  1.  Clean Up and Remove the Clutter – If your home is filled with clutter, clean it up and remove it. Potential buyers need to see a home that is clean up and inviting.
  2.  Remove Furniture – Too much furniture in any room will make them look small. Less furniture means more spacious rooms. If need be rent a storage unit to store the furniture in until your home is sold. If necessary replace a few choice pieces to enhance rooms and give them a fresh look.
  3.  Trim the bushes and trees – Overgrown bushes and trees hide your house. They give the first impression that the home is not well cared for by the current owners. By trimming them you open up the home to be viewed by all potential buyers. Plus it will allow more light to reach your home brightening all rooms.
  4. Got Hardwoods under Carpet? Rip it Up! Rip carpet up and if necessary refinish the floors. Everyone wants hardwoods! If you have them flaunt them don’t hide them. Doing it yourself will increase your home’s value and save potential the buyers the time of doing it themselves allowing you to reap the rewards instead of giving them away.
  5. Brighten Your Entry and Enhance Curb Appeal – Buyers often make up their minds in a startling 7 seconds upon visiting your home about whether to buy it. We only have one chance to make a good impression. Easy fixes here are painting the front door, repairing anything broken, and replacing door hardware if worn and old. Plant easy to care for seasonal flowers in beds in front of your home and pots by the door to create a warm inviting entry way.

  6. Lighten Up – Add lighting and natural lighting to your home to enhance its brightness and appeal. Easy fixes are adding a light to a dark area. Low-cost solar tubes are desirable to add natural light to a dark kitchen or bathroom for little money plus they are eco-friendly giving your home “Green appeal”.
  7.  If it is broken fix it – Removing problems and fixing them will eliminate the problems that arise from a home inspection. Plus if a buyer can see any issues they will start adding up the time and cost of fixing it themselves. A neglected home repair is a glaring sore thumb that gets potential buyers thinking about what else is wrong with your home and will cause them to move on.
  8.  Enhancing Bathrooms – The saying is that kitchen and baths sell homes. You may not have the perfect bathroom, but spending $500 on it can go a long way to fix basic issues. Replacing outdated cabinet pulls, fixtures such as lighting, faucets for sinks and tubs, as well as old frosted glass for clear glass will give your bathroom a fresh look. Nothing kills the good feeling about a bathroom worse than dirt or grim. So clean the grout, remove rust stains, apply fresh caulk, replace the toilet seat, paint the walls and replace the towels. All can make a difference.
  9. Don’t forget the kitchen – Even if you do not have granite and the latest appliances, the kitchen is one of the most important rooms in your house and it can be fixed up for little investment.
  10. Paint Your Walls Neutral Colors – Freshly painted walls with neutral colors help sell a home by allowing the potential buyer to project their ideas on them. Too loud or too dark and all the buyer can think of is what it will take to cover them up. While bold colors may appeal to some, it is best to leave those choices up to them and not impress your style on them. Fresh paint is the single easiest and least expensive way to enhance your home’s value
