How to Boost Your Home’s Value For a Sale: Expert Tips from Abode Real Estate

Selling your home? Abode Real Estate understands that you want to get the best possible price. While the current market conditions play a big role, there’s plenty you can do to improve your home’s appeal and maximise its value. Here are some expert tips to get you started:

First Impressions Matter: Enhance Your Curb Appeal

Potential buyers form an opinion within seconds of seeing your home. Make that first impression a positive one! Start with a tidy exterior. Give your house a fresh coat of paint in a neutral colour. Power wash walkways, driveway and the exterior of your house. Spruce up your garden with low-maintenance plants, mulch, and a pop of colour with flowering shrubs. A well-maintained lawn and a welcoming entrance set the stage for a positive showing.

Declutter and Deep Clean: Create a Move-In Ready Oasis

A clean and clutter-free home feels more spacious and inviting. Pack away personal items, family photos and knick-knacks. Declutter benchtops, shelves and inside cupboards. Deep clean your entire home, paying attention to often-missed areas like ceiling fans and light fixtures. Sparkling floors, gleaming surfaces and a fresh scent go a long way in creating a positive impression.

Small Renovations with Big Impact: Strategic Upgrades

Kitchen and bathroom upgrades are classic ways to add value. New fixtures, a fresh coat of paint, and modern hardware can make a big difference without breaking the bank. Consider replacing worn-out carpets with easy-care flooring options like timber-look laminate. Adding energy-efficient downlights throughout the house is another attractive upgrade for potential buyers.

Let There Be Light: Maximise Natural Light

A bright and airy home feels more spacious and welcoming. Open curtains and blinds during viewings to allow natural light to flood in. Consider trimming overgrown trees or shrubs that block sunlight. Strategically placed mirrors can also help bounce light around the room, creating a more open feel.

Stage it Right: Showcase the Potential of Your Space

Staging involves arranging furniture and décor to create a neutral and inviting space. Potential buyers should be able to envision themselves living in your home. Invest in some minor furniture rearranging or rentals to optimise the flow and functionality of each room. Neutral-coloured cushions, throws and fresh flowers add a touch of style without overwhelming the space.
