Are you prepared to sell your home? Boosting your home’s resale value makes the difference between a prospering sell and disappointing experience. Doing just a bit of mental legwork can help you plan a thorough plan to improve your home’s appearance.
Observe your home from an objective perspective and ask friends and family to offer an honest assessment of your house. By gaining as much feedback as possible you can find points which need improvement. Move your ego to the side. Be open to honest, objective feedback.
Focus on 1 Room at a Time
Resist any urge to tackle your entire home at once. Sure you want to improve your house with unbridled positive energy but rushing ahead divides your focus, energy and effectiveness. Keep your projects simple. Knock down walls or paint a single room to create order in your mind and your plans. List out individual projects which fit within reasonable time frames.
Making tiny, seemingly small improvements adds to the overall value of your home on a steady, incremental basis.
Don’t Overlook Tiny Improvements
Each little detail you note increases your home’s value. Much of what you do hinges on changing the perception of your home. The new shades, new paint job on your window frames and new kitchen sink all change the overall presentation of your home. As the presentation changes you’re able to demand a higher asking price. Making small upgrades or tiny improvements changes the quality of your home. Boost your home’s resale value by paying strict attention to small details.
Create an enticing, welcoming environment by cleaning your home. Think about your visceral reaction to unclean, sloppy, dilapidated homes. You’re likely to ignore these homes outright or form a negative perception of a dirty, unkempt dwelling. Clean, neat homes grab your attention and can command maximum resale value. Be all over maintenance issues, spot potential issues with your home and hit grime and dirt early before it builds up and creates an unsightly appearance. Mold becomes a serious problem in your house if you don’t keep current with cleanings. Think also about your home. Homes free of dust and dirt allow you to breathe easier.
Don’t Forget Curb Appeal
Many potential homeowners form an opinion of your home based on its appearance from the street. You likely have a split second to make an impression on passing traffic. If you want to attract new home buyers you have to make a quick impact with serious curb appeal. Look at your home from an objective basis. Observe how your house appears when driving or walking by.
Your house needs to look welcoming and enticing. Accentuate your lawn and overall landscaping by hiring professional help to spruce up your shrubs and flowers. How does your walkway look? Can you improve it by adding a nice little row of flowers beside the path? Assess everything from your home front, to your garage, to any trees located on your front property to improve your home’s curb appeal.
