It just takes one buyer to sell your home

As the all-important spring selling season approaches in an historically slow housing market, sellers need to do all they can to market their home - and that includes staging it to attract and “wow” potential buyers. Home stagers know just the right moves to take a house from bland to grand and bring home the biggest return on investment.
Attention to detail throughout the home can make the difference between a house that sells and one that sits on the market In particular, improvements to the kitchen and bath - the two rooms that sell a home - will always help bring in the buyers.
Here are some easy, effective home improvements and tricks trade that can make a big change without breaking the bank, and all the difference in selling and enjoying a home.
Curb appeal: First impressions are everything, and this has never been truer than in today’s market. To leave a positive impression on buyers, take care of any exterior maintenance issues before buyers arrive, such as power washing walkways and patios, cleaning your gutters, touching up peeling paint, replacing broken light bulbs, edging and mulching beds, and adding fresh annuals. Some free things you can do include polishing your front door hardware and sweeping away pesky cobwebs.
Bathroom: Give an outdated bath a pick-me-up by replacing your existing lighting, faucets and hardware with updated styles.
Kitchen: Give your kitchen a mini facelift on a budget by repainting your cabinets instead of replacing them. For a more contemporary look, consider a semi-gloss espresso brown. For a more traditional look, opt for a semi-gloss creamy white. Complete the makeover by adding new hardware. Considering professional help? Ask your local painter if they can spray a lacquer finish on your cabinets. This treatment is more expensive than painting the cabinets yourself but the result looks like a factory finish.
It’s important to complete all your improvements before your home goes on the market because as the saying goes…you never have a second chance to make a first impression. It just takes one buyer to sell your home.
