With the real estate market being in full force in Vancouver at the moment, there is no better way to increase your home’s value then to add a few economical updates. Below is a list of worthwhile property updates to get you ahead of the game when you’re trying to sell your home:
- Curb appeal – This is probably the most familiar term associated with real estate, but it holds the title for a reason. As prospective buyers arrive, it is very important that the exterior paint is bright, modern and inviting.
- Quality interior paint – While they can look fresh and clean, purely white walls are sterile and don’t elicit a feeling and comfort and ‘home’. Try a lighter, stylish colour that makes the space feel modern, but also is not so bold that it’s a turn-off for prospective buyers. Warm and neutral is a good direction to take.
- Bathrooms and kitchens – If you have a limited budget for updates, focus your efforts on the bathrooms and kitchen. These are the primary selling points of your property, and either can work powerfully for or against you.
- Think bigger than exterior paint alone – As mentioned, exterior paint is hugely important. But, in addition to paint, wood repairs, general landscaping, and a fresh power washing can go a long way to boost the attractiveness of your home.
