Quite a few of our clients are considering selling their Brooklyn houses, and if you’re in that same boat, now is a great time to do a little prep work. Here are a few home-improvement tips we recommend to get your house ready now, and sell later:
1. Embrace Spring Cleaning
Now is that special time of year when baseboards and ceiling fans finally get the attention they deserve. Details like these may seem tedious, but a pristine home is guaranteed to grab your buyer’s attention.
2. Unleash the Power of Paint
Whether you redo an entire room, touch up some scuffs, or add some pizzazz to your outdoor planters, a paintbrush can revitalize your living space like a magic wand. Best of all, it’s fun for the whole family.
3. Tile Around
From backsplashes to bathroom accents, tiling is a simple and affordable way to add value to your home. Just find a pattern you like and start putting the pieces together.
4. Fix Your Fixtures
If you’ve been contemplating a new kitchen faucet or fresh set of shutters, give in to your impulses and install them yourself. In less than a weekend, you can add another upgrade for buyers to rave about.
5. DIY Furniture
You don’t have to be a master carpenter to build some of your own furniture. The internet is loaded with tutorials for everything from headboards to closet shelves. All you need are a few easy-to-find materials.
