These Washington DC area homeowners could be thinking of selling and if you’re on the same track, your Northern Virginia home will need to stand out!
The most important factor in selling your home in Washington DC, Bethesda, Chevy Chase, and the surrounding areas and thus, attracting homebuyers, is pricing the property well.
But that’s not all you can do! Increasing your home’s value with a few easy, inexpensive upgrades can push it to the top of a buyer’s list and beat other comparable homes in the DC Metro.
Keep curb appeal a priority
Even in the winter months, increasing your home’s curb appeal should be on your to-do list. Be sure to clear the pathways to your door, removing all snow and ice, and clean the windows. It’s also crucial to highlight your home’s outdoor features, whether they be an outdoor fireplace, patio or deck. Make sure homebuyers can view these features from indoors!
Adding a new front door, mailbox and fence are also simple ways to spark homebuyer interest.
Revamp the bathroom
Bathrooms and kitchens are two places Metro DC homebuyers will desire renovations. However, that doesn’t mean you need to plan a complete overhaul. Small changes like replacing fixtures, wallpaper and re-grouting tile can do the trick just as well.
Change out light fixtures
Some homebuyers in Washington DC, Bethesda, Chevy Chase, and Northern Virginia look for older homes, but not the light fixtures that can quickly date them. Swap out older light fixtures for new and consider increasing the wattage in darker rooms with little natural light. This a quick fix that allows rooms to feel fresh, larger and open.
