Quick & Easy Low Budget Fixes That Can Help Sell Your Home or get ready for guests over the Holidays!

There’s a lot to do when preparing to sell your home, and some improvements to make it easier to sell might be on the list.  When you need to get your home looking its best but don’t have a lot of extra cash to spend on it (especially because of the upcoming Holidays), try a few of these simple tricks that will help sell your home faster without breaking the bank.

CLEANER IS BETTER

If you can’t afford (or don’t want) to replace the carpets in your home to make it look newer or cleaner, consider shampooing them instead. 

Cleaning the outside of the house really adds to curb appeal.  Rent a pressure washer for the day and clean the driveway and outside walls (gently).  Patios and decks can benefit from pressure washing as well.  It will leave concrete and wood looking like new and get rid of cobwebs and dust on the house. With the fall and winter weather around, the brighter and cleaner your home can look, the better. Keeping the falling leaves in check will help too.

CHANGE SMALL DETAILS

New windows might be out of the question, but a quick coat of paint on the frames and windowsills can really brighten up old windows and make them look new again.  If you don’t have time or money to paint the entire exterior of your home, try painting just the front door.  It will create a bright, welcoming accent. Is your kitchen

Just remember, simple touches can change the way a buyer sees your home.  I am available to look at your home and give advice for touch-up’s. This is something we will usually discuss at our first meeting. There are also local home-staging companies where getting homes ready to sell is what they do and it’s usually a pretty reasonable price.
