Top Tips to Make Your Home More Valuable and Sell Faster

 What items do you need to make your home more valuable and sell faster? That's a question many of you ask yourselves when you are trying to decide whether or not you should move.

If the answer is that you want to make it as easy as possible for someone else to buy your house, then you'll need some help from these top tips. This blog post will discuss how decluttering can be beneficial and not to do when deciding what goes in the living room, kitchen, or bedroom.

Finally, a few things will give potential buyers an impression of your home, so they know it is worth their time and money.

Declutter- but Don’t Depersonalize

Decluttering is key to making your home look and feel more spacious. However, you don't want to go too far and depersonalize the space. Make sure you keep some of your family's personality in there to make it feel like home sweet home.

You can declutter by following the following tips:

  • Get rid of any unnecessary furniture ornaments, and appliances
  • Store away any excess toys
  • Clear out the closets and cabinets
  • Hang pictures and mirrors to give the illusion of more space

Add a Fresh Lick of Paint

Adding a fresh lick of paint is the simplest and most effective way to make your home more valuable. Not only will it make the property look new and updated, but it can also help to cover up any existing damage or problems. It's best to choose a light and neutral color palette so that the home doesn't feel too 'themed' or specific to one era – this could put potential buyers off.

Fix and Clean

Cleaning your home is the first step to getting it ready for sale, but you need to be very careful not to go too far. It is easy to get carried away and start stripping wallpaper or ripping up floorboards, but unless your home has been neglected for years, these are unnecessary expenses that will not affect the final price of your house.

Switch off all appliances before cleaning them as this can cause damage; otherwise, take care around gas cookers and open fires – never use a wet mop near an open flame.

If there's any sign of dampness in the house, then fix it immediately: potential buyers could end up asking for a discount because they're worried about long-term problems. And if anything needs replacing, make sure you include this information in your sales particulars – buyers will appreciate knowing that they're not going to be hit with unexpected bills.

Make sure you clean the windows and doors and inside cupboards, drawers, and wardrobes: these are all quick jobs but make a big difference when potential buyers come around. Catching dirt in the corners of rooms can enhance their appeal, so don't neglect those areas. If your house has wooden floors, give them a thorough clean using an oil-based wood cleaner: this is much more effective than just mopping up dirty marks or spills because it penetrates deep into the grain of the flooring and brings out its natural sheen.


Adding the value of your home doesn't have to be complicated. It just takes a little bit of time and preparation before you put it on the market. Here are some simple things you can do to make your home more attractive for potential buyers, increasing its value to sell faster.
