With the high inventory of homes for sale on the market nowadays, how does a seller attract buyers? The name of the game is making your home standout in your neighborhood. How does a homeowner achieve that without necessarily spending a fortune?
There are free fixes, and on top of that list is to ensure that your home is Q-Tip clean. Yes, that is free, all you need is sweat equity. Getting rid of odors (if you smell “it”, you can’t sell it) cleaning the baseboards, faucets, switches as well as the door hardware. Tackle the yard and spruce it up. If needed, remove dead plants and purchase inexpensive replacements. Of course, you have to declutter. Saying goodbye to knickknacks is a tall order.
If you are willing to spend a little, remove that old wallpaper. That dated lighting has to come down and get inexpensive fixtures that are in consistent with the style of the house. Don’t forget the grout in the bathrooms. Re-grouting as well as re-caulking is a cheap way to spruce up the bath as well as a paint job.
