HOW TO GET MORE FOR YOUR HOME

See your home through a buyer's eyes
You can significantly increase your home's market value by following a few simple steps to uncover your home's full potential. In the end, you will attract more potential homebuyers and ultimately increase the listing price of your home. Here are all the little things you can do to attract the big offers:

1. Remove clutter
The more you simplify each room, the better your buyer can envision their furniture and style in your home. Take your ornaments, collectibles, and knick-knacks and store them in boxes. Your house will feel a lot bigger and more inviting when you get rid of all the non-essential stuff lying around your house.

2. Keep the décor simple
Think of your home as a hotel. Keep the basic furniture, and add a few matching accents. Place a beautiful centerpiece in the center of your dining room table. Remove your individual personal style. Make your home feel clean, fresh and contemporary with a style that's appealing to anyone.

3. You never get a second chance to make a first impression
Make sure your home's front entrance is immaculate. Repaint or replace the front door if necessary, polish the door's hardware and make the glass shine. Also ensure your front lawn is trimmed and the walkway is clean.

4. Go over your home with a fine-toothed comb
Chances are you may not notice damage or problems that a new buyer would. Be critical, and don't give your buyer a reason to lose interest.

5. Consider renovation
Though not a necessity, certain renovations, such as new kitchens, bathrooms and professional landscaping may reap a financial benefit that far outweighs their cost. Consult with your real estate professional before beginning any work to ensure it will be a profitable decision.

6. Freshen up
A fresh coat of paint is often enough to update the rooms in your home. Remember to choose natural tones, as these are the most complimentary and flattering for all furniture and styles.

7. Sweat the small stuff
Dripping faucets, loose cupboard handles, sticking windows and other minor flaws are often more visible than you think. Check all your light bulbs and replace as necessary. Take the time to make these small repairs.

8. Beautify from bottom to top
Don't forget to organize all the junk you've accumulated over the years. Display the full value of these spaces by removing unnecessary articles and use proper storage solutions to organize what's left.

9. Make your home inviting
Show that you care about your home's appearance. During a showing, open curtains and draperies to add a cheerful appeal. Make bedrooms look inviting. Remove excess furniture and use attractive bedspreads and curtains. Dark rooms can seem both small and depressing. Proper illumination is like a welcome sign and very encouraging to the potential buyer. If you have any decorative or track lighting, be sure it is on.

10. Your home should sparkle!
Cleaning is the single most cost effective way to make your home more attractive to buyers. Clean your house and keep it that way. Make your home ready for a showing any day of the week.

People WILL BE CRITICAL when it comes to cleanliness, so make sure everything is neat and tidy. Floors, windows, walls, doors...everything! Give extra care and attention to the two most important areas in a buyer's mind: bathrooms and kitchens. Once it's clean, keep it clean! You never know what day your ideal buyer will visit. Make your house immaculate inside and out.

11. The Importance of a bathroom
Beautiful bathrooms will help sell your home. Make this room sparkle. Hang fresh clean towels in the bathrooms.

12. Make the exterior as inviting as the interior
Ensure that the access roads are clean and free or garbage. Make sure you cover open drains. Plant flowers and shrubs, seed and water your grass, remove Christmas lights or Wesak deco. And don't forget to paint your mailbox.

13. Pay attention to details
Clean up cobwebs, fold towels in your linen closet to perfection, remove family photos, and make every detail perfect. Make sure home buyers fall in love with your home by leaving no stone unturned. It'll be worth the effort!

14. Make space
Organize closets, cupboards and the garage to make them look bigger. Move all the toys, bicycles, and scooters away from the front of the house. Neat, uncluttered spaces increase the visual dimensions of the space. Once you're done, don't be surprised if you love your home more than you ever have. Looks attractive, clean and stylish right? If you're impressed, home buyers will be too!

15. Don't forget your four-legged friends
Keep pets out of the home while potential buyers are visiting. Many prospects are afraid of or allergic to pets, and will not be able to properly consider your home if they are present.

16. Eliminate odors as much as possible
Place potpourri in the bathrooms, use air freshener and deodorizer, if you have indoor pets or there's a smoker in the house. Avoid cooking foods with strong aroma.

17. Keep it quiet
Turn off the television. Either use soft, mellow music to set a relaxed mood, or keep the stereo silent.

18. Repair roof leaks
The last thing a potential buyer wants to worry about is the roof. Paint and repair your gutters

19. Add some final touches
A couple of fresh bouquets of flowers and some nice potted plants in decorative containers can do wonders.

20. The best way you can help
Don't be there. You want people to feel relaxed, and allow themselves to daydream that your home is their home. This just isn't possible with you there. Go visit a friend, or if you have pets take them on a field trip.
