Hope you are doing well and that you and your family are staying safe. Quite a few of my clients are considering selling their houses, and if you’re in that same boat, now is a great time to do a little prep work. Here are a few home-improvement tips I recommend to get your house ready now, and sell later:
- Embrace Spring Cleaning
Now is that special time of year when baseboards and ceiling fans finally get the attention they deserve. Details like these may seem tedious, but a pristine home is guaranteed to grab your buyer’s attention.
- Unleash the Power of Paint
Whether you redo an entire room, touch up some scuffs, or add some pizzazz to your outdoor planters, a paintbrush can revitalize your living space like a magic wand. Best of all, it’s fun for the whole family.
- Tile Around
From backsplashes to bathroom accents, tiling is a simple and affordable way to add value to your home. Just find a pattern you like and start putting the pieces together.
- Fix Your Fixtures
If you’ve been contemplating a new kitchen faucet or fresh set of shutters, give in to your impulses and install them yourself. In less than a weekend, you can add another upgrade for buyers to rave about.
- DIY Furniture
You don’t have to be a master carpenter to build some of your own furniture. The internet is loaded with tutorials for everything from headboards to closet shelves. All you need are a few easy-to-find materials.
Good luck with your home improvements, and feel free to send me your before and after photos! I may even share them on my social channels. (With your permission, of course.)
