It’s real estate’s worst kept secret, ‘The Spring Selling Season’ arguably the best time to sell a house with the property market refreshed and ready to bounce into action.
But, with increased competition comes expectation. To get the most out of your home, there are a few things you will need to do to stay ahead of the game.
Here are our top tips:
Firstly, do your research on where the market is at in your area, ask a real estate agent for their advice on what you can expect in this current market – prices in WA have increased significantly, but not all areas have risen to the same degree, so check this out, factor in size, and features.
Decluttering your home will increase its appeal to buyers, along with fixing up any odd jobs, attending to any painting or minor renovations, which will increase your properties price. Areas such as the kitchen and bathroom are big-ticket items when buying a home; think of it from a buyer’s point of view. Freshen up the space with a natural colour pallet on the walls, and soft furnishings can make a world of difference.
Let the light in from every angle, open blinds, clean windows, mirrors, and drapes, giving that fresh feeling throughout.
When it comes to outside, gardens have been through a tough time over winter. If gardening isn’t in your DNA, bring in the professionals to tidy up lawns, flower beds, alfresco and pool areas. These are critical areas when selling and come up like a dream in your photographs, increasing your properties potential selling price.
Consider bringing in a professional home styling company. Not only will they be able to help you present your home in its best possible light and stand out in the competition, but they may also help increase the sale price of your home.
