Location is one of the important factors in selling your home fast but there is some home improvement which makes sell fast too compared to other homes.
What buyers are looking in homes for sale in this market?
I’m sure if you are home owner then you have also bought the house for the same reasons like many other home owners. There are certain things in the house which common home buyers look for like kitchen, bathroom and entrance.
Here are the 5 main home improvements tips you can make before you put your bay area home on the market for sale.
Kitchen: Once you are inside the home, the first things many of the home buyers look for is kitchen. Yes! Kitchen is one of the top most rooms the home buyers look when they decide to buy. Whether your kitchen is small or large, you need to make it really presentable when you sell it. Use your kitchen corner as a small storage. You can buy some decorative corner shelves to install from Lowes or Home Depot and use that to put your daily use dishes. If there’s enough space for dual sink then install dual stainless sink in your kitchen which looks great. You can call your handyman guy to install this small storage if you are not good with handyman type job, you don’t want to mess up your kitchen –right :)?
Entrance: When someone parks their car outside and walk towards your house, the first thing they look at your entrance way, so why not make it nice and feel welcome to your home. If your entrance door is old then you can either buy a new designer front door which matches your exterior color of your house or paint the door nice warm color. If you can change the frame work which looks nice that would be good to make a great impression. If you have front yard then maintain that also with nice landscaping. You can get more ideas and tips on landscaping from HGTV website.
Crown Modeling: I don’t know about you but I like crown modeling in a house, it gives a sophisticated look and it is not that expensive to install crown modeling on the ceiling and if you put a fresh coat of paint throughout the house, it looks much better. You can try installing crown modeling in your house even if you are not selling.
Flooring: Somehow I noticed that most of the buyers don’t like carpet as the flooring in downstairs or living room. If you have the budget to change it hardwood or pergo flooring then update your flooring and if not then don’t worry, just use a professional carpet cleaner to clean it professionally. If you have already installed wooden flooring and it has been long time then you can polish your wooden floor to restore it shine.
De-Clutter: If you lot of things lying around the house then pack those things which you don’t use it often and put it in a storage or garage. You can also buy storage boxes which go under the bed or table, in that way you can keep away all those small things and make your house looks nicer. If your closet is bigger then you can organize your closet which closet organizer which you can buy any home improvement stores like Lowes. I have shown houses with stuffs all over and trust me, no one will like it and it will make less impressive to sell any house. Once you de-clutter your house, all that area will look bigger in size.
