One of the key considerations people make when it comes to selling their home is how much needs to be invested to get it to a “sell-worthy” standard. The areas that most people like to focus on is either the living room or the kitchen.
However, when it comes to value for money, the bathroom is arguably one of the better options, plus the sign of a clean, well kept bathroom is a silent psychological prompt to buyers of the state of the home; the better the bathroom, the better overall quality of the house.
So what are the key guiding tips to selling your home fast by using your bathroom as a guide? Here are just some tips to get your bathroom into that perfect “sell-worthy” standard.
Clear your countertops
When it comes to your bathroom, you need to remember that during a house sale, no one wants to think of visiting someone’s bathroom, but their own. Therefore, things like toiletries, hygiene products, toothbrushes, cotton balls – the usual things you’d have in your bathroom would put potential buyers off, so in that case; clear your countertops.
Build up your storage
This doesn’t need to cost you a lot of money but if you were going to put some cosmetic budget into your bathroom, then storage units are the way to go to. From under sink storage to even simpler storage items like wicker baskets you will find that you get maximum storage from little investment.
Be sure that your cupboards are only two thirds full so it appears that your cupboards are larger on the inside and get rid of any old items of furniture that is taking up unnecessary space.
Get the cleaning kit
Dirty bathrooms put buyers off with exceptional ease. Keeping a clean space is easy once you have a routine, so you want to be sure that the first big clean in your selling phase is thorough. Use soft bleach on items like your white goods, get your floors cleaned with the right cleaning products and ensure that your cleaning routine goes over the bathroom at least once a week.
You don’t need to pay a lot, and you can use sites like eBay or Etsy for more unusual patterns and colour choices but minor upgrades will do a lot when it comes to your bathroom.
From mirrors to a new sink or even taps and handles for the doors, anything that can give your house the look and feel of new and fresh, that will help a lot with the buyers as they will feel that the house could be moved into straight away.
Keep it neutral
The last tip for your bathroom has to be, keep the colours neutral. From paint work to cabinets, having a neutral tone will seem less personal and more inviting to the potential buyers.
