Selling your property can be a stressful experience. We've included a few simple suggestions below that could make a big difference to your selling experience:
Keep it Simple
The main idea is to maximise the appeal of the house without spending a fortune. The whole process shouldn’t cost you the earth and, with the help of those close to you such as family and friends, you should have your property presentable in a relatively short period of time. Only invest money where you are confident that there will be a return.
If you don’t have a green thumb, consider hiring a gardener. Strategically positioned planting, neat edges and freshly cut lawns will enhance the street appeal. Often potential purchasers will do a drive-by before deciding if they should inspect your property. Typically, most advertising materials will lead with a photograph of the front of the property. First impressions count and we want buyers falling in love with your property from the moment they see it.
Considering Major Changes
Renovations can add significant value to a property but you can run the risk of overcapitalising. Interestingly enough, many buyers are also looking for a ‘renovators delight’ style home so in some cases you are better off saving your money. Always ensure you speak to a real estate agent before undertaking any major changes!
Most importantly, try to enjoy the selling process. Avoid stress by being well prepared and use the people around you to help carry the workload.
