Strategic Upgrade Plan for a Quick Sale

Curb Appeal Boost (Low Cost):

  • Landscaping: Spruce up with fresh mulch, colorful flowers, and trimmed bushes. A power wash can revive walkways and siding.
  • Entrance: Paint the front door or replace the doorknob for a welcoming touch.
  • Lighting: Update the porch light and consider path lights for a warm entrance.

High-Impact Interiors (Moderate Cost):

  • Neutral Paint: Fresh, light paint throughout creates an airy feel that most buyers love.
  • Kitchen/Bath Refresh: Focus on these key areas. Paint cabinets, replace hardware, or add a stylish backsplash. Consider countertop refinishing for savings.
  • Lighting Upgrade: Swap outdated fixtures for modern styles. Dimmer switches add a touch of class.

Smart Investments:

  • Minor Repairs: Fix leaky faucets, loose knobs, and chipped paint. Buyers appreciate a move-in ready feel.
  • Stage It: Declutter and arrange furniture to create spaciousness. Consider professional staging for maximum impact.

What to Fix When Selling a Home

About to sell a house without a thorough pre-sale cleaning at all? Bad idea. To move forward and list a property for sale with no cleaning beforehand is a huge slip down.

There are many ways to boost the value of a property – from stiff repair costs to endless DIY improvements. Believe it or not, a few minor touch-ups can impress potential buyers and increase the price.

Too busy to stay on top of chores?
Does time tick away?

Truth is, you should never give up on cleaning a house to prep for a sale!
Otherwise, you risk ditching some good profits.

Losing money could happen because of renovations lowering the property value, a scam for inaccurate valuation of the property, and many other mistakes.

At Go Cleaners London we know that you should clean a house before listing it for sale, or you could lose a deal.

For expert help, consider our one-off cleaning service or the in-depth professional tenancy cleaning treatment we do for tenants and landlords. Depending on how severe you have it, both can do wonders. We also do amazing carpet cleaning using hot-water extraction cleaning technology.

What not to fix when selling a house

When you get ready to sell your home and move on, your to-do list expands, and quickly. That’s why you should take any unnecessary tasks off your plate.

While you may not want to sell a house in poor condition and you should do what you can to make your home as appealing as possible to buyers, some efforts just don’t get the most bang for their buck or justify the work they require.

Before you hire a contractor or head to Home Depot, here’s a guide to what not to fix, so you can focus your time, money, and energy on other parts of the home selling process.
