You want your home to be everything it can possibly be, right? When you call a place your own, you want to take care of it, make it something special, and comfortable. But it’s easy to become overwhelmed by all the upkeep, allowing little details to be neglected. These details can add up, and before you know it your home can fall into a state of disrepair.

So what happens when it’s time to sell? You’ll need to get it back into shape. But even more importantly, you’ll want to make it stand out from the crowd. With so many other homes on the market, you’ll need something to put yours over the edge, driving all the buyers to your property.

1. Moldings to Remember

Install crown molding in your home. It’s an easy, inexpensive way to add a special touch to your overall presentation. While it can be done yourself without too much trouble, hiring a professional installer can really make your space shine. And while you’re at it, don’t stop at the crown moldings; go all out and have the decorative trim installed all throughout. The more you’re willing to add, the better your house will look to interested buyers.

2.  Cabinets are King

Sure, new homeowners can bring in shelves and cabinets, but how great is it when storage space is already built-in? Even though your home may not come equipped with built-in cabinets, they are easy and relatively inexpensive to install yourself.

Sparing the interested parties in having to invest in and secure their own shelving will give them so much more incentive to consider your property over some of the others they’ve seen. But be sure to take care in where you install the storage space. It needs to be easily accessible, out of the way, and logical. Otherwise, it could rapidly become a turnoff.

3. Illuminate Your Space

You might not ordinarily consider it, but lighting can really boost the vitality of your living space. Just think about it; would you feel warm, comfortable, and at home in a dimly-lit space where the lights are weak, uninspired or flickering? No, of course not. So why would anyone feel any differently when in the market for a new place to live?

However, it takes more than just strong lighting. Find fixtures that add flare and character to the living space. Unique lighting fixtures can easily be found at thrift stores, flea markets, or antique malls at a price you cannot turn down.

4. A Comfortable Reading Nook

You might not want to leave after installing a reading nook. Just imagine how irresistible it can make your home appear to a crowd of book loving buyers!

If any spaces in your house lack in appeal or purpose, reinvent them with some simple ingenuity. Building a platform in front of a large window surrounded by bookshelves is all it takes to transform your empty space into the ideal spot for reading, comfort, and relaxation.

5. Upgrade through Hardware

Another fantastic and affordable way to add charm, character, and appeal to your home is to upgrade the hardware. What exactly do we mean? Well, you can…

  • Give your home a vintage glow by replacing the door handles throughout your home.

  • Invest in crystal, colored glass, porcelain, or antique brass for the doorknobs on your front door or any other door throughout.

  • Do the same for your bathrooms and kitchen cabinets, which are often big selling points in any home purchase.

Just imagine what a little extra pizazz in your hardware can do for your home’s buyer appeal. It can be the little detail that takes your home from blah to wow!

If you are intimidated by the prospect of getting your home in shape to sell, do not stress. The five tips we’ve covered are easy to execute and easily capable of putting your home over the edge for prospective buyers.

Remember, any money or effort spent on sprucing up the home is an investment in yielding the most profit. You can always overlook these seemingly small details, but they will make a noteworthy—even surprising—difference in the final sale price.
