Coronis is Queensland’s largest, wholly-owned end-to-end real estate business with more than 20 offices located across Brisbane, Toowoomba, the Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast.

From managing the sale or leasing of your property, through to mortgage brokering, conveyancing and estate planning, our objective is to streamline the entire property transaction and achieve fast, profitable results for our clients.

It’s generally a good idea to protect and improve the sale value of your property, even if you’re not intending on selling in the immediate future. Continuing to invest in and develop the property so that it remains modern and well-maintained will help to grow its value consistently over time. There are, of course, plenty of different ways to enhance its value, but at the minimum, there are a handful of key strategies that are proven to be effective.

With our great experience in real estate since 1984, Here is the list of up-to-date tips for maximising the sale value of your property in this year

1) Develop the facade
The first thing that visitors see of a home is its front facade, and a great deal of value can be added to the property simply by making sure that those first impressions are positive. Consider the look of the building itself, the landscaping and the overall condition of the property. For example, make sure the roof is in good repair and looks great - filthy tiles or rusting metal is simply not a good look!

2) Keep the flooring modern
Fashions in flooring change frequently, for example carpeted or even lino floors were in fashion not long ago, but these days polished floors or stone is a much more attractive look. You don’t need to tear the floors up every time the fashion changes, but consider making a refresh to the flooring a high priority.

3) Make sure everything matches inside
Even if the house is not being sold with the furniture, the furniture that fills a space makes a statement and can help to inspire the creative thoughts in a prospective buyer. Mismatching furniture within a room can make it look busy, small, and unattractive to the eye. Consistency and style will create an open, calm atmosphere, which will inspire far more confidence in a buyer.

4) Raise the roof
The desire to have space is a timeless one, and the height of the ceiling can actually have a big impact on the perception of space in a room. If your property has low ceilings and it’s possible to lift them, do so in order to maintain that open, airy atmosphere that is so in vogue at the moment.

5) Focus in on the kitchen
It’s very likely that a prospective buyer now is a fan of shows like My Kitchen Rules and MasterChef! That means they are going to want a sizable and well-resourced kitchen to host their dinner parties. What are people looking for in their kitchens? Energy-efficient appliances (taps, ovens, fridges), plenty of storage space and cabinets, and plenty of countertop space.

6) Is there the ability to add more rooms?
Properties escalate in price rapidly as more rooms – especially bedrooms – are added onto the building. So, if there is the ability to renovate and add a bedroom or two, an extra bathroom, or additional living space, be sure to consider it. Renovations might have an upfront cost, but the return from that investment generally justifies it come sale time.

7) Sustainability is so hot right now
Increasingly, people want to live sustainably, and are willing to pay a premium in order to be able to do so. In addition, savvy home buyers are realising that the more sustainable a building, the cheaper it’s going to be for them in the longer term.Ideas to consider include: solar panels, water tanks, thermal warming systems, and great insulation is a must.Most of these investments can be made over the medium and long term, which is why it’s worth considering well before you’ve even started to think about selling your home. That way, when you do decide to sell, you’re not going to miss any opportunities by simply running out of time to “do up” the place.

If some of the above ideas are possible at your property, but you're not sure how to finance them, contact our Coronis Mortgage & Finance team today - your renovations could be more achievable than what you think. Alternatively, if you would like an appraisal on your property or some advice on what the current market is looking for, one of our sales specialists can come and assist you... just let us know when and where!
