If you are getting ready to list your Denver home for sale there are a few things you can do to easily increase its value. After all, your goal is to get as much for it as possible, right? These tips will also come in handy if your Denver home has been for sale for a while, but is not receiving the bids you are looking for.
1. Step Out to the Curb
What type of first impression does your Denver home give? Curb appeal plays a huge role in setting the tone for your property and many buyers decide within seconds if they are going to like the house before they even walk through the door. Look at your Denver home as if you are seeing it for the first time and take steps to make it look like it is worth your asking price. This may be as simple as sweeping the walk way, adding a couple pots of flowers, and trimming the hedge.
2. Give the Kitchen a Facelift
The kitchen is a trigger point for many buyers. This room sees a lot of action; it is where a lot of cherished memories are made. Reface cupboard doors, update your counter, and install new lights, faucets, and hardware.
3. Play with Light
Lighting is vital in making sure the beauty of your Denver home is appreciated. Not every buyer is going to be there at 9 am to see the natural light pouring through your picture window. Your lighting options will get noticed. It is also important to make sure the wattage is appropriate for the space. Adding an attractive lamp to a dark corner will be helpful in making the room look larger and energetic.
4. Spruce up the Bathroom
After the kitchen, the bathroom is the next room that should receive a little attention. You don’t necessarily need to do an entire remodel. Even fresh paint or wallpaper and new fixtures will make a difference. Investing in a new toilet seat and updated vanity can help, and if the grout needs to be done this should definitely be on your to-do list.
5. Reconfigure Space
Is your furniture positioned the best way for the space? Sure, you love the sofa on an angle in the living room corner, but is this dwarfing the room? Remove clutter, and this includes unnecessary furniture, so the room becomes the center of attention, not everything in it taking up space.
It may seem counterproductive to put time and money into a house you are selling. However, when you receive quality bids in line with your asking price, you will be glad you tackled these minor projects!
