Selling a house requires money at first. Selling a bare and unmaintained house will get you low-priced offers. The best way to get a good price for your house is to do upgrades. Basically, you are improving your house so you can increase its resale value.
Here are 4 time-tested house upgrades to keep your house at a higher price range:
Do a simple paint job
One of the first things a potential client will see in your house is the paint. Obviously, any house that has chipped paint will have slim chances of being sold. Do a simple paint job (just primer and paint) and your house will look fresh and clean.
We do not recommend painting your house with flashy colors before selling. The main rule you should remember, which also applies to other upgrades, you want your house to be versatile. If it has a more classic style, more people from different lifestyles and demographics can be potential buyers.
Customers want a house that they can customize later on according to their needs and wants. That is the goal you should have in mind.
Remodel your kitchen
The kitchen is one of the most used parts of the house. Cooking and storing food causes this part of the room to show age faster than other rooms. Remodeling the kitchen to make it brand new is one of the initial upgrades most house sellers do.
Just keep it clean and simple. You should not add fancy fixtures and appliances. This will just make you spend more which then will require you to up the price. A high price will limit your potential customers. Note the difference between an expensive and value house. Any practical buyer will choose the latter.
Make your rooms bigger
Most buyers prefer two big rooms to 4 small rooms. This is because they can do more with a larger space. They can be the ones to divide the rooms or not. Aside from the main rooms, you can redevelop the attic so that it can be made into another room. If you have a basement, keep it clean too since most people look for a basement for their craft or storage room.
Check and upgrade your wiring and insulation
Faulty electrical wiring is the main reason why people do not buy a house. It is just a hassle when the power goes off and it is a fire hazard too. Hire a reliable electrician to check on the wirings so everything is working. Also, your insulation boards should still be there. Proper insulation is a good selling point since it can shed off hundreds of dollars in your customer’s electric bill.
