As soon as you decide to sell think about these six areas for attention to protect your price. There are six areas that need a little attention to get a maximum benefit for what really is cents in the Rand for what it can secure with a better offer.
- Colour in the garden:
Take a look – are there are few tired spots close to the house or in very obvious places that attract attention? Particularly around the entrance to the property? Buy some trays of seedlings that are already blooming and some bark chips to finish.
IT SAYS HOMELY!
Those dry cracks in the wood or flaking varnish are easily solved. A coat of high gloss varnish will turn neglected into cared for. Impressions really count and nothing says neglected like tired wood.
IT SAYS CARED FOR!
- Pot of paint:
Scuff marks are inevitable and maybe you kept a little of that Midnight Blue Satin, otherwise – just paint white and turn scruffy into a blank canvas.
IT SAYS READY TO MOVE IN!
- Squeaky anything:
Q10 – sprayed here and there and one less thing to detract from the property. Silly things send the wrong message so eliminate distractions.
IT SAYS WELL MAINTAINED!
- Dirty old carpet:
For the price an old carpet screams I need renovation and it’s not worth it. If a steam clean will not do the trick then for the relatively low cost a new neutral colour inexpensive carpet will make the room sparkle.
IT SAYS CLEAN!
- Sparling Pool:
Pools can very often be perceived as a problem. If anything is going to sparkle make sure the pool does and best to leave the ‘Kreepy’ doing its thing.
IT SAYS HASSLE FREE!
