5 Ways to Get Your House to Sell Faster & For More

5 Ways to Get Your House to Sell Faster & For More!

1.)   Consider your curb appeal: Change out the front door or the garage door, maybe give them a fresh coat of paint to brighten them up at bit.Bring in some fresh mulch in the flower beds. Add some shrubs or plants to give some color to the yard. All of these things will help to draw buyers eyes to your property.

2.)   Make your home as move in ready as possible: Fresh neutral paint colors through out the home, changing out those outdated fixtures, making sure all the little things are taken care of before buyers look at your property all make it feel move in ready. Buyers are looking to move right in without hassle and projects before they walk in the door.

3.)   Consider expanding your home to the outside:  Adding a deck or patio is a valuable investment. It gives the buyer an alternative living space to enjoy. If you already have a deck or patio then stage it appropriately to make it feel like an outdoor living room. This makes them feel like they're getting more home for their money.

4.)   Take advantage of unfinished spaces: Turn a little nook under the stairs into a storage space complete with shelves or a closet organizer. Finish the empty attic space or basement to create another room for added possibilities.

5.)  The BEST return on your investment is ALWAYS going to be the kitchen: You don't always have to install new cabinets to update the kitchen. Put in new counter tops, an updated sink with a new faucet, and change the hardware on the cabinets to completely transform the look of a kitchen. New updated lighting and flooring will always catch the buyers eye.

Remember when updating or renovating your property to sell DON'T over do it. Installing extremely high end items in an average neighborhood will NEVER get you a good return on your investment. Always keep it simple and neutral so that you add value and appeal to everyone that will be looking to purchase your property. If you would like assistance in determining what improvements would be best for you and your home please give me a call or send me an email.
