5 Ways to Maximise Profit when Selling your Home


Maximising the profit from the sale of your home is easier and more possible than you might think. If you wish to renovate your home and make it a place you feel is ready to sell for maximum profit, here are some top tips.

Deep Cleaning

It helps to deep clean your entire property so that it is ready to sell and for people to look around. Getting to the hard-to-reach places can prove tricky and dangerous - like the gutters and roofs. It might be a better idea to call in roof gutter cleaning experts for this job, so you can ensure the best results for the deep cleaning of your home. They will provide a safe procedure for cleaning your gutters and ensure the rest of your property remains safe and clean while performing the cleaning.

Instead of putting your safety at risk and risk damaging your home when deep cleaning its exterior, it is best to leave it to the professionals too. After the deep cleaning of the exterior is complete, you should move on to the inside of the home. Deep cleaning of every section of your home will ensure it is ready to sell and will boost buyers' interest. If they can move into a space that is clean and ready, it will encourage them to offer you the asking price, or close to it.

Make it More Sustainable

Another way to maximise the profit from selling your home is to make it more sustainable. Many buyers are looking for places that are kinder to the planet and more cost-effective. The more sustainability measures that are in place, the more affordable bills will be.

For instance, installing solar panels on the property will help to reduce energy bills, as they will generate electricity. This will help you enjoy cheaper bills and also encourage the new buyers to invest more in their purchase, as the features you have added will increase the value of the home.

Assess the Market

A great way to ensure that you market your home for the right price is to assess the market. Looking at other property prices will help you understand how much you can value your home for. If you try to sell your home for more than others, you might lose interest. Or, you might not get anywhere near your asking price. Furthermore, if you sell for a lower price, you will hinder your potential profit. Therefore, ensure to take time to assess the market so that you can price your property competitively and for maximum profit.

Focus on the Curb Appeal

Focusing on the curb appeal of your property will ensure maximising profit. For instance, having a home that appears clean and well-kept will guarantee to boost the interest of buyers. They will see your home and notice your maintenance efforts, which will likely be a reflection of the inside of your home. Hence, buyers will be intrigued and willing to pay more as you have kept the place in great condition, meaning they have less work to do.

Some simple ways to boost your home’s curb appeal include:
  • Refreshing the flowers. Having plenty of color and life outside your home will guarantee to make it look more appealing. Therefore, refreshing the flowers and ensuring they are lively will boost the appearance of your home. 
  • Painting. Repainting features on the outside of your property will ensure maximise the home’s attractiveness. Refreshing the door and fences will help the home look clean and fresh, ready for new people to move in. 
These simple measures will guarantee to boost the appeal of your home, which can influence buyers to pay more.


Most buyers will offer a lower price than what you ask for. It is normal and a great way for buyers to get a discount. If they want to negotiate, ensure to negotiate back. If a buyer offers a low price, you can go back to them with a higher rate and hopefully, they will say yes. You will always manage to get a bit more money out of people if you negotiate and offer them a price that is lower than the asking price, yet higher than their first offer.

Ensure to avoid going too low with your offer as it could hinder your profit margin. There will always be the chance to sell to someone else, that will offer more money. Therefore, it helps to be patient and have a minimum sale price to ensure you still attain a good profit.

Good luck with selling your home!

I searched for unicorn gifts, and these are just 5 of the best that Wicked Uncle has to offer...

Unicorn Colour Changing Umbrella

We all know how unpredictable the British weather is, so it's always a good idea to be armed with a trusty umbrella just in case! This pretty umbrella is decorated in unicorns and rainbows and even features a super special glitter handle too. What makes this umbrella extra special though, is that once it gets wet, lots of mini unicorns appear as the colour changing magic happens. How fun!

Unicorn Stack - Balancing Game

If your child loves games, then you can't go wrong with this fun twist on the classic balancing game. The aim of the game is to stack the 15 pastel unicorns into a wobbly tower - without them toppling over of course! A great game that can be played with friends, siblings, or even solo. Play again and again for endless fun.

Party Unicorn - Crystal Art By Numbers

If your recipient is in to their arts and crafts, then why not choose this crystal art by numbers kit. It comes with everything you need to create a beautiful sparkling unicorn canvas, as well as a picture frame to display the completed artwork! I love that this is a gift that can't be completed within minutes and thrown to the side, as it will need time and care to get the shiny gemstones correctly in place. A fab gift for older unicorn lovers.

Bath Time Unicorns - Squirts & Lights up

A gift now for younger unicorn lovers, these fun toys would make a great addition to bath-time. The set contains 2 water squirters and a third that flashes and lights up when in contact with the water. Great for imaginative and sensory play - just be careful you don't get too wet whilst supervising!

Unicorn Sparkle - Luxury Bath Set

This final gift is something even I would love to receive - a beautifully gift-wrapped set of 5 handmade unicorn-themed bath time treats, that are also 100% vegan friendly. The set contains 2 scented bath fizzes, a raspberry bath creamer, a rainbow jasmine bath mallow and a solid soap scented with cinnamon and orange. Dreamy!
