Paint the house neutral
A new home is a fresh start and what better way to picture your new life in your new home than a blank canvas. Walls painted in dark colours of covered in busy wall paper can make a room seem much smaller than it really is.
By painting the walls in your home in a light neutral colour not only does the room look lighter, it can also look bigger which is much more appealing to many looking to purchase a new property.
Refurbish the front door
As the saying goes, you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover but for all of us that do, the front door of a house will decide our first impression for us. The case for many properties is that there is nothing wrong with the door; it just needs a clean or a fresh coat of paint.
In other cases a new door will be the investment that you need to get your property to be the hot topic on the local property market.
Other ways the outside of your property can damage the appeal is by having missing and loose tiles on your roof. This will be a huge red flag to potential buyers as to somebody that doesn’t maintain or look after their property, therefore they will be far less likely to put down an offer. Fixing loose tiles is a quick job and can be completed by a local roofer. For more information on tile roof repairs, see this website.
