Top 3 Things To Fix BEFORE You Sell Your Home

Listing your home for sale is a daunting concept. There are so many practical things to consider nevermind the emotional attachment you may be dealing with.

If you are handy with tools there are some things you need to fix before you list your home for sale and in this article, we will be talking about the top three things that will take your home from a five to a ten with little money spent and nothing more than moderate elbow grease.

Top 3 things to fix before you sell your home:

things to fix before you sell your home

Bathroom grout

This is a no-brainer. Bathrooms are one of the few rooms in the home that will boost the value of your home and what is one of the first things people see when they walk into it? The grout. If it looks dirty and gross it will be an instant turn off. This is the room that is supposed to help people get clean, not feel dirty.

To clean the grout in your bathrooms all you need is a spray bottle filled with a half/half solution of vinegar and warm water. Just spray it onto the grout, let it sit for a few minutes and then take an old toothbrush and scrub. This will do wonders in no time flat and leave you with grout that looks brand new.

If the stains are really bad you can sprinkle some baking soda and water onto them before you spray the vinegar, let it sit for a bit and then do the scrubbing.

Replace drawer and cabinet hardware

Nothing is quite as simple or home-altering as changing the hardware on cabinets and drawers so take this into consideration before you list. It sounds like a super simple change–and it is– but it can leave you with cupboards that look brand new, especially if you give them a new coat of stain or paint too.

Fix squeaky doors

When potential homebuyers come to your home to check it out they are definitely going to notice if the doors squeak and while this may not be a dealbreaker, it isn’t going to help you get top dollar for your home. The good news is that this is a cheap and easy problem to fix.

To get this done before you list, all you need is some petroleum jelly. Take the hinges of the door apart, slather some jelly on and put it all back together. This will keep everything working smoothly and with no more squeaking.

These are three easy things to fix before selling your home so don’t forget them and make sure they are taken care of before potential homebuyers come through.

Transform Your Home With These 3 Colour Tips

transform your home with colour

Whether you are moving out of your old home, moving into a new one, or both, you will need to take a long hard look at the shades on the walls. You’ll find it’s easy to transform your home with the right colour tips.

When moving out you need to consider what the person who may be purchasing your home likes and when you are moving in you need to consider what will make you feel comfortable and at home. Both are important and they can be wildly different than one another.

Here are some tips that you can use in both situations:

Follow colour trends

The paint industry announces colour trends each year. These pretty color trend reports are generally filled with photos of the colors, both swatches and in homes. Unless you are starting from scratch you are not going to want to use all of them each year, that would be an awful lot of work.

It is a good idea, however, to pick one and incorporate it to transform your home with colour. You don’t have to limit yourself to paint either, you might want to incorporate the shades through embellishments and accessories.

Be brave with colour tips

Don’t let yourself get scared off of the vibrant colors if you are choosing them for your own home. You might want to steer clear of them if you are trying to sell your home though. In that case, you will want to stick to easier to swallow colors, they tend to help homes sell better.

Again, you don’t have to work in brave colour tips through paint alone, you can also put up some vibrant artwork to bring a little life into any room.

Fall in love with monochromatic colour schemes

These are fantastic when you are selling your home as most people will find it easy to imagine their own items filling up the space because there isn’t really anything to clash with.

This type of colour scheme lends itself to many styles in terms of decor and artwork.

Keep these top three colour tips in mind and you will sell your old home quickly and find it easy to move into your new one for the long haul.
