Choosing which home improvements to make can be a very tough decision; you want your home to look nice but you don’t want to spend a load of money on a house you’re not going to live in anymore. However you need to make your home more appealing and aesthetically pleasing to make it have that wow factor the potential buyer is looking for.
The first thing you need to think about is the exterior of your home. Flowers and bushes nice and pruned, weeds plucked and windows cleaned. The outside is the first thing any potential buyer will notice before they’ve even had a chance to step through the front door. Make your home has a welcome feeling. A fresh coat of paint on the front door can instantly spruce the exterior up. Maintain the lawn, this will maximise the space and make it look more appealing to the eye.
It’s not worth buying new carpets as the new tenants might decide they don’t like them and pull them up anyway. If your carpet is in good condition simply hire a professional carpet cleaner to freshen it up.
Kitchen & Bathroom
These need to look as modern and clear as possible, clean away anything unnecessary off the counters and shelves to emphasise maximum space and minimise clutter. Things like putting a new toilet seat on or hanging some new tea towels off the hangers will add that little something.
Your garage is an extra room so don’t shove everything in there because your potential buyer will want to see what it looks like and how big it is. A garage is a massive selling point to a house and can add value so make sure your garage doors look nice and is working correctly. The last thing you want is to open it for the potential buyer and find the hinges are broken; this will almost definitely put the potential buyer off if they think they’ll have a heap of work to do on the house before they move in.
The main thing to do is to make sure your home has good curb appeal; if the exterior of your home is not appealing to potential buyers then they’re not going to be interested in what’s inside.
