by Maxwell Alexander, Editor in Chief, Hudson valley Style Magazine
Whether you are selling your home to move to a new city or just to relocate to the other side of town, you will no doubt want to receive as much money for the property as you can. Luckily, there are a few tips you can follow to ensure your final selling price is as high as possible, such as:
• Stage the Home in Style
When a prospective buyer walks into your home, they don’t want to see a space cluttered with all of your belongings. Nor do they want to see a home totally devoid of fixtures or furniture.
Instead, they want to be able to envision how it would feel to live in the home on a day-to-day basis. The best way to provide them with this feeling is by staging the property in a way that is appealing to buyers but do it tastefully and concisely.
• Make Repairs
Before you endeavor to sell your home, you should set aside some time and money to complete any necessary repairs. However, before you start with the repairs, it would be wise to consult with your real estate agent.
They will be able to point out what needs to be addressed immediately and what can be avoided. Consulting with a professional will allow you to focus only on the repairs that will give you a return on your investment.
• Make Intelligent Upgrades to the Home
If you want to get as much of a return on your home as possible, it may be worth making some intelligent upgrades before selling the property. In most markets, this means making improvements to key rooms such as the kitchen, bathrooms, and master bedroom.
Even something as simple as repainting cabinets or installing new mirrors can make a sizeable difference in determining your final selling price.
Parting with your beloved family home is never easy. However, by following the tips and advice contained in this article, you will at least be able to ensure you maximize your return on the property.
