Getting Creative To Sell Your Property.

I bet you’re tired before you’ve even finished this first sentence, aren’t you? Yes, well, selling a property is an exhausting task. There’s an ever-competitive market out there, and buyers are getting a little demanding because of it, especially securing a vacant property. Given the financial situation over recent years, you might be struggling to sell your old home, or any of your properties, if you’re a developer, at the value you’d like. In some locations, or with specific types of property, you might be struggling to sell the place at all.

What’s the solution then? Well, for me, I found the answer was to get creative. If you want to catch people’s eye, then catch their eye. Don’t copy what every developer in the area has done. Don’t be ordinary. Here are some tips, if you’re still not quite sure what that means.

Start from scratch.

You heard me correctly. I’m talking about a complete overhaul. Don’t worry about cost, because that’s not what we’re talking about here. We’re talking about design. Of course you can’t feel creative when you’re looking at a cluttered house that you might have owned for years, even with your family, or through renting it out to others. It’s hard to work around the mess and the worn-out furnishings.

The best way to think of new ideas then, is to picture a blank slate. Think about what you’d do with a property if it was brand new, and you could design every last aspect of it. Then, you can work around that core concept with your existing property. Throwing out old furniture doesn’t have to be costly, and nor does investing in new furniture. Still, it’s a worthy investment either way. The layout of a room can entirely transform a house and pump up the value instantly. You’ll more than receive returns on your investment. Plan your perfect design on paper first, and then make it a reality.

Get some modern gear in there.

Once you’ve sorted the basics and you have a nice, clean, fresh house, you’ll want to think about amping up the value through little bonuses. It’s all about the modern touch, if you want to create a contemporary feel. Technology is a brilliant way of achieving this, because it signifies cutting-edge development without costing you an arm and a leg (if you know what you’re buying and you know where to look).

You can transform everything in your house, if you really put some thought it. You could even get some help with your garage, and click here to see some great new tech for remote-controlled doors. That’s the kind of thing that’ll turn a boring, cluttered space into hours of endless entertainment for the family. Well, of course, I’m assuming there will be other forms of entertainment in your house, but you know what I mean.

Transform the front and back garden.

This is crucial. The biggest missed opportunity for property sellers is the front of the house. Like any business, you need to make a good first impression. If a retail shop had a boring, messy or old store-front, people wouldn’t ever go in. You want to spruce up your garden and lure in potential buyers.

Remember, adding value to your home is all about the level of effort you put into it. If you update everything, you’ll find that you’ve instantly transformed an old, worn building into a brand new, desirable property.

    Great ideas. My son just got his house ready to sell so he could buy my mom’s house. He did many of these things to get his house ready for the market. He sold it in about 3-4 months when it wasn’t a sellers market in our area. Great post.

    Good tips! I think some people either think more about the inside and some about the outside. But both need to be done for the greatest appeal to buyers.

    Great tips. When we were selling our house our agent told us to repaint the house. It seemed silly. Why not just give the new owners money back to paint the color they wanted. But I guess people come to a property and if the colors are off-putting they won’t buy. Although I think it is silly and cosmetics should not be in the decision making process, they sure are.

    Have never had to sell property, and rent, but completely agree about the front of the house first impression. It applies to rentals too. Whenever I’ve looked for rental houses, the first sight of the house can make me more excited about the rest of it or cast a negative pall over the rest of it.
