When you’re selling your home, providing potential buyers with something special will lead to a quick sale. You’re trying to connect emotionally; to give them a reason to buy what you’re selling. Maybe it’s a lower price tag that helps your home stand out. Maybe it’s a location in a particularly desirable neighborhood. Or, perhaps it’s an amenity or an upgrade that makes your home especially attractive.

You want to sell for the highest possible price, and you want to sell your home quickly so it’s not languishing on the market.
Here are some tips for maximizing your home’s value. These ideas will likely help you sell your home faster – and for more money.

Upgrade Your Appliances
Buyers know that they’re getting the appliances that come with the house. Make that a selling point. Instead of offering your house as-is, with appliances that are decades old, install new energy-efficient appliances that will attract buyers. New appliances are more attractive, and the prospect of lower
energy bills will make potential buyers more likely to make an offer. Stainless steel is a good idea and will increase the value of your property. A kitchen that’s move-in ready and modern, with a new fridge and a dishwasher, will get the attention of buyers. Washers and dryers that use less water and electricity will also increase your value and your asking price.

Keep Floors and Paint in Good Condition
As potential buyers come through your home, they’ll notice the floors they’re walking on. Hard surface flooring, in general, is more popular than carpet. Hardwoods are especially great when you’re selling a home, but there are also some high-quality laminates and faux wood blends that can make your place
look great and attract buyers. Hard surface floors make a difference in your home value and asking price because they’re safer and cleaner, particularly for buyers who may have allergies. Carpet fibers trap allergens such as dust and pet hair. Hard floors are also easier to maintain. You’ll attract a larger pool of buyers when your offering tile, laminate, and wood floors rather than a home that’s completely carpeted. Don’t forget about the value of a fresh coat of paint. This will give potential buyers the impression that your home is modern, clean, and move-in ready.

Create Curb Appeal with Attractive Landscaping

Curb appeal counts when you’re selling a home. Potential buyers will likely drive or walk by your home when they know it is for sale, before they schedule a showing. They need to see a property that’s inviting and attractive. Invest in curb appeal upgrades. Make sure your landscaping is in good condition. Your lawn has been freshly mowed, and there should not be any debris or trash taking up space in your yard. This is a good time to sweep branches and leaves off the roof. Clean out the gutters. Consider power washing the home if it needs to look brighter and cleaner.

Trimmed trees, flower beds that are mulched and weeded, and a few well-chosen outdoor elements will make your home stand out in the market and help you earn a little more money on your asking price. Take a look at other properties that are currently on the market. What are you competing against? If
they all have granite counters and garden bathtubs, you might need to consider including these elements as well. These are some of the best general suggestions we can make when you want to increase the value of your home in preparation for selling it. For some specific suggestions about your home,
