You want to sell a house quickly and profitably. How to interest a potential buyer, increase the market value of sold housing and thereby accelerate the sale?
First of all, inspect the house and the plot and make a list of what needs to be changed and repaired. Of course, this list should be correlated with your budget. You should remember that if you have no opportunity to do serious repairs, then it is better not to start it, but you need to concentrate on what you can do in such a situation.
First of all, inspect the adjacent area, because it is evident when you approach the house and creates a first impression of it. If you can manage on your own, put in order flowerbeds, lawns, bushes and trees. Remove the fallen last year’s branches and foliage, trim the bushes, thin out unnecessarily thick shoots. Bear in mind that a small amount of evergreen plants will make your site more alive at any time of the year. Of course, you can use the services of a professional landscape designer.
You also should clean the house inside. Remove excess and old furniture, paint dresser, put the carpet. This will allow you to increase the space visually. Cases for storage of winter things, as well as random boxes or boxes that you used as temporary storage systems, should also be removed for the period of sale.
Be sure to involve specialists – electrician, plumber, painter, carpenter and employees of the cleaning company while doing repairs. The painter will refresh the walls and ceilings inside and outside the house, which will undoubtedly make your home more attractive to buyers. No need to say that a house that sparkles clean will significantly increase the price.
Perhaps your house has a good design both outside and inside. But do not overestimate yourself. Invite a professional designer who will help you correct the shortcomings of your interior and transform the atmosphere of your house in fairly simple and inexpensive ways: change the color of walls, update wallpaper and upholstery in some places, rearrange furniture, remove unnecessary accessories or replace them with more suitable and modern ones. You have to understand one simple truth: everything that makes your house individual and attractive for you may not be appropriate for potential customers at all. In other words, your collections of magnets on the fridge or addictions, for example, to pink or bright blue can reduce the buyer’s interest, so you need to make the interior as neutral as possible.
The best time to sell your house is the late spring, summer and early fall. The more time you have for pre-sale, the better. For example, planting ground cover plants or planting lawn grass in the fall, you will have a better chance of getting a more attractive yard and garden by spring.
Practice shows that even a small amount of money invested in the renovation of the interior and exterior of the house turns into a direct profit and a reduction in the timing of sales. We hope our pieces of advice will help sell your home successfully.
