2. Repairs and renovations
For many people, selling their home gives them the perfect opportunity to make minor repairs and touch ups they may have been putting off for a long time.
Doors that don’t shut property, holes in walls, peeling wallpaper and leaking taps are just some of the things that can turn off buyers and are relatively easy to fix.
And see that retro orange wallpaper over there that you love or are so used to that you forgot it's there? You may want to think about painting it a colour that will appeal to more people.
Major and costly renovations like bathroom upgrades can be a great way to make your home more appealing to buyers. But make sure you aren’t overcapitalising and that you'll be able to make your money back.
Ask your salesperson for advice or more information about renovations and repairs.
