Tips for increasing the value of your home before you sell

March 31st, 2013  |  Insurance

So, you have decided to sell your home. But, before you put it up for sale you need to do whatever you can to not only increase the likelihood that it will sell, but also maximize the amount of value you get from your home.

Why not put in a little extra time and effort? If you do things right, you could significantly increase the amount of money you sell your home for.

Here are 4 very important tips that all homeowners should consider before selling their home:

  1. Get an appraisal: Getting your home appraised by a professional is a process that will open your eyes and provide you with some important information about your home.  Don’t be shy to ask what you can do to increase the value of your home before you sell.
  2. Get your home professionally staged: Staging will not only help to create the right atmosphere for your home, it will also help you to sell quicker and potentially sell for more money.
  3. Consider a renovation project: Many people undertake renovation projects before they sell to increase their asking price. From small project as simple as painting to more extensive renovations such as remodelling your kitchen or adding a fireplace, there are many renovation projects that will more than pay for your initial investment in the project.
  4. Understanding the market: If you have the flexibility, then one effective strategy to get more for your home is to simply wait for the right time. When you sell can play a major role in your ability to sell quickly and also receive your asking price.

What tips can you offer to homeowners who are getting ready to put their home on the market?
