Looking to sell your home in the foreseeable future? Here are 5 things that are bringing down the value of your home, along with some quick fixes that will ensure your home won’t sit on the market for long!
1. Dull Landscaping, Brown Grass, and Dead Plants
An easy fix? Keep it simple with easy-maintenance plants!
2. Popcorn Ceilings
Get a softening solution, a scraper, and get to work! A little sweat and you can shave a few years off your ceilings (literally). Save The Popcorn For The Movies!
3. Primary Colored Walls
Keep it neutral to appeal to the majority. It’s difficult for potential buyers to imagine their own furniture and decor in a space with overly-unique color schemes. Choosing neutral, light colors will create the illusion of a larger space.
4. Dust Bunnies
The term sounds cute, and we all love an old charming house with lots of character, but that does not mean that you need to leave the dirt and grime that come along with it. Pull out your Swiffer and get to work, OR hit the “easy” button and hire a professional to do the dirty work for you. It’ll pay for itself in the long run!
This one is simple. Your home and all of its best features should be presented in the best possible way. Before listing your home, it’s a great idea to simplify. Again, this helps potential buyers truly envision themselves living in the space.
