Are you thinking about selling your Portland Oregon home in the coming months? If so, before you sell your home you should consider adding value to your home by following these simple Tips.
Tip 1 – Improve curb appeal – Focus on cleaning up your landscape, planting new flowers or trees, renovate or replace your mailbox and painting your fence.
Tip 2 – Paint your front door – Consider painting your front door a brighter color like red or yellow, or a mellow color like blue. This will help your front door to be more noticeable from the street and bring attention to your home.
Tip 3 – Renovate your porch – Take the time to show some love to your porch by power washing and or repainting it then investing in new deck furniture.
Tip 4 – Clean your windows – This is by far one of the most important, simple things you can do to add value to your Portland Oregon home because potential buyers will be looking out of those windows when they tour your home.
Tip 5 – Improve the flooring in your home – Rip out all old/outdated carpeting and replace with new carpet or wood flooring. Remember that buyers don’t like carpet in the bathroom so consider tile flooring for that room. Carpet is often desired in bedroom since most people like to have the feel of carpet under their feet in the morning when they wake up.
Tip 6 – De-clutter your home now – Start boxing up all old, or unused items and then place those boxes in storage to keep your home neat and clean.
Tip 7 – Clean thoroughly – Hire a professional cleaning company to thoroughly clean every inch of your home including the refrigerator, closets and medicine cabinets.
Tip 8 – Make sure your home smells great – Invite friends over to “smell your home” before you list it because, if your home smells “funky” you won’t ever smell it but your friends will.
Tip 9 – Add space to your home – Put down the sledgehammer and add space to your home by creating “conversation areas” by grouping small pieces of furniture together in spaces throughout your Portland Oregon Home. This will give the “illusion of space” while helping potential buyers to see that your home has a lot to offer them.
Tip 10 – Organize your home – Hire a professional organizer to come in and organize your home including the closets because, this will help buyers to see your home as efficient and spacious if they don’t see your stuff lying everywhere.
