How to Maximise the Price of your Property

After spending years turning your house into a home, it’s easy to take certain things for granted – things that, to potential buyers, could be bringing its price down.

It goes without saying that the price of your property plays a major part in the sale. To make sure that it is maximised to its full potential, we thought we’d give you some tips to follow:

Clean Everything

When trying to sell your property, take your cleaning routine up a notch. Consider your home to be a temporary showroom – after all, you are trying to sell it. Wash the floors, sterilise toilet bowls, remove cobwebs from the ceiling, and give your glassware, silverware, mirrors, and windows a good polish. Leaving anything unclean will put people off and give them the impression that there’s more work that needs to be done than there actually is.

Make Sure It’s Brightly Lit

If the viewing happens during daylight, all curtains and blinds should be open to let in as much natural light as possible and show off any views, outdoor spaces, and surroundings. Mirrors are also a great way to help reflect the light, so see if you can add some to the rooms in a way that would enhance them. Also try to switch up any dark or busy soft furnishings with lighter and more neutral shades.

If It’s Broken, Fix It

We all know that buyers try to haggle, and broken things will give them further ammunition. Anything that isn’t looking or functioning the way it should – from squeaky doors and floorboards to flickering lightbulbs and chipped wood or tiles – should be fixed before you invite any viewers over.

Update Your Kitchen & Bathroom

Many rooms like bedrooms and living spaces are very personal, so new residents will undoubtedly make any changes necessary to feel more at home. When it comes to kitchens and bathrooms, a full revamp is probably the last thing they’d do, given that it’s such a cost and hassle to do so. Of course, this doesn’t mean that you should buy a new kitchen prior to putting your house up for sale, but a new lick of paint, polished cupboards and handles, and maybe an updated countertop will make a world of a difference.

Add Street Appeal

Most people looking for a house will know if it’s the right one within seconds of seeing it in person. This is why you need to make sure that your house doesn’t only look great from the inside, but from the outside too. Fix up the façade as best as you can – from the pathway and front door to the paint work, and see that it looks as welcoming as possible.

We also recommend that you find the time to go to an open house viewing and take note of the things that catch your attention; both positive and negative. This is a great way of opening your mind and realising what you can do better to increase your property’s value and, moreover, your chance of selling it.

There are many steps that you can take towards maximising the price of your property, and these five tips are a great start. You can also ask your local real estate agent in Malta to guide you accordingly.

What’s your house worth?

Determining your house value is an important step in selling your property. What’s the point of selling at a high price, when competing vendors can easily beat you? Market-friendly prices guarantee you will sell your house in no time. RE/MAX creates estimates thanks to cutting edge technology which filters through a constantly updated database of the real estate market, to compile comparative market analyses (CMA). This allows for RE/MAX to offer real-time valuations for your property.
