6 tips for increasing the value of your home

Thinking of selling? You may want to invest between 2 and 5% of the value of your property into home staging. Not only will you be able to increase your selling price, you’ll also sell quicker.

90 seconds!

The first impression is the most crucial part of any visit. The façade of your property and landscaping must be impeccable. Don’t leave anything lying around outside and make sure to weed your flower bed.


Another good tip is to give a fresh coat of paint to your living room, kitchen, and common areas. Choose neutral and bright colours, such as sico’s lineup of classic colours.

Do your kitchen cabinets and bathroom need a bit of love?

No need to invest in quartz or any other expensive material. Keep in mind that you want to sell and make a maximum of profit. Instead, opt for laminated countertops and polyester cabinet doors.

Go green!

Modernize your floor with an eco-efficient material such as cork flooring. It’s less expensive than wood and you’ll get a trendy look!

Get rid of clutter!

Sell or store anything you don’t need. Depersonalize the property by replacing your family photos with lovely artwork. Ikea is the perfect place to get inexpensive items. Furthermore, make sure to organize your storage space.

Seduce your potential buyers’ senses!

Sight: everything must look harmonious Hearing: put on some jazz music Smell: your home must smell fresh.
Touch: everything must be clean.
Taste: put out a water bottle and homemade cookies.

Don’t forget that there is a difference between living in a home and selling it. remember that your property is now a product for potential buyers!
