Unexpected ways to make your apartment more attractive to buyers

Unexpected ways to make your apartment more attractive to buyers

Posted on Monday, April 18, 2022

When selling your Bath apartment there are many things that you can do to increase its appeal. Giving it a deep clean, a full declutter and fixing those niggling jobs you have been putting off are always top of the agenda.  These are things buyers expect as standard, but what if you want your home to have that little something extra?  This is where you need to think outside the box and find ways to make your abode a little more interesting. Here are some of our ideas for unexpected ways you can make your apartment more attractive to buyers.

The smart approach

Whether you’re a lover of smart technology or not, according to data from Juniper Research there will be 1.3 billion connected smart homes in the world by 2024.  And this figure will keep increasing as technology evolves and homebuyers start to add these features to their wish lists.  Even today, as we tour apartments on valuations, we see Amazon Echoes gracing rooms, Ring doorbells, and smart home security systems, giving people more control of their home and security at their fingertips. 

If you have installed any smart systems, it’s worth mentioning this to your estate agent, as it could be a real draw for those that want to be highly connected, even at home.

Have nothing to hide

When you’re looking to buy a new home, it’s often not until you head down the sales process that paperwork is presented when requested by a conveyancer.  But imagine if you went to view an apartment and copies of any paperwork associated with the apartment were there for you to check. The boiler certificates, any documentation to certify works you have had done, any specialist maintenance, how much more confident would you be about placing an offer when the sellers are proving they have nothing to hide?

There is magic in curtains

One piece of your home’s interior that is often overlooked and underestimated is curtains, which can have a real impact curtains in a room.  Simply replacing tired curtains can instantly transform a space and make it look more attractive to potential buyers.  Curtains can also make ceilings appear higher, which is fantastic if you have a room which is on the smaller side.  You can achieve this by hanging the curtains right under the ceiling and making sure they are long enough to brush the floor, this visually lifts the ceiling and makes windows appear bigger too. 

DIY right

Not everyone has the eye of an interior designer, and you certainly don’t need to buy expensive furniture for your apartment to appear stylish, but if the décor is a bit grim this will inevitably drag down the value of your property.  Therefore, before you ask an estate agent round, if you’re not the best at DIY get a professional to update your apartment’s décor to neutral shades and keep your furnishings simple, as this will create a classically elegant finish allowing your home to sell itself.

Who doesn’t love a surprise?

One of the joys of being an estate agent is seeing the faces of potential buyers when they walk into an apartment and are met with things they didn’t expect.  Those little touches that give the home an extra something, resulting in a wider smile and a drop of excitement. Good surprises always have a way of getting under people’s skin, making homes more memorable and attractive as a result.
