Getting Your House Prepared For The Market

by Maxine Smyth

Buying, selling, loading, and traveling locally or interstate is at the top of the list of “stuff that stress you out!” Every seller wants their home to sell quickly for a large profit, but it takes more than luck to make this possible. It entails meticulous preparation and learning how to professionally prepare your home to entice customers to take out their checkbooks. When selling your home, presenting it in the best way possible will increase the odds of obtaining a high sale price. You may need to take a step back and look at your home from the eyes of another. Any home has the chance to look its best and appeal to the prospective consumer market through an open house. A squeaky clean, well-kept, and obviously cared for home is available for sale. Many homes are bought based on the buyer’s initial emotional reaction, so investing in some major greases before going to market might pay off. Keep an eye out for showers, bathrooms, and other damp areas and facilities. A clean cupboard is often essential for doors, cupboards, and fittings. You should suggest cleaning or replacing the tapestries and window panels, as well as changing the paint if necessary. On our planning your home for sale guide, here are some recommended moves to take.

 

Do-it-yourself

Pay someone to do the necessary tasks for you! You may believe that doing a few jobs yourself would save you money, but a DIY miss would cost you a lot of money. When it comes to DIY, it is important to understand the limitations.
If you are eligible, it is important to delegate jobs such as electrical, plumbing, and structural work to professionals. Often have at least three quotes, but keep in mind that cheaper does not always mean better. Also, get references and ratings from previous customers.

 

 

Do Some Spring Cleaning

It might seem obvious, but a spotless home might inspire potential customers to focus on the future life they may have in house, rather than the mouldy bathroom ceiling. When you look at other houses on the market, you will see that they have been decluttered, professionally washed, and maybe even painted to appear fresh and pristine. While you might possibly do this yourself on a Sunday morning, we strongly advise you to consider hiring professionals, particularly if your home is large and you lack the time and resources. Washing the windows inside and out, as well as hidden areas like under the sink, helps the house seem well-kept. This gives the customer the subliminal impression that the house has been well-maintained and that there should be no hidden problems. In the bathrooms, hang up clean towels and leave the toilet lid closed. Vacuum floors and polish furniture as much as possible to ensure that all of the hard work and cleanliness is preserved.

 

Clean up Outside

Appeal on the street! This is the first thing a potential buyer can encounter. Clean up the gardens and trim back overgrown trees and bushes away from the house and walls. This will also serve to brighten the interior of the building by allowing more natural light in. Having a professional coming in on a regular basis to prune, maintain, and remove debris can relieve a lot of stress, particularly if you have a big, well-established garden. Clean the exterior of your home, including the window cleaning, the eaves, and don’t overlook any paths or stepping stones that lead through your house, yard, or out to the washing line or garden shed.  It should be cleaned and tidied up, with dirt and cobwebs out.

The Kitchen

Kitchens are a fantastic selling point for many shoppers, so make yours as perfect and uncluttered as possible. If your refrigerator is used with the auction of your home, make sure it is clean and tidy on the inside as well. When it comes to kitchens, start with the basics. Painting cabinets, doors, and tiles, for example, can make a big difference without requiring a major investment. Light in the kitchen is important because food is served, and lighting over the counter tops are often missed. Countertops in the kitchen should be clean. Thoroughly clean the cupboards and drawers. Don’t forget about the refrigerator, freezer, oven, and microwave.

 

Decorating Your Home

Return home and linger in each room’s doorway, imagining how your house will seem to a client. Consider the furniture design and plan the parts so that the space has aesthetic appeal. Check that the window coverings are uniformly hung. Once you’ve washed, renovated, and organized your house, you can begin building it. Styling and rearranging is a smart way to give the property an immediate facelift that will make it look brand new and attractive to customers. You can either contract a designer or rent furniture and appliances yourself. You are the most knowledgeable in your home, but a fresh outlook will also reveal a whole new significance in your spaces. Potential investors would be able to see different ways a space can be used by repurposing it. Smaller quarters, for example, could be repurposed as a home office, or existing furnishings in the main living areas could be reorganized to offer shoppers new ideas to help them appreciate the potential of different spaces. Examine the furnishings and appliances. The law of light and space is a cardinal rule when it comes to selling houses. The good news is that with carefully chosen furnishings, lighting, and decorations, you will make your home seem larger and brighter.

 

An exhilarating final touch will allow you to breathe life back into space, plus this is an enjoyable practice for you! Investing in comfortable home furnishings such as pillows, cushions, and throws can provide prospective customers a sense of daily life. True, indoor plants can add warmth and are also a very cost-effective way of immediately adding elegance and changing the dynamics of a room.
