These are the 7 Changes that can add value to your homes

1. Stage Your Home to draw Buyer’s attention

Home staging refers to preparing your home to sell so it appeals to the most potential buyers who will pay the highest possible price. Relative to the amount of time and money involved, staging may be one of the most lucrative projects you ever undertake. The living room, kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms, and outdoor living spaces are all important areas to focus on when staging your home. Staging a home increases the offer price by between 1% and 5%, compared to other similar homes on the market that aren’t staged.

2. Let’s Paint it up

Applying a few coats of fresh paint (to both the exterior and interior of your home) is an easy and inexpensive way to increase your property values. Paint not only gives your home an attractive and clean look, but it also helps protect your home from wear and tear too.

3. Clean Up the Exterior

Both realtors agree that curb appeal is very important. After all, the exterior of your home will be the first thing that prospective buyers see – and you know the old adage about only getting one chance to make a first impression.

Again, it is not necessary to go over the top. It is always recommended to do a good yard clean-up; one can do it themself or hire a landscaper. Trim the hedges so that everything looks tidy and clean.

4. Use Easy DIY Planters to make it look greener

You can never go wrong with natural beauty. Plants and bonsai enhance the beauty of your homes. Keeping the décor classic will improve overall value.Adding greens to your home is the easiest way to change the look or enhance your interiors.

5. Stay on top of maintenance.

It is evident that a fresh coat of paint and really cleaning your house, making sure windows and baseboards are clean, and decluttering can increase the value of your home and give a good impression to the buyers that it has been maintained well. Upgrading vanities, fixtures, faucets and even lighting can leave a good impression on the buyer.

6. Make the most of your space.

While you’re at it, rearrange the furniture so your home looks inviting and so buyers can move through your home without bumping into anything. If necessary, put bulky items in storage. A crowded room looks like a small room. By grouping things together you will be able to create areas of decluttered space so that the area looks larger and that there is more room for the new renter or owner to bring their things to the home. Simplifying areas and bringing a spacious feel is the goal not overcrowded and stuffed.

7. Try to opt a minimalistic style of living if you are planning to vacate

The home needs to feel as fresh and clean as possible. Removing patterns and some of the out of trend colours could help because they can seem old fashioned or jarring to people who like modern and stylish decor. Removing items that are personal such as family photos, children’s art from the fridge and in the study.  This allows a person to imagine themselves in space more easily. Removing items that are distracting for a person can help them to imagine their life being in space. Don’t forget the stuff you have in cupboards and drawers. If someone opens these spaces and finds that they are chocked full they may think that there is not a lot of storage and start to question if the home is too small for all their belongings.
