If you want your house to sell for a good amount you can spend big bucks to raise the value of your home. But if you’re on a tight budget or need to sell your house fast you can still do some cheaper home improvements. This post will show you some easy low cost suggestions that have a great return on their investment. Here’s our list of simple home improvements you can do make sure your home is ready for an open house.
Less is more
De-clutter your home. Put stuff in storage. You need to let the prospective home buyer actually see your home, not your junk.
Ask for suggestions
It’s often times a good idea to get the advice of others. A good source of information is your realtor. They’ll be able to quickly tell you several things you can change to make your home look better.
Professional stagers can come into your home and rearrange your furniture or temporarily furnish it if it’s empty.
First impressions mean a lot. As people come to look at your house, the first thing they notice is the outside. Keep the grass green and trim all the bushes. If your house is painted in a dull color, plant some bright flowers to bring some life to the house.
Let there be light
Houses look much better when they’re bright. So move furniture away from windows and brighten up the house by opening up the curtains and the blinds.
People can be turned off by the slightest things. Something as small as having pet food out can be a deal breaker. A good tip is to ask someone else to smell around the house, since you might have gotten used to any possible odors.
