Small Projects That Can Make Your Home More Attractive to Buyers

When selling your home, you want it to look as good as possible to attract the best, most qualified buyers.

You do not want to take on a major renovation project prior to selling, of course. But there are some smaller projects you can complete that will give buyers the best impression possible. From painting the front door to cleaning up your landscaping, here are a few small projects you can easily handle on an affordable budget.

Paint the Front Door

You won’t believe what a difference a fresh coat of paint on your entry door will make. This is a great option if you can’t afford to paint the whole house but still want to make an impact. While you’re at it, add new house numbers.

Clean up the Landscaping

To boost your curb appeal, mow the lawn, trim the hedges, plant a few flowers or add potted plants, and do some weeding. Potential buyers will be able to see your efforts as soon as they pull up.

Build a Fire Pit

To help buyers envision themselves enjoying the backyard in summer and fall, consider adding a simple fire pit. This one detail can show buyers what a retreat the yard can be at the end of a long day.

Paint the Rooms

Just like the front door, you won’t believe how much of an impact a fresh coat of paint on the interior can make. Choose neutral colors and paint any room that needs it. This will give your home an immediate facelift for a very low cost.

Enhance the Bathroom

Buyers want to envision themselves retreating to their bathroom at the end of the day or to get ready in the morning. Show them how accommodating and pretty it can be. Switch out the fixtures, replace the vanity, put in some new light fixtures, add new hardware to the cabinets and incorporate shelving.

Clean up moldy areas and address messy grout. These are just a few ways to spruce up your bathroom before listing the home for sale.

Wash the Windows

Wash both the interior and exterior windows for a clean shine that buyers will appreciate. Nothing says neglect like streaky, cloudy, dirty windows.

Clean the Floors

Everyone wants to start off on the right foot when moving into a new home. Have your floors cleaned as a courtesy to the new buyer. Refresh your hardwood floors or hire a carpet cleaning company for your rugs. Buyers will appreciate the extra effort, especially if you smoke or have pets.
