There are a number of ways that will improve a sellers prospects of getting their home sold. Some improvements, overtime, help to increase a homes value while others are done more for your own pleasure. Working with Davis,Ca homes for sale and homeowners in the surrounding areas, most have realized home improvements increase your sales prospects if your home is on the market. Some of the easier and less expensive improvements include:
Kitchen– Cabinets should be stripped, then either stained or painted, this will give the kitchen that fresh look buyers are looking for. Your appliances are more appealing if they coordinate in color and scheme and will increase the appearance factor in your kitchen. Most small appliances are reasonably inexpensive.
Bathroom– Update that toilet, old toilets tend to show their age and are a lot harder to keep clean. if you can’t replace the whole toilet, at least replace the toilet seat. It gives the impression of a new toilet. Also, bleach your grout. Replacing grout is hard work, however there are bleaching products in the marketplace that does a good job at restoring your grouts natural color. Another good suggestion would be adding storage in your bathroom. You can increase storage by adding shelves or a medicine cabinet. These are cheap, easy to assemble and hang.
General Improvements– Lighting, update your light fixtures, using energy-efficient fittings. Consider replacing your ceiling fans, there are many attractive styles available. If you have rooms that are painted plain white or dark colors, consider a coat of neutral paint. White is boring, while dark colors can make a room feel very close and uncomfortable.
