TIP # 1
1. Doorways and decks:
First impressions count. New doors, entries and decks score with buyers.
2. Polish the landscape.
Prune bushes and trees, mulch beds, cut the grass.
3. Open up:
Remove non-structural walls to create the open floor plan buyers love.
4. Take care of maintenance:
plumbing, paintwork, siding, windows, doors, insulation, furnace, AC systems. Power wash the exterior.
5. Lighten up:
Brighten up small spaces to make them feel larger. Open curtains and blinds. Fix damaged windows. Add motion detectors for outdoor lights.
6. Floor them:
Repair damaged flooring. You could replace old wall-to-wall carpets and old vinyl and linoleum with new flooring.
7. Spiff up kitchen and bath:
Re-face cabinets and install up-to-date hardware, clean tile grout, apply fresh caulk, replace faucets, install comfort-height, low flush toilets.
8. Green all updates:
Make sure anything you replace is Energy Star rated.
9. Repaint rooms with neutral colors:
Touch up where you can.
10. Fix anything that stands out for the wrong reason:
Like old wallpaper, broken thresholds, cracked walkways.
