Marty Remo- RE/MAX Benchmark Realty Group- Easy Home Updates Potential Buyers will Love
Selling your home is a daunting task, and preparing your home to sell is a huge undertaking. However, there are small changes that can make a huge impact on potential buyers, and can even increase the value of your home! Here are a few that you should do right now.
1. Start On The Street
An approachable home can make all the difference! A few things to consider doing at a street level: wash the entire exterior, touch up any paint that has weathered over time, remove any overgrown plants and weeds, mow the lawn, and consider adding hardware such as a door knocker or updated numbers to really add that extra “oomph.”
2. Turn To The Kitchen And Bathrooms
Now is the time to deep clean the areas you may have been avoiding. Repainting adds ambiance and brightens up any room. Not sure what color to pick? Good Housekeeping has a list of 20 tried-and-true bathroom paint colors to help you decide. Adding new tile and changing cabinet hardware can also make a huge impact. This will give these spaces a luxurious, sleek, and modern feel at a low cost! If you have more time on your hands, consider painting your kitchen cabinets.
3. Let There Be Light
A huge factor for buyers is natural light and ambiance. Deep clean and open up your windows to provide fresh air and light—creating instant space.
Don’t have natural light? You can add fixtures such as floor, table, and ceiling lights. Remember to purchase high quality LED bulbs that are consistent throughout the entire home. Adding mirrors can also be a huge help to amplify the light in any room.
