Spring is a time of year many homeowners think about selling their home.  Real estate markets are very competitive now and sellers need to make an effort to get the best price and sell their home as quickly as possible.  Here are some things you can do to make your home more attractive to buyers.


Fireplace facelift

Fireplaces are a natural gathering place and focal point.  Refresh yours with an updated mantel finish, decorative surround and/or new accessories.  If it’s brick consider painting or whitewashing to give it a fresh look.


Update kitchen backsplash

Adding decorative tile over a painted wall is not that expensive and you can do it yourself with a little instruction.  If existing tile is outdated consider replacing it.  This is a bigger and more expensive project and may require professional help.


A fresh coat of paint

You can give every room in your home a new look with new paint.  Use coordinated contemporary colors.  Avoid the urge to be too bold…it might put off some prospects.


New entry door

Your entry door is the first impression for prospective buyers.  If yours is outdated or in ill repair consider replacing it with a new one.  Many options and price points are available.

Refresh your kitchen

A full blown remodel is expensive but you don’t need to go that far to make improvements.  Paint or clean the cabinets.  Replace pulls and knobs.  Paint the walls and replace window coverings and accessories.


Consider new furniture and accessories

Every room can look better if the furniture is new or at least in good condition.  Complimentary accessories are an inexpensive way to bring a sense of style.  You don’t have to break the bank, but make sure your furnishings are a plus, not a minus.
