Simple Steps to Setting Your Home Up for a Quick Sale

on January 19, 2017

If you’re planning to sell your home at some point of time in the near future, you have landed on the right page.

While Australia is regarded as an ideal place to buy or rent a home with a comprehensive range of functional, aesthetically appealing properties, the seemingly competitive real estate market can make it quite challenging for some home owners to sell their property.

But don’t panic!

No matter how competitive the market is, there are certain ways you can make your home stand out in the neighbourhood and grab the most attention of potential buyers.

The following are the most viable yet effective means to improve your home’s value in an instant.

Exterior Wall Treatment
The first thing you would want to make sure when preparing you home for sale is that your exterior looks not just fine but appealing.

There’s nothing better than a fresh coat of paint to rejuvenate the façade of your depilated and old house. However, you don’t want to make your exterior stand out for wrong reasons. So, avoid outright bold tones like green lime or hot pink. Also, applying a render and other protective coatings before the paint can help prepare a fine base for painting.

In addition to a paint job, you must inspect your exterior walls for visible signs of damage like worn or rotten weatherboard panels and gaps between bricks. Paying heed to these small details can go a long way to boost your home’s value.

Spruce Up Doors and Windows
New, sophisticated doors and windows don’t just make for aesthetic appeal but help to make your house more energy efficient thus lowering household running costs.

When upgrading your doors and windows, also pay attention to kitchen cabinets and drawers. Check if cabinet doors, knobs and handles are grubby or need to be replaced. There are a lot of quirky knobs and fancy handles out there in the market that can add a dramatic yet compelling twist to your kitchen.

Rearrangement
Lifting the appeal of your home can be as easy as moving existing things around. Rearranging stuff will not only give your home a fresh, unique look but will make the interior more organised and spacious if done in a strategic manner.

You have all the freedom to get as creative as you can with your rearrangement tactics. While you’re at it, don’t shy away from incorporating unique design themes into your interior design.

The Takeaway
Aside from the tips mentioned above, there can be several other easy, economical and interesting ways to spruce up your home to get sold fast.

While most of these makeover feats can be tackled on your own, we recommend you to hire professionals for a seamless paint job.
