Here's how to maximise the value of your home before you sell:
According to leading real estate industry figure John McGrath, the South East Queensland property market is tipped to be the strongest property market in Australia for the next five to six years.
That’s good news for homeowners because your house will be worth more but it also means increased competition as more and more people decide to sell up and cash in.
If you’re thinking of selling, it’s important that your house is the one that stands out (and for all the right reasons). Many buyers aren’t interested in putting more money and effort into a project after they’ve gone through the buying process, so presenting a home that’s modern and on trend can put you streets ahead of other houses for sale in your local area.
Here’s a few things to think about before you make the decision to sell:
Kitchens and bathrooms sell houses
For many people the kitchen is the most important room in the house and it’s certainly a focal point of the home. But an out-dated kitchen means you won’t maximise your sale price, and it can mean the difference between a buyer making an offer on your house or the one next door.
If you want to really add value and you have the floor plan and space to accommodate it, no kitchen is complete these days without a butlers pantry – it’s a great option for hiding away clutter and it doesn’t need to maintain the same designer look as the kitchen that is open for everyone to see.
The bathroom is another critical space in any home, so if yours is looking a bit worse for ware, don’t expect buyers to come rushing to your door.
