The Cayman Islands properties assimilate the rustic Caribbean charm and the modern amenities to make your life uniquely refreshing on the island. However, timely renovation is a prerequisite to continue relishing its grandeur.
Whether you are planning to sell your Cayman Islands property or simply want to keep your property as good as new, spending on the renovation, although essential, can be expensive. Below are 10 efficient ways in which you can revive your property and elevate its market value without necessarily splurging.
Paint is one of the cheapest, quickest & easiest ways to update the look of your home before you list it. Patch holes and cracks in walls and ceilings. Repaint dark or marred walls with neutral paint (not white).
Clean and polish windows and hardware. Natural light is the best thing to show off any home. Repair any hardware that is not working properly.
Clean & polish fixtures if necessary. Clean off the counters. Clutter can be offensive to the eye, even if you are not aware of it. Make sure all appliances are in working order.
A clean bathroom is a necessity. Make repairs as necessary. You can make a toilet look much better just by replacing the seat. Cleaning up the grout is always a good idea, as it can become dirty over the years.
Lighting makes everything seem open and inviting. You want to maximize the perception of space. Replace any burnt bulbs. Clear out around windows.
Tile floors that are clean and in good repair provide an inviting feeling to anyone entering your home - it can totally change how a buyer views your property. There is nothing like entering a home where the hardwood or tiles looks spectacular.
Go through your home and make sure everything works as it should — from doorknobs, light bulbs, light switches, and locks. Everything doesn't have to be new, but all the functional aspects of the home should be in good working order.
One crucial way to avoid the problems is to have a pre-sale home inspection to help you identify issues and fix them before you try to sell your home. This, along with the help of realtors in the Cayman Islands, will bag the best price for your property.
Check on the age, integrity and maintenance schedule of any cooling system present in the home.
A home that does not allow airflow could be detrimental for any homeowner. It is widespread to see homes that have venting leading into the attic, creating the perfect environment for moisture and mold growth.
A home is not just an investment; it is the way of living! Ensure you make timely decisions to maintain your property. EJ, one of the only Licensed REALTORs in Cayman, will offer you the best advice to help you enhance and assess the property value and sell it at the right price.
