Buying and selling a home is actually one of the most stressful things anyone can do. There is so much to think about and consider. Legal paperwork and deeds, the exchanging of large amounts of money, having the financial backing in terms of mortgage agreements and actually the physical act of moving from one place to another. It is exhausting from start to finish let me tell you. But selling your home is where you can make the most impact in terms of the money side of things. Your home has a value, a value that you may have invested into, or perhaps you want to increase by making some necessary changes before the board goes up and a sale is agreed. I wanted to share with you some of the ways you can make the most of the sale of your property.
Make some key changes to rooms that will impact the value
One of the first things you could consider doing would be to make some changes to the rooms in your home that will have the most impact in terms of the value. That means the kitchen and the bathroom. These two rooms are considered some of the most expensive jobs you can partake in with your home, and even though you may feel like you are having to invest, the value far outweighs the investment in terms of what people are prepared to pay to avoid the bills and the mess themselves. Even if you make smaller changes to these rooms it can still make a big difference.
Decorate your home more neutrally
The next thing to think about would be the decoration of your home. We can all decorate our homes to our tastes, but that may not sit right with people who are potentially wanting to buy your home. Many people like to be able to put their won stamp on a place which means if you’d decorate your home in neutral colours they can easily see where their items will fit and what they can do to make it feel home to them. Without feeling like they have so much to do.
Declutter your home
Clutter can make a home appear untidy, so you may want to rethink how you present your home when you are putting it up for sale. This means decluttering some of the living spaces. This could also be doing you a favour for the move as you will only be taking with you the things you want, need and love. Any items that are worth selling could be done online on platforms like eBay and the extra money raised could always come in handy towards moving costs.
Do research to find the right agent
Once your home is ready for sale you now need to look into the agent you want to list it with. There are costs involved for selling your property so making the right decision on this is crucial. Websites and articles such as Kayabee – estate agent comparisons can take away all of the hard work and help you to find the right agent for you. All agents offer different services for different fees and meeting with them directly will also help you to form an opinion on what would be best for you and the sales process.
Take decent pictures of the property for the internet advertisements
Pictures matter. We can all be guilty of looking at homes online and taking into account the pictures we see, and what we see will determine whether we physically view or not. Decent pictures need to be clear and show you home in the best possible light. Try different angles and don’t be afraid to share your thoughts and opinions with the agent taking the pictures. After all, you want to be able to sell your home.
Don’t be too hasty with the price
Finally, don’t be too hasty to put it up at a cheap price. Sure advertising low could give you a quick sale, but it could also give off the wrong impression such as there might be something wrong with it hence the bargain price. Be realistic with your price and seek out valuations and come to happy medium. Most potential buyers will want to chip you on the price anyway, so don’t do yourself out of potential money just because you think a quick sale could be had. If someone wants your property they will buy it.
I hope that these tips help you when it comes to making the most of the sale of your property.
