How is a home's value determined?
Many factors go into determining a home’s market value, including the condition of the property, the location, square footage, recent comparable sales, amenities and other factors. Your listing agent is the most qualified to evaluate your home and arrive at an accurate selling price based on the current market and vast array of industry resources.
How can I increase the value of my home?
Whether you’re thinking of doing a major remodeling or just sprucing up your place with a fresh coat of paint, there are many ways to make your home more appealing to buyers while adding both perceived and real value. Adding bedrooms and doing kitchen and bathroom renovations/upgrades can yield substantial price increases. Features like high ceilings, ceramic tile and wood floors, a sitting area in the master bedroom, a laundry room and central air also contribute to value. Yet not every improvement has to cost a lot. There are simple things you can do too like washing the walls and windows, eliminating clutter, installing new window treatments, shampooing carpets, modernizing light fixtures, refinishing the kitchen cabinets and upping the wattage of light bulbs to create a brighter ambiance.
Does staging a home help it sell for more?
Your home is your most valuable asset, so of course when the time comes to sell, you want to do everything you can to make it most attractive and get the highest price possible. Research shows that well-staged homes can sell approximately 32% faster than those that are non-staged, plus often command higher sale prices of up to 10% more. Homes that are properly staged make a great first impression. It’s all about selling a lifestyle, and it’s proven that homes which exude warmth, elegance, romance and sex appeal sell fastest. Staging helps paint a picture for buyers so they can imagine themselves entertaining, relaxing or cooking dinner in the space. Staging can involve anything from putting a new color on the wall or boxing up knick knacks to rearranging furniture or bringing in new décor. Your agent will work with you to find staging solutions to optimize your apartment’s appeal.
