So you want to put your Doctor Phillips home on the market to sell? Here are several different ways to spruce it up and add more value.
Give your interior walls a fresh coat of paint with a neutral color that will make space look bigger and make it easy for potential buyers to visualize their things in it. Improve your home’s curb appeal by installing a new steel front door with lots of character. You should be able to find one reasonably priced, but if you can’t afford a new door, make your existing door more inviting with a color that makes it pop. And make sure to replace that old dirty doormat, too!
Power wash the exterior of your home. In most cases, a good washing can look almost as good as a fresh coat of paint. If that doesn’t brighten it up as much as you’d hoped, consider a new paint job. Don’t forget to power wash the walkways, driveway, and patio.
Spruce up your yard by patching any bald spots with fresh sod and trim trees and bushes. Draw attention to your house by planting flowers and greenery along walkways and in front of the house. It’s more economical to plant perennials that come back every year rather than annuals that die off in a year.
If your kitchen cabinets are in pretty good shape and don’t require painting or staining, upgrade the doorknobs and drawer handles for a new, updated look. You can update your bathroom cabinets and drawers this way as well.
Update your bathroom fixtures such as light fixtures, faucets, shower head and towel bars. A new vanity and mirror can be added as well if needed. Update outlet covers switch plates, doorknobs, curtain rods and light fixtures throughout your home. Make sure to choose items in finishes and colors with broad appeal. Installing ceiling fans can cut costs on electricity bills which makes them an appealing addition to any home. Add character to your home by installing crown molding. Fence your backyard: Buyers with pets or children will appreciate the security and privacy of an enclosed backyard.
