Preparing your Property for Sale
Money spent on upgrading the street appearance and the front entrance is the best investment you can make when preparing your house for sale. If you have a limited budget, spend it first on these two areas.
Buyers respond to homes that appear spacious, clean and well built with bright, airy, open rooms and a fresh atmosphere.
In general, minor improvements can greatly improve your chances of selling your house for the best price. On the other hand, costs associated with major improvements may not be recovered through a higher selling price. If money has to be spent, spend it on improving your kitchen and bathroom(s) as money spent on these areas will be more likely recouped in a higher sale price.
Bright lights and white walls make rooms look bigger.
If you are selling an empty house, seriously consider hiring furniture from a specialist “Home Staging” company. Skilled staff will come in with furniture and accessories that will promote your property to best advantage, add value, and show prospective buyers what they may be able to achieve.
Even if you are selling a furnished house, you may consider hiring a property stylist to maximise your existing décor.
