Mini Home Makeover Tips to Make Buyers Bite
When it comes to selling your home, you have to stand out from the rest of the crowd. It’s important to do a little extra to your home; however, you don’t have to go overboard either. These home features will have buyers biting at your home sale in no time.
Replacing door knobs, cabinet handles and faucets, is the quickest way to make-over your kitchen and bathrooms. For around $60 to $70 dollars you can buy the most popular faucets that get a lot of attention from prospective buyers. Fixtures are like the crown jewels of your home and this is a quick and easy way to grab your buyer.
If you don’t have the luxury items such a whirlpool bath, steam shower or marble countertops, it may be more practical to fix the unattractive aspects of your existing bath. Remove the sheet mirror and globe lights and replace them with an elegant framed mirror and sconce lighting. This definitely will be an eye catcher.
Buyers do like the granite counter tops; but it’s not really about the granite. It’s really about the slab and not having grout lines on the counters. Slab counter tops that are non porous like granite and that are easy to care for is the way to go. This look can be attainable with concrete, limestone, soapstone and marble, with a very good sealant.
Stunning Hardwood Floors
Most buyers are looking for hardwood floors and most Realtors® will agree. And, best of all, you can bet that they will have longevity and will never go out of style. Synthetic wood floors like Pergo are also a good option, but you should know that laminate will not fool anyone. They make a hollow sound when you walk on them.
First impressions go a long way. If you have a nice entry way, it makes your place feel more like home right away. If you don’t have one you can make one by adding a table or chest to create a welcoming area.
