1 # Give Your Kitchen a Facelift
The kitchen is the heart of the home. If yours is stuck in a time warp, it’s time for a little updating. Installing new cabinetry and appliances usually comes with a hefty price but you can easily give your kitchen a new look by making some inexpensive cosmetic changes.
Painting cabinets a neutral color is a great way to cover up any dents and scratches without spending a lot of money.
#2 Spruce Up the Bathroom
The bathroom is almost as important as the kitchen. No need to do a a complete bathroom makeover, simply replacing your old fixtures is a relatively inexpensive way to improve your bathroom’s look and improve its functionality. A fresh coat of paint and hanging new towels are also cheap fixes but the easiest way to perk up your bathroom. A good scrubbing can make a dingy shower or grubby floor tiles look new. All it requires is a little elbow grease.
#3 Curb appeal
Make a great first impression! For many buyers, what your house looks like on the outside is just as important as what it looks like on the inside. If you’re on a tight budget, simple things like cutting the grass, raking up leaves, removing weeds and trimming hedges can make your home more attractive from the outside. A few potted plants and a few bags of mulch are fast fixes that can spruce up your home’s appearance without breaking the bank.
#4 Ditch the Clutter
If your home is full of clutter, buyers will be too distracted by your stuff to imagine where they’ll put their own belongings. Getting rid of unnecessary items makes it easier for buyers to see what you’re selling and it also creates the illusion of additional space. Clearing off counters, organizing your desk, and rounding up the kids’ toys can make your home more appealing to buyers and more comfortable for you and your family.
Show off your home’s most attractive features! Spending as little as $100 on new fixtures can give the house a more modern feel and keep buyers focused on its best attributes. Change out your old light bulbs for ones with a higher wattage. You want buyers to be able to see all of the highlights as they walk though the home.
