This week’s blog post is for the eyes and ears of all those considering putting your house on the market in the near to distant future. I recently found an article from the National Association of Realtors magazine listing 5 potential ways one might easily and quickly boost the value of their home before putting it on the market. These 5 tips are especially helpful, because they can apply to any home, no matter the size or the price range. The list is as follows: declutter, makeover the kitchen, freshen up the bathroom, paint, and exterior touch ups. Each tip is described in further detail and the article lists an average cost range for each project as well as the potential return that could result from applying each idea to your home. It is amazing how such small details can make such a big difference. Big renovations can be done; however, this article focuses on getting the most “bang for your buck” with the least amount of effort. Remember, first impressions are everything and these flexible tips should be beneficial to all - every bit helps!
