If you are planning to sell your house in Calgary, you must know that the outer appearance of your home is not the only factor that affects the selling price. The condition, environment, and appearance of every room of your house play a vital role in appealing potential home buyers. We understand how important it is to make your bathroom open house ready if you are planning to sell your house. Hence, in this article, we have listed a few tips for making your bathroom open house ready.
Clear the Surfaces
Apart from cleaning your bathroom from roof to floor, you must also declutter the space. Clear the surfaces of counters. Take off all the personal hygiene products and daily toiletries such as toothbrushes, soaps, hair brushes, combs, hair dryers, etc. from the counters. Also, take off all the cleaning products and empty containers from your bathroom to make it look neat and spacious.
Update the Accessories
Your bathroom can be instantly transformed by just changing your bathroom accessories. If your bathroom accessories such as bath rugs and doormats are fading, tearing, or wearing off, replace them with new ones to make your bathroom open house ready. Also, if your bathroom decor is deteriorating, make sure you get them fixed right in time before inviting people for home inspections.
Maximize Storage Spaces
Buyers often look in every corner of your bathroom to find storage spaces available. If you maximize the storage spaces in your bathroom and offer a lot of cabinets and shelves to the potential buyers, the chances of closing the sale increases. Hence, install more cabinets, shelves, and storage spaces in your bathroom wherever possible. Also, try to keep these spaces empty so that they don’t look cluttered when potential home buyers inspect your room.
Place Mirrors Smartly
Did you know that adding more mirrors to your bathroom can make it look larger? It is a great hack to make your bathroom look larger instantly. Mirrors will reflect more light in your bathroom to create an illusion of bigger space. Mount mirrors of different shapes and sizes on different walls of your bathroom to create more depth and detail.
Fix Plumbing Defects
Plumbing defects can be noticed by the potential home buyers and can lower the chances of selling your home. Even if a buyer agrees to buy your home, they will try their best to negotiate on the price and repair costs. Hence, fix all the bathroom plumbing problems, well in advance so that you also live comfortably in your house and the buyers don't have to face issues in the future. Fix all the leaks from plumbing pipes and fixtures, faulty toilet, clogged drains, and rusting hardware before organizing an open house.
Once your bathroom and other rooms of your house are open house ready and look appealing, you must decide the best time to host an open house. Marketing your open house event is also important.
