As they say, it’s the small details that matter, and to a
potential homebuyer this may also be true. According to an April article on
Propertywire.com, even the most outdated homes may not need costly renovations
to prepare them for sale. What buyers really care about may surprise you. Here
are 3 quick and inexpensive fix up ideas for any house you’re prepping for sale
Fix up the Entryway: Zillow Agent
Advisor Cyndi Lesinski says, “A clean
entrance can go a long way, add fresh potted flowers to increase the life and
energy of the entrance.” Another idea is to paint the front door. Popular
colors are red, burgundy, cranberry, and black.
Stage Your house: According Mara
Miller of Carrier and Company of NYC, “When
staging, remove all personal belongings and avoid colors or furniture that are
too style specific. Neutral colors and minimal furniture are best.”
Smaller, Less Expensive Updates: Chris Speicher
of RE/MAX in Washington D.C. recommends updating light fixtures to something
more stylish and modern, replace door handles, cabinet hardware, and perform
minor updates to kitchen and bathroom such as paint, or new faucets. These
items can go a long way.
According to Zillow, doing a general decluttering of your
home is the most crucial thing to help open up a space and also to help
potential homebuyers see themselves in the home.
