Adding Value to Your Home:

Ten tips that will add value to your home and increase your chances of a successful sale.

1. De-clutter. Clutter discourages potential buyers by making rooms seem smaller and a lot less appealing.

2. Neutralize. Buyers will generally be looking for a blank canvas on which they can impose their own personality.

3. Ensure your entrance is clear and organized

4. Keep your kitchen counters clear of clutter

5. Maximize the light in your home

6. Storage is something a purchase is looking to maximize

7. Take the home out of your house

8. Ensure pet bowls and items are stored during showings

9. Make the first appearance of your house impressive. If the appearance of your property is not good, many potential buyers will not even walk through the door. The front of your property is critical. Front gardens should be well maintained all doors and window frames newly painted if necessary.

10. Take the time to replace a ripped window screen, add a fresh coat of paint or colorful flowers to a family room. Simple touches like these can add thousands of dollars to your bottom line.
