Home Improvement That Will Add Value To Your Poperty



Want to sell your home quickly? Home makeovers are all the rage, but you don't have to go through a Changing Rooms-style transformation to make your property more enticing to prospective purchasers. Here's a few tips on how to accentuate the positive side of your abode:

If you're taking photos of your home to give to the estate agent, make sure they show your home from the best angle. If you can, it's best to take them during the summer months.

Give as much information as you can to the estate agent about your local amenities - transport, schools, shops, etc. - so potential buyers can get as full a picture of the area as possible.

When people come round to view, make sure your place is tidy (an obvious point, perhaps, but I can personally testify that the contents of someone's underwear drawer on a bedroom floor is not designed to attract a buyer). Don't leave last night's washing-up in the sink.

Try and remove/hide any items of furniture that make your home look cramped. Use the space you have to its full potential.

Don't decorate your whole property just before your home goes on the market - potential buyers might think you've got something to hide. But do make sure your walls and floors are clean and if a lick of magnolia is required then get your paintbrush out.

There are different schools of thought about whether it's better to be at home when people are viewing your property. If you're not, make sure the place is clean. If you are, don't follow your potential buyers around but be prepared to answer any questions they might have.
