When presenting your home to prospective buyers, first impressions are crucial. Buyers begin judging your home the moment they see it, and generally they prefer homes that are well-maintained, clean and clutter-free so they can picture themselves living in. That is why home improvements particularly if they address the anticipated needs of buyer can boost your home’s saleability and sale price.

Here are a few proven, cost-effective tips that will help your home look its best:

Exterior

• Mow and rake the lawn, trim hedges, weed and edge gardens

• Sweep sidewalks and driveway, pick up any litter

• Repair gutters and eaves, touch up exterior paint

• Plant extra flowers for color, or place potted plants beside the front door

• Clean or paint front door, polish front door hardware, ensure doorbell works

Interior

• Clean and tidy the entrance, clear stairs and halls, store all excess furniture

• Eliminate unpleasant ordors such as cigarette smoke, animal scent, or musty areas

• Brighten interiors with fresh, light-toned paint

• Brighten rooms by installing high wattage light bulbs and turning them on

• Shampoo carpets, clean and wax floors

• Organize kitchen countertops — removing appliances if necessary — to make them look spacious

• Clean kitchen countertops, cabinets, appliances, washer and dryer

• Organize and clean out closets to make them look larger

• Clean and freshen bathrooms, put out clean towels, minimize clutter

• Clean mirrors and windows so they sparkle

• Organize and clean garage and basement

• Perform necessary minor repairs and touch-ups to walls, windows, fixtures, etc.

Tips for Showings and Open Houses

• Be absent so buyers feel more comfortable making comments

• Light the fireplace, open the drapes, play quiet background music

• Keep pets outdoors

These are just a few ideas to get you started. I know what today’s buyers are looking for and can provide

more ideas that will maximize your home’s appeal. Remember, a few easy and inexpensive improvements can produce big returns on your investment.
