Declutter Your House To Increase Its Value
The UK property market is more competitive than ever so it is important that you do all that you can to add value to your property when you come to sell it. We have put together some top tips that could help you add a few extra pounds to the value of your home!
Have a ‘spring’ clean
Clear out all of your unwanted goods and de-clutter before arranging viewings. Potential buyers viewing your property want to see all of the space available to them. If you remove larger, bulky items of furniture or tidy that messy cupboard that you don’t want anyone to see, you could find that you receive a higher offer than you expected. Remember Currie Easy Self Storage can help you store some of your things if needed!
Leave plenty of time to renovate your property before it goes on the market. Painting, decorating and fixing any damaged bits all take time. Not to mention moving and storing your belongings while the renovations take place. Getting this all done before any viewing take place is important so that your potential buyers can see your home looking its very best.
When decorating with the view to selling be sensible when choosing your colours. Prospective buyers want to be able to imagine themselves living there, so neutral colours are always good for creating a blank canvas effect. Darker colours can often be difficult to paint over and can make rooms appear smaller than what they actually are, so think light and bright to entice buyers into making their bid!
Something so simple could make a massive difference to the price of your property. Strategically placed mirrors can make a room seem bigger and lighter. Removing a door or a sofa can really show off the space available. These minor edits to your home won’t take too long to do and could really enhance its appeal.
The outside is as important as the inside
As soon as the estate agent puts a ‘for sale’ sign outside your home it instantly becomes an advert for your property. The exterior is people’s first impression and can be the difference between them booking a viewing or looking elsewhere. So give it a lick of paint, cut the grass or simply update the door handle. Make that first impression count!
