THINKING ABOUT SELLING YOUR HOME? HERE ARE 7 QUICK AND EASY STEPS TO SELL YOUR HOME FOR MORE MONEY.
PAINT. Painting is a cost effective way of transforming the entire space. Choose something neutral like white, off white or light grey. Painting the house a neutral colour will help buyers visualize their stuff in your home and brighten up the space.
SPICE UP YOUR CURB APPEAL. Don’t have a green thumb? Hire a gardener to help add some classy colours to your front and back yards.
STAGE YOUR HOME & DEFINE EACH SPACE. You can hire staging companies in Calgary to help you rearrange your furniture items to define each individual space. This helps buyers see what they’re working with when they view your home!
CLEAN THE HOUSE. This may seem like a no brainer but many homes that I view with my clients are not clean. It’s hard to have the house in “show ready” condition all the time, but the cleaner it is, the higher chance it will sell quick and for more money.
UPDATE THE BATHROOMS. It may not make sense to spend money on new floor tiles, new shower tiles, a new toilet or new shower, but there are things you can do to freshen up your bathrooms! These include installing new grout, new caulking, new faucets, remove rust and update the door handles.
INSTALL FLOORING. There are some great flooring options these days that are very cost effective including laminate, carpet and luxury vinyl plank (LVP). Laminate and LVP are great options for replacing damaged hardwood. Carpet would only want to be placed in specific spaces such as the upper floor, bedrooms, or a basement.
HIRE A HANDYMAN. When you put effort into getting your home ready to sell, you will likely run into less issues. Have the handyman check for water leaks, repair rust, check the furnace, and repair any items you may have been meaning to get around to over the years.
These are just a few quick and easy ways to increase the value of your home before putting it up for sale. Of course, there are many other things you can do too! So if you are thinking about selling, let’s chat.
