What A Difference A Little Paint and Wallpaper Removal Make In How A Home Shows

Real Estate Agent with The English Team

One of my listing clients just spent a couple hundred dollars repainting kitchen cabinets, removing wallpaper from the kitchen walls and repainting with a neutral color and a few minor cosmetic touch ups. 


I could not believe the difference in the before and after photos for this home.  Take a look for yourself.

I have a handy man who does this type work at rock bottom prices.  In my opinion, the home looks 20 years younger after the expenditure of just a couple hundred dollars. 

A do it yourself type home owner could make this change for less than one hundred bucks.

Now I just need to get it sold!

Here is the front of the home:
