There's a lot to do when preparing to #sellyourhome, and some #homeimprovementtips to make it easier to sell might be on the list. When you need to get your home looking its best but don't have a lot of extra cash to spend on it, try a few of these simple tricks that will help sell your home faster without breaking the bank.
Cleaner Is Better...
If you can't afford to replace the carpets in your home to make it look better, consider vacuuming them instead. Carpets that have seen better days can look much better when they have been steam cleaned. Many companies offer deals on carpet cleaning, or you can rent a machine and do it yourself.
Cleaning the outside of the house really adds to curb appeal. Rent a pressure washer for the day and clean the driveway and outside walls. Patios and decks can benefit from pressure washing as well. It will leave concrete and wood looking like new.
Change Small Details...
If you can't afford to put in new cabinets, make them look fresh with new hardware. Simply adding new handles to cabinets in the kitchen and bathroom can really improve their appearance and add a more modern touch.
If you don't have time or money to paint the entire exterior of your home, try painting just the front door. It will create a bright, welcoming accent.
Cover Old Furniture...
Staging your #home for sale is expensive, and difficult when you are still living there and also on a budget. Instead of replacing furniture, buy slipcovers to make them look new. Colorful throws and pillows can change the look of the room as well and make buyers see it in a different light.
Scratched up tables can benefit from the same treatment as a couch. Use a tablecloth for the dining room table and place colorful placemats as an option to cover a coffee table or end tables.
Simple touches can really change the way a buyer sees your home and help you to sell it quickly. They don't have to be expensive; you can change the look of your home easily at a small cost.

Inspection day on a 3 bed 2.5 bath 1 car garage townhome in Tamarac that one of my clients got under contract over the weekend. I love the style of the sinks. The quartz countertops in the kitchen with the bamboo flooring is really nice as well. Freshly painted. New carpet, new flooring throughout. Nice property overall for a 1st time home buyer. #realtor#realestate#homeinspection#quartzcountertops#updated#1sttimehomebuyer
Renovation loans are easy if your are working with the right loan officer! Labor Day killed me this should have been ctc In 17 days but whatever 🤷🏽♂️. This is the power of upfront underwriting and loan commitments vs a simple pre-approval letter‼️ My client is doing new kitchen, baths, flooring and once Reno is completed they will have 50k of equity. Not bad for a 1st time homebuyer who originally wanted something move in ready but got discouraged when he kept on losing offers due to all the competition in the market. I’m happy he decided to listen to my advice and shifted his mindset to think like an investor 💪🏽
