Sellers, Scrub That Tub! - 03/23/10 06:36 PM
Believe it or not but potential buyers may walk away if bathrooms are outdated and unappealing. Here are some low-cost waysto give the facilities a face-lift:
• Scrub-a-dub-dub. Give everything, including drawers and cabinets, a deep cleaning. • Paint the walls. Remove aging wallpaper and paint the space with a bright semi-gloss shade made for use in the bathroom. • Replace aging fixtures. Put a tub liner over the old tub and update sinks, toilets, and faucets. • Accessorize. Buy fresh, new linens, rugs, and shower curtains. Need more tips on selling your home?

With various events in the economy, do you, or someone you know, feel like it is difficult to afford your home? Have you tried to sell your personal home but cannot based on the current real estate market? Well this maybe just the thing to give you relief. Beginning April 5, the Obama administration will encourage under-water mortgage borrowers to avoid foreclosure and instead alleviate their financial burden by short selling their home in a new, (what we hope to be) streamlined process.
The new short sale program will offer a cash payment to the homeowner, as well as to the servicer and second-lien (2 comments)
