When you’re trying to sell your home, you want to get it in top condition. This can include staging, making energy-saving improvements and fixing anything that’s broken. But what should you do if you’re not especially, well, good at those kinds of things?
How can a non-handy homeowner get his or her property ready for sale? Are there easy-enough-for-anyone improvements to work on? Absolutely. Here are a few ideas:
- Paint: You don’t need any special skills to repaint a room, other than an able body and some supplies. For particular advice on changing dark rooms to light ones, see this article.
- Add organizers: Buyers like to see custom features and, with closets, these are as easy to add as buying organizers and putting them in.
- Add new linens: Simply replacing your sheets and comforters can give your bedrooms a fresh new look.
- Add new bath accessories: Similarly, adding a new shower curtain, a bath mat and/or towels can spruce up your bathroom’s appeal.
- Go green! You don’t need a green thumb to add a few plants inside or outside your home. Just keep them watered and trimmed, and watch the overall effect on your rooms!
These are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to quick and easy improvements. We can’t say enough about cleaning, for example, which makes things look newer and more valuable. Also, simple reorganizing can do wonders for a home’s sense of space and style.
So what are you waiting for? Handy or not, now’s the time to get your home looking its best.
