If location sells a property, you must keep in mind this is something you can’t change when the time comes to list your home. So, how do you go about increasing value at this point? Staging is key; these are some tips to stage your home, even if you don’t have much to spend.
A potential buyer doesn’t want bright floral wallpaper in the dining room, or bright pink walls in a bedroom. Forget about seeing your family photos splattered all over the walls. Instead, invest in paint and neutral art and decor. Paint the home neutral colours that any buyer can see themselves living in; the same goes with art. Limit it, and if you choose to add some to the walls, go simple and keep it neutral.
The front lawn has to look good; curb appeal is something that will distract potential buyers. If there are weeds everywhere the home isn’t well kept or maintained and the front porch is falling apart potential buyers will drive right past your home. So, take some time to spruce up the front; you don’t have to hire a landscape company either. Add a few plants and flowers, mow the lawn, and even add a small fountain or decor out front. If you would like some help with your garden then you could hire a local gardener service.
Making sure the home is as neutral as possible, and doesn’t have personal touches everywhere, is key. Focus on appliances if you are going to invest money anywhere, as buyers want to see updated appliances. These simple changes and modifications are simple, are affordable, and you do not have to hire a professional to do the staging or to do the decorating, as you can make these small DIY projects you and your family can tackle yourself.
