Selling your home must be done with careful consideration and planning. This is not just a simple deal you can conclude in a matter of minutes, but rather an important task you must pay due attention to. This is especially the case when selling your home occurs at the same time of moving into a new one. You will need extra money to equip the new place and turn it into the dwelling you desire.
That is why finding ways to boost the value of your home is so important. Long gone are the times when you could just put up an house for sale, hire a cleaning service and expect a buyer to fall in love with the place. When people are buying a new home, they are looking for quality and features that please them. So in order to make the best deal out of your home, you have to look into certain projects and see to it that you implement them. Every piece of advice that a real estate consultant ( Michael Tudorie) gives is aimed at making your home better in the eyes of the prospective buyer so that you can make more money:
- Curb appeal - starting from the outside of your home, you should look into ways of making your home more attractive. After all, first impressions are important and so are tasks like patio cleaning and maintenance. If you have a garden, know that it can add great value, but only if it is well looked after. This means making sure that there is not any clutter and that the place is clean.
- Interior paint - moving onto the interior of your home, it is time to look at the walls. What you need to consider is that keeping the tones and paint neutral goes a long way into winning a prospective buyer. One of the worst things you can do is leave wallpaper on the walls. Even if it is perfect shape, chances are that it will do more harm than good in terms of impression and so it is best to just remove it and introduce muted and neutral color - you cannot go wrong with white. Just remember to give your home a thorough domestic cleaning, as that is one project known to cause some mess.
- Upgrade your kitchen - one of the rooms that are most important to buyers is the kitchen. It is an area of the home that is visited daily and for this reason people want to have good design and modern features there. A complete remodel might be in order, if your kitchen is outdated and designed poorly. People will be willing to pay extra for a kitchen that is equipped with modern appliances and has convenient design. Do consider that everyone is after easy kitchen cleaning and convenience, so make sure you get that going when you renovate this part of your home.
- Upgrade your bathroom - another room that is of great importance to buyers is the bathroom. You can expect a good return of investment (ROI), if you take out of your resources to make the bathroom truly pleasing. Try to work with the space you have: it is better to have freedom to move around than take up everything with a large tub. Install new tiles, if the old ones are in bad shape and you will have yourself a room of your home that can truly boost its value.
Implementing each of these projects in your home goes a long way in making it more appealing to buyers on the Vancouver real estate market. Secure the best deal by implementing some or all of these projects.
