Making minor repairs
Small issues can send a message that the home isn’t well kept, this could also indicate to a potential buyer that there might be other costly neglects. So patching in holes in the wall and replacing broken appliances. Making these minor repairs will help the buyer see that the home is well cared for.
Adding a Fresh Coat of Paint
Adding a fresh coat of paint to your home will cover the walls, scuffs, scrapes and dirty marks. It’s recommended to paint with neutral colours, try choosing white/ light grey/light beiges and greige colours. Choosing these types of shades will make your home appear bigger, brighter and more inviting. This also creates a blank canvas which helps buyers vision of what their life could be like in the house.
De-personalise and De-clutter
With items like family photos, collectables and travel items cluttering up every room can make it hard for a potential buyer to imagine their belongings in the house, declutter can also make a room appear bigger. This is why new build show homes do so well with selling as its like a blank canvas, no one has lived in the home with no personal items so its easier for a buyer to vison their life in the home.
WHY? Potential buyers love to see space and storage. This makes it easier for buyers to vision themselves living there.
