5 Cheap Ways to Sell Your House
If you're planning to sell your house, you'll have to prepare it. The preparation depends on the condition of your house — from a full paint job to upgrading the tiles in your kitchen. And such repairs can be pricey.
But if you don't prepare your home, you might end up selling it at a less profitable amount.
Budgeting well can help you out, so here are 5 cheap ways you can do before selling your house.
1. Check the Exteriors
It’s important to give home-buyers a good first impression; you want them to feel at home from the start. Painting the entire exterior of the house can be expensive but there are many ways to do it on a budget.
Make sure the house is visible from the street. If you have a lawn, keep it mowed and plant some flowers. If needed, repaint the doors, repair the porch lights and add a welcome mat. Lastly, spray off any cobwebs and excess dust.
2. Make the Kitchen Cosy
A cozy kitchen can be the deciding factor for many buyers.
Granite slabs can be expensive, so try granite tiles instead for a cost-effective, modern look. Wooden cabinets can be repainted while light fixtures can be replaced at a low cost. You may also consider replacing a worn-out kitchen faucet and sink strainers for a cleaner look. For a sleek and shiny finish, upgrade your door knobs and cabinet pulls.
3. Keep the Bathrooms Spotless
Although prospective buyers may spend less time looking at bathrooms, it’s still important to keep them pristine.
Update the sink, vanity or toilet even if they might be slightly expensive. Remove stains and molds, or decorate with a simple shower curtain. And for a more personal touch, light scented candles and hang freshly washed towels on the racks.
4. Clean Every Nook and Cranny
The most important thing to do is to keep your house as clean as possible.
Wash and wipe windows from the inside and outside. Clean your carpet and dust the cabinets, wall fixtures, paintings and the top of doors and windows. Make sure to polish your flooring, whether it’s wood or ceramic.
5. Remove the Clutter
Excess clutter never looks good; buyers need space to move around and check out the interiors of the house.
Put away any furniture that may block movement. Make bookshelves and coffee tables as tidy as possible. Replace personal photographs with contemporary artwork. And if there’s a hole in the wall, make sure to patch it up. Lastly, get a paint job for the worst walls in the house.
