While market performance will largely influence this, presenting your home at its best will help. First impressions count from the moment potential buyers view a property from the street to the moment they walk through the front door. Weed the garden, cut back unruly shrubs and prune trees where needed. Kill off weeds in the lawn, sprinkle grass seed over bald patches and fertilise the lawn. Indoors, tidy up. Get rid of excess or bulky furniture, toys, books, hobby items or fitness equipment and if too many photos on the wall pack these away so the home looks roomy. If there is a gap or a room needs enhancing, look at what you have. A piece of furniture might be painted up or an old leather bound book popped on the coffee table. Shelves will also add depth to a narrow space while mirrors may give the illusion of a larger space. In entryways, add an easy chair, small table, bookcase or large vase. Awkward spaces such as coved ceilings in attics or upstairs rooms might be converted into storage shelving and the room given a purpose as an office, playroom or extra bedroom so viewers can see how the room might be used. Stow possessions neatly in containers, shelving or tidily in cupboards; highlighting the storage potential within the home, ensuring it is clean and tidy for viewing at any time. Move the pets outside as not all buyers will be pet lovers while some may suffer pet allergies putting them off a house if they see a pet inside.

Replace tired cabinetry, or the benches and cupboard/drawer fronts then update old toilets, showers or kitchen appliances. Modernising these rooms can lift the final selling price. Use consistent and light paint colours throughout for balance and seamlessness, making the house appear more spacious. An effect that is increased when walls and curtains share the same or a similar colour. Consider the personality and purpose of a room. Bright colours lift living areas especially if large and open. However, bedrooms are suited to calmer softer colours with just a touch of bold. Layer bedding or use throws for effect along with cushions or a stuffed toy in a children’s room. With curtaining, smaller patterns or plain fabrics are the rule for smaller rooms whereas larger patterns make spacious areas cosier. If blinds or drapes are past their best, replace these even if it is only with neutral cotton curtains. The effect will be worth it. Eco-friendly features will also add value for some buyers though not universally, however earthy natural colours and features are popular. Consider who your target buyers are likely to be and what will appeal to them. Your Earthquake damaged home! Talk to us if you are serious about selling your “As is Where is” home.
