Top tips to boost home value with the help of expert RM Décor Solutions painters and decorators. If you’re thinking about selling your home in the next year or two, you’ll naturally be hoping to get as much money for it as possible. That means you may need to come up with some creative ways to spruce up your living space and make it attractive to buyers – after all, it’s a very competitive market, with so many people looking for their ‘dream home’. You need to turn your home into the kind of place where other people can see themselves spending their future.
Step 1, The Outside Of The Property
The property’s exterior and the garden space is the first thing a potential buyer will see of your home – and we all know that first impressions count. If your property looks a little run-down or shabby from the outside, it’s important to address this issue. If you have a brick home with missing gaps, fill them in, or render over them to create a clean and fresh look. If your home has been painted, give it another coat to freshen it up and make it look brand new. You should also pay attention to things like your driveway and paving, as well as the front garden. Plant some simple flowers to brighten it up, and make sure the lawn is mown before each viewing!
Step 2, Interior Basics
Inside the home, you should be looking to give all doors – frames, window frames, skirting boards and bannisters a new coat of paint. This gives the entire place a ‘finished’ look, and if you’re using the same colour for all of them, it ties the home together. If you’re not sure whether you can do the job, call in RM Décor Solutions to get the job done to a very high standard.
Step 3, Walls and Floors
You should also seek to freshen up the walls and flooring before you put a property on the market. Many estate agents will suggest restoring your interiors to a neutral shade before you try to sell – it acts as more of a ‘blank canvas’ for potential buyers. If you’ve used bright, vibrant colours or avant-garde shades in any of your rooms, it may be time to paint over them with a few coats of paint in a neutral tone, that won’t be likely to put anyone off. Of course, you still need some personality in the home, so a few splashes of colour here and there are fine, but try to look at the property with an objective eye and imagine you’re viewing it as a buyer.
If you have carpets, they should be professionally deep cleaned, and if you have laminate flooring, lino or stone floors, you should make sure they’re sparkling and fresh before each viewing.
