Selling a property can be an overwhelming undertaking. You might be eager to move into your new home, but you have to focus on getting the best possible deal for your old one. The bigger your profit, the more money you’ll have to spruce up your own abode. If you want to sell your house for a bigger profit then here are some smart ways to add value to your property.
Make it feel larger.
There are plenty of ways to give a house the illusion of size. You could declutter or even convert existing space; for example, the attic could become a guest bedroom. Of course, you could always create a property that feels larger by actually making it larger. You might want to consider adding an extension to your property. If there’s space in your garden then you could build a conservatory that’s attached to the living room or the kitchen, depending on whichever room faces the garden. It can be a big renovation project but one that’ll certainly add some value to your home. You need to make sure you do a professional job, of course. You might want to get a drain CCTV survey to ensure that the plumbing for this extension is up to scratch. It’s vital that your house functions as a cohesive unit. But the power of an extension shouldn’t be underestimated. One extra room can make a home feel so much bigger to potential buyers, so it could hugely increase your profits.
Give it a fresh yet lasting design.
The key to designing a home well is to balance modernity with a classic style that’ll never go out of fashion. You’re trying to entice potential buyers with a brand new aesthetic, but you want to create a household that is objectively well-designed rather than following fleeting trends. Otherwise, if you have trouble selling the property in the first year or so then you might find that it’s design already looks dated and unfashionable. Opting for a transitional design is a smart move in the current property market. This style combines contemporary and classic design elements to create the best of both worlds. You’re aiming for a minimalistic design with neutral colours (e.g. white) with the occasional sprinkle of vintage style (e.g. old armchairs, a chandelier, and so on). Using natural materials is wise too. Wooden flooring is timeless; it’s the perfect bridge between old and new interior design. Giving your home a fresh yet lasting design will really help it to sell for a bigger profit.
Add curb value to the exterior.
You need to add curb value to your property’s outside area. The impact of a well-renovated household interior can be diminished by an unappealing household exterior. Remember that first impressions are everything. Switch on your entrepreneurial mindset. If you want to reel in potential buyers then you have to immediately grab their attention, whether they’re looking at your property in person or online. Add some vivid colours and brightness to this outdoor space. Plant some more flowers in your front yard to lift the aesthetic of your property. Evergreen plants are a good option because they look fresh throughout the year. Consider repainting your front door and power washing your driveway too. Everything has to scream “new”. That’s the key to instantly raising the value of your property in the eyes of potential buyers.
