When you are getting your home ready to sell, it is very important to keep your home as clean as possible. You are more likely to get a high closing price for your property if you have a lot of interested buyers, and a clean home is an essential part of making your home look appealing. You get many benefits from making sure your home is clean.
Make Your Home Look Bigger
Clutter and dark lighting makes rooms in your property look tiny. Proper organization will clear clutter out of the way, and a good window cleaning will allow natural light to brighten your home. This leads to an overall appearance of a larger, more spacious house that buyers will be willing to pay more for.
Help Your Home Appear Newer
Everyone knows that newer homes sell for more money, but dirty walls and grimy corners make a home seem old and beat up. A deep cleaning from the helpful professionals at handy.com will ensure that your home is sparkling and fresh, and if you have the time, they can even add a nice new coat of paint to your walls.
Home improvement is a hot topic right now. The TV schedules are full of shows where hapless families allow a team of experts to fix all kinds of problems and undertake a program of home improvements. Mostly this works very well – not least because the homeowner doesn’t have to pay out for the work – but sometimes the ‘improvements’ can go horribly wrong.
When it comes to selling a property, home improvements can add value and make it easier to find a buyer. Some people need a quick sale (click here if you fall into this category), but making the wrong choices could seriously jeopardise your chances of making a sale.
If you are thinking of selling your home in the near future, here are a few examples of what not to do.

Built in 1938, this Noordwijk seaside villa was originally the holiday home of a concrete factory owner. Battered and blustered by the salty sea weather over the decades, the house was in need of renovation. Besides roof replacement and basement repairs by a quality waterproofing company like Tredent Contracting, the bedrooms, bathrooms and windows were outdated and some spaces had grown too small for the clients’ requirements.
Inspired to create a home to be experienced by all five senses, the Beaumont concrete house evolved as an exploration project. The design, understated, is situated in a mixed use neighborhood where residential duplexes coexist with small to midsize industrial buildings. Despite the project’s integration, a number of features distinguish the project from other buildings in the area. In contrast to the superimposed typology of apartment units located on the ground floor and second floor, the Beaumont house challenges this spatial composition by creating a modular square plan where one unit is situated on the ground and second floor, and a second unit is located on the second and third floor. This spatial tour de force is a response to the program and sun movement, allowing each unit exposure to three orientations rather than two and to take full advantage of southern sunlight.
