Pay attention to you yard! Make sure it is nicely groomed, bushes trimmed, freshly mulched beds, and plant some pleasing flowers for the spring market. Clean your house outside if it needs it...power wash vinyl siding and clean walkways, decks and patios. Look at your front door. If it does not look fresh and clean and the knobs and locks are old and worn out...at least put a fresh coat of paint on the door and put a new lockset on the door as well. Be sure to key both the deadbolt and door knob with the same key for convenience of entry.
I could go on and on. But if you truly need help...call me and I will set up a time to meet with you at your home and make a list of things for you to do. I can also bring in items for staging or if the home is vacant and void of furnishings, I can bring in items for staging to take away that "empty" house feeling. Feel free to call me anytime.

Neutral color paint is the cheapest and easiest way to spruce up a home. But the first and most important thing is cleaness.... be indoors or outdoors! Good Luck with your sale.

Let's not forget curb appeal..fresh mulch, flowers and making sure the front door and or storm door are in clean and like new condition. Shutters should be clean and fresh too.
A good experienced agent will walk you through all this and be sure to actually do it!

Curb appeal is very important. Freshly mowed lawn, seasonal flowers blooming outside, perhaps a vase of the same flowers in the dining room or kitchen, and the condition of the front door are all inexpensive and easily accomplished items that will add value and help the home sell faster.
Best wishes, Jim
This is THE MOST EFFECTIVE way to increase the value of your home.
Buyers will stop focusing on things that catch their attention around your house, and instead focus on the house. Buyers will remember a house that is exceptionally clean and well kept and will associate that the rest of the house-- everything they dont see-- is also in good working order. They will assume that the seller has kept the house in excellent condition.
This also goes to the outside. Clean your yard. Clean your gutters. Clean your windows. A well kept house from the exterior gives a good impression to what to expect on the interior. People often slow down in front of my home and honk to say "I Love your House...." -- what they mean is they love that I keep a nice garden and yard and it has "curb appeal" -- because they have never been in my house. But if they did, they would find it is just as tidy. Everything in its place means that it has room and space for a new buyer -- should I ever decide to move.
Give me a "BEST ANSWER" or "THUMBS UP" if this answered your question. Thanks!
