How to Sell Your Home for More at No Additional Cost

How to get cost-free home upgrades to sell your home for more

Selling a home can be daunting. Regardless of the size of the home or the yard, the fact remains that you’ve invested a lot of time, money, and effort to turn your house into a home. When the day comes that you decide to sell it, the first thing that comes to your mind will be how you can maximize your home sale to make all those years of investment and home improvement worthwhile. However, giving your home the necessary upgrade and cosmetic facelift that it needs to increase its value can be costly.

Luckily for you, we can help you sell your home for more and at no additional cost, regardless of the type of upgrade or cosmetic repair it may be. Here are five tips we follow when we help people buy or sell their homes:

1. Vacate your home. We highly recommend home sellers or their tenants to vacate the home as soon as it’s listed on the market, and not wait until it is sold. Having people still living in the house will turn off potential buyers, so vacating the home will make the house easier to access and make the house showing process a lot easier. This will also give way for the decluttering process and make the repairs and upgrades easier to do.

2. Declutter. Once the home is vacated, you can proceed to decluttering. Since you will be leaving your home in the future once it is sold, it is best to start packing early and remove all personal items and furniture from the house.

3. Deep clean. You want to make sure that the house looks good and smells good to attract buyers, so having it deep cleaned from top to bottom, at every nook and cranny, is one of the things that we highly recommend prior to listing the home.

“If you choose a listing package with us, we include the home staging, remodeling, and cosmetic repairs at no additional cost to you as we can get paid back once the home sale is closed.”

4. Cosmetic repair. Apart from necessary repairs around the house, cosmetic repairs and improvements will also significantly increase your home’s aesthetic value, which attracts interested buyers. This includes repainting, re-wallpapering, carpeting, and the like.

5. Remodel. If necessary, remodeling will also significantly increase your home’s selling potential as it would give your home a dramatic facelift, making it look new and more inviting. Remodeling often involves the kitchen and bathroom. But if you’re unsure whether you should remodel certain areas of your home or not, you can consult a real estate professional.
