There are few things more unpredictable than the housing market. For years we lived in a seller’s world, but when the housing crisis of 2008 hit, home prices plummeted. Now, more than eight years later the prices of homes are starting to go up once again. If you’re planning on selling anytime soon, now is the time to take advantage of these ways to boost your home’s resale value.
If you’ve ever watched HGTV, you know that every couple is looking for “an open floor plan.” Open concepts have been huge over the past few years, so if your home is divided into small, separate rooms, consider knocking down any non-load bearing walls to open up space.
Maintain your Landscaping
We know you’re hoping to be out in a few months or even weeks, so it can be tempting to do the bare minimum when it comes to landscaping. But remember that your yard is the first thing potential buyers see, so make sure it looks welcoming.
Use Light to Your Advantage
Bright rooms are automatically more inviting. Take advantage of this trick and open up or remove all the curtains before a showing.
Storage, storage, storage. As minimalist designs become more popular, every family is looking for extra places to keep their belongings out of view. Adding walk-in closets and shelving is a simple way to really entice potential buyers.
Installing solar panels and water heaters can save you as much as 80% on your energy bills – a huge selling point.
Take Advantage of Simple Updates
Is your shower curtain starting to look a little discolored? Are a few floor tiles coming loose? They may not seem like a big deal to you, but by making these small changes buyers won’t be distracted by the little things they’ll inevitably have to fix.
Don’t Neglect Appliance Maintenance
Cosmetic changes are important, but they are nothing if the sink is clogged and the toilet is leaking. So before you reach for the paint, make sure everything’s running smooth internally.
