When it comes to selling a house, you might find yourself playing the ‘devil’s advocate’. Your house is obviously worth so much money, otherwise you wouldn’t be living there yourself. Because you may not be in the business of selling homes or even anything for that matter, you will need to know some important tips which serve to help you get the best deal.
Seek the help of a valuer. The reason for doing this before anything else is to establish whether you should sell your home as it is or whether you will need to do some repairs. The other reason to get a valuation of the house is to remove the feeling that you are selling your house too expensively especially if you are not used to selling stuff. A valuer will give you a value which goes with the market rate. If you are satisfied with the rate, it is prudent to shave off about 10% of the price. This is to help you sell the house within a short time.
Look for simple ways to upgrade the house. It is important that you repair the broken pieces and areas of the house. However, remember that repairs are supposed to help you sell the house fast and with little problems. You should never overdo the repairs. Otherwise, if the repairs are overdone a buyer will suspect there is something you are covering up. You could also end up spending more than you can possibly fetch from selling the house. Only renovate what is necessary and that which will only make the value of the house go up.
Lighting your house is definitely going to matter. A well lit house is lovely to see and live in it. It is for this reason that you will keep on drawing the curtains in the morning. This is the same case with the customers. If they find that your house is not well lit especially naturally, some points on its value will fly away. Work on lighting as this can make the house sell even faster.
