Interior Improvements for your Downtown San Diego Condo

July 7th, 2015

These days it is simply not enough to just throw your Downtown San Diego Condo onto the local real estate market and hope for the best. Agreed, sometimes this does work, but if you want to get top dollar for your home you are going to have to ensure that it is set apart from the majority of listed homes. So how can the average home owner set their Downtown San Diego apart from the others? Simple, make a few upgrades. But be sure to do it right.

There are several things that an average buyer takes into account when looking at a home. You probably already know what they are, after all you bought the home you are now selling right? A great area to start is in the kitchen. Are the appliances a touch out of date? Replacing them is well worth the expense as new stove, fridge and the like are extremely popular additions and something that prospective buyers notice right off the bat.

Another thing that people rarely thing of is the condition of the floors. Floors become such an unnoticed part of our lives that they can be easy to overlook. Carpeted floors should always be steam or professionally cleaned before prospective buyers come anywhere near your home. If you have wood or laminate make sure to clean them with the proper cleaner for the surface. Be careful of which cleaner you use as some cleaners can damage wood or laminate.

Now, take a look at your walls. Notice anything that could be improved? How about the color? Neutrality is gospel here. Outrageous colors may be exactly what defines your style but in keeping those when selling you can easily alienate a large group of buyers. Sticking with neutral colors will help your Downtown San Diego Condo to appeal to a greater number of people and give it a better chance of selling. Many buyers will be able to see through crazy colors, but not too many of them will want to have to repaint.

Take some time and make sure to clean the house from top to bottom, removing clutter and personal items. These are things you will have to pack sooner or later anyway, best to get a head start on it. Removing personal items will also help buyers to place themselves in the home without seeing pictures of someone else’s family everywhere. If you ever have any doubts or concerns, talk to one of our team members and we will be able to help you get your home in tip-top shape for selling.
