With the Perth market showing signs of slowing down in some areas, those who are selling property may find it more difficult than it has been during the last year or so. We are starting to see more choices for buyers, making buyers feel like they can afford to take their time to find the property that is just right for them.
If you are in a position where you want to sell an investment property or your current home, to ensure that your property sells fast, for the best price, you will want to make it more attractive. Here are a few tips.
Unique Appearance Upgrades
In any competitive market, you must find a way to differentiate your property from that of the competition. One of the best ways to do this in a home is to improve its appearance to make it stand out. This can be done with landscaping or a new colour scheme to the front facade, for example. Just make sure you don’t over-spend and run any proposed changes past your real estate agent first to ensure they will be met well by the market.
If previous tenants have left clutter in the yard, get rid of it. If you are selling your current home, take extra furniture and mementos to a storage facility or make use of one of the car spots in your garage.
If the home is vacant, you may want to hire display furniture to stage your home. Stagers can act as consultants or they can even stage your home with rental furniture. Either way, it will sell faster and for a better price if it looks better.
As you go through your property, try to see it through the eyes of a potential buyer. What are the areas that need work or are letting the house down. It is always best to address these items first, attempting to get the property to an even overall standard. That way there should hopefully not be any glaring negatives for the buyer to focus on.
