1. Repaint

To get a hefty raise on your house’s value you need to repaint your house with a fresh lick of paint. Painting your house will cover up any cracks that gives your house the features of an old decrepit building. Painting your house with a modern colour also helps increase the value of your house so be careful of the colour you pick to repaint a room or house. Dark colours in a room will give the appearance of a small room, so to ensure a good sale, you need to repaint your rooms in a lighter colour.

2. Trim the bushes and do some gardening

Your garden is the first thing any potential buyer will see. That’s why you need to clean up your garden and pull out the weeds. Basic fixes like trimming your bushes and trees, cutting the grass and sweeping the pavement will make a big difference to your home’s appearance.

3. Fix all those small things

All those small fixes that you’ve been swearing to fix for the last few years should be fixed as soon as possible. You’ll be amazed how people pick up the smallest repairs in a home that still need to be done. They’ll use all of those fixes as ammo to use to decrease your house value.

4. Tile or install wooden floors in your home

Ripping out the carpet and installing wooden floors or tiles floor will give your house a considerable boost in value. Wooden floors, as well as tiled floors, give your home a modern look and it’s easier to clean.

5. Have a professional property agent sell your house

When you are ready to put your house in the market you need a professional to help you sell your home. They have all the right connections as well as great advertising spaces to display your home on. They also know exactly on what features to focus on when selling your home and can recommend a few changes to your home to increase the value of your home even more.

You can also add your home to free advertising sites such as Gumtree, olx and other local classified ad pages. Spreading the word about your home being up for sale is the key to having a fast sale so that you can move into your new home. At the end you might not even want to move out of your current home after all the fixes.
