Regardless of what is driving you into selling your home, you need first to convince customers to purchase it. Potential buyers will only consider your property if you boost its value.
- Do a floor refinishing
Consider replacing your current floor with a classic choice of wood such as oak. Rusty floors with signs of termite or rot infestation are a turnoff to potential clients.
- Consider changing your energy systems to be more technology-oriented
The current generation of homebuyers is looking for technology upgrades for energy security and efficiency. Use the recently innovated smart thermostats, energy saving lighting, and door locks that can be operated by Smartphone apps. These gadgets have been found to save up to 10% of annual energy costs.
- Redo the kitchen surfaces
A kitchen is the heart of a home and will be either the selling point of your home or the cause of its rejection in the market. Kitchen remodeling costs approximately $20,000, which you can sacrifice for the greater good. Also, you can redo just the neediest parts such as cabinets, rusted steel appliances, floors, discolored sinks, and countertops.
- The front door appearance
The landscaping in your front door makes the face of your home. If it is haphazardly done, the customers will turn back at the gate before checking out your property. Use modern, materials and a fresh color theme to replace outdated entry ways.
Other key areas that may need retouch include the bathrooms and their drainages, bedroom wardrobes, door knobs, and vanities. Re-caulk your tub before reselling the home for more customer appeal.
