When you are trying to sell your home, the last thing you want is for it to be stuck on the market for months, with no luck finding a buyer. You need to be able to sell up and move on, which is why you should add features that attract buyers.
When buyers look for a property, there are three main things people will be looking for:
You don’t have any control over the style, and you will no doubt want the highest price possible. However, the style of your home can be changed and adapted to lure in potential buyers, and here are some things they love to see.
Natural light helps sell houses, so if you have big windows, make the most of them. Install blinds so they look larger, and avoid covering them with furniture or heavy curtains. If you don’t have much natural light, add some extra lighting to make things look as bright and pleasant as possible.
Natural stone flooring
Another feature that adds style to your home and makes it more pleasant is natural stone. Adding some natural stone floor tiles to your kitchen will instantly upgrade it and give it a luxe look. Natural stone wears well over time, feels good under your feet and looks expensive, so if you want to upgrade one of your rooms, consider these beautiful tiles.
Live in an area where parking is a challenge? It’s a good idea to add a driveway so that people know they always have a place to park. With the right planning permission, you can get a dropped curb and turn your front garden into car parking spaces. A parking space can even add value to your home and make it attractive to potential buyers.
Modern kitchens and bathrooms
Living rooms and bedrooms can be easily decorated if they are dated, but buyers generally don’t want to buy homes where they’ll need to do big renovation projects. If your kitchen and bathroom are out of date, you may want to:
- Get a quote for a renovation – if it adds value to your home, it may be worth paying for improvements
- Considering doing a quick upgrade and just doing the basics
- Selling your home as a fixer upper and lowering the price slightly
If your home only has small garden spaces, it may not be very attractive to potential buyers, but you can maximise the appeal of the space. Have it landscaped so the layout makes the most of the space, or at least declutter so the space looks as big as possible. It’s not possible to extend your garden, but you can certainly make it look appealing.
Selling your home can be tough in a difficult market, so it’s important to make it look as good as possible to potential buyers. Whether you completely renovate your home before you sell, or just make a few changes, you can maximise the amount of people who want to put in offers and get the best possible price.
