Selling your home? If so, you might want to make a few improvements before moving forward with the sales process.
There are many things that homeowners can do to boost their home’s market value. And, not all of them require big-budget renovations. Increasing your home’s value can be done without investing too much time and money – and the results are truly worth it.
Taking some time to fix up your house before putting up the ‘for sale’ sign will help attract serious buyers, boost the listings price point, and get your home sold faster.
When preparing to sell your home, use my 3 favorite tips that sellers can employ to raise their home’s value:
Boost Your Home’s Curb-Appeal
First impressions hold a lot of weight – especially when it comes to real estate. A great way to enhance your property’s value is by working on its curb appeal.
The exterior of your home says a lot to prospective buyers. It marks the first impression that interested buyers have with the home, so make sure that you’re setting things up for success.
Take some time to spruce up the landscaping, repair any cracks in the pavement or driveways, and add a fresh coat of paint. Add some potted plants near the entryway or windchimes to add an appealing, homey essence to the property.
A great place to make an investment in boosting your home’s curb appeal is the front door. A sturdy and stable front door is the first thing that buyers physically interact with, so it may be a good idea to replace older doors or add a new coat of paint.
Real estate listings are highly dependent on square footage. If you’re looking to make a solid pre-sale investment that will increase your listing’s price point, consider expanding your home’s square footage. Add an additional room, bathroom, or get creative and design an awesome new outdoor deck.
Implement Smart Home Technologies
There’s no way around it – technology sells. Many of today’s home buyers are looking for cutting-edge listings that are incorporating the latest Smart Home technologies. It adds convenience, connection, and accessibility to the home owning experience.
One of the greatest motivators for homeowners to adopt Smart Technology is security. Consider adding security cameras, alarms, and other monitors. Other popular Smart amenities are entertainment, Smart assistants, and lighting.
If you choose to go with Smart technologies, make sure that you’re advertising this in your online listing as a luxury amenity.
