Getting ready to sell? Or maybe your house is already sitting on the market going nowhere fast. Whatever the case, your goal is to appeal to the most potential buyers as possible, and we recommend these three updates to garner more interest for the biggest payback…
1) Paint Your Walls Neutral – We can’t stress this one enough! Fresh, neutral colors have been proven to appeal to more potential buyers. It’s not a gimmick, it’s a fact! And paint is one of the cheapest upgrades you can make to your home. Say so long to your lavender walls…you can paint your walls any color you like in your new place…and instead opt for a nice, creamy white, taupe, or tan so more buyers will be able to envision themselves living there!
2) Update Your Flooring – Potential buyers absolutely LOVE new carpeting! The look, the feel, the fact that they won’t be living on someone else’s old floors. But if you really want to impress them, go for wood or wood-look laminate! While replacing flooring is never cheap, it costs a lot less than your first price reduction.
3) Perk Up Your Landscape – Trim back those overgrown trees and shrubs, or cut down anything that is dead or dying altogether, replace the yellow, weedy lawn with sod, drop in a few colorful plants, add fresh mulch, and you’ve just increased your curb appeal 100%! A landscape that looks well-maintained, SELLS!
