How to add value to your house before selling

Wondering about ways to make your listed home a dream house to prospective buyers? The best way to make that happen is to add value to your home.

Here are 6 simple improvements you can work on:

  1. Create a bigger space
  2. Informed homebuyers now look for open floor plans. Before you show your home, make sure that potential buyers find the flow of your home natural and inviting.

  3. Enhance curb appeal
  4. A home for sale should look instantly appealing. Every detail counts: the yard and the front door say a lot about what’s inside. You can apply a fresh coat of paint on your front door. Add pots of flowering plants near the doorway. Your house should appear welcoming.

  5. Keep your home clutter free
  6. Nothing impresses more than a clean home. While you’re at it, don’t neglect those nooks and crannies.

  7. Get your home inspected
  8. Make sure the house is in tip-top shape. We’re not just talking about appearance but the overall state of your home. Substance must match style. Fix what needs to be fixed and don’t miss the basics. Hire a professional home inspector to look over your home and unearth problematic areas that need fixing, from roof to wiring.

  9. Update and upgrade
  10. Check the latest trends in interior design and find out if certain items in your house are still appealing, making a comeback, or downright dated. Most of what needs upgrading are floors, kitchens, and bathrooms.

  11. Make a plan and don’t overdo it
  12. Know the weak and strong points of your property and make only the changes that are necessary… no more. Not having a plan can lead to impulsive and costly mistakes.
