Most people just clean their homes before putting it up for sale. This is fine if the property they are selling is in very good condition—working bathroom, nice kitchen,  no holes in the ceiling, etc. However, if you are selling a house with several defects, or looks really faded, then you may not be able to sell it at the best price, if you can sell it at all.

Remember the property market is a highly competitive arena. If you don’t have the edge over your competitors, you will not get the sale.  This is why before you sell your house, it is a good idea to renovate it first so it will look its best.  The best part is you do not have to renovate the entire house to increase its value. There are areas in the house that many buyers consider important and these are the areas you should renovate and improve.


The kitchen usually factors high on buyers list. It’s a mystery because even those people who don’t cook actually give a lot of importance to the state of your kitchen. If your kitchen is cramped up, uninspiring, stressful, then that could be the reason potential buyers shake their heads. Renovate your kitchen to make it organized, relaxing and a pleasure to be in.  Maybe you should add some more shelves or cabinets. Buyers also love a well-designed center table with marble countertops, elegant looking faucets and working sinks.  Renovate your kitchen and get a high score from potential buyers.


Everyone loves a good, relaxing bath. You’ll notice that when people look for a house to buy, they would never skip checking out the bathrooms. The truth is, the bathroom could make or break the sale of a home. You should renovate the bathroom to increase its size a little bit, change the old and moldy tiles and sinks, and add modern features that it may lack like a tub. A comfortable bathroom will increase the value of your home as well as its appeal.


Every livable space is worth something when selling a home.   That is why home sellers renovate their attic into a livable room. It’s a big plus for both your home’s value and appeal to potential buyers. Renovating your attic may cost a little, but it will also increase the value of your home a lot.

Walls (repaint)

Believe it or not, one of the biggest parts of the house is the walls. It’s what most people see first when they enter your house to check it out. The walls give potential buyers their first impression of your house. If the walls are broken down, with paint peeling off and there are holes on it, buyers may get out of your home before they even look further. Repair and repaint the walls of your home with clean and relaxing colours to improve its looks.  This will surely impress people who want to buy your home.

Renovating your house is a very good idea if you plan to sell it. Sure it costs money, but it’s an investment with good returns. Contact a reliable renovation company for all your renovations, to ensure quality of work.
