If you are planning to sell your home then you should consider making some changes to it to get the maximum possible return on your investment. In today’s competitive and ever changing real estate industry, it is extremely important that your home stands out from the rest so that it can attract the potential buyers.

Here are some of the important tips that will help you add value to your ‘for-sale’ home:

  • Revamp the outdoors: Whenever a potential buyer enters your property, the first thing that can either attract or repel him is the exterior part of your home. Hence, make sure that the front yard of your home is clean and tidy. The garden should be well maintained and fenced, windows should be painted properly
  • Renovate the roof: A shabby roof can also be a negative factor for home selling. Visible damages will immediately be noticed by potential buyers and they will be compelled to reconsider the price they are paying for your home. Thus, try to repair the roof well before any visitor comes to see your property.
  • Refresh with paint: This is another useful and affordable way give a fresh look to your home. Do not use very bright colors as these may not be everyone’s choice. Instead, keep colors to a minimum, using light and neutral shades that go along with almost any furnishings.
  • Update flooring: Get the carpets steam cleaned to remove all the dust and stains to give a fresh look to it. You should also get the floors cleaned or repaired if they are showing signs of wear and tear.
  • Remove blemishes: Old-fashioned wallpapers, tacky light fittings, tainted cabinetries are also good options to be considered for uplift.  You need not spend a lot of money on this but work around creatively to give them a simple yet stylish look.
  • Install security features: Buyers look for a property that has proper security features installed. Installing new pad locks, fire alarms, CCTV cameras, motion detectors etc. can significantly add to the value of your home.
