You might believe that spending time and money on renovating your home just before placing it on the real estate market is a waste of time but it could in inctuality help you to secure a higher offer. Not every buyer will want to necessarily refurbish the entire home they are buying and would prefer to pay money towards a property which needs little work so they can just move into it immediately. So if you are struggling to sell your home at the moment it might be worthwhile to upgrade a few areas around your home to help encourage a sale. 

Upgrade Kitchen Facilities 

Your kitchen is one of the main selling points of your home to buyers so any little tweaks you can make to freshen it up will be worthwhile. You do not need to replace all the kitchen cabinets for example. If they are in good condition it can be useful to just replace the door handles instead to freshen up the look a little. 

Upgrading the faucets can be useful as well. Faucets Canada has a good selection including touch free ones which are more hygienic and easy to use, which is certainly appropriate in Covid-19 times. 

Clean the Carpets

If you have carpet on the staircase or in any room of the house and it is looking a little tired, instead of replacing it with a brand new one, just hire out a carpet cleaning machine to give it a good clean. You will be surprised at how much dirt can gather in the carpet fibres which over time alters the original color. It could even look like new after a thorough clean. The buyers that come to visit will be more impressed if the condition of the flooring is looking like new instead of thinking it is another feature they need to replace. 

Small Improvements to the Bathroom 

The bathroom is another area of the home that buyers will certainly be looking at in more detail. A fresh and clean looking bathroom will certainly be more appealing than a room that has mouldy grouting, peeling paint and worn out flooring. So tackle any grouting issues by applying a new coating of sealant and paint the walls if they are either peeling or have visible water stains. The addition of a new shower curtain is also worthwhile to freshen up the room. 

Paint the Front Door

You want to make a good impression before they even set foot in your home, so by making the front of your home more appealing this will encourage buyers to venture indoors. Give the door knocker, letterbox, and door handle a good polish. It is also worth repainting the front door with a fresh coat of paint so it does not look run down and tired. You could also add some vibrant flowers to brighten up the exterior and make it more appealing.
