Thinking of selling? No one wants to spend money on a home they are getting ready to sell, but what if there were a few, affordable fixes that could help your house sell faster? These simple home improvements will be sure to enhance your house, attract potential buyers, and get you the maximum return on your money.
Here are a few home improvements that should increase your home’s value:
Lighting is essential when getting your home ready for the market and is often overlooked. No one wants to enter a dark and dingy house. Consider replacing light bulbs, taking down curtains, and cleaning windows. Adding table lamps and floor lamps will brighten up any room, especially in areas that have no overhead lights. Lastly, think about updating your old lighting fixtures with more modern ones.
It is no secret that painting is one of the best bangs for your buck! No matter what room in your home you are trying to recreate, start with a can of paint. It may just give you the makeover you have been looking for without breaking the bank.
If you have lots of wall-to-wall carpeting throughout your house, think about replacing it. The everyday wear and tear leads to carpet looking old and tired. It’s a small price to pay when it will give your home a fresh new look. At the very least be sure to have a professional cleaning.
First impressions count. Consider renting a storage space and putting away items that you don’t use on a daily basis. People want to see your house, not your personal things. Decluttering and cleaning is one of the easiest and cheapest ways to keep your house looking great while it is on the market.
