If you are looking to upgrade your home in order to sell it, it’s just as important to know what not to do as what will work. The following 5 upgrades won’t cut it when you go to sell – in fact, they may even put buyers off and then you will never be in the position to book a furniture mover like Brilliance Removalists Perth. That said, if you intend to stay in the house, these upgrades could really make a difference to your lifestyle – if they are something you and your family would like and use.
- Installing a swimming pool. While this is sure to excite your kids, it can very well turn other people off. Not everyone likes swimming and seeing a pool simply means ‘more maintenance’ to many people. Real estate agents agree that adding a pool to your property immediately cuts out certain people groups as potential buyers. Elderly people; couples with toddler/a baby, because they feel a pool is dangerous to them; people on a strict budget who don’t want the expense of maintenance and property investors who don’t want it because all those reasons make it harder to sell.
- Really extravagant fixtures and fittings. While a lot of these may be seen on home renovations and improvement programmes on TV, they don’t work for the general public. Why? Not everyone likes those specific styles. They have their own idea of how the house should look and want that, so they won’t pay extra for a house that has them.
