Whenever you plan on putting your home for sale it is always a good idea to maximize the equity value of the property. Remodeling or renovating on a large scale is not always a good idea as it can eat into your investment.
There are a few inexpensive tips that you can use to better the look of your house to increase its market value:
- Giving the kitchen a makeover: the kitchen is the most used room of any house. It goes through a lot of wear and tear as compared to lesser used rooms. It can be very expensive to re do the entire kitchen from scratch, but instead a few touch ups can give it a facelift. Instead of changing all the cabinets the shutters can be repainted a different vibrant color to change the look of the kitchen space. Swapping old hardware with new ones can also give a modern look to the kitchen. Removing extra clutter from the kitchen area can also make it look fresh.
- Bathroom: potential buyers always check the bathroom for signs of leakage or mould. A fresh smelling bathroom that is clean adds to the value of any home. A thorough cleaning and scrubbing of the tiles in the bath area and the sink can make the bathroom look clean. Adding bathroom mats, fresh towels, pot pourri can instantly transform the bathroom.
- De clutter: clearing up all open spaces in the house makes the house look bigger than it really is. A clean, clear open floor plan can also help the potential buyer visualize the final look of the house.
- Light: poor and old fashioned looking light fixtures can easily dull an otherwise nice looking home. It is very important to present your home in the best possible light, accentuating and highlighting the houses USP.
