Here are 10 easy ways to increase the value of your home:
- Create spaces:
Remove walls that do not contribute anything, furniture, decoration … Any idea you can think of is good to try to give amplitude to the different rooms of your home and create a feeling of a larger environment.
It is a small investment that will generate a better impression to potential buyers of your home.
- Improves the illumination of the house:
The better the lighting in the home, the better it will look.
Changing the light bulbs to put others that give more light or even bring a lighter shade to the interior, are some tricks that do not require a large investment.
When it’s time to greet visitors, open the curtains and blinds or install presence detectors so that the lights come on.
- Minor maintenance work:
Checking doors and windows, repairing a leak, eliminating deteriorated furniture, repairing glass… These are aspects that improve (and a lot) the visitor’s impression.
Any small scratch can catch the attention of the person interested in the home and become the thing they remember most about their visit.
A small investment in these types of repairs will have a very positive effect on the overall impression your prospective buyer will take away.
- Install cost-saving elements:
There are small actions that allow us to reduce our energy bill and, at the same time, contribute to the care of the environment.
Surely both aspects (efficiency and environment) will be valued by the potential buyer, so some ideas to make the house more attractive is to install presence detectors for lighting, place energy-saving light bulbs, a more efficient boiler or even better windows that insulate well and save on heating.
- Take care of the entrance of the house:
This room, sometimes so forgotten, is vital. Did you know that a potential buyer decides on a home during the first seven seconds he or she spends in it? The first impression must be impeccable.
- Pay attention to the floor of the house:
Spending a small amount of money to improve the condition of the soil is recommended. The return on investment can be as much as double the amount invested.
- You can count on expert help:
Having the help of a real estate agent specialized in the sale of real estate will help you obtain the highest value for your home. An expert real estate agent knows the market and the real prices at which properties similar to yours are selling in the area.
In addition, a real estate agency can take professional photographs so that your property looks its best, create a video, a virtual tour, a marketing plan to achieve maximum diffusion … And a long etcetera.
Do you know the Home Staging technique? This is a technique used by the best real estate agencies to significantly improve the appearance of the house without the need to invest in a reform. This makes the properties much more attractive to the potential buyer and allows them to be sold earlier and at a higher value.
- Kitchen and bathroom:
Undoubtedly, the critical points of a house are the kitchen and the bathroom.
A thorough upgrade of them can be expensive, but a facelift is essential and quite economical. For example, changing the shower curtains or toilet seat can create a much better look.
- Neutral colors in the paint:
Not everyone has the same tastes and, therefore, the best thing to do when you want to sell a house is to choose neutral and light tones for the walls, which provide warmth, are more impersonal and can be decorated in any way.
- Take care of plants and outdoor areas:
If you have plants at home, make sure they look good. A manicured garden will help generate the feeling that the home as a whole is well maintained.
