    So, you’re getting ready to sell your home – and you want to fetch the highest possible sale price.

    Short of giving your property a top to toe reno – which can be both time-consuming and expensive! – there are a few ways you can add extra value to your home, virtually instantly.

    Here’s what you need to know…

    Replace your lightbulbs

    There’s no question that light and bright homes sell better. In fact, for many buyers, poor light is often a dealbreaker! So to help ensure your home is giving off the right (light!) vibe, replace any lightbulbs which are a little dim. If your home is lacking in natural light, think about how you can add some extra elements to lighten up the space – think floor or table lamps, and remove any heavy curtains and blinds ahead of your open homes.

    Switch up your switches

    Once you’ve replaced your lightbulbs, turn your attention to your light switches and switch plates. These are often areas which are considered “heavy use” and so can easily look tired, and dirty! Replacing them is super simple, and can go a long way to adding extra value to your home.

    Touch up your paint

    While there’s nothing better than a fresh lick of paint to breathe new life into a home, if you don’t have the time – or energy! – to completely repaint, simply touch up those areas which need it most. Look at the “heavy traffic” areas of your home, as well as details like skirting boards or doorways. Sometimes all that’s required is a little touch-up!

    Freshen up your fixtures

    Trust us, when it comes to adding value to your home, details count! And your buyers will certainly take notice of things like your fittings and fixtures. Add a little luxe to your home by swapping your tired taps for metallic tapware in gold or copper tones. Or, replace any lacklustre handles in your kitchen, bedroom or bathroom with something a little more modern.

    Turn to a property stylist

    The quickest way to add value to your home is to invest in property styling. By turning to the experts, you can rest assured that your home is prepped and primed in order to maximise its appeal to potential homebuyers. At BOWERBIRD, our property stylists will take care of everything for you – hand-selecting furniture and accessories best suited to your home, and removing everything again once you sell!
