Selling or Buying a Home this Spring?

Here are a few other tips from the experts at HGTV to put your house at the top of a buyer’s list.

  1. Half-empty closets.
    Every buyer is looking for storage, so remove half the items from your closets and organize what’s left in there.
  2. Light it up.
    Maximize the light in your home by taking down the drapes, cleaning the windows, changing the lampshades and increasing the wattage of your light bulbs.
  3. Conceal the critters.
    Not every buyer is a dog- or cat-lover, so put away your food bowls and litter boxes and remove pet hair.
  4. The kitchen comes first.
    The benefits of remodeling your kitchen are endless, not the least of which is getting 85% of your money back.
  5. The first impression is the only impression.
    Spruce up your home’s exterior with inexpensive shrubs and brightly colored flowers. You can typically get a 100% return on money you put into curb appeal.

Purchased a New Home. Now What?
