If you are wondering how to increase the value of your home before selling, there are many options. When you are selling a home in Toronto, we are in a very expensive market in a Real Estate obsessed city. When a Buyer walks into a home you have one chance to make a first impression.  You want to present your home in the best light possible to attract the most amount of Buyers. Finding the right Real Estate partner is critical to ensure you get the most amount of money for your home when it’s time to list.

Below are some ways you can increase the value of your home, prior to selling:

Home Renovations

Freshly painted rooms can help your home look clean and updated. One of the simplest, most cost-effective improvements of all is a new paint job.  Refreshing your home with a light or neutral coat of paint can brighten up a room and make it look significantly better.

Three of the most valuable features in a home are kitchens, bathrooms, and the landscaping. Renovating or improving these spaces can be a good investment to help increase the value of your home. Most Buyers pay close attention to these components of a home and can be a huge selling point for them.

Having flooring replaced, kitchens and bathrooms renovated may sound like an impossible task to do prior to listing your home, but when you work with our Real Estate team like ours we can make it happen within a short turnaround time. We work on every listing with our team of trusted professionals so we can make sure you get the most amount of money for your home.

Stage Your Home for Viewings

If you want to sell a home quickly and for the best possible price, staging is one of the easiest ways to make it happen. Staging a home ensures that Buyers see it in its very best light, and can help illustrate what a property can offer without requiring a complete makeover.

Staging helps Buyers evaluate whether they can see themselves in a property and what the potential for space is. Whether it’s deep cleaning or small repairs that are needed, it’s important to make a positive first impression.

Staged homes are also depersonalized, which is important because Buyers don’t want to feel like they’re purchasing somebody else’s home. Buyers want it to be able to picture themselves in the home and make that personalized connection.

When contemplating any remodelling project, homeowners should consider the value they will add to the home and always deal with the important items first. When you work with us we offer complimentary home staging to maximize your home value when selling and you will have an entire team at your disposal.  Our professional home staging services go beyond just bringing in furniture. Before your listing is ready for prospective Buyers’ eyes, we make sure it’s been seen by our entire team for quality assurance.

Update Appliances

The kitchen is a major component when it comes to the most valuable home improvements. Having updated appliances can really improve the quality of your kitchen and benefit you when selling your home. When putting your home on the market, you are competing against the other properties in your area and having updated or newer appliances can be a great way to stand out.

There is a range of valuable home improvements you can make throughout your household that can add value to the selling price, from putting in stainless steel appliances to painting kitchen cabinets. Having an outdated kitchen can really hurt the value of your home when putting it on the market.

Add Energy-Efficient Amenities

Energy-efficient appliances are better for the environment, and they also help you save money because they use less energy. Adding sustainable and eco-friendly amenities can reduce monthly energy bills and help the environment. Energy Star Appliances can save up to 50 percent less energy and water than standard appliances. More and more homeowners are opting for sustainable living and amenities in their homes.

Energy-efficient amenities help reduce greenhouse gasses emitted into the atmosphere and reduce our consumption habits. It has been shown that people want to reduce their personal carbon footprint and the majority of it comes from the gasses we burn in our homes.  When doing home renovations keeping in mind energy-efficient amenities are not only great for the environment but can attract Buyers to your listing.
