You may not be able to make every update your home needs before putting it on the market, but even a few simple projects can help close the deal. By making your property look its best, you’ll be on your way to a quick, profitable sale.
Boost curb appeal. The outside of your home is your first, and undoubtedly most important, opportunity to make a great impression. For a cost-effective update that makes a big impact, consider painting or staining your front door. Spruce up your landscaping by trimming bushes, planting flowers and adding fresh mulch. Finish off the exterior by making sure the porch is well-lit and adding a new doormat.
Paint over dark, dingy walls. Fresh paint brightens a room and helps your home feel clean. Choose a light, neutral color, which will make the space look larger and help buyers visualize their furniture in your home.
Make the bathrooms shine. Updated bathrooms provide a high return on investment at selling time. Consider re-grouting bathroom tile and replacing the caulk in the shower or tub. Adding modern mirrors and light fixtures can also help a bathroom feel like new.
