Doing up your home for sale

27 February 2012 | Helpful tips and hints

So you’re thinking of selling your home and you’ve decided that you need to do a few minor renovations to brighten up the place and make even more enticing to buyers. Anything to get the right price, right? Apart from the smell of freshly baked cookies, a clutter free home and some lovely throws and cushions, you can really give your home a lift through some simple touches such as window dressings and floors.

We’re not all property moguls and it’s a fact that most of us generally need to sell our own home first to be able to have enough of a budget to afford the new home.  In a perfect world, it would be great if you can simply buy when you want but what can you do?  The only thing you can do is beautify our home to an extent that the prospective buyers will automatically see how well-maintained it is.  Just what kind of home improvement tricks can you do to make your home attractive to prospective buyers?

When you redecorate, it doesn’t have to be over the top. Consider starting with some brand new window dressings to brighten up the room.  Not only is it cost effective, but there are so many options and combinations to fiddle with to get the right touch.  A good color scheme in a room can really impress prospective buyers.  Window blinds are an easy addition to a room.  They come in a number of available textures, colors and designs, are easy to clean and easy to install.

Now you’ve chosen your window dressings, you may also want to consider redoing your floors too.  Flooring is often overlooked when you’re living in your home but some people really take a look at the floor of the house when they’re buying.  If you already have hardwood floors, you may need to re-finish them to give them that special veneer and extra protection.  Carpet and HDF flooring are both easy to install and if the new owners want to redo them, it’s not painstaking to remove and replace either.  The important thing is, a home will be much easier to sell if the buyers think that they’re getting a deal on it because of the price and value of the home, but also because they don’t think they need to spend more on the house than what they’ve already bought it.

Your house will look so rejuvenated and refreshed you’ll wonder why you didn’t do it before!

Until next week.
