Clean Your House!
First impressions mean a lot when you’re selling your home. Take personal precautions to ensure that the interior of your home sparkles from its floors to its ceilings by taking time to spruce up your space. Select all personal pieces and pile them neatly. Wipe away all the cob-webs inside and out the house, clean up the counters and the baseboards. A thorough cleaning of your home is the cheapest and easiest way of increasing your home value while waiting for a buyer.
Paint the interior and replace your carpet with wood floors
Homes with hardwood floors and new coat paint will go extreme miles in safeguarding and staging your home for sale. Hardwood flooring typically converts to a substantial return on your initial investment cost. Also, a fresh coat of paint provides a clean view with an updated look. It is important to stick to neutral colors as it will appeal to most people.
Think green with your yard work
Maintaining and improving your yard also benefits your home on its value. Green grass and raking leaves off the yard go a long way to curb appeal! You might want to consider planting flowers, bushes or trees to help your curb appeal as well.
Update kitchen appliances
Modern kitchen appliances typically provide a great return when selling your home. Of course, you should always consult with a real estate expert before you make any changes!
Refreshing your bathrooms
Check out if there is a poor drainage or leaky faucets in your bathroom. Upgrade the bathroom knobs and pulls, re-grouting your shower and or even installing a tile backsplash should increase the value of your home. Make sure you clean your bathrooms regularly so they’re clean for home showings.
