You could be having a great house, an ideal design, and virtually a great beauty touch to it, but when it comes down to selling it, it rocks down low on the list.
How unfortunate? But well these thing happen, and come to think of it, not once but quite a number of times have I seen such down here in Australia.
The thing is that while the house could be great and with very ideal touches, it still misses out on the buying list because of very tiny factors that would surprise you if you found out.
In many occasions it could be because of that “small time” shower repairs that you chose to ignore or the cracked window pane that you brushed down as a quick fix.
Believe me, the buyers have also learned these tricks well, and in the event that you ignore any of them, it would be to your own peril.
But seriously speaking, would you go for the same house that has a constantly annoying squeaky sound, a cracked window pane, or a dripping shower?
Why then are you trying to force it on the other person? Trust me the property market has gone up the roof with stiff competition and if you doze a little, you could be pushed to the back of the pack with a simple tap on the finger.
So to up the value of your property before you sell it, and even stand a chance to make a kill, don’t just look at the big picture rather scan through the simple fixes that might arise too.
And while the actual costs of the fixes will vary depending on both the home’s condition and the property market their overall payback could be overwhelming. Here are a few that you could start with.
Start by giving your kitchen a facelift by making a few cosmetic changes. These could include painting the cabinet, swapping any outdated hardware, and changing a few appliances with the latest designs in the market.
Follow this by an extreme bathroom makeover. Remember that your bathroom is as important as the kitchen and the buyers will be paying close attention to it. So scrub a dingy shower to sparkle, or fix a leaking shower to stop the mess.
Again you will need to keep the home simple and ideal in terms of decoration. If possible even add another room in a week or two but don’t overdress the house, instead keep it warm and provide an outward facelift too.
This will ensure that when it’s time for evaluation you will not be disappointed. Your house will top the list and ideally flex with the best.
