When it comes to selling your home, there are a number of factors that will determine the success or, indeed, failure of your attempts. For instance, the overall structural integrity of your home will be of extreme importance when it comes to the property value. However, if the art of flipping houses has taught me anything, you can take your home’s property value into your own hands. With some hard work and attention to detail, you can transform your house from a subpar suburban pad to a knockoff Biltmore. Here are a few tips to guide you along.
First and foremost, you need to assess your home for damages and make repairs. This almost goes without saying, but keep in mind that you may gloss over some imperfections just owing to that fact that you’ve seen them so often for so long as to make them virtually invisible to you. However, these lesser damages will still impact resale value, so make sure to do what you can to maintain your home before putting it up for sale. It can also be the cherry on top for a potential buyer who’s on the fence to see a home with little to no damage to it.
Next, you can work on interior design. Assuming your furniture is coming with you, it serves only as a template for now, if that, depending on when you move your furniture. However, other elements of your interior design will remain and could stand to be updated to make for a more stunning display to entice potential buyers. So, consider replacing wallpaper and tiles, as well as repainting walls. Small touches like these are sure to increase resale value to the point that it pays for itself to do the extra work. With these tips in mind, you can increase the property value of your home and recoup some of the cost of your new home.
