Now that you have made the decision to sell your Markham home, you want to make sure that it doesn’t sit on the market any longer than necessary. To increase your chance of getting an offer and making a quick sale, here are some design tips for you to try.
Spruce up Your Entranceway to Make a Great First Impression
Set a welcoming tone as soon as prospective buyers approach your home by making the front of your property as attractive as possible. Plant seasonal flowers and make sure that your shrubs and trees are pruned so that they look their best. The front door should be freshly painted or stained.
When buyers open the door and walk in, they will notice the little details. Add a small table near your front door and place a vase of fresh flowers on it. This touch will make your home look welcoming and could be the detail that helps to sell it.
Paint Your Kitchen a Neutral Tone
Your kitchen is the heart of the home, and prospective buyers will be particularly interested in this room. Give it a fresh coat of paint in a neutral colour to brighten it up. Changing out the cabinet knobs and drawer pulls can give it an updated look without breaking the budget. If you have more money to work with, consider replacing one of your major appliances with a stainless steel model. It will immediately make your kitchen look more modern, and give the remaining ones a more expensive look.
Clean Out Your Closets
Buyers are looking for plenty of closet space when they do a walk-through. Go through your closets and remove about half of your existing items. Put them in storage. You’ll open up your existing closet space and make it appear larger (and more attractive) to prospective buyers.
Maximize the Light Factor in Your Home
Open the drapes and blinds to let the light shine in during showings. Make sure that your windows have been freshly cleaned. Trim shrubs back to ensure that they don’t interfere with the level of light being admitted into your home. This is a major selling feature that can help you get offers on the table help your Markham home sell faster.
