HOME IMPROVEMENTS

SMART. SIMPLE. AFFORDABLE.

Most buyers desire move-in-ready houses, or at least houses with a minimal amount of improvements with lower cost values. If needed, remodeled kitchens and baths can go a long way, but here we are talking about cosmetic improvements that show your home in its best light when trying to sell, to help you get top dollar for your home. 

PAINT WITH NEUTRALS

Decorated Bedroom

Bathtub

The two rooms potential buyers will remember are the kitchen and bathrooms when they view homes. You want yours to be remembered for the right reasons and stand out from the rest. Give these rooms a little extra humph even if remodeling isn’t in the budget.

STYLE KITCHEN AND BATHROOMS

UPDATE WINDOW TREATMENTS

Bedroom

Heavy, layered draperies, and swags make a room seem dark, old and tired. Remove them! If you have any torn window shades, or bent mini-blinds replace them as well. Light sheers that just frame the window not only let in the light,

Modern Living Room

It’s not always possible to replace flooring whether it’s carpeting or hardwood. Make the best out of your budget and what you have.
