The weather is cold and miserable, a lot of people are returning to work after a lengthy break and January is often a month of little fun and enjoyment. For some people, a quiet January is about saving money whereas, for other people, January is about focusing on making changes to your health and outlook on life.
Therefore, January is a great time to make changes with your life, and if you are looking to sell your home, you will find that January is the perfect time of year to create a platform that helps you sell your home this year.
If you have recently taken down your Christmas tree and decorations, you will likely feel that your home is a little bare. You are not alone, this is a common problem, but a New Year is a time for a fresh start, so why not freshen up your home. This is great advice for people who want to stay in their home for many years and for people looking to sell their home soon, so no matter what your goals for 2019 are, you can use this time at the start of the year to make changes.
Make changes for all the right reasons
Selling your home is challenging and even though the market has slowed down, there is still a lot of competition when it comes to selling a home. Therefore, updating your home and making sure that it appeals to the right buyer in 2019 is ideal. At Austin Property Services, we are pleased to say that we know the local community, we know who the most likely buyers are and we know what buyers want in certain areas and for certain homes.
Therefore, this means when you freshen up your home, you should do so with one eye on what buyers are likely to want. No matter how good your personal taste is, you aren’t decorating your home for yourself, you are decorating to appeal to buyers, so think about what is on trend for winter and then spring of 2019.
Add a fresh touch to your home decor
This winter has seen a focus on nature and handmade elements coming into the home. More people are looking for sustainable aspects in their home, and there is also something nice about a unique feature or product in your home. You don’t have to overhaul your home completely in this style but adding an item or two will have a positive impact on your home and on prospective buyers.
You should also be practical with how you style your home, and there may be high-tech devices you can add to your home to attract buyers. Given that saving money and energy efficiency are two aspects that buyers are keen to find in a home, think about adding a smart thermostat to your home.
A fresh approach is rarely a bad thing in life, and if you’re looking to sell your home, giving your home a fresh look will be of benefit. There is no better time to revitalise your home than the start of a New Year, so take advantage of your home feeling bare by making some changes.
Of course, selling your home is difficult, and there is a lot to be said for getting help from experts. If you are determined to sell your home in 2019, contact Austin Property Services and we will be more than happy to assist you.
