How to Get Top Dollar for Your Home – What You Might Not Know

Selling your home can be a tough gig and getting the best possible price can be even harder. If you want to get top dollar for your house there are a range of tricks and tips that you can implement. Everyone knows that keeping a clean home and a fresh coat of paint can make a difference, but there are a lot of tricky and less known techniques that you might not be aware of. For your convenience, we have compiled those tips here, so you can add those extra digits to your final price. Here are the top tips for getting top dollar for your house that you might not have known.

Renovate Smart

Tidying up the garden or adding a fresh coat of paint are both great ideas when preparing to sell your home but you can take this one step further. Don’t just renovate, renovate smart! If you’re preparing to sell you shouldn’t renovate to match your taste but to match the wider appeal of the market. Choose colours and designs that are modern and timeless, creating a home that looks new but let’s the buyer’s imagination run wild. 

Let the Light Shine In

One of the easiest ways to create a warm and welcoming environment that buyers will love is by maximising your use of natural light. Cut bushes, take down drapes and clean your windows to make your house seem bright and cheery. When it comes to artificial light, change your bulbs and your lampshades to create a bright, open space. 

Create Space

Speaking of open space, everyone loves a home with room to move. Even if your home comes off as cosy, there are some easy ways to make it look bigger. Don’t fall into the trap of putting up all of your prettiest decorations. Instead, store them for your move and create a minimalist space. Another great trick is to take half the clothes out of your closet. A neatly organised, half-empty closet will make that all important storage space look as big as it can be. 

Forgo Your Four-Legged Friends

Everyone loves a cat or a dog right? Well that may be true on the internet but in the property market your four-legged friends are a big no-no. By giving them a holiday to a pet hotel you can remove that animal smell from your home, removing any lingering thought that your home isn’t clean. 

Invest in an Excellent Estate Agent

This is the most important element in getting top dollar for your home. An experienced real estate agent is a skilled negotiator and an industry professional who can add thousands to your home. Their feedback will be honest, their reputation will become your reputation and they can help you decide the tricky things, like the method of sale for your house.
