Selling property often seems like an easy task. After all, the real estate market is always flooded with buyers. However, the truth is that selling a property is often a challenging process. One of the best ways to ease the process is by conducting a few return-on-investment improvements to make your property stand out and guarantee a high selling price. So, what improvements should you consider? Below are some tips.
Customising the Home for a Niche Market
Conduct some background research to establish who is likely to purchase the property. The property could be expected to attract a niche market such as seniors or young-rich individuals. For example, if your market is senior citizens, you could lower the shelves to ensure they have an easy time accessing their items. Moreover, install rails and ramps to ensure seniors with mobility issues have an easy time accessing and navigating their way inside the property. You should also have senior-friendly bathrooms with anti-slip mats, a raised toilet seat, grab rails and an emergency alarm cord.
Conversely, suppose you intend to sell the property to young, wealthy individuals. In that case, you should install state-of-the-art entertainment and recreational facilities such as swimming pools, theatres and tennis courts. Besides, the property should have several bedrooms and lounges to ensure they have an easy time entertaining guests.
The home's interior must be breathtaking. Therefore, repaint the interior with warm colours, install high-quality floors and ceilings and ensure adequate light flow. Many buyers prefer open living designs. Consequently, you could pull down a few walls to adjoin the kitchen and living space. The kitchen is one of the most examined spaces by buyers. Therefore, consider a kitchen upgrade to improve its appeal and functionality. For example, you could consider a kitchen island, high-quality ovens, in-built refrigerators, adequate storage and working spaces.
Modern homeowners want to make the most out of their homes. Therefore, you should consider an independent guest wing. The wing proves valuable since it can be rented out to people looking for short-term accommodation. Moreover, it guarantees the owner's guests have the privacy they deserve.
Improving the House's Energy Efficiency
Buyers are always concerned about the long-term costs of maintaining the property. Consequently, you must ensure that the property has high energy efficiency. For instance, you could install seals around the walls and windows to prevent heat loss. Moreover, you could consider cladding and insulation to increase the property's thermal insulation. Finally, install large double-glazed windows and skylights to prevent the use of electricity during the day.
