Moving house is not a decision to take lightly. It requires commitment, hard work and a lot of strength to get through it. If only it was as simple as boxing up your belongings in one house and unpacking those boxes in another.
When you stop and think about how much your house is worth, do you think about it in its current state. Your home is your home, and it’s perfectly fine as it is. But, it may be worth taking a walk around your home and get in the mind of a third person. Not the estate agent but a possible buyer. Why should a complete stranger buy your home? What does it have to offer? Is there room for improvement? It may be worth putting aside a small budget for aesthetic enhancements:
New Flooring – Lived in floors can usually be covered with a rug of some sort and be forgotten about, but to potential homebuyers, new engineered flooring is in high demand. The flooring is comprised of wood layers stacked cross-grain and bonded together under heat and pressure – the process of this makes the floor more durable and stain resistant which is perfect for families with kids and animals. Investing in a beautiful floor will highly increase the resale value of your home.
Wash Your Windows – Newly washed windows can make a huge impression on potential homebuyers. The amount of light streaming in can make all the difference. Buyers want to be able to see out clearly as well as looking in. If you’re not able to do it yourself, hire a professional Window Cleaning Company who will give your home an affordable facelift.
Out With the Old In With the New – Bathroom and kitchen renovations don’t require a huge expense. Worn out baths, countertops and faucets can be refurbished to look brand new. They will increase the life of those fixtures for at least ten years for a fraction of the cost of buying new and getting it all installed.
