It’s a sellers market in Orange County right now and if you ask any homeowner
who has sold there home recently or an Orange County real estate agent, they will tell you that the
difference between getting multiple offers on a home for sale and just a few offers all relates to
simple improvements that you can make to increase the value of your home.
Your Home Smells
The first and most basic tip that you should follow to increasing your homes value is to make sure that it smells good when potential buyers walk into the door. This tip is especially important if you have pets, you should walk through your home with a friend or family member before showing it just to make sure that they don’t smell anything potentially gross or nasty that might repel potential buyers. You also don’t want to go overboard with cleaning your home either because, using too many chemicals can also have the reverse effect and keep people out of your home because; it smells like a medical clinic.
Clean Those Windows
When they walk into your home, potential buyers will be envisioning themselves living there and
the first thing they will be looking out of are your homes windows. If your windows are dirty, they
will let in less light and make your home less appealing so, make sure you take the time to clean your
windows before showing your home. For windows that are hard to clean, try mixing vinegar with
water then using that mixture to clean them; this will leave your windows looking brand new!
Add Some Light
Inspect all light fixtures in your home and make sure that their light bulbs work, if any bulbs need
to be replaced, you should purchase new, eco friendly, LED bulbs because, these bulbs are generally
brighter and will save you money off your electric bill. Having a brighter home will make it feel more cheerful to potential buyers and appealing when they get ready to submit an offer.
