It can be so simple...

Real Estate Agent with Atlanta Communities 303302

There are simple fixes around the home that can make a big difference when getting ready to sell. For instance, my next door neighbor just replaced her mailbox and so did I. They were starting to look old and beat up so we changed out the boxes and repainted the metal support pieces and repainted the numbers. Wow, they look really good now. There was an investment of time and not much money that made a huge difference.

The neighbor across the street put in wrought iron handrails at his front steps. I am sure it did not take long to do, but cost a bit more than my mailbox. The point is, small projects around the house can improve the saleability of your home without having to spend a fortune to do it.

So, if you are wondering what you can do to spruce up your home for sale, but don't want to take out a loan to do it, give us a call. We can guide you to the smart fixes that will get your home sold.

Hello Peter - regular maintenance goes a long way.  True for property or for our personal being.  It makes a difference.

Hi Peter - best to say on top of the maintenance in the house.  Many neglected little things add up.
