Tips For Selling Your Apartment

Selling Your Apartment: Spend on the Little Details to Receive a Big Price

Pets can increase the appeal of your apartment, and it turns out that the other little details count as well, according to The New York Times. And you don't have to spend a lot to get a better price; there are tons of little tricks you can do. You can even use a few of these simple tips to upgrade your apartment even if you're not trying to sell your apartment. Here they are:

  • Bigger Space: Use smaller furniture to make your apartment space look larger. For example, get a smaller-sized bed or smaller tables for your living room to make it seem like your apartment is larger than it really is.
  • Lighting: If the lighting in your apartment is dim, get some extra lamps to brighten up the rooms.
  • Smell: The article pointed out that a rainy, musty smell in the apartment can turn off potential buyers. Tackle that problem with a dehumidifier.
  • Cleanliness: A good hygiene of a residence can add a lot to the price tag of the apartment. Make sure you have fresh towels and pillows out, as well as clean rugs. Clutter should also be cleared, and here are some tips to do so.
  • Expensive shoes: Apparently having an expensive shoe closet will snag you a better price. "You can buy 25 pairs of designer shoes, put them in your closet, and they're going to get more than you spent on them," according to Michele Kleier, the head of a high-end real estate agency. "People want to step into your life." This is one of the more extravagant upgrades, but a savvy alternative can be to display your cutest shoes and hide the old ones.
  • Replacement: Spending a little to fix or replace broken tiles, fixtures, appliances, lighting, and cabinets can go a long way in increasing the value of your home in the buyer's eyes.
