Home Selling: Four DIY Tricks to Maximize the Curb Appeal
If you have a house on sale, do not let things adrift and use your practical skills to increase the chances to boost your home’s value without wasting too much time looking for clients. We have already pointed out some elements that will help you sell faster and get you more money, beyond your initial expectations. This time we are back with four DIY tricks to maximize the curb appeal of the house, some advice at hand and easy to carry out, as explained by Today.com.
First of all, remember that making a good first impression is of utmost importance. As a consequence, do the easy fixes, such as adding sod, greenery, colorful plants, a new door with a glass insert, driveway lighting, paint and windows. Also, remove large bushes and shrubs that prevent potential buyers from noticing the details of your home’s exterior.
The living room is the highlight of the home so give the room some character. You don’t have to complicate things so keep them simple: add a mounted TV set and a fireplace beneath to give the wall an original look. To make these changes stand out to any customer walking in, let the natural light flow into the room.
In the same context, spruce up the walls by adding extra color, a change easy to make and always making a difference. You can jazz up the walls with wainscoting that you can highlight by directing some light on it. A column standing between two rooms also gains an important visual weight and cannot be missed by a customer.
Kitchen can also be of huge interest to a potential buyer. Real estate agents have a saying in the own circles: kitchen sells the home. So proceed to some décor changes here as well, such as put on new tiles, even if on smaller surfaces, just enough to draw attention. Apply a fresh layer of paint for an overall clean and fresh look. And since we’re in the kitchen, make minor repairs, such as leaky sinks and pipes, burn marks on the counter or tables and poor lightning or else the new tiles won’t matter at all in the end.
