We all believe that doing a complete overhaul on your kitchen or bathroom is the only thing that’s going to add perceived value to your house. Well, I’m here today to tell you that that is incorrect. There are a few things you can do to help your house sell for a higher price without breaking the bank. A lot of the time you’d never think of them because you just don’t notice them. But buyers do! Here are a few things you can do to improve the aesthetics of your house without spending a lot of time or money.

Door Knobs

The first thing you can do to improve the aesthetics of your home in Wilmington NC is to change all of the doorknobs in your homes. The three types of doorknobs you’re going to focus on are outdoor, indoor, and closet. While we don’t always notice it, how a doorknob looks and feels while you’re opening it plays a big role in how buyers perceive your home. Go to your local hardware store and find doorknobs that don’t clash with the room colors throughout your house, are uniform in color and design, have a welcoming/smooth texture, and are easily turned (unless it’s a door that’s not supposed to turn, of course. Some closets door knobs do not). Making the simple change will add a lot of aesthetic value to the minds of prospective buyers when they’re walking through your house.

Electrical Plates

The next items you’ll want to focus on are the electrical plates. This definitely isn’t the sexiest thing that you can change about your house, and you don’t want to go overboard, but they play a massive role in your home’s aesthetics. Close your eyes and imagine the last house you walked through. What kind of electrical plates did they have, and what color were they? You may not be able to remember, but what you do remember is the feeling that you had when walking through the property. Now imagine walking through the same house and seeing a cracked electrical plate or one that looks yellowish and dingy. How does that change your gut feeling about the house? Sometimes it’s barely noticeable, but you begin to get a “woo-ja” feeling when you’re walking through a Wilmington NC house that has small aesthetic abnormalities like that. It doesn’t break the bank to make this change either. Electrical plates are usually less than a dollar and are installed using a screwdriver. Be careful not to use an electric drill when installing them, since they are very powerful and can crack the plate when you’re installing it.

Taking these simple actions can help your house become more aesthetically pleasing to buyers who are looking through, which helps your house demand a higher sale price on the market when you are selling your house in Wilmington NC. Make sure not to go overboard! The upscale, decorative electrical plates have a time in place, but they may not be a great fit for your home. Contact your Wilmington NC Realtor or Home Buyer to get more information about what kind of plates help houses sell in the market.
