Selling your home can be difficult today because of the drop in sales in the housing market. Homes are not being sold for the same price that they were purchased as housing costs are plummeting with the market. There are some inexpensive upgrades that can be made to the home that can help it sell much quicker and for a better price than the market shows. The following are some inexpensive tips to upgrading your home to help you sell it.
- Go Green – You can make your home more desirable by putting in some green and ecologically friendly aspects. Switch out your existing lighting with low energy LED lighting or other more economical light types. You can also plant some shade trees that offer a cooler home. Install a downspout with a barrel to collect rainwater for watering the garden. Low flow toilets and shower heads can also make the home more green and help it to sell much quicker.
- Kitchen – Bring your kitchen up to date by changing some small parts of it. The pulls and hinges on the cabinets and drawers can be changed out to something more modern that adds a nicer touch to it. Replace the old sink hardware with new and see how quickly the look of the kitchen is updated. If you have some DIY skills, you can always change the paint or the stain color of the cabinets to make them look fresher.
