Preparing your home for a house Valuation
Posted on 12th April 2023
When it comes to selling your home, the first step is getting a house valuation from an estate agent.
But before you get in contact with an estate agent, there are some things that you need to consider in order to get the best possible advice and price for your property.
This blog post will discuss how homeowners can prepare their property for a house valuation and why it's so important to do so.
De-Clutter Your Home
When preparing your home for a valuation, the first thing you should do is de-clutter it as much as possible. This means removing any unnecessary items such as toys, books, ornaments, and other knick knacks that might be lying around.
By doing this, you will make your house look more spacious and inviting, which will help to increase its value. You should also try to clear away any furniture that may be blocking walkways and make sure all rooms are easily accessible.
Make Sure Your Kitchen and Bathroom are Up-to-Date
Your kitchen and bathroom are two of the most important rooms in the house when it comes to Valuations—so they need to be up to scratch!
Make sure all surfaces are clean and tidy, check that all taps are working properly, replace any broken tiles or cracked grout in the bathroom, and give both rooms a fresh coat of paint if necessary.
Even small improvements like these can make a big difference when it comes time for the estate agent to give you their assessment of your property’s worth.
Cleanliness is Key
Of course, no matter what room you’re trying to prepare for a valuation—whether it’s your kitchen or living room—cleanliness is key!
Vacuum carpets where necessary, sweep away cobwebs from high corners of ceilings or walls (especially if they're visible), dust off shelves and surfaces with a damp cloth or duster, scrub windowsills until there's no dirt left on them…you get the idea!
All these small touches will help create an attractive atmosphere in your home that potential buyers won’t be able to resist.
Preparing your home correctly before getting a house valuation is essential if you want the best possible advice from the estate agent about how much your property is worth.
De-cluttering always helps create an inviting atmosphere while making sure the kitchen and bathroom are up-to-date can really boost its value too!
And finally don't forget - cleanliness is key when it comes time for viewing day!
If homeowners take all this into consideration then they should have no problem getting top dollar for their property when it eventually goes on sale - win win!
