HOW TO MAXIMIZE YOUR RETURN WHEN YOU SELL YOUR HOME
In my Real Estate experience, I have come across many interesting things that homeowners have done to improve the value of their home. I would like to share with you my thoughts that can help you put more money in your pocket.
You must understand that buying a home is a very Emotional experience. A buyer will react emotionally to what he or she is seeing. The way you can make a potential Buyer react in a positive way towards your home is to appeal to their senses – Sight, Sound, Smell & Touch. The key to getting a Buyer to pay Top Dollar for your home is to create an atmosphere that will allow a potential Buyer to feel comfortable and relaxed in your home.
There are many improvements that can dramatically improve the value of your home. Such as a – New Kitchen, New Bath, New Windows, Finished Basement, Vinyl Siding, Extensions and other major improvements. However, these improvements will not put the dollars that you spent – back in your pocket.
My report will show you how Minor improvements can substantially improve the value and marketability of your home while investing very little money at all.
“It’s Amazing How A Little
Effort Can Go A Long Way”
FIRST IMPRESSIONS… ARE EVERYTHING
Most buyers form their first and strongest opinions before they even step out of the car. As they are driving through your neighborhood, they are inspecting all the surrounding properties. When they arrive at your home, you want them to feel that your home has been kept in good shape.
You can improve the attractiveness without spending a lot of money by keeping the lawn short and green, shrubbery trimmed and hedged, flowerbeds fresh and replenished, walkways broom swept and the yard free of debris. The idea is to make your home more attractive, not stand out as an oddity.
The first impression that a buyer gets when they first walk into your home, could dramatically effect what he or she is willing to pay for your home. Sight, Sound, Smell and Touch should all be positive…
SMELL – Light a nice smelling candle or even spray a little freshener throughout the house to arouse the senses. Try to eliminate pet smell if that is an issue.
SOUND – Play some soft sounding music to make them feel relaxed.
TOUCH – Hiring a professional house cleaner to give the house a good once over may not be a bad idea. Or put on the gloves and go to work!
SIGHT – Invest your “Time and Money” wisely while improving the look of the home, which in turn will add Value & Marketability. Here are the easiest ways to make a positive change…
Paint: One of the best investments you can make would be to paint the inside and possibly the outside of your home. A couple of hundred dollars spent could increase the value of your home a few thousand dollars.
Flooring: If you feel that your carpeting or flooring is a little outdated or worn down at all, you should seriously consider replacing it with neutral color carpeting or improving it as best you can. If you have hardwood floors underneath you should consider sanding and shellacking the floors to restore the finish.
Rule of Thumb – Do it Well, or Don’t Do It AT All: You may be tempted to do a lot of work yourself to save money. That is fine if you know you can do a good job. But if doing it yourself means a sloppy paint job, then I suggest hiring a professional. Hiring a professional can often be cheaper and faster in the long run. This is especially important when dealing with electrical systems or plumbing problems
