Maximise Your Sale Price
Five Easiest and Budget Friendly Ways to Help Maximise Your Sale Price
- New Carpet/Flooring
- Staging the Interior
Add Some Sparkle
Make your home sparkle with a good spring clean, inside and out. Maybe a fresh coat of paint is needed or new carpets.
A few hundred dollars spent sprucing up your home will increase the saleability and more than likely increase your sale price.
De-Clutter and Style
People collect an amazing amount of stuff. Almost every home shows better with less furniture. Remove pieces of furniture to make rooms appear more spacious. You can always hire someone to stage your home for you. A well styled home can add up to $20,000 to a sale price.
Likewise, buyers love to snoop and will open closet and cabinet doors. Tidy cupboards speak volumes. Not only do they make storage spaces look bigger, they also suggest you take good care of the rest of the house as well.
Pre-Empt the Paperwork
- Get a building and pest report and have any repair work done prior to sale. A clear report can be used as a selling tool for buyers.
- Obtain a certificate of compliance from Council for any recent building works.
- Leased? Check the expiry date and termination requirements and advise your agent.
- Make a note of all inclusions and exclusions. In particular, anything that will not remain in the home after sale (plants, lighting, blinds etc.).
