Thinking of putting up your home on the market this season? If so, odds are you’re trying to figure out the best techniques to get plenty of motivated buyers — willing to pay more — fast. Your first step should be meeting with Lisa Ash from Team Homes by Ash. Lisa and the team have the experience and the know-how you need to reach the best buyer for your home.
Next, consider making renovations to your home. The right upgrades don’t have to cost a ton, and they can make a big difference when it comes to grabbing buyers’ attention.
Here are five great renovation tips you can use to resell your home for more - and more quickly when the market starts to cool down.
Start With the Basics
Before you can dive into aesthetic upgrades, you need to address any basic issues in your home before you put it on the market. Things like cracked windows or damaged walls can be a huge turn-off
for buyers. Bigger problemswill also affect your home’s selling price. If you don’t at least make basic repairs, you’re limiting yourself to people interested in flipping the property. This might get you a fast sale, but it’s not likely to land you with a substantial return on your investment.
Your façade is the first thing that potential
buyers will see, whether that’s on a drive past your property, coming in for a
tour, or as an online listing. That’s why investing some time and money in
landscaping can make such a big difference. Make sure your yard is neatly trimmed and free of any debris or
litter before any tour or open house. You should also plant seasonally appropriate
flowers in flowerbeds and make sure the space stays well-maintained throughout
the sale process.
or Replace Your Door
Another simple way to improve your curb appeal
is to give your front door a fresh coat of paint. The entryway to your home naturally
sees a lot of action and, as a result, can develop some normal wear and tear.
Fresh paint will give it a serious facelift without breaking the bank. However,
if your door has significant dings or damage, consider replacing it. After all, it’s the
very first impression buyers will get of the property itself — make sure it’s a
If you’re looking for a fast and low-cost way
to give your space a fresh look, consider replacing the hardware in
your home. New drawer pulls, faucets, and doorknobs can make a big difference
in a space. You can make older features look new and modern without breaking
the bank — plus, most hardware is easy to install yourself. Investigate home décor trends and make sure you pick hardware that creates a cohesive look
throughout your whole home.
Another important step
to take when selling a home is to stage your space properly. You need your home
to look as appealing as possibleto as many buyers as
possible, which means you need to decorate in a neutral, attractive style. Décor that’s too personal or stylized will turn buyers off and make them far
less likely to see themselves in your space. If you’re not sure how to best
stage your property, talk to Lisa for a referral to a tried and true professional home stager.
Finally, be sure to give your property a full
deep cleaning before you have photos taken or host an open house. Even if you
have experience cleaning, this is a job best left to the pros. A cleaning
service that specializes in real estatecan make all the
difference. When all the nooks and crannies look their best, your home is far
more likely to make an impression on buyers.
With these tips, you’ll have your home looking
FABULOUS and ready to hit the market.
These moves highlight all your property’s
best features. With the right agent by your side, you’ll find buyers who fully
appreciate them — and an offer to match. Don’t go it alone when it comes toselling your house.
