Have you been thinking about putting your Bacchus Marsh real estate up for sale? If so, you may be wondering if there is anything you can do to help make your home the pick of the crop.
In my last blog I talked about the value of your garden, but there are plenty of other things you can do to help make your home stand out to buyers. Here are some ideas:
*Clean and de-clutter – The first thing you should do when you’re getting your Bacchus Marsh real estate ready for sale, is give your home a massive clean! While you’re cleaning everything out try and get rid of any clutter and knick-knacks too, so that there’s nothing lying around your house that may distract buyers.
*Give your property a makeover – Apart from cleaning, there might be things around your home that need fixing, or a little tender loving care. For example you might consider repainting, putting in new carpets or repairing leaking taps or pipes. Take a look around your property – there are probably lots of small improvements you could make that will make your home look better and help attract buyers.
*What about renovations? – If your property is in need of a complete overhaul, you might be wandering whether renovations are the answer. Renovations can definitely help add value to your property, but just be careful not to overcapitalise. Don’t spend more getting your place fixed than you’re likely to get back when it comes time to sell.
*Ask your Bacchus Marsh real estate agent for advice – Each and every property is different, so every property requires different advice. If you’re unsure about what your property needs to help it stand out to buyers, talk to an experienced Bacchus Marsh real estate agent and they will let you know what buyers are looking for in your neighbourhood.
