How Do You Boost Your Resale Value
In Tooele Utah, I'm asked a lot, 'how do you boost your resale value'? And then, I'm told, I don't have a lot of money to do much to make my house more appealing to potential buyers.
So... I thought I would give you some tips. These suggestions won't cost much. Maybe a little time and a trip or two to Home Depot, but they will make it easier for your agent to sell your home and help get offers closer to what you want.
Here are some tips I posted last year that have been helpful to a few, and certainly have been helpful to me getting top dollar for my listings, but for generating a lot of traffic to the homes I have listed for sale on the MLS.
Selling Your Home? Boost Your Resale Value with These Three Inexpensive Renovations
To get top dollar for your home, renovations may be necessary. However, some renovations can prove costly and they don’t always add value to your home. Here are three inexpensive renovations that are sure to improve the resale value of your home.
First Impressions Matter
Your home needs to have curb appeal. If the potential buyer doesn’t see that, it will be difficult to get the price you want. Spend money and time landscaping your yard. Pressure wash your driveway. Paint your front door. Make your porch look welcoming. If you do all of this yourself or with the help of family and friends, the costs will be reasonable.
After a prospective buyer is impressed by your nicely kept lawn, you will want to continue impressing him/her with your interior design. Buyers know what they want when it comes to the number of bedrooms and baths. You have something they want or they wouldn’t be looking at your home. Now, you need to keep their attention.
Each room needs to be freshly painted in a neutral color. Old wallpaper and borders should be stripped and walls repainted. Make each room look larger by clearing any clutter. If possible, remove any unnecessary furniture and store it somewhere else. Have any carpets professionally cleaned, and be sure to polish any hardwood flooring. In the bedrooms, de-clutter your closets. Your kitchen and bathrooms should be sparkling. Clean and organize counters and cabinets. Again, most of these suggestions cost little but add great value to your home.
When you think of upgrades, you many automatically assume major costs with little return. However, many upgrades may be within your budget. Consider making some of these affordable upgrades to your home.
Living Areas/Family Rooms – If you’re going for a more elegant touch, add some crown molding. For a more rustic feel, add box beams. Improving the ceilings of main rooms will add value to your home.
Selling your home may require you to spend a little money, but with these suggestions you’ll likely get the full value back when your home sells.
If you have more time, and a little more money, there are a number of other things you can do to boost your resale value. We should talk about those if you are considering listing your home in Tooele UT.
