Selling Tips

The Rebecca Philips Selling Tips 

  1. De-Clutter 
  2. Music, it’s been proven that light classical music makes buyers stay longer and spend more 
  3. Lifestyle, most buyers are looking to purchase a lifestyle. The way your home looks will make a significant impression  
  4. Maximize street appeal, during spring and summer months consider planting some annual, perhaps pots near the front door  
  5. Space is important, remove any excess furniture, remember less is more  
  6. Gardens, many buyers look for a garden but not a lot of work, make sure its not overgrow, looks neat and tidy. Good looking gardens will add value 
  7. Light is essential, if it doesn’t exist look for ways to create it such as a lamp 

Adding Value to Your Home 

Following this will help to add value to your home...

 Clean, organise, and neutralise your space: Unclutter your property to make it look bigger and cleaner. Buyers need to be able to envision their own belongings in the home; so, avoid using bright colors and too many personal effects. 

Keep Your Lawn Green: Get your lawn in shape. A patchy lawn takes away from the home's overall appearance. Your local garden centre has supplies to re-seed/turf those unhealthy areas. 

Add insulation to save energy: The most inexpensive way to increase your home's energy is to add insulation, which can reduce heating and cooling costs by more than 25%. 

Update kitchen appliances: The kitchen is often the room that buyers gravitate towards first, and an updated kitchen can help sell your home. You don't have to remodel your kitchen to give it a new look. Updating your appliances to the current standard and replacing cabinet doors or benchtop can make a big impact at a relatively low cost. 

Update bathroom fixtures: A little change can go a long way when it comes to the look of your bathroom. Updating simple fixtures such as your sink and taps can give any outdated bathroom style. 

Build a fence: If you're trying to sell a house, the appearance of a fence adds value to the home overall. Buyers with children or pets will appreciate the privacy and security of an enclosed backyard. 

Repair leaking gutters: Ensuring that your gutter is clean is crucial in protecting your home against water damage. 

Light up the outside: An easy and inexpensive way to increase your home's outdoor space is to add lighting. It makes it more appealing and safer. 

Store and organise: Ample storage space is a plus, especially when it comes to garages and cupboards. Efficient cupboard spaces can help keep your clothes organised and can save space.
