How to optimise your home before selling

Written by Ashley Blake
Most of us consider our homes to be our largest financial investment. Therefore, it only makes sense that if you’re selling your home you want to get as much as possible for it. There are lots of ways (for little money) that you can maximise your homes best features and get the best return on investment possible!

Invest in the right lighting

If you want to optimise your home before placing it on the market, start with the right lighting. The right lighting can go a long way. Homebuyers don’t want to walk into dark, dull homes and that probably goes the same for you. A dark room is an immediate turn off because it gives an impression of small storage room. This is the reason why homes with plenty of natural light are easily marketable because it looks more spacious than it is.

In the same manner, the windows must be spotless so dust and dirt would not block the entry of light.

Fresh Coat of Paint

Light-colored paints are ideal for homes being put for sale. Like natural light, it can make any room look more spacious than it actually is and more ventilated. A fresh coat of paint in major rooms like living room, kitchen and master bedroom is adequate. There is no need to get the entire house repainted.

Everything Immaculate

You might also want to ensure that everything is immaculate. Even if your home is not that luxurious and big, a well-positioned mirror can create reflections of a big, optimized room. Put away all boxes of your things and while you’re at it remove anything that represents your personality. There is no way homebuyers can imagine themselves living in your home if these things get in the way.

What factors of home selling that you can control?

When you’re selling your home, it needs to be in a great condition, which you can easily control. Though you cannot change the existing structure of your home, its maintenance is extremely vital. You’re the one who is in control so you must make sure that there will be no clutter, the entire home is neat and well-serviced.

Finally, make a market analysis when it comes to determining the right price. Compare the prices of all homes sold in your locality as well as those that are still in the listings. Only then you can craft out the right terms and increase your chances of selling your home fast.
