Welcome to my new Blog! I look forward to sharing my thoughts on anything & everything that interests me & topics that may contain useful information for you! I thought I'd start out my first blog with a few useful quick ways to update your home if you're thinking of selling in the near future. "Staging" your home to sell can have a huge impact on how fast your home sells and even what price your home sells for! Here are a couple quick, cheap fixes that are simple and effective:
Fresh Coat of (Neutral) Paint:
When it comes to return on investment, dollar for dollar, theres probably no bigger "bang for your buck" than a fresh coat of paint! A good quality neutral coloured eggshell or flat paint is the best choice and will make your home feel clean, bright and updated!
People tend to have a lot of personal possessions! When touring a potential home, buyers will often try to visualize their own things in the space. The problem is, with all your stuff in the space, it can be tough for a buyer to look past and see where their own stuff may fit in! Easiest fix? Clean House!! If you don't want to toss it, store it! A decluttered home will make a lasting impression on buyers and give them the illusion of more space (even if there's not a ton of it!)
The second potential buyers arrive at your property, they start judging! Most people are seeking a home that's move-in ready, so a little can go a long way on the exterior. A couple planters, freshly cut grass & a well maintained driveway are only a few examples of small things that can make a really great first impression!
If you're not in the market for a full make over, consider updating these smaller items for an instant refresh:
-Faucets & Shower Heads
-Door Knobs & Switch Plates
