10 Solid Tips to Make More Money from the Sale of Your Home

Alright, so you’ve got the house on the market, and you’re just dying for that first visitor to come and take a look.  You think your house is great, but your viewers seem less than impressed.  The next potential buyers seem the same, as do the ones after that.  What’s the problem?  Well, it could be any number of issues from a cluttered look to lackluster curb appeal.  Luckily for you, your hard-to-please-viewers situation can be easily rectified with a little bit of time and effort.

The fact is that there aren’t very many homes around that don’t need at least a minor facelift before they go on the market for sale.  It’s imperative for you to quit thinking of your house as your home, but rather as an investment that is going to provide a great return.  That is, it can provide a great return if you can persuade someone to buy it.  Well, my friend, you are in luck!  That’s exactly what I’m going to help you figure out how to do.

Before we get into the nitty-gritty, I want to make certain that you understand a couple of things about selling houses.  Number one, your target consumers, your location and your actual existing structure have a lot to do with the market value of your home, among other complicated factors.  Some of the following suggestions work quite well across the board for pretty much anyone selling their home, such as painting.  On the other hand, some work better for specific sets of people.  

As such, don’t feel compelled to drop a ton of money on a project that might raise the value of your home, but that no one in your area is willing to spend money on.  Does that make sense at all?  For instance, a basement can greatly raise the value of a home, and some buyers are willing to pay more for that particular finished room according to the National Association of Realtors.  That’s great news for folks with existing basements.  However, if you live near an area where basements are virtually impossible to build, don’t go into the throws of grief because there’s no way you can possibly make this improvement.  Trust me; people in your area aren’t dead in after basements anyway.  We’ll find something else that buyers where you live are looking.   That will, in reality, increase the value of your home.
