6 Easy ways to add value to your home before selling

1. Start with the facade.

The front of your home is the first thing that any prospective buyer will see. Whether a buyer notices your property on real estate portals or driving past your home, the facade always leaves an impact. It may be as simple as a fresh coat of paint or paying attention to the garden that helps you find that buyer that is willing to pay over the odds.

2. Declutter.

Decluttering your home is by far the quickest and easiest way to add value to your home. By decluttering your home you are not only making the area look larger but also allowing buyers to visualise how the house may look if they were to purchase it.

3. Update your tapware.

New tapware can make your bathroom and kitchen look more appealing at very little cost. A basic kitchen mixer will cost around $50 at most retailers, while shower and basin sets can cost as little as $40 for a chrome wall top assembly.

4. Style it.

Styling can be the make or break when it comes to selling your home. You’ve probably seen on shows like the block, just how much styling can make a difference. Look at interior design photos and see what you can do differently to attract a buyers eye.

5. Paint.

Painting is one thing that can done by anyone and a fresh coat of paint can make a world of difference. Try and stick to colours that will attract the largest audience, bold colours may put buyers off and the chances are that they’ll repaint anyway.

6. Landscape the gardens.

Gardening may not be your passion, and it may not be the passion of your potential buyer, but a beautiful garden will compliment your house. Your front garden will give your property street appeal but it pays not to forget about your backyard.
