The condition of your property plays a very important role in your visual assessment. The property must be renovated in order to impress potential buyers. The opinion of a third party must always be welcome, your opinion as the owner is not impartial and it is customary to see as normal situations that must be changed and thus increase the value of the property. Below we present a checklist that will help you increase the visual value of a property:

  • Clean the property thoroughly.
  • If you have carpeting, hire a cleaning service or install a new one.
  • The emptier the property, the better.
  • The walls should be clean and well painted. Light colors are more favorable to the spaces, because they allow to appreciate the property’s true size. On the contrary, dark colors diminish the visual appreciation of the building.
  • If it is a house, it is recommended to keep the parking or garage available for the visitor to park.

The potential buyer should be made to feel at home.

  • Eliminates odors. Eliminating the smell of cigarette, pets or incense increases the value of a property and the opposite depreciates it. It is important to know that if you smoke and have pets, your sense of smell will be used to the smell and will not detect it. Allows a third party to evaluate if your house smells good and proceed accordingly.
  • Clean and empty cabinets.
  • Keep the property unoccupied at the time of the visit.
  • Keep all lighting functional.
  • Keeping bottled water in the fridge and offering it does not hurt
