may also want to consider adding little improvements to the home architecture. You could, for instance, add a canopy over your front door, giving a touch of extra style.
If you’re thinking about how to dramatically improve the value of your home, conversions are the best solution. An attic converted into one, big upstairs room can add as much as twenty-five percent on to the overall home value. You won’t need to complete the process yourself as there are companies that specialise in this type of renovation. When you are finished, you might find you don’t want to move after all.
Take my advice and I guarantee your home will be the perfection condition for a future sale.
