Do you have an extra house that you’re looking to rent out or sell? This article will help you increase home values to ensure you get the most bang for your buck. To get an even more lucrative deal, of course, you should definitely renovate – do some improvements to your old house and get it on the market for the people to marvel at. This does require a lot of planning and a lot of work, not to mention that you need to have a budget with which to do all the improvements, but ultimately, if you find the right buyer or tenant, it will all be worth it and more once his or her removal van appears on the horizon.
Here are some steps needed to increase home values
Step 1. Remove unneeded items, declutter.
You might be using your extra house for all the clutter that you cannot fit in the new one, or maybe you just used to live there and left many things behind. Many of those things are probably rubbish that just needs clearing. Either do it yourself if you don’t want to waste money, or call a company to do it for you. Send everything for recycling, or donate it, or sell it to a flea market – your choice. Just don’t keep clutter in the house.
Step 2. Cleanliness is next to Godliness.
If nobody has lived there for a while, surely the house needs some cleaning up as well. Get rid of all the old items inside and if you cannot be bothered with that, get a furniture removals service to do it instead. After you have an empty place, get wild with the cleaning products and leave no stone unturned. Again, if you do not wish to save money, you can just get a cleaning company and they will take care of the cleanliness of the house thoroughly.
Step 3. Renovate.
Yes, this stage involves many things. It means repainting the place so that no walls look old, and polish all wooden surfaces so that nothing looks used. Do not forget to paint the outside as well. You need to have a brand new-looking house which will be desired by many visitors. The newer the house looks, the more its value rises, so the better job you do, the higher the price you can ask for is. Add new furniture, and make it either classical, or new and stylish, but do not buy second hand old and used items. Add new appliances, give it a brand new fridge and a shiny oven. Add decorations and adornments. Everything you add will add to the value.
Step 4. Check efficiency.
You need to go through every single room and every single item in the room to make sure that everything is fine, clean, and in good working order.
Step 5. Get a real estate agent.
Get somebody who is aware of the prices of houses on the market and somebody who has access to buyers in your price range. That is your target buyer and you need good representation.
