Easy Ways to Increase Your Houses Value
Before getting your house valuated think about the list below and if you should implement them to increase your house's value.
Clean up your house:
Fix what can be seen before what can't:
Seal the driveway:
Is the property secure?
- Installing a burglar alarm
- Installing a fire alarm
- Installing security doors
- Installing secure and reliable locks
Do you need new spouting?
Are your windows up to scratch?
Does the house need a power wash?
If excess heat is an issue then consider installing an air conditioner. Again, people will always pay extra to feel comfortable.
Things to think about before an open day.
-Make sure you have a plan and know what your doing on the day. Assign jobs to all family members or flat mates to get things done quicker in case there is a showing scheduled with short notice.
-Make sure everything smells nice and fresh, if you smoke do not smoke in your house for a few days before the auction. Open all the windows, use an air fresher if you have to.
-Get rid of all your pets for the day. They can be a nuisance especially if they are over friendly and may cause some allergic reactions.
-Your house should have a light and sunny atmosphere. Pull back all the curtains and blinds, turn lights if its dark or rainy.
-If you have the luxury of controlling the temperature of your house make sure the temperature is comfortable for all your guest.
-Clean your house thoroughly. By this I mean do everything humanly possible to cleanse your house. Clean the windows, the sink, vacuum the floor, scrub the toilet, take out the trash, make sure nothing appears to be in a sloppy mess.
-Leave the open home unless your do not have a real estate agent there. If you have to stay, don't let the buyers know your the seller and don't approach or smother them unless they come to you. Try to stay out of their way.
