5 Tips To Make Your Home More Profitable
1. Reduce Clutter
Whether it’s been a few years or 30 years of memories, it’s easy to get comfortable with not putting away various items we use on a daily basis. Store small kitchen appliances behind closed cabinets and dispose of unread magazines and other clutter. This will instantly make a home feel cleaner and open to future possibilities.
2. Neutral is Appealing to Home Buyers
Staging a home makes it easier for buyers to envision their family making memories in the space. Critique the rooms in your home and then conquer easy projects that entail a small investment. This will make the home appealing to a wider base of people looking to buy a new home. Your home has your style, but new homeowners will have their own preferences. For example, that red wall in your living room aligns with your tastes. However, a neutral color gives potential home buyers a blank canvas.
3. Enhance Curb Appeal
Just as you judge a book by its cover, prospective home buyers judge your home’s outdoor appearance. When preparing the exterior, make sure there’s a welcoming front door and recently manicured landscaping. Rent a pressure washer to clean the exterior. It will give the appearance of an almost freshly painted home with much less expense. This helps improve the curb appeal for your listing’s pictures, as well as for drive-bys.
4. Scrub & Deodorize
Fido has been a great addition to your family, but pet smells and other odors should be eliminated. Review your bathrooms by checking surfaces for mildew and cleanliness issues which could turn away a home buyer.
5. Fix Problem Areas
Cracks in walls, floors or ceilings are an instant red flag to buyers. These type of problems are typically related to foundation issues. And that will most likely be discovered during a home inspection. So, instead of doing a quick fix, look at having the issue corrected for the long term. Taking the time to fix the problem now is very helpful if you are looking for a quick sale.
