Statistics indicate that a home that is staged is viewed more favorably by potential buyers and ultimately sells faster than a home that is not staged.
Before you have an open house to allow prospective buyers in to judge and evaluate your home, there are several things you should consider replacing to make your home more enticing and appealing to buyers.
While you may not want to totally renovate your kitchen, you should consider taking some steps to update it. Buyers will consider having to replace your old appliances as an expense they will immediately incur.
Therefore, it could be to your advantage to replace your outdated appliances with new ones. After adding new appliances, you might also want to update your cabinet hardware and add a new backsplash.
Buyers do not look favorably on homes with old windows or windows in need of repair. According to RetroTeck Window Mfg. Ltd., an installer of windows in Langley, a considerable amount of heat can be lost when the windows are not properly installed or are not energy efficient.
Buyers want efficient windows. It’s important to acknowledge the decorative impact windows can have on your home. You might want to consider replacing some of your currently unattractive windows with a more appealing style.
A garden window can make a room feel and look more spacious. Buyers are also impressed with spaciousness.
You can lose the interest of a potential buyer quickly if your roof is in need of repair. This is not a home improvement they want to bear responsibility for before or shortly after buying a home.
Curb appeal is important when selling a home. Replacing an unsightly roof is a sure way to improve the curb appeal of your home.
Most likely, you don’t have the intention of leaving your furniture in your home once you sell it. However, the furniture may be one of the things you need to replace before having an open house.
If your furniture is worn and outdated, it can make your home look unattractive. Store your stuff and rent a minimal amount of furniture and accessories that are more in keeping with the current trend.
Take a slow and careful walk around the outside and through the inside of your house looking at things as if you were a potential buyer. That will give you a good idea as to what you need to replace before having an open house.
