Your home in all likelihood has served you well over the years and there is a reason that you decided to buy this property over the large numbers of other houses and apartments that you viewed. And these are exactly the same features that will attract (and sometimes repel) buyers into registering their interest when it comes to selling your home.
Whatever the reason, there will come a day when either you want to or because of a change in circumstances need to move into an alternative property. Perhaps you find that the house you are living in now no longer reflects your lifestyle, such as not having a large enough garden, or even that you and your partner are either planning for or expecting to have children at some stage in the near future and your current house will not be able to cope with the new space requirements.
When it comes to buying your next property, you will want to ensure that you have a wide of a margin as humanly possible to have in order to not only give you a wider selection in terms of the size and types of property that you can afford, but also to absorb any additional costs associated with both the move such as estate agent and legal fees in order to finalize the sale and keep in all within the confines of the law and to replace and income lost to the process, such as moving in and the time taken to organize the sale itself. So when you sell your house there will be a certain amount of work that you will need to complete in order to push that first offer above market value, how do you do that? This post will be helpful by tackling a few t things that you can do to help improve your prospects on the open market, so keep reading.
Get your front garden spruced up
Okay so in most people’s minds, the very first sight of a property that they have shown interest in will be what they base their future opinions on and more often than not it is practically impossible to shift this initial impression of your home. There are many different factors that will make up this first impression however, you can see your garden as being some kind of giant welcome mat for the prospective buyers, more often than not, if you have a tidy, clean, organized and well-kept garden at the front of the house then they are far more likely to form a positive impression of your house as a whole and are far more likely to take it seriously as a contender for their new home. Having tufts of patchy and discolored grass and messy un-bordered flowerbeds full of weeds will, on the other hand, make them imagine what kinds of other things are you neglecting?
So make sure that they don’t have the chance to form that negative impression and get some professional gardeners around to completely overhaul the yard if completely necessary, the kinds of things that you need to think about is how your lawn works with the borders of your garden and the fencing that you hopefully are considering installing. Front lawn fences actually help you to frame the grass on the yard making it appear as though it is perfectly manicured and overall much more organized than before. Also consider either reseeding your lawn or having some real turf installed to make you lawn itself to look as healthy and inviting as possible.
Repaint problem rooms
So there are always going to be spots in your home that you like less than others, and then there are areas of your home that to be quite frank are a disgrace to the rest of the house. More often than not, we will tolerate this due to the inconvenience and expense of having it fixed in a day to day situation, and there is no shame in that, however selling your home is a totally different ball game and you’re really need to consider having those ”turn off” points resolved before you start showing around prospective buyers. The way to do this is to get some painters in to apply a new coat and hide all of those blemishes and worn patches on the existing paintwork.
