Every space in your home has to be clean, sparkling and de-cluttered when you want to sell it. Real estate buyers are extremely fastidious and rightfully so. There are many things you can do to attract real estate buyers and here are some of them:

    ·Improve curbside value.

    ·Invest in offline and online advertising.

    ·Put the word around in your neighborhood and to your friends as well.

    ·Be prepared to show the house to potential buyers at all times of the day and

    ·Improve your bathroom.

If that last point made you stop in your tracks, here is why it is important to dwell on it for a long time.

Space usage

A bathroom is perhaps one of the most used spaces in any home. Typically, it will see hot water, cold water, soaps, cleaning acids and a variety of other products causing wear and tear on the floor and wall tiles. So, it does stand to logic that you spend a bit of extra time in ensuring that every surface of this bathroom is not only clean but also:

    ·Free of even the tiniest spot of mildew.

    ·Is devoid of any broken or chipped sanitary ware.

    ·Has all its tiles in perfect condition – not even the smallest of chipped corners anywhere.

De-clutter

Even in the bathroom, you must remove every bit of personal hygiene products there. Yes, by all means have toilet paper and a fresh bar of soap but there should be nothing else. So, even if your buyers want to use the bathroom, they get to see it in clean and pristine condition.

Add a few other things

Take a critical look at your bathroom and check whether you need to add fixtures. For instance, a small storage shelf can do wonders to the space. Your mirror can be upgraded to a newer and more attractive style. If your bathroom sink can be upgraded, then do that as well. These are minor upgrades but will go a very long way in giving the bathroom a huge makeover.

Add a few small but important things to make the space look fresh and luxurious:

    ·Potted plants.

    ·Lights around the mirror.

    ·Clean towels hanging on the towel rack.

    ·Wall decals too.

Clean every surface

Invest in high quality cleaning products and do it yourself or get professional home cleaners to come in. Every surface should be sparkling. Check under the sinks, inside those storage areas and even on top of the light fixtures. There should be no signs of any dust or grime anywhere. Some of the cleaning projects can be major work and some of them minor but do ensure that you:

    ·Re-grout the tiles.

    ·Caulk the bath tub.

    ·Remove any unsightly stains and marks.

    ·Remove any marks of corrosion that may have been caused by humidity and water.

Finally, it might be expensive but, change the toilets to modern fixtures which use lower quantities of water and look fresh and clean too. Indubitably, investing the right amount of money in the bathroom can help you attract real estate buyers easily.
