Are you preparing your house for a sale in the near future? If so, there are some simple things you can do to add value to your property. You can spend a few days working on these projects and see an increase of interest from potential buyers.
Paint The Front Door It takes little time and little money to paint your front door. Choose a color that will stand out, but work well with the color of your home. The way you house looks on the outside is a buyer’s first impression of your home. Make it a good one.
Clean Up the Yard All around the outside of your house, spend some time cleaning up. Make sure all bushes have been trimmed and branches removed. Rake and bag up leaves or cut grass. Use an edger on sidewalks. Keep your grass cut and in good condition. This might require extra water or fertilizer. Put out pots of flowers or plant in the garden.
Enhance the Bathroom and Kitchen Your kitchen and bathrooms are prime rooms of interest to buyers. If you have limited funds for remodeling, focus on these areas. There are some simple fixes you can make in these rooms that will have a great impact. In a bathroom you can replace the toilet or sink for more updated fixtures.
In a kitchen, you can switch out the cabinet and drawer fronts. This will give you a new look at a fraction of the cost. You can also replace counter tops in this room. If you have little money to replace counter tops, consider just changing out the top of an island.
If your budget is limited, do what you can in the way of sprucing your place up. Some investment companies are willing to pay cash for houses in “as is” condition. Here at Houston Fast Home Buyers, we purchase “as is” homes from sellers in the Houston, Texas area.
