Start with Curb Appeal
Your house might look perfect on the inside, but if the outside of your home is in disarray, it’s not going to make a good first impression. When it comes to buying a home, people value the outward appearance a house has, so it’s important you ensure your home has nice curb appeal.
Fix any issues with the roofing, including replacing broken shingles and clearing out the gutters. Ensure the lawn is mowed and the plants and flowers look lively and healthy. If the exterior paint or your front door looks a bit old and worn, consider replacing it with something more appealing and modern. Consider placing some nice pot plants by the door of the entry to add more visual appeal and any modern outdoor furniture could be placed out the front to encourage the buyers to remember how the front of the home looked.
Make Easy Cosmetic Repairs
Internally, there are a few things you can update to create a more valuable home. These repairs don’t need to be expensive, but they can have a big pay off come auction day.
If there are any faulty items, such as leaking taps or broken light switches, get these replaced. Patch up and repaint over any holes in the drywall, and consider repainting rooms that have chipped walls or look tired.

Something as simple as refreshing the paint or adding wallpaper to one of the walls in a bedroom to draw attention to this part of the room is a great way to give any bedroom a mini makeover. If you aren’t comfortable doing this yourself, or making such big changes is too expensive consider adding some art to the walls that matches the theme of the room, if you are unsure what this is try to select something that matches the bedding. For some final touches, place flowers or plants on surfaces around the room to give it a more peaceful feeling. If there is are any items that aren’t visually appealing or don’t have a specific purpose in the room, consider putting them in a well labeled box or large container and put it into a Self storage facility in the Perth area.

Consider getting wet rooms, like your bathrooms and laundry, professionally cleaned before an open house. This can make your bathrooms appear refreshed and new without having to completely update them.
Make sure all your doors and windows are functional and don’t squeak or get stuck.
