Ten Low Cost Interior Improvement

There are ten, low cost, interior improvements that could possibly add thousands to the bottom line of your home.

  1. Light and bright homes. Add high intensity light bulbs and be sure to clean all light shades and covers
  2. Clean homes. Do a thorough cleaning throughout, no matter what the season is. Give special attention to the following areas: Windows, screens, counter tops, appliance tops, mirrors, ovens, sinks, toilets, and tub/shower walls
  3. Clean windows. Clean all windows inside and out. Launder drapes and curtains and clean all blinds
  4. Clean carpets and waxed floors. Replace or repair damaged areas of the floor or flooring covering. Replace with beige, new material (carpet, tile, linoleum), if beyond cleaning
  5. Spacious rooms. Arrange furniture and decorations to improve each room. Remove unnecessary items that do not fit in
  6. Colors that blend with anything. Consider brightening things up with a fresh coat of paint. Think white, off-shite. or beige. Such colors make rooms look bigger and brighter, and these colors are most likely to go with the ne buyer’s furnishings
  7. Closet and cabinet space. Neatly arrange everything in your closets, cabinets, and other storage areas (including the garage). Get rid of unnecessary items.
  8. Pay attention to TINY details. Fix all of the “little things” (loose doorknobs, leaky faucets, towel racks, clean and repair caulk areas)
  9. Smell. Smell is one of the most memory inducing senses.
  10. Personal Property. Buyers are NOT buying your personal property. Move all collections to a storage unit – preferably offsite
