Buying a home is one of the biggest and most important investments we make in our lives and while it may seem like we’ve found the perfect spot to settle down, most of us end up mobbing and needing to sell at some future point. Whether it’s because of a career change or something family related, there are a lot of reasons we might need to pack up and leave.
For a lot of people selling their home can be as daunting as seeking one to but the tips in this guide are an easy way to boost the resell value of your property. Let’s take a look at some of them.
Be clever with your landscaping
The front yard is the first impression that potential buyers will experience of your home and this is where the hearts are captured. If you can make them fall in love with the house’s façade they will be much easier to convince when they see the rest of the home.
It’s crucial to make sure your yard is trimmed, mowed and free of weeds and natural debris like sticks and tree branches. Don’t spend big on renovating the backyard with big inclusions like a hot tub or pool as this can signal a lot more maintenance for potential buyers.
While it’s important to make sure your home hasn’t been reclaimed by nature, it’s equally important that the home doesn’t feel sterile and artificial. A well maintained garden and some naturally occurring trees are always impressive features to have that make people feel like it is a really down to earth place they can feel cosy in.
Update the front door
While it may not seem like it, the front door or entryway of your home plays a huge role in its overall resell value. Statistics show that updating an old front door with a modern one has had one of the biggest turnarounds in resell value of any bit of home improvement.
Renovate the kitchen and bathrooms
The kitchens and bathrooms in a home are the quickest rooms to become outdated simply because of how quickly design trends change. If your kitchen or bathroom is 10 or more years old it might be time for a modern refurbishing that will wow home buyers.
The kitchen is one of the most functional rooms in the house and had been a make or break room for lots of home buyers. Making a good impression in the kitchen can be enough to sway people to buying, especially those who really love home cooking.
