Lowering Your Property’s Value
When you put your property up for sale, sidestep deterrents that will lower your home’s value. Prior to listing your home, assess any potential liabilities. Fix these sales price reducers, or they will cost you.
Brightly colored walls put some people off so be sure your home is painted in whites or neutrals. Anything that dates an older house—such as scuffed linoleum or mildewed fittings—is also a detriment to potential buyers. Overgrown hedges are another potential hindrance, so ensure the landscaping is trimmed.
Clutter is another potential problem. Too much of it will make your home seem more disordered and less spacious. Unburdening yourself of clutter boost your sales price, while making it easier for you to pack up and move once your home is sold.
