Selling a house is an exciting process. After all, there's the promise of shifting from your current humble abode to a property that's better suited to your needs. Whether it's time for a new neighbourhood or simply a bigger home, there's plenty to anticipate.

However, don't go forgetting about your current property like a lover cast aside. Wrapping up your current real estate relationship with grace before moving onto a better property is essential.

 

 

Making your property look as attractive to potential buyers as it once was to you is important. Even if it no longer suits your circumstances, it could be the perfect home for a young couple or professional looking to get onto the property ladder. Play up its important features and be sure to consider some of these affordable tweaks to boost interest during open inspections.

Ever So Glossy

Living in a residential property with timber floors? This is a feature that you should play up! However, if your flooring is looking a little worse for wear, it's going to stand out like a sore thumb rather than a knight in shining armour.

Invest in a wood stain if the floor is looking a bit patchy and apply it per the instructions. However, whether you choose to tint the timber or not, be sure to polish it up before applying a glossy topcoat.

 

 

Perhaps your living room or lounge is currently carpeted, but there is some top-quality wooden flooring beneath this. In such a scenario, you might consider lifting up the carpet - particularly if it's worn or the colour is dull - and polishing up the natural wonder beneath.

Light up Your Life

If your home is feeling dark and dingy, it might be worth evaluating your lighting options.

For instance, you might need to replace the bulbs if living spaces are about as bright as a dungeon. Secondly, take a look at the fittings. If they fit the general aesthetic of the property, you can probably leave them as is.

 


However, if the fittings look dated or are in poor condition, it might be time to ditch them and replace them with a more contemporary design.

Whether it's a simple, white lampshade or brushed metal wall-mounted fittings, there are plenty of fittings on the market that will transform key spaces in your home without breaking the bank.

Ditch the Nicks

No matter the room, if there are nicks on the walls, your home will instantly look shabby.

You'll need to consider carefully whether to simply paint over dents and nicks in the wall with paint, or run a complete paint job. The latter option might be a bit more expensive and time consuming, but the results could be worth it.
