1) Declutter and reorganize: Unclutter your home to make it look bigger and cleaner. Buyers need to be able to envision their own belongings in the home.
Tip: Avoid bright colours and too many personal effects.

2) Make exterior improvements: Get the lawn in shape, repair the gutter and add lighting.
Tip: These changes make the home look more visually appealing and safer to buyers.

3) Update kitchen appliances: The kitchen is often the room buyers gravitate towards first. Small revisions here can drastically improve the room, giving it a new look at a relatively low cost.

4) Refresh bathroom fixtures: Faucets can have a large impact on the bathroom’s style and its appeal to buyers. Changing the fixtures and adding a fresh coat of paint can inexpensively update the décor of the room.

5) Polish off projects: Adding insulation can reduce heating and cooling needs, decreasing costs by more than 25%! These savings can then be used to remodel other rooms like the basement, increasing the usable space.
