Pride Of Ownership Goes a Long Way

Metro Vancouver comprises multiple beautiful neighborhoods, a sprawling array of gorgeous homes, and breathtaking landscapes.

Whether you have a property that’s secluded in the mountains with a view of the city,  bordering the shores of the Pacific Ocean front, or nestled in one of Vancouver’s many suburbs, we’ve got some informative pro-tips on easily making your home more attractive for prospective buyers.

Easy home improvement tips for Vancouver property owners

Selling your home can be quite invigorating as you begin to embark on a new adventure elsewhere in the city. Adding these improvements to your Metro Vancouver home will help empower you with great pride of ownership. Simply put, these changes could make the difference between a buyer choosing your home over another seller's property.

Freshly installed flowers at your doorstep will add a tranquil splash of colour and aroma, along with a charming welcome mat to greet visitors. If you have a walkway access area that's riddled with weeds, mudd, or scarcity of lush green grass, consider installing paving stones or even grass seed /  ground cover to show that you’re taking care of the property.

Boost Your Home's Selling Potential with Quick DIY Upgrades

Having a maintained backyard is something buyers will look forward to. Make sure to have the lawn cut prior to anyone viewing your property, ensuring any patches have been covered with grass seed, and removing any weeds or “eyesores” from the garden beds. Keeping your hedges trimmed and maintained is another great way to improve your outdoor aesthetics.

When it comes to structural elements such as wooden decks or patio coverage, inspect the area to ensure there’s no damage or rot. You may need to replace these affected areas as it’ll ensure your pride of ownership and prove that you’ve been taking care of your home for the next family to enjoy.

Why should I improve my Metro Vancouver home if I’m putting it on the market for sale?

Having a well kept home and property is much more attractive to potential buyers. It shows that you’ve put effort into maintaining your investment and keeping your home as welcoming as possible to others.

Many buyers will want a “turn key” property where they can feel instantly  at home without any additional improvement costs.

These easy DIY tips will help maximize the outcome you have when selling your home, prior to listing your property on the market. Just remember that not everyone is handy and that these simple improvements could make or break a sale.
